Easy Sandwich Bread

  • 1 1/2 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 3 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 2 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  1. Butter a 10 x 20-cm (4 x 8-inch) loaf pan. In a bowl, combine the water and sugar. Set aside. In another bowl, combine the flour, yeast and salt. Add the sugar mixture. Stir until a soft ball forms, adding more flour if necessary.
  2. On a floured surface, knead the dough until smooth, about 10 minutes. Shape it into a cylinder and place it in the loaf pan. Let rise in a warm, humid place until double in volume and the top is higher than the lip of the pan, about 1 hour. [You can fill a jug with boiling water and place it in the microwave along with the loaf tin.. you don't turn on the microwave!.. just a good way to get it to rise.]
  3. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180C (350F).
  4. Bake until golden brown, about 1 hour. Unmold and let cool on a rack.
  5. Note: You can also make bread dough in a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook.
