Elaine's Most Excellent Sandwich Bread

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 0 mins

This recipe is from another Feingold mom (www.feingold.org) and is my absolute fave for regular bread. I use for sandwiches, french toast, buns, anything I need a good-bodied bread for. It's heaven on earth when freshly baked and spread with real butter! This bread has enough body to slice for sandwiches. Sometimes I substitute 3 T molasses for the sugar or add 1 T Italian seasoning. You can also put it on the dough cycle and shape into hamburger buns, hot dog buns or hoagie rolls.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 14 cup sugar (I only use 2 T for grown-up bread and the full 1/4 c for my kiddos)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 12 teaspoons yeast (1 pkg)
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Place in machine in the order your machine asks for and cook on the regular cycle.

This is a great bread. I used 2 tablespoon of sugar since you said 2 T for grown-up bread. I think it would have been too sweet with 1/4 cup sugar. The taste and texture are great. Thanks cook from scratch :) Made for PAC Spring 2010
