Classic Oven White Sandwich Bread Recipe

I have to say of all the breads that I have made this has to be one of the easiest. I know I say that every time but it seems that making my own bread is rather simple. Making my own bread is just another way I am living that healthy lifestyle that I want for myself and my family.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/3 to 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water*
  • 1 heaping tablespoon honey
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons soft butter
  • 4 cups  All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/3 cup Baker’s Special Dry Milk or 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk granules

Literally throw all of your ingredients in the order listed above inside of your stand mixer with the hook attachment and mix.

Place dough in bowl and allow to rise for 60 minutes.

After that 60 minutes you’re going to deflate the dough and put it into your loaf pan. Allow to rise another 60 minutes.

Bake bread at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes tent the bread with aluminum foil and cook for another 20 minutes.

Classic Oven White Sandwich Bread Recipe
Ingredients
  • 1 1/3 to 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water*
  • 1 heaping tablespoon honey
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons soft butter
  • 4 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/3 cup Baker’s Special Dry Milk or 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk granules
  • *Use the lesser amount in summer or humid climates; the greater amount in winter or drier climates.
Instructions
  1. ) Mix all of the ingredients in the order listed, and mix and knead — by hand, or using a stand mixer — to make a smooth dough. It won’t be particularly soft nor stiff; it should be smooth and feel bouncy and elastic under your hands.
  2. ) Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, or large (8-cup) measuring cup. Cover it, and let it rise for 60 to 90 minutes, till it’s become quite puffy, though not necessarily doubled in size.
  3. ) Gently deflate the dough, and shape it into a fat 9″ log. Place it in a lightly greased 9″ x 5″ loaf pan.
  4. ) Cover the pan, and let the dough rise for 60 to 90 minutes, till it’s crowned 1″ to 1 1/2″ over the rim of the pan. Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  5. ) Bake the bread for 20 minutes. Tent it lightly with aluminum foil, and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, till it’s golden brown. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center will read 195°F to 200°F.
  6. ) Remove the bread from the oven, and turn it out onto a rack to cool. When completely cool, wrap in plastic, and store at room temperature.
