Fair Warning

If you’re reading this right now, we’re in the middle of Coronavirus lockdowns and many stores are out of bread. If you’re like me, you probably need more! So here it is, I’m sharing my super-secret white bread recipe. Before you make it, I have to warn you. You should probably make a couple batches because this bread is so good that no one can stop eating it- lol. Seriously though, you’ve been warned, it’s really hard to put down.

And even though we’re in the middle of boredom-central, I’ll spare you the long boring story of how the recipe was created, because IDK why those even belong on a recipe. Seriously, we just want to know how to make the dang thing. Lol. 

Note: This recipe works fantastic for both standard baking and bread machines.

Printable Recipe


1 Cup Milk

3 1/4 Cup Flour

1/3 Cup + 1.5 TBS Water

3 TBS Softened Butter

3 1/2 TBS Sugar

1 1/2 TSP Salt

2 1/2 TSP Instant Yeast


Preheat oven to 350 Degrees. In a large mixing bowl, add milk, flour, softened butter, sugar, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix lukewarm water and yeast until yeast begins to foam. Add yeast water mixture to remaining ingredients and knead for 5-10 minutes. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise one hour or until the dough doubles in size. Once doubled, punch down and either form into rolls, or place into a loaf pan and allow to rise again for one hour or until doubles in size. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Note: For Bread machines, follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

Additional Notes

This white bread recipe works great for both rolls and sandwich bread. This recipe works fantastically inside bread machines as well as standard oven baking. A mixer with a dough hook is recommended for kneading, and full knead time of ten minutes produces the best gluten structure. This bread recipe is very beginner friendly.
