This is one of my favorite bread machine recipes, though you can also make a shaped loaf if you want. I usually use wheat flour in place of some of the bread flour, about 1/3 of the total flour. For every cup of wheat flour, I add about a teaspoon of gluten. I'm giving amounts for a medium (1-1/2 lb)loaf. Measurements in (parens)are for the 1lb and 2lb loaves. In my bread machines, wet ingredients go in first. I do wait until ingredients are fairly well mixed before I add the salt.

How To Make farmhouse white bread (for bread machine)

  • 1
    Add ingredients in the correct order for your bread machine, except for the sesame seeds. *** Remember that you can substitute wheat(or some other) flour for part of the bread flour. Add an appropriate amount of gluten if you use wheat flour.
  • 2
    Set your machine for the correct sized loaf, and desired loaf color.
  • 3
    Add sesame seeds when the machine beeps for add-ins.
  • This was a bread machine loaf.
    The next time your machine beeps, you will have a delicious loaf of bread.

    Note: I sometimes use the bread machine to make dough only, then place in a bread pan, sprinkle with more sesame seeds, let rise and bake in the oven at 350 for 20-30 min. until golden brown. (I keep my eye on it for color, sometimes I forget to check the actual time.)
