Homemade Fluffy White Bread
You just can't beat classic white bread - perfect for sandwiches, toast, and French toast.
Yield: 1 loaf
Ingredients
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 package (2¼ tsp, ¼oz, 7g) RED STAR Platinum Superior Baking Yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil
Instructions
  1. In mixing bowl, combine 1 cup flour, salt, sugar and yeast. Stir to combine; set aside. In a saucepan or microwave-safe dish, heat water and oil to 120-130°F.

  2. Add warm liquids to dry mixture; mix with dough whisk or wooden spoon until blended. Gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead for about 5 to 7 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Use additional flour if necessary.

  3. Place dough in lightly oiled bowl and turn to grease top. Cover; let rise until dough has doubled in size, about 45-60 minutes. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; punch down to remove air bubbles. Roll or pat into a 14x7-inch rectangle. Start with shorter side, roll up tightly, pressing dough into roll. Pinch edges and ends to seal. Place in greased 9x5-inch loaf pan. Cover; let rise until indentation remains after touching, about 30-45 minutes. Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 30-40 minutes. Remove from pan; cool on wire rack.

  1. If I use this for pizza dough does it have to rise the second time and can I split it and freeze it after first rise?

  2. in one of your videos you show the baker putting the bread in the microwave to proof. is there no heat, or just a closed microwave? thanks for all of the instructional videos
