Easy Bread Machine Bread

Warm homemade bread is one of my most favorite things in the entire world! When I was little, my mom used to make homemade bread from scratch fairly frequently. She would bake 4-5 loaves at a time. We’d enjoy a couple loafs fresh and she’d freeze a couple to use later. It was a lot of work, but we loved devouring her bread with her homemade jams and honey from my grandpa’s farm. Yum!

I remember loving how wonderful her homemade bread made our home smell. I’d help melt the butter on the tops of the loaves when she pulled them from the oven.

Get homemade bread the easy way with this easy Bread Machine White Bread recipe. Hearty and delicious!

Bread Machine Recipe

Fast forward to today, and I still LOVE a good loaf of homemade bread. Nothing beats it! But I simply don’t have time {or energy!} to make homemade bread from scratch. But I want my kids to have good memories of homemade bread. So I do the next best thing and that is, I make home made bread….with my trusty bread machine! And its delicious!

Of course I use my mom’s bread machine bread recipe. It is hearty, soft, and SO DELICIOUS! My kids love it! {who am I kidding, I love it!} The egg in the recipe makes it so that it doesn’t taste like other bread machine recipes. This one has that homemade taste you crave.

We’ve had several Snow Days here in Richmond, VA and on those cold, winter days, I love making a fresh loaf of bread with my bread machine to enjoy with the kids. {see my Instagram}

    Great idea; we’ve had a bread machine for several years and I’ve never been satisfied with the results; so we don’t make it very often (not even once in a Winter season). Just wondering: Is that a loaf pan you used in your post? What size loaf pan is being used? I may want to try this out soon. TFS :)

    1. 1.1

      Hi Kelli! Thanks for stopping by! I used a regular size loaf pan :)

    Just wondered why you bake in a loaf pan instead of the bread machine. Does it turn out differently?

    1. 2.1

      The pan in my bread machine is almost square. I prefer my homemade bread to be more of a traditional shape and size, so that’s why I take it out and bake in a regular loaf pan :)

    Hi Linda
    I really love and enjoy your posts. I love crafting but just don’t find the time. Suppose I’m too busy in my new kitchen. Well can I use this recipe and bake my bread in the machine?

    1. 3.1

      Yes, you can bake the bread in the bread machine or in the oven :)

  4. 4

    This recipe looks great. I feel like the one I’ve been using doesn’t slice properly, it just doesn’t hold the shape. Will definitely try this one out!

    Will the bread still turn out good if I just I do the whole process in the bread machine? Guess I don’t like to play with dough!

    1. 5.1

      Yep! You can cook it in the machine if you’d like to :)

    That’s not cool! I wanted a bread machine recipe that used the machine for all..baking too! I live in a bus, have no oven or roaster. False advertising girl….

    1. 6.1

      It CAN be cooked in the bread machine. I choose not to because my break machine pan is a weird squarish size. So don’t worry, you can just leave it in there to bake!

    Just wondering if you used regular flour or bread flour? Thanks!

    1. 7.1

      I use regular flour :)

    You mentioned that your mom often times froze the bread too. After it has been baked? How long will it keep in the freezer? Any other tips on freezing? Thanks!

    1. 8.1

      Hi Shan, My mom froze baked loaves of bread. She would let them cool, then wrap very well in plastic wrap and then put tin foil over them. Then she’d write the date with a sharpie on the tin foil. We usually went through them within a month or two, but I would imagine they would last 3 months in the freezer, but that’s my guess. Hope that helps! :)

    I made this bread yesterday, and it is by far the BEST bread I’ve ever made. I’ve tried tons of recipes in my bread machine, and I never liked out they turned out. I am using the same Oster bread machine, and not only do I also hate the shape of the pan but I feel like the pan gives the crust a weird chemical flavor when it bakes inside the machine. This recipe came out buttery soft, flakey with a perfect crust. My husband and I devoured the entire loaf in one day, so I’m back for round two. ;-) Oh also, for those considering substitutions, I did not have regular milk so I used plain unsweetened almond milk and it turned out great.

    1. 9.1

      Thank you for the feedback, Britt! I am glad you guys enjoyed the recipe as much as we do!

    I’m new to trying to use my bread machine. Do you have to do anything to activate the yeast or just dump it into the pan? I attempted this, just put all the ingredients into the pan and turned it on. After the dough cycle I just has a pan of bits or lumps–nothing that looked like dough. Not sure what I did wrong. Was I supposed to “activate” the yeast first? Anybody know?

    1. 10.1

      Hi Vicki, No you do not activate the yeast when using a bread machine. When you use a bread machine, it is important to always put the water/liquids in first and put the yeast in a tiny hole in the flour on top as the very last added ingredient. Also, make sure your butter is soft or it won’t mix in. Hope that helps! I use my bread machine almost with this recipe and love it!

    Recently got some tapioca flour and was wondering if this could be used in place of regular flour or bread flour. Also, I have the same bread machine!

    1. 11.1

      That’s awesome we’re bread machine twinners! It’s a good one :) I am not sure on the tapioca flour. Sorry! I’ve never owned, let alone, used tapioca flour so I am clueless.

  12. 12

    Do you use active dry yeast or fast rising yeast??

  13. 13

    Is this for a 1 or 1.5 lb loaf?

  14. 14

    Love this recipe… simple, yet delicious! I will be making it again today! I also don’t care for the weird shape my bread maker has and often make rolls or put it in a different pan! Thank you for this recipe!
    Also, we don’t live far from Richmond! Grew up in VA :)

    1. 14.1

      Hi Lora! I’m so glad you like the recipe! We make it often :) Thanks for saying hi! Fun to “meet” a fellow Virginian. ha!

    I know this is an old post, but I had a few questions. I just got a bread machine and I’m very excited to try it out for the first time. My sister was telling me that she has to make sure her water is a specific temp so that she will get consistent results and also that the yeast needs to be near the sugar in order to be activated. Does this really matter, or are simple steps like you listed in your recipe really okay? One more thing, you said in the directions for the yeast to not touch the liquids, does this mean the butter also? Thanks for helping out a newbie bread maker! :-)

    THANK YOU! It turned out amazing! I baked on 185C for 30min FAN FORCED.
