  • 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.

  • 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!
