When the recipe that came with the bread maker didn’t work out how I wanted I played around until I came up with this one that always creates a soft and tasty loaf of bread.


Serves: 12 

  • 1 cup (250ml) warm water
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried yeast
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cups (375g) bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:3hours  ›  Ready in:3hours10min 

  1. Place the water, sugar and yeast in the pan of the bread machine. Let the yeast dissolve and foam for 10 minutes. Add the oil, flour and salt to the yeast. Select Basic or White Bread setting, and press Start.

Altered ingredient amounts. This was the best bread that ever came out of my bread machine yet. On my 2nd loaf, however, I made a few changes: I used 3 Tablespoons sugar and reduced the yeast to 2 teaspoons instead of the 2 1/4 teaspoon measurement that is in the 1 sachet that it calls for. This reduced the rising just enough so that the slices near the top of the loaf weren't as "airy" thus, held up better during slicing. The result was a lovely, soft, very light bread with a flaky crust, perfect for sandwiches! This recipe has become a favourite! - 08 Oct 2008
