White Bread

Amazing simple home made delicious white bread. So a disclaimer here I have lots and lots of bread recipes especially white bread so please forgive me if I go crazy posting one every other day lol :) No seriously!!!

I make this weekly and have a nice soft tasty bread for the rest of the week. You can also use wheat or add raisins, brown sugar and cinnamon to make a delicious cinnamon raisin bread. I would also suggest halving the recipe for the first time.

All you need.

Add sugar, warm water and then yeast.

Yeast proof.

Adding salt.

Add Oil.

Mix well.

Add Flour in parts. I added about 2 cups at a time.

Second batch.

Last batch.

Mix till it balls up on the hook.

Let the dough rise in a warm spot covered with a damp towel for about 1 hour. Should look like this when done.

Beat dough down and knead well then cut in 2 and place in 2 9 or 10 inch pans. Let sit to rise some more about 30 minutes. The picture shows the dough ready to be tossed in the oven after rising about 35 – 40 minutes.

You can use an egg wash for brushing on top of the bread. An egg and a little milk.

Should bake and be done in 30 minutes. Excellent and delicious!

White bread ~ Ingredients

Makes 2 9 inch loaves ~ Prep Time: 2 hours, Cook time : 30 minutes

  • 2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast (a little more than 2 packets)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 6 cups bread flour preferred but I have made with all purpose and it came out fine.

Prep Instructions ~

  • In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, and then stir in yeast.
  • Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam and has risen above the level of the water.
  • Mix salt and oil into the yeast.
  • Mix in flour one cup at a time.
  • Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth.
  • Place in a well oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat.
  • Cover with a damp cloth.
  • Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half.
  • Shape into loaves, and place into two well oiled 9×5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans.
  • Bake  at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
  • Let cool on a rack.
  • Enjoy!

Very easy but it does take time so its a weekend bread. Or if you are stay at home an anytime bread :) Enjoy and let me know your thoughts.

Love TZ xoxo
