Country White Bread Recipe

There’s white bread and then there’s country white bread. So, what’s the difference? Country white bread is a white bread variation that is slightly sweeter with a lighter texture. This is due to the sugar volume and the addition of an egg.

It’s also a good recipe for dinner rolls which you can shape and finish in the oven. It’s wonderful when toasted and makes great French toast as well.

Add all the ingredients to the bread maker. Select the basic bread setting 1.5 pound loaf and medium crust.

If you’re going to use this recipe for dinner rolls select the dough cycle setting.

Once the dough cycle is complete, melt a couple of tablespoons of butter in your hands and shape the dough into 16 uniformly sized balls.

Cover and let rise for 30 to 40 minutes. Bake in a 350° oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown and serve.

White loaf - Breadmaker recipe

Smell the yeast first, it should smell warm and yeasty. If it smells stale and musty, throw it out and start again with fresh yeast.

Bread won't rise [solved]

We've recently had a series of failures when making bread with our Panasonic breadmaker - the bread fails to rise and comes out like a house brick.

After reading this article, It seems highly likely that the cause is the yeast. As many people mentioned, the yeast seems to be the cause of this problem, even if it's within the sell-by date. A couple of extra clues: The failing yeast had a rather nasty smell, nothing like the pleasant yeasty smell. Also the bread tasted a little bit sweet, which it would if the yeast was not able to digest the sugar.

Another useful suggestion is to store the yeast in your fridge as it is a 'live' ingredient and it can be 'killed'.

Changing the yeast solved the problem. I may go back to sachet-packed yeast. We make fresh pizzas and fresh pittas at least once a week yet it seems a can of Allinson's yeast goes off before we can use it all up.

Recipe review

Pretty good, and easy to make

4 /5 The standard breadmaker recipes are good but if you have the Panasonic breadmaker and the option of the 'French Bake', that is far better, but takes about 6.5 hours! Jerry, aka Chef (talk)

After you make a loaf of this Simple White Bread, you will make sure you have enough ingredients to at least double the recipe next time. And, it’s easy enough that your kids could help with the measuring and kneading of the dough. The only hard part about this recipe is the waiting to bake the loaf of bread. You do need to let the dough rest in the refrigerator overnight before baking it.

To prepare the dough, begin by adding the sugar and yeast to a cup of warm water and set it aside. Next, in a medium bowl (or a large bowl if doubling or tripling the recipe), mix together the flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture and stir everything together.

Get a work surface ready by sprinkling a couple of tablespoons of flour on it. Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic. Then, place the kneaded dough into a large plastic zip bag that has been drizzled with olive oil. Make sure you get all the dough covered in the oil. Seal the plastic bag and store it in the refrigerator overnight.

Tips: Basic White Bread Recipe for Bread Machines

This basic white bread uses bread flour, which has more gluten than regular all-purpose flour. It helps to give the bread a better texture as it rises and bakes. In a pinch, you can use all-purpose flour. The bread just won’t be as tender. If you would like to sneak in some whole grains, you can swap 1 cup of the flour with whole wheat flour or enjoy this recipe. Use ivory wheat flour if you don’t want the color to be affected too much. If you opt to use a higher ratio of wheat flour, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of gluten.

Bread machine recipes can be tricky at higher altitude. As a general rule, I reduce the yeast to 1 1/2 teaspoons above 4,000 feet when making a bread machine loaf.

Basic White Bread

Basic Bread is made of bread flour, sugar, dry milk, salt, butter and yeast. Bread flour is well-suited for use in yeast breads since it has a higher gluten and protein content than all purpose flour. Dry yeast (simply dried granules of yeast) changes food (especially sugar) into carbon dioxide bubbles. The bubbles get trapped in the gluten, which together form fluffy bread.

FAQs: Bread Machine Sandwich Bread

Can I use all milk?

Yes. If you don’t have half and half in the house, replace the amount called for with an equal amount of milk.

Can I use water?

You can but the loaf won’t be as soft or tasty.

Can I use oil instead of butter?

Yes. Bread made with oil lacks the buttery flavor that I find delightful but oil works.

I don’t have yeast. Can I use a combination of baking powder and lemon juice?

No. Sorry. This bread requires yeast.
