Country White Bread

This simple bread machine white bread recipe comes through with a pleasant chewy texture. It's delicious as toast for breakfast or use it for great sandwiches, grilled or not. I was trying to get something similar to a shepherd's bread or peasant bread when I made this loaf. This white bread loaf doesn't have many air holes or bubbles, but the flavor and chewiness are wonderful.
I make this bread on my rapid, or quick cycle, but it could be made on the regular cycle with, a little less yeast - about 2 teaspoons. 

Yield: Makes 1 Loaf


  • 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
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Add all ingredients to your bread machine pan in the order recommended by your bread machine manufacturer. Use the quick or rapid setting and medium crust; push start. Cool on a rack.
Slice and enjoy!

Makes 1 loaf.

Tip: 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.
