Looking for a bread recipe that is light and airy.

I'm looking for a bread recipe made from scratch that is light and airy. It seems the breads I make always come out a little on the heavy side. Thanks!


Homemade bread that is too dense and heavy is probably the result of dough that was too dry. The solution is to add a little more liquid, about a teaspoon at a time until the consistency of the dough is just right...soft, but not wet. Practice helps one to become familiar with the correct dough consistency for breads.

Here's a yeast bread recipe, with instructions using a "bread machine", "dough hook", and "by hand", that is described as having a texture that is a soft, light and airy: Simply Awesome Homemade White Bread.
