Sandwich Bread

I am looking for a recipe for bread that is not "floppy".  The bread I have made with my new Sojirushi is wonderful but would not be stiff enough to hold up a sandwich.  I am in my 60's and have had a sandwich every day since I was 6 years old.  Thank you in advance for your suggestion.

I can't tell you a good recipe (it depends on your own taste buds!), but you should check out the King Arthur Flour website, they've got a lot of delicious recipes, and I'm sure you'll be able to find one that suit you.

Good luck :)

Here is a basic recipe I got with my Dak Turbo lV Bread Machine

2 1/4 cups bread flour (about 304 gms.)

I cup Warm water ( 85 to 120 degrees.) 

1 talbespoon butter

1 spoon white vinegar, for freshness.

1 tsp salt

1 Tlb. Sugar

1 packet of instant yeast. ( 7 gms. or 2 1/4 tsp )

1 tlb. Powdered Milk


Put yeast in pan first 

add dry ingredients next

Warm water last.

I bake on the french setting to allow for better flavor with longer rise times.


I make this every other day for fresh sandwich bread. Makes a small one pound loaf.

If you want there is a recipe for a larger loaf.

Mine is baking now.


I have been using same recipe and adapting it to other recipes, rasin, yogurt, etc.






I enjoy cooking with wine. On occasion I even include it in the recipe.
