I used to think of homemade bread as a treat, but now almost all of the bread I eat is homemade. I cannot eat the sliced small loaf bread that sells in the grocery store anymore. It tastes dead! Homemade bread is great for sandwiches as well as a side. Nobody said you had to use the small sliced loaf that you buy for $3 at the grocery store. If you want a gourmet sandwich then use homemade bread and you will be halfway there.
I do have some tips for making your own homemade bread, but for now I am going to start with my favorite recipes. Stay tuned for a post on homemade bread tips!
Basic White Bread (for a Bread Machine)
- 1 cup warm water
- 1/3 Cup sugar
- 2 1/4 tsp yeast
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 2 Tbs oil
- 3 cups flour
Put the warm water and oil in your bread machine pan. Then put in the flour, sugar, and salt. Create a small well in the top of the dry ingredients and add the yeast. Set your bread machine to the crust settings you like and turn it on.
3 hours later you will have a great basic white bread that is good for sandwiches or butter and jam.
