Farmhouse White Bread (for Bread Machine)

Marcia Mayfield


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.
  4. The next time your machine beeps, you will have a delicious loaf of bread.
  5. 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.)
