A simple white bread for the bread machine. It makes glorious toast and great sandwiches. It's one of the few homemade breads my Wonderbread-addicted husband will eat. You can use half milk and half water, or even all water if you don't have the milk. This bread is best baked on the rapid cycle.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 2 teaspoons yeast


  1. Add all ingredients, in order, to bread machine.
  2. Bake on quick (58 minute) cycle.

We've used this recipe 20+ times, easily. It works very well, but we did change the setting to sandwich bread rather than rapid as it was a bit underdone. Otherwise we use it just as it is. It works well for pizza and calzones too!!

Never thought I would be looking for a "wonder bread" recipe and I really wasn't but had to give this a try. Sometimes you miss that cheap, crappy white bread from the store. Well, this isn't that but it is fluffy, white, and really good. Used my bread maker just as the recipe is. Glad I tried it and it is a keeper for sure. Thanks !
