My Everyday Bread

Tammy Brownlow


I really enjoy baking - nothing smells like fresh homemade bread baking in the oven. I have worked on this recipe for a few years and finally have one that works the way I like it to.

I love the texture and flavor. I combine bread flour and white wheat flour. I also add more sugar than normal - it's not a "sweet" bread like Hawaiian Bread though.

It slices like a dream and is great for sandwiches or any other dish you would need it for.

My treat is the first slice warm, with butter....nothing beats that!

How to Make My Everyday Bread


  1. In a small sauce pan on low heat add milk, butter, sugar, and salt. Stir until butter has melted. Turn off heat.
  2. In your mixer add white wheat flour, 3 cups bread flour, and yeast. Stir until combined.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl heat 1 1/2c water for 20 seconds.
  4. Add milk, and warm water to flour mixture. Mix on low with dough hook until combined.
  5. Add flour 1/4 cup at a time until it pulls away from sides of bowl. Turn off mixer and put dough back into bowl.
  6. Turn back on and mix until dough is smooth and elastic about 5 more minutes.
  7. Add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and toss dough ball until well coated. Cover with plastic wrap and put in a warm place to rise 1 to 1 1/2 hours until doubled.
  8. Punch dough down. Separate in half.
  9. Roll half of dough to 15" x 11" rectangle. I just use a large cutting board and roll it to edges.
  10. Roll short side jelly roll style as shown.
  11. Tuck under ends, and place in greased 9 x 5" loaf pans. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise a second time for 1 hour.
  12. 30 minutes before baking time, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  13. Place loaves in oven for 30 minutes.
  14. Remove from baking pans and place on racks to cool. Enjoy!
