I’ve finally found a way to make Fluffy White Bread Machine Sandwich Bread, and spoiler alert – I only use my Zojirushi Bread Machine to mix and raise the dough. It does a good job of baking it and it does so in a normal, horizontal loaf, but not as good as a proper oven bake.

So I’ve ended up with one of those fancy (affiliate link ahead!) Zojirushi bread machines. In the past I’ve had a couple of other models and never really cared for the bread that they turned out. This one, however is infinitely better but- I still prefer to do the baking right in the oven. There’s just no way any bread machine can match oven baked due to the the process is uses. But this one does come close.

I found a version of this recipe at geniuskitchen and on its own is very good. However, I’ve tossed out the oil for melted butter, started with tangzhong, and went for the steam oven instead of the bread machine. If you want to just use the bread machine end-to-end you can do that too and won’t likely be disappointed.

And once again, being inspired by the Great British Bake Off and discovering Kim-Joy’s use of the Tangzhong method I’ve started employing it in most of my breads.

You can braid this bread, twist it, roll it, make onion bread, cinnamon raisin bread whatever you want, it’ll turn out great! In fact when making these loaves I made one with some leftover bits from the Fluffy Cinnamon Roll recipe.

  • Bread Machine


  • 1 Cup water warm
  • 2 Tbsp sugar white
  • 2.25 tsp yeast
  • 3 Cups bread flour
  • 1/4 Cup butter melted
  • 1 tsp salt


  • 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


  • 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.


  • Into your bread machine goes (in order) tangzhong starter, flour, butter, salt


  • set bread machine to "dough" and walk away


  • Once dough cycle is complete, remove dough onto a floured surface, divide in half and punch down
  • Place dough into two loaf pans
  • While the dough is rising a second time, preheat oven to 350
  • 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
  • Once oven is ready place your loaf pans into the oven and bake for 30 minutes
  • Voila!
  • This bread should keep well in a zip-top bag for about a week while remaining soft and ready to eat


  • I've used this dough for a modified version of my Garlic Onion Bread, Cinnamon Raisin Bread, on and on... it's very useful!

    • Thanks for the message!

      I guess that could be important information, huh? I've updated the recipe as it should state 1/4 *CUP* of melted butter.

      Thanks again and keep on baking!
