Easy White Bread (Machine Recipe)

This white bread recipe is super easy and never flops. It makes one loaf in your bread machine and it always comes out fluffy and light with a beautiful crust.

Easy White Bread
Makes 1 loaf

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup lukewarm water (about 45C)
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 satchel dry active yeast
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp sunflower oil
  • 3 cups flour (white bread or all purpose)
  • 1 tsp salt
Method:
  1. Pour the water into the pan and add the sugar.
  2. Sprinkle the yeast over the top and allow to foam for 10 minutes.
  3. Add butter, oil, flour and salt.
  4. Set the bread machine to the "Basic White" option, medium loaf size and select the crust you would like. Mine is usually set to "Medium Crust."
  5. Start the machine and go take a nap for about 3 hours (on my machine, at least!)
  6. Wake up, turn the loaf out when just slightly cooled and cut yourself a thick slice of crusty bread. Spread with butter and enjoy with a cup of coffee.
