Noreen’s Sandwich Bread Loaf

This recipe comes from my sister-friend Noreen from Noreen’s Kitchen.  It is the BEST sandwich loaf I have tried to bake, to date. It is incredible. I use this recipe for MANY breads. It is soft, and has amazing crumb and rise. Head over to her website and you tube channel and tell her The Kneady Homesteader sent you! 😀

Noreen’s Sandwich Bread Loaf:
2 tsp instant yeast
2 tbl granulated sugar
2 tbl soft butter
1 tsp salt
2 tbl milk powder
1 1/2 cups warm water
4 cups bread flour

In my kitchenaid Stand Mixer I add in this order:
warm water
milk powder

Using dough hook attachment, mix on level 2 until dough ball forms, then set timer to knead it for 5 minutes.

Remove from mixing bowl, form into ball, place in oiled bowl and cover for 1 hour. Punch dough, remove, lay flat on board, press out remaining air bubble, roll into loaf shape tucking in ends and pinching dough…. place in oiled bread pan and allow to rise 1 hour…… remove tea towel, and bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-35 minutes. Once removed, coat top of bread with butter to keep the top soft.
