Our Sandwich Bread

This my go-to loaf of sandwich bread.



480g warm water

5 tsp active yeast

2 tsp sugar

4 tbs olive oil

600g + bread flour

2 tsp salt



Add water, sugar and yeast to mixer bowl and whisk together. Let sit for 15 minutes.

Whisk together flour and salt in a separate bowl.

When yeast is ready, add oil to mixer bowl.

Put on dough hook.

Turn mixer on low (2). Little by little add flour. If needed add additional flour until dough pulls away from bowl. I've had it pull together with no extra flour, and I've used as much as an extra 150g of flour.

Turn to medium (4) and knead for 5-7 minutes.

Oil a covered bowl. Turn out dough and form into ball. Put in oiled bowl, cover, and let raise until doubled in size.

Grease bread pan.

Punch down dough and form into loaf. Place in loaf pan, cover and let raise until it fills pan.

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake bread until golden brown.

Crumb shot. Sorry for the delay. I work an odd schedule.
