White Bread

I had no work yesterday so I decided to make a batch of white bread using Grandma H's recipe. Of course I altered her recipe as usual- I usually add Canola oil to the recipe in place of the shortening, but I added less than normal (2 Tb) plus 4 Tb melted butter. I used 3 cups of warm water in this recipe and didn't add the usual mashed potato and potato water. Nonetheless it turned out very soft and flavorful. I guess the butter helped.
