Welcome to Fast2eat! If you’re looking for easy-to-prepare, nutritious, delicious, and Fast-2-eat recipes, then you’re in the right place.

Served with butter, cream cheese or jam, as the basis for a ham and cheese sandwich, or just eaten plain, this antique white bread recipe has a soft, airy inside and a beautiful golden-brown crust. It is perfect for making toasts sandwiches and is used for French toast.

This recipe for homemade white bread has been around for quite a while. White bread is one of the most popular bread recipes to prepare at home because it is so easy to make with a bread machine. There’s something about a vintage recipe that prompts you to try it. It makes me wonder if my mom or grandma ever tried this recipe.

It is a beginner recipe. It is very easy to make and uses only a few ingredients. Given its simplicity, white bread is an excellent “starter” bread until you gain more experience with bread machines and move on to more advanced recipes. This antique white bread recipe is the starting point for our Multigrain, Rye, and more elaborated bread recipes. Please visit the Fast2eat Bread Machine Recipes section for more great recipes.

To add some extra flavour to your bread, you can easily add your family’s favourite herbs or seasonings (i.e. Italian seasoning herbs, oregano, basil, rosemary, onion powder or garlic flakes).

While white bread is fluffy & delicious, much of its bran fibre was removed during the milling process. If you want more fibre in your family’s diet, you should consider some of our other bread machine recipes and make your own homemade whole wheat bread, multigrain bread or oatmeal bread. Nevertheless, many people like to use white bread recipes to make sandwich bread and/or toast.

Antique white bread is an easy, tender sandwich loaf that slices easily without crumbling. It is so soft, plain, and simple.
Nothing beats the traditional goodness of homemade baked bread. Your family will love the taste of this delicious white bread. And you will love how easy it is to make! It freezes well too.
Servings: 20 slices

Ingredients

  • 1 1/8 cup Water - 75°– 90°F or 24°– 32°C - 1/8 cup = 2 tbsp
  • 3 tbsp Oil - or Olive oil
  • 3 cups Bread flour
  • 3 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp Active dry yeast

Instacart is available in the US only at the moment.

Instructions

  • Attach the kneading blade in the bread pan.
  • Place ingredients into the bread pan following the recipe order (or following the order and method specified in the manual of your Bread Maker – mine is: FIRST, liquid ingredients; SECOND, dry ingredients; LAST, yeast). Note: With a finger or a knife, make a small indentation in the middle of the flour. Add yeast to indentation, making sure it does not come into contact with the liquid ingredients.
  • Carefully insert bread pan into Bread Maker and gently close the lid.
  • Select the “Basic/White” bread setting. If available, choose crust colour (I usually set Medium, but if you prefer set Light or Dark) and loaf size (1.5 LB) and Press the Start button. With this bread, it is safe to use the timer function.
  • It will mix and bake the bread. When the baking cycle is complete, press the stop button and unplug the breadmaker.
  • Open the lid and while using Oven Mitt, firmly grasp the bread pan handle and gently pull the pan straight up and out of the machine. CAUTION: The Bread Maker and pan may be very hot! Always handle with care.
  • Use non-stick Spatula to gently loosen the sides of the bread from the pan.
  • Turn bread pan upside down onto a Wire Cooling Rack or clean cooking surface and gently shake until bread falls out onto rack.
  • Cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing.
  • To make perfect slices every time use a Bread Slicer with an Electric Knife.

Notes

It’s always a good idea to open the bread machine’s lid during the second kneading cycle (after about 10 minutes) and check the consistency of the dough ball.
The dough is “just right” when it is a smooth round ball in appearance, soft to the touch, leaves a slight residue on your finger, and the bottom of the bread pan is clean of dough residue.
  • If it’s too dry, add lukewarm liquid a teaspoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If it looks too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If there is flour on the sides of the pan, use a Silicone Spatula to wipe the flour from the pan.
Important: This can be done during the knead cycle only. DO NOT remove the pan. KEEP it locked in the machine. Do NOT turn off the bread maker to adjust the dough.

Weather can affect your ingredients
If you live in a moist climate, chances are you’ll need at least the recommended amount of flour, maybe even 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup more. Bread dough should be sticky but still manageable, especially after the first rise. While you’re kneading, the dough should come together and pull away from the sides of the bowl, leaving the bowl mostly clean. I usually aim to have the very bottom of the dough still attached to the bowl. Try not to add too much flour because your bread will be denser. When you pick the dough up, some will stick to your fingers. After the first rise, it will be easier to handle!

You may also make this bread without the aid of a bread machine or make the dough in a bread machine and bake it in the oven.
Make the dough using your usual method (by hand, electric mixer or bread machine); allow it to rise until puffy, then shape it into a log, and place it in a lightly greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch (21.5 x 11.5 cm) bread pan. Allow the loaf to rise, covered, until it's crowned about 1 inch over the rim of the pan. If you want, brush the risen loaf with the beaten egg white, and sprinkle it with seeds. Bake it in a preheated 350°F/175°C oven for 35 minutes, or until its interior temperature registers 190°F/88°C on an instant-read thermometer. Remove the bread from the oven, remove it from the pan, and cool it on a wire rack.

How can you tell if the bread is fully baked?
I like to use a food thermometer. Mine is digital, so it’s straightforward to use. Fully cooked bread will be 190-200°F/88-93°C. Bread recipes that include milk will need to cook until 200°F/93°C, but without you can take it out once it reaches 190°F/88°C. The top will be golden brown.
