Homemade White Sandwich Bread Loaf

There’s nothing quite like the smell of freshly baked bread wafting through your kitchen. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process of making fluffy, mouthwatering white bread from scratch.

  • 4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups warm water (around 110°F or 43°C)
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons of active dry yeast (one packet)
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil


  1. Activate the Yeast:
  • In a small bowl, combine warm water and sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
  • Sprinkle the yeast over the water and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it’s frothy.
  1. Mix the Dough:
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt.
  • Make a well in the center and pour in the yeast mixture and vegetable oil.
  • Stir until a dough forms.
  1. Knead the Dough:
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Knead the dough for about 8-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. You can use more flour if it’s too sticky.
  1. First Rise:
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for 1-1.5 hours or until it has doubled in size.
  1. Shape and Second Rise:
  • Punch down the dough to release excess air.
  • Shape it into a loaf and place it in a greased 9×5-inch loaf pan.
  • Cover it and let it rise for another 30-45 minutes.
  1. Preheat and Bake:
  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) during the last 15 minutes of the second rise.
  • Bake the bread in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until it’s golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  1. Cool and Enjoy:
  • Remove the bread from the pan and let it cool on a wire rack.
  • Slice and savor your fluffy homemade white bread with your favorite toppings.

Enjoy the pride and satisfaction that comes from baking your own bread, and share the love with family and friends. Homemade bread makes any meal better!
