Sweet, airy, yeasty bread

yddeyma | Jan 5, 2013 04:41 PM

When I was growing up my friend's mother made this sweet, airy, yeasty bread. It was so good. It had giant air bubbles in it so when you sliced the bread it had great divets for collecting jam or whatever you wanted to spread on it. It was very delicate and light and airy and was slightly sweet.

I have no idea what type of bread it is, and I have never made bread myself, but I would like to try to make some myself. I know she used a starter, but that's about all.

Anyone have some recipes that may be a match? Also, beginner bread tips may be helpful. I do not have a bread machine but I do have a mixer with dough hook attachment.
