Great, easy homemade white bread for sandwiches, or whatever you might want. Can be adjusted for all types of breads.
Ingredients
  • 1 Cup warm water
  • 2 Tbsp white sugar
  • 2.25 tsp yeast
  • 3 Cups bread flour
  • ¼ melted butter
  • 1 tsp salt
Instructions
  1. Getting your bread machine ready to go (or your mixing bowl, or whatever your chosen method), place warm water (set aside 2 tbps), sugar, and yeast into machine. Give a quick mix to help dissolve. Allow to become frothy and bubbly, about 10 minutes
Tangzhong
  1. fluffy white sandwich bread tangzhong

    Tangzhongin'

    While your yeast is getting warmed up, start the tangzhong by using 3 tbsp of the flour and 2 tbsp of the water into a pot and warm over low heat until you get a nice gooey roux. Should only take a minute or two.
Dough
  1. Into your bread machine goes (in order) tangzhong starter, flour, butter, salt
Mixing
  1. set bread machine to "dough" and walk away
Baking
  1. Once dough cycle is complete, remove dough onto a floured surface, divide in half and punch down
  2. Place dough into two loaf pans
  3. While the dough is rising a second time, preheat oven to 350
  4. Place an oven proof container with about 2 cups of water into the oven. The water will create steam and keep you from getting that tough, hard crust
  5. Once oven is ready place your loaf pans into the oven and bake for 30 minutes
  6. Voila!
  7. This bread should keep well in a zip-top bag for about a week while remaining soft and ready to eat
Variations
  1. I've used this dough for a modified version of my Hawaiian Ube Bread, Garlic Onion Bread, Cinnamon Raising Bread, on and on... it's very useful!
