3/4 cup water, warm (100-110F)
1/2 cup milk
2 1/4 teaspoon yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
I got this recipe from Mennonite Farmhouse on YouTube. She did a video on how to make Sandwich Bread and I followed the recipe she used. This bread is perfect and drool-worthy. Check out her channel.
Add water to mixer bowl.
Mix in sugar.
Then, sprinkle yeast over that.
With a dough hook, turn mixer on 1.
Add in milk while it is still mixing.
Add in butter and salt.
I turned mixer on 2 here. Don’t go over 2.
Let it mix.
After it is mixed well, the dough should not stick to the bowl.
If the dough is sticking to the bowl mix in 1 tablespoon of flour at a time until it not longer sticks.
Once it no longer sticks, then let it mix for 7-8 minutes to knead the dough.
Remove from the mixer. Form into a ball.
Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil into bowl.
Place the ball of dough in the bowl. Cover it completely with olive oil.
Cover the bowl with a warm damp towel or plastic wrap.
Place in a warm place for 1 – 2 hours to rise. I placed it in the oven with the light on for extra heat.
Remove the towel and punch the dough down.
Then shape the dough to match the width of your pan. Spread it out into a rectangle.
Then roll it up like a cinnamon roll. Tuck the ends in and pinch the seam closed.
Roll the seam on top of itself to seal.
Place in loaf pan and cover once again. Let it rise for 30 minutes.
After 15 minutes or rise time, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
After 30 minutes, remove the towel and place in the oven.
Bake for 30 – 35 minutes or until it is golden brown.
Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a cooling rack.
Then completely cool.
Slice and enjoy!
