Perfect sandwich bread

By richardhanney (GoodFood Community)
  • Preparation and cooking time
    • Prep:
  • Easy
  • Makes 1 Loaf
I created this recipe for my bread-maker but if you know how to make bread (i.e raising, knocking back ect...) then you'll be able to easily adapt it.


  • 300ml Water (warm or cold)
  • 7g Yeast
  • 8g Sugar
  • 525g Bread flour (or 175g of whole meal and 350g white, if making brown loaf)
  • 12g Salt (10g for brown)
  • 40g of Soft unsalted butter


  • STEP 1
    Place ingredients in the tin so that the yeast and salt are as far apart as possible. Adding them in the order below is best, I find.
  • STEP 2
    Water, Salt, Sugar, Butter, Flour, Yeast. Do it like this and all should be fine.
  • STEP 3
    Cook on a setting for a 900g loaf, basic white, with a light crust for easy cutting.
