This recipe is for a traditional white bread that you bake in the bread machine across the entire cycle. It makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf. It’s actually better than the bread you buy at the store and is both light and airy with a soft texture.

One of the key things to watch is how well your batter is coming together. This can vary by bread machine, but if you’re batter appears to be too dry add a tablespoons of water, If it’s too wet add a tablespoon of flour. Don’t’ overdo it. Wait for the result you want is a solid and consistent dough ball that will then rise in the machine and give you a great loaf of white bread.

INGREDIENTS:
 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
 3 tablespoons white sugar
 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
 3 cups bread flour
 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
DIRECTIONS:
1

Add the ingredients to the bread pan in the order indicated and choose the basic bread or white bread setting; 1.5 pound loaf and medium crust.

2

Let cool for 10 minutes and then slice and serve.

    I tried this recipe yesterday and it turned out great. This was my 4th attempt in making bread and the first one that was not dense and it was tasty. The only thing I did different was that I used 1 tablespoon sugar instead of 3. This will be my go to recipe for basic white bread. Thank you.

    It sounds like your yeast deteriorated. Do you keep it in your fridge ? I always activate my yeast in warm water first. I never use the timer !

    I need help. I bought a West end bread maker that has as long pan with double paddles for needing the dough. Can I make a 1.5 pound loaf of bread the same as I would in the tall pan with the one beater? The instructions and menu were taken out of the box.

    What would cause my bread to not rise properly? The first few loaves I made were as close to perfect as they could get. The last two didnt even make it to the top of the pan. What could cause that?

    I bought a bread machine, my bread was still touch and go, i tried this recipe but took dough out after rising, placed it in small balls on baking tray and covered with towel, the balls doubled in size, i baked at 200c for 15mins and my baps are perfect,

    CAN YOU USE THIS RECIPE AND USE THE DOUGH CYCLE ONLY?

      Hi Trudie,

      Yes, After the dough cycle and the first rise, remove the dough to a buttered, metal bread pan and let rise again for 45 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes and then slice and serve.
