This recipe of the White Bread Machine Bread is a family recipe we’ve been using for almost two decades. It’s so simple, few common ingredients and the bread is incredible. I remember our guests would always compliment at how delicious our bread is and asking how we make it. If you don’t have a bread machine, I would highly suggest buying one. I would recommend a Panasonic Bread Maker; I bought mine 4 years ago and I use it on an everyday basis to make bread and any dough in bread category; you don’t have to knead it and this bread maker actually rises the bread; it does its magic for you. All you have to do is take out the dough, form the shapes of buns or whatever recipe you’re working on and bake.

Use all-purpose flour. At the moment I’m using Bob’s Red Mill brand all-purpose flour and this is perfect for this recipe. If you run into this situation…when the bread machine starts mixing and you see that the dough is kind of thick and hard, add a bit water to smooth it out. For perfect bread, it should rise a bit higher than the basket in bread machine once it’s baked.

Bread Ingredients:

  • All-purpose flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill brand)
  • Fine salt
  • Grapeseed oil (vegetable okay too)
  • Cold water
  • Instant dry yeast

How to Make White Bread in Bread Machine:

1. Don’t plug in your bread machine just yet. Put 4.5 cups all-purpose flour into the bread machine basket. Then continue adding the rest ingredients: 1 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon oil and lastly 1 3/4 cups (410 ml) cold water. Put 1 teaspoon instant yeast into yeast hole. (If your bread machine doesn’t have a separate hole for yeast then just add into the basket with the rest of ingredients). Plug the bread machine in, set to XL (in size), Basic bread and Medium (in color) – this would take 4 hours.

2. When your bread is done, leave it in for 10-15 minutes so that when you take it out, the little butterfly at the bottom of the basket comes off by itself when you flip the bread out. Wrap bread in food wrap and cover with a towel until it cools so that it stays soft. You can slice into pieces and put into Ziploc to refrigerate and enjoy for up to a week. Enjoy!!

    Hi Olga, if I may ask. Is there a certain machine bread machine that you would recommend most or maybe opposite, one you would not recommend.? We are a big family, so I would mostly always be making the biggest loaf available. I looked through a few different machines, and most give option of 2lb loaf as the biggest even though the machines themselves are different in size like the cuisinart compact still claims to make a full size 2lb loaf but I have seen a review somewhere with a picture where the dough was running over the top after rising and comment said it is Not for 2lb loaf, even though it does claim it, but maybe it was just that persons recipe? Or would a bigger machine in size actually come out with a bigger loaf because of the extra room in general? Not sure if I’m making sense right now.? I’ve even tried to check out some reviews on YouTube to visually see the loaf but they all se to make the 1.5 or 1lb. If you would have any suggestions on it, I would really appreciate it. Thanks, Dina

      Hi Dina, I had been using the Panasonic brand (the one I have linked few times within the post) for over 7 years. All my sisters and mom have the exact same one and it’s the one we use daily. Mom also has Breadman brand that she uses to make dough, but she didn’t like it as much for bread baking. She also had some Oster brand before Panasonic and she didn’t like how it performed. She said it was more burning bread than making sure it’s baked equally in and out. Also, bread coming out of the basket usually due to too much dough – might consider a smaller portion. This bread recipe is perfect for this sized basket and we never have it touching the lid. Hope this helps!
