    Default The BEST homemade sandwich you'll ever make!

    I bet you will *NEVER* buy another loaf of bread from the store after trying this light & soft & fluffy bread recipe AND it also stay's fresh for more than a week in a zip-loc bag...


    Here you go..ENJOY!

    1 1/2 cups mik, water or whey
    2 tbsp butter
    1 1/2 tsp salt
    1 1/2 tsp yeast
    2 tbsp honey
    2 tbsp molasses
    3 3/4 cups flour. (can use whole wheat)

    Mix this in your bread machine on the dough cycle.

    Once the dough is ready, divide into two loaves and put in greased loaf pans. Let rise for 50-60 minutes.

    Bake at 400 F for 15 minutes, till top is a nice golden brown colour.

    Remove and let sit for 15 mintues and then remove from loaf pan to cool on wire rack.

    Wait at least an hour before slicing it. and use a electric knife if you have one.

    Well its at 400 degrees also and most breads bake at 350 degrees. The molasses may make the diff. Its darker so it can take a higher temp.?

    Yes you would have to knead the dough until smooth or use a stand mixer with dough hook, if you do not have a bread machine.

    Very good bread. Too sweet for sandwich bread for me though. But I'll definitely make it again, and I will try it with a sandwich and see how I like it. I may try it with a tablespoon less molasses in it and see how it turns out.

    I baked it in the bread machine on the lowest crust setting because I am innately lazy and didn't see why not. The crust was a tad crusty so I might try baking it a little less next time. Or maybe not, because it wasn't bad. The crumb is very fine, soft, and spongy. Perfect!

    I'm wondering how it would be made with rye flour and caraway seeds, so might give that a try sometime too.

    Kinda nice this does not need bread flour.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe! I'll be copying it into the keeper file.

    I'm glad that you tried this recipe... LOL...I'm totally opposite in the sweetness area as I think it's not sweet enough imho but very tasty....My breadmachine bread recipe that I use regularly has 4-tablespoon's of sugar in it..

    I absolutely believe this bread is best baked in the oven..I really can't believe how soft & fluffy this bread is..I know why it states to use a electic knife to cut it as it's so soft it actually feel's like a big bath sponge when you go to hold the bread to cut it using a bread knife..although it will bounce back into shape when you let go of it..

    Pardon my ignorance, but I don't have a bread machine...YET. Do all bread machines do the kneading for you, or are some just basic ovens? I guess a better question would be, is there an inexpensive bread machine that is better than others?

    Yes, they all do the kneading. It's just a little paddle in the bottom that spins for a set amount of time. The machine heats to a nice temp for raising the bread while it's being kneaded. Then the motor shuts down and the bread rises. It's kneaded again. Mine has a beeper to tell me when to add stuff like seeds, if desired, during the second kneading. Then it rises the bread again, then bakes it. All you have to do is add the ingredients at the start, select things like the loaf size, crust preference or dough cycle, etc, then when it's done, take it out of the pan.

    I bought my bread machine at a garage sale for $2. It came with two mixes that had a retail price of close to $4 each.

    Some are better than others. I got my first one when they were fairly new on the market and I hated it. No matter what I did, the bread came out like it was wearing armor. Very thick and hard crust. I got rid of that and got the one I have now, which is a Toastmaster. Normally I hate Toastmaster products but I really like this bread machine.

    My mom had a Welbilt and it was horrible, too. I used it once and hated it as well. One thing I REALLY hated about it was the fact the loaf pan had to be in the machine or it had a giant hole in the bottom. I like to carry my loaf pan around the kitchen to the various ingredients, rather than having to drag all the ingredients to the bread pan, so a pan with a huge hole in the bottom doesn't work for me. The machine also clanked and clunked and sounded like it would fly apart at any time whenever it was running. I think the motor was underpowered because it seemed to struggle just making basic bread. I bought Mom a NIB Toastmaster at a church sale for $5, different from mine, and she really likes hers, too.

    Spirit - I, too, do not care for sweet breads. Is there a homemade bread recipe that you know of for the bread machine that does not call for sweeteners of any kind? or minimal at least. I like the texture of store bought "light bread".
