Basic Sandwich Bread

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!

Ingredients

  • 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 

Process

  • 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.
