This simple bread machine white bread recipe comes through with a pleasant, chewy texture. It's delicious as toast for breakfast, or use it to make great sandwiches, grilled or not. This white bread loaf doesn't have many air holes or bubbles, but the flavor and texture are wonderful.

You can make this bread on a rapid, or quick cycle, but it could also be made on the regular cycle with a little less yeast (about 2 teaspoons).


  • 1 1/2 cups water (lukewarm)
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast (rapid or instant)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • When your bread machine has been kneading for a few minutes, check the dough. If it seems too stiff, add a little bit of water and continue checking until it seems soft enough. If too wet, add more flour in small amounts until it seems to be soft yet not sticky.
