Plain White Toast (Softest Ever)

It’s not the first time I’ve tried this recipe, just that results had never been this good. I was taken aback when slicing the bread, so cottony soft and fluffy. I guess the difference this time is that I had gained better appreciation of making bread over time and had really been very careful in…
