Homemade Sandwich Bread

A friend of mine sent me this recipe saying it's easy, you need to try these. I thought as long as I don't have to knead dough, I'll give it a try. They turned out to be really easy to make and yummy.

Wheat flour doesn't work with this recipe, you have to use all purpose.

I'm thinking of adding sliced olive pieces to this bread next time. You would need to add it to the mixture before it's put in a bowl to rise.

You can actually decide how big and what shape you want your sandwiches. Just shape them according to how you would like them, they don't need to be made into rounds.

Although I use these to make sandwiches, they are great all by themselves:) Especially while they are warm. Enjoy:)


3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 package or 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups warm milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup canola or light olive oil
1 egg yolk

Whisk together dry ingredients except the sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon.

Meanwhile mix the sugar into the milk and warm it up. Don't boil.

Mix the milk mixture along with the oil to the dry mixture until just combined.

Cover with plastic wrap and let dough rise at room temperature, about 1 hour.

When the dough is ready, take fist size pieces and form into round balls.

Arrange on prepared baking sheets, spacing evenly.

Brush each with egg yolks.

Preheat oven to 150 degrees and wait until the dough rises again, about 20 - 30 minutes.

Raise the heat to 350 degrees. Bake until breads are golden, about 25-30 minutes.

Transfer to rack and cool completely.
