My mother-in-law gave me my first bread machine 3 years ago. Since then, I can confidently say I have made at least 150 loaves of bread. NONE of them have been as soft and tasty as this one! If I could manage to slice it perfectly even, it could easily replace our favorite sandwich bread from the store!
Best Ever Homemade Sandwich Bread
2 cups warm water
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp salt
2 1/2 Tbsp butter, softened
5 1/2 cups bread flour (AP flour will also work, but bread flour is better)
1 Tbsp yeast
- Place ingredients into the bread machine in the order they are listed above, making a well in the flour for the yeast.
- Select your machine's dough cycle
- After dough is ready, punch down and knead a few times. Divide dough in half and place 1/2 in a bread pan. If you do not have a bread pan, you may simply shape and bake on a baking sheet.
- Spray a sheet of plastic wrap with cooking spray or olive oil and cover loosely. Allow dough to rise for at least 45 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 30 minutes, or until well browned.
