This Bread Machine Bread Recipe makes the best white bread loaf that is perfectly fluffy, with a nice crust, and all with only 5 minutes of hands-on work.
Makes one 2 lb white bread loaf.
Add ingredients to the bread pan in the following order water, yeast, flour, salt, sugar, and oil (in this particular order).
Choose the appropriate setting for "White Bread" on your bread machine.
Next chose the preferred darkness of the loaf (light, medium, dark). I recommend choosing a "dark" setting to help the bread to bake through fully.
Lastly chose a 2 lb loaf for the size of the loaf.
Adjust as necessary:
As the dough starts kneading keep an eye on the process for the first 5-10 minutes making sure that the dough has formed into a soft, round ball. If for some reason the dough looks very loose after all flour has been incorporated add a little bit more flour, 2 tablespoons at a time until it forms into a ball.
Note the amount of flour used to form the ball this time and add this adjusted amount the next time you make this bread machine bread recipe.
Once the kneading cycle has ended do not open the lid, otherwise, this will allow the heat to escape.
See notes for best practice when baking Bread Machine bread.
Remove and cool: Once the cycle is complete and the alarm goes off, use mittens to remove the bread pan out of the bread machine. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, then shake the bread out onto a cooling rack to cool completely before slicing.
