White bread for bread machine – 2lb loaf

Print Friendly

After trying many different iterations, and many loaves of bread, this by far is the best recipe yet.  My bread machine makes a 2 lb loaf and this turns out beautiful.  Tasty right out of the machine hot with butter or cooled and sliced and used for sandwiches.  This one is a winner!


  • 1 Cup Warm water (110 Fahrenheit)
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt (I use Himalayan pink salt)
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil (I prefer canola)
  • 3 Cups of Bread Flour (if you don’t have bread flour use all purpose flour, the bread just wont be as high, you could add a little more yeast to compensate)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast

Using the directions for YOUR bread machine, place the ingredients in the pan and set the machine for a 2 pound loaf and to the desired color.  In a matter of hours you will have a tasty loaf of bread to serve with dinner or for your kids lunches.
