White Sandwich Bread Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 packet active dry yeast (2¼ teaspoon)
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted (for the top of the bread)

Directions

  1. Mix water and milk together and heat to 105-110 degrees F. Add yeast packet and set aside. 
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the dough hook attachment, combine bread flour, sugar, and salt. Next, add the yeast mixture and softened butter and mix well until the dough comes together. Once a dough ball forms, knead the dough for 3-5 minutes on medium speed.
  3. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover, and let proof for an hour or until it doubles in size.
  4. Once the hour is up, punch down the dough and move it to a lightly oiled countertop. Shape the dough into an 8-to- 9-inch log.
  5. Place the log in a lightly greased loaf pan, cover, and let it rise for 45-60 minutes. Start preheating the oven to 350 degrees F toward the end of the rise. 
  6. Bake the bread for 40-45 minutes. Measure the interior of the loaf with a digital thermometer. The bread is done with it registers between 190-200 degrees F.
  7. Once it's done, remove from the oven and cool on a rack for 5 minutes. Carefully remove bread from loaf pan and brush melted butter over the top. Cool completely before slicing.
