Here’s a great recipe for an easy sandwich bread for your bread machine. Just add your ingredients in and you’ll have fresh homemade bread in a few hours.
I’ve been making my own sandwich bread for a few years now. I’ve had a bread maker for about 10 years, but never used it much. I decided to break it out to see what all I could make.
Which Bread Maker to Buy
Here’s the bread maker that I have. I actually used my first one out and when I went to buy a second one, I bought the same exact one, I love it so much!
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.
Easy Sandwich Bread Machine Recipe
My husband suggested I try making sandwich bread. He loves bread and he 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.
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.
Ingredients for basic bread recipe
- All purpose flour- You can use bread flour too. This recipe has NOT been tested using whole wheat flour. If you try it don’t use 100% wheat flour, do a mix of white and wheat.
- Olive oil
How to make bread machine bread
Put the ingredients in the bread maker in the order that they are listed (except yeast).
Close lid and add yeast to dispenser.
Set bread maker to bake according to your bread maker instructions. Carefully take your loaf out when it’s done. It will be hot!
You can use different kids of yeast, but I like bread machine yeast. I also use the little packets. You can use active dry yeast too. I never use instant yeast so I can’t recommend it.
Don’t forget to add the yeast to your yeast dispenser! I have done this several times!
Yes, you can cook this on the quick bake setting or the regular setting.

I have never made bread that requires yeast! I don't know why - something scares me that I'll mess it up! Maybe if I had a bread maker, I wouldn't be so afraid - because this looks delish!

I love making homemade bread. I don't have a bread maker, I always just do it by hand. I think it's relaxing :)

I haven't pulled out my bread maker in awhile since my son likes to help me knead the bread. But I might have to dust it off and give this a try.
Thanks for sharing on Creative K Kids Tasty Tuesdays. Hope to see you back next week.
