First of all, I used bread flour to make this white sandwich bread. Bread flour gives a better result due to its high gluten content.  However, use all-purpose flour if you can’t find bread flour.

How to Knead the dough for white sandwich bread

You should knead it for about 15 minutes by hand.  It is so important because it strengthens the gluten, leading to fluffier bread.  I usually process my dough in a kneading machine for about 7 minutes.

How to Proof the dough for white sandwich bread

After kneading the dough, I leave it to proof for at least 1 hour or, in the fridge overnight.  The process of proofing your dough slowly in the refrigerator intensifies the aroma leading to tastier bread.  So, it is entirely up to you to choose which version you want.

How to make white sandwich bread

  1. First of all, pour the warm water into a mixing bowl. Sprinkle the yeast on top of the water and wait about 5 minutes for the yeast to activate.
  2. Proceed to add salt and butter to the mixing bowl and give it a mix.
  3. Using a wooden spoon, mix everything until the dough comes together.
  4. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead continuously for 12 – 15 minutes. In the beginning, it will be sticky but the more you knead it, the smoother and pliable it will become.
  5. On the other hand, if you are kneading in a stand mixer, use the dough hook attachment on medium speed for about 5 to7 minutes.
  6. After that, place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with cling film. Let it rise in a warm place for about 1 to 2 hours or until it has doubled in size.
  7. Punch the dough and slightly flatten it using your fingers. Proceed to roll it up like you would roll up a mat.  Seal the seams by pinching the dough together.
  8. Place the dough in a greased loaf pan and let it rise again for 60 minutes.
  9. Bake at 220°C for about 25 to 30 minutes. If you notice halfway through the baking process that your bread is browning up too fast, cover the top with aluminum foil and bake to the end.
  10. Allow your white sandwich bread to cool in the baking pan for 10 minutes and then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
  11. Enjoy with some herb-infused butter.

Tips

  • This bread freezes very well.  Wait till your loaf cools down, slice and freeze in a freezable ziplock bag.
  • For a vegan version: substitute butter with coconut oil or olive oil.  Substitute milk with almond or coconut milk.
  • Just a tip; every time you are working on a sticky dough by hand, wear disposable kitchen hand gloves, and you will see how easy it is.
