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 so a few years ago I decided to break it out to see what all I could make.  Here’s the one I use.  I started out just making some bread that we could eat in the winter with soups. Then I started making some that we could eat for breakfast, such as oatmeal or walnut cinnamon.

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 we found were to dense, while others were to fluffy.


  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons yeast (I use the kind for bread makers.)

I put my ingredients in my bread maker in the order that’s listed, but I know some are different so follow the instructions on your bread maker.  Don’t forget to add the yeast to your yeast dispenser.  You don’t know how many times I’ve forgotten.  You can cook this on the quick bake setting or the regular setting too.

I love putting this on the timer and having fresh butter bread in the mornings when we get up and then I can slice it up for sandwiches for the lunch box.

    Oh how I wish I had the room for a bread maker! Even if it was just for the smell of freshly baked bread… Thanks for sharing Holly!

    I made this and we like it better than the other recipe I’ve been using! Thanks!

    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.

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

  5. 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!
