Sourdough is the bomb, but sometimes it’s not what you want for a sandwich or toast. As long as you can find a little packaged yeast, this is an easy sandwich loaf recipe. It’s mostly based on a recipe from Joshua Weissman. I’ll embed his video below!
- 448g warm water
- 150g full-fat non-dairy milk (I used soy)
- 2 packets yeast
- 880g bread flour
- 42g sugar
- 3 teaspoons salt
- 84g or 6 TBS softened butter
- Stir warm water and milk together and heat until 98*F
- Add yeast, a sprinkle of sugar, and stir to dissolve. Cover and set aside 10 minutes to bloom.
- Combine flour, sugar, and salt in stand mixer bowl.
- Using dough hook on low speed, slowly add the bloomed yeast mixture.
- Knead for about 2 minutes beyond when the dough is cohesive.
- Slowly add butter and mix to incorporate.
- Shape into a ball.
- Place dough in oiled bowl, cover, and allow to rise for 1-2 hours or until it doubles (mine went a little beyond!).
- Punch down dough l and divide into two.
- Flatten and roll to form into “logs” and place in greased loaf pans. As you can see below, my dough was rather wet and I didn’t get very tidy rolls, but it did not matter in the end!
- Cover lightly and let sit for about an hour to double again.
- Bake 35-40 minutes. Allow to cool before slicing.
