There are so many reasons white bread in the store is bad for you. It’s a food to avoid when living healthy, dieting, or trying to correct behavior problems in kids. Bleached flour, gluten, preservatives….all found in white bread in stores and all very bad for you (and your kids!).

I have a bread machine that I absolutely can not live without. I make bread on a regular basis and it usually doesn’t last very long. But up until now I wasn’t able to replace our sandwich bread. After some trial and error, I finally found the best white bread recipe. We may never buy bread in the stores again!

There is actually two steps to this recipe. It will only come out perfect if you bake it in the oven. The bread machine is fantastic for a lot of recipes, but when you need the bread for sandwiches you’ll need to bake it in your oven.

So here we go……the best white bread recipe!

Classic White Bread

3/4 cup water
2 cups flour (unbleached)
1 tablespoon nonfat dried milk
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter (original recipe was applesauce)
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast

Put ingredients in bread machine on dough cycle. Grease bread pan with butter, and preheat oven to 325*. Bake for 25 mins. Bread will not be brown unless you coat top with butter. This step is optional.

The original recipe was taken from Great Bread Machine Recipes, which includes over 90 different recipes for your bread machine. We use this ebook on a very regular basis!
