Best Bread Machine Bread

best bread machine bread 1When I read this recipe on AllRecipes, I was curious. It went against everything my bread machine's manual said to do. And I wanted to try it anyway, what did I have to lose except three cups of bread flour and a little time. Not even that much time, more like ten minutes of active time and three hours of dealing with the house smelling wonderful. Of course C was at the Aggie game, which is a 2 hour drive each way, so the smell wouldn't torture him.  After I tasted this bread, I am unsure that I will ever go back to my bread machine's instructions.  It was perfectly baked. And Miss F has homemade sandwich bread for her lunch all week.
Best Bread Machine Bread

1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 ¼ teaspoons yeast
¼ cup vegetable oil
3 cups bread flour
2 teaspoons salt

Place the water, sugar and yeast in the pan of the bread machine. Let the yeast dissolve and foam for 10 minutes. Add the oil, flour and salt to the yeast. Select the white bread setting and press start.

I want a bread machine! But I hate the smell. I know, I'm crazy!! My mom still uses her bread maker all the time - I just sent her this recipe!

Nothing is better then a fresh loaf of bread out of the oven. Thanks for sharing this post!

Your pictures are looking great girl! Keep it up!

@Lauren Thanks! As long as I have time to take the picture...I feel like I can get a good shot. But I am normally rushing to get dinner on the table...with waiting a hungry husband and toddler.

Great picture! You've sold me on a bread machine. I saw about a billion of them at yard sales this summer. Picking one up in the spring for sure!

I stopped using my bread machine book after I found this on allrecipes, too! It is perfect, every single time.

@Kelsey Thanks so much! I have been shooting in manual mode and I am learning as I go. Miss F has started school three days a week and I have LOTS of free time now.

I am constantly making bread in my bread machine, since my hubby is such a carb-a-holic. This is by far the best basic recipe I've tried. I was able to cut the bread into thin slices without it falling apart and it was so, so yummy. Also, I loved the fact that I didn't have to check and stir during the mix cycle like I frequently have to.

Looks lovely! Can I add dried fruit or chopped nuts to this? Would that affect the lightness of this loaf?

This recipe makes wonderful bread without a ton of ingredients. I use my breadmaker on the dough setting and then make my breads in loafs or even cinnamon rolls. This recipe will make one medium loaf and six cinnamon rolls.

Some time back, I bought a Zojirushi bread machine and this was done only after going through dozens of reviews about it. Yet, I was disappointed by how my bread turns out. I think I know why now. I guess it must be because I've been following the manual too religiously :) I'll give your recipe a shot. Wish me luck :)

The food is absolutely amazing. I hope I could taste and cook that in actual, maybe if I have much time since I am so busy working. Anyways, thanks for sharing your article. God Bless and have a good day. Visit my site too.

Is this suppose to be a 2lb loaf or a 1.5lb loaf? So far, I've been making it in my breadmaker as a 2lb loaf and it's turning out fine. I just wonder if it would turn out different if I set it to 1.5lbs?

Very simple and worked so well. I will always use this recipe for my simple white bread if I'm not using a delayed timer.
