Easy Sandwich Bread Recipe
My husband suggested I try making sandwich bread. He loves bread and loves going to his moms in Philadelphia and going to the bakeries and picking out bread so I thought I would give it a try.
I went through several different recipes and then some tweaking to come up with what my family liked. Some recipes I found were to dense, while others were soft and fluffy. The end result is a great bread you can make a few times a week.
I love that this only takes a few minutes of actual work, putting the timer on and waking up to fresh butter bread, then slicing it up for sandwiches for the lunch box.

It’s super easy to use and has a ton of settings. I love the quick bread setting that reduces your baking time in half. The timer is a great feature too. I can get everything ready and have hot bread for breakfat the next morning.
Ingredients for basic bread recipe
