Try this easy to make Bread Machine White Bread. I have tried them all and this is the best one. Adopted from Ron's White Bread Recipe.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 2 minutes
Total Time 7 minutes


  • 1 Cup water
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 Tbsp Dry Milk
  • 2 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil, You can use whichever oil you like, I prefer Olive Oil.
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 Cups Bread Flour
  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons of Bread Machine Yeast or quick rise yeast


  1. Add the ingredients to the bread pan the way they are listed from first to last. Your yeast should be sitting on top of the flour. To add to the flavor, you can add a few pats of butter on top of the flour also.
  2. Put the bread pan in the bread machine and use setting number 1 with a loaf size 1 to 1.5lbs and a medium crust.
  3. Once the bread is almost done, check for internal temperature with an instant-read thermometer
  4. Once it reaches 190 degrees internal temperature, remove the bread pan. Even a few degrees over can be bad. It will cause your bread to dry out faster so do not skip this step.
  5. Remove bread from the pan immediately and place bread on a cooling rack.
  6. Allow bread to come to room temperature before slicing or storing.


You may have to open the lid on your bread machine when it first starts to mix and scrape the sides. If the dough appears dry and crumbly, add water slowly a teaspoon at a time until it forms a nice smooth ball. If it is sticky, add a teaspoon of flour until dough forms a nice smooth ball. Most bread machines offer a period during the rising stage where you can add dry ingredients such as poppy seeds, nuts, chia seeds, or any other type of seeds and nuts. This is a great option to fortify your bread.

One of my VERY FAVORITE bread recipes-I have made this countless times and everybody LOVES it!! I also want to thank you on the tip of checking the temp early-I have been making bread machine bread for decades, and I guess I always assumed that the machine knew what it was doing. Now I check the temp and wow, what a difference!! Sometimes the bread is done 20 minutes before the machine says so! I thank you so much for this tip-it is really a game changer!!

Dslayer, You are welcome. Yeah I tried many over the years in the bread machine and this one just turns out great. Also checking the temp will make the bread fresher longer. It is a game changer. Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks, Ronnie

Thanks! You should give a bread machine a try. It's pretty much set it and forget it. When I first got one I tried a lot of recipes till I found this one. I tweak it and it always comes out perfect!
