Ingredients Needed to Make the Bread Machine White Bread
Bread makes an excellent addition to any large family meal. Since this recipe is so easy to make, you can add it to your large family menu every night. Before you start preparing the Large Family Bread Machine White Bread, purchase these ingredients to add to the bread machine:
- Water. You will need to heat the water to 110 degrees before you put it into the bread machine.
- Olive Oil. Add three tablespoons of olive oil to your bread machine. If you do not have olive oil, you can use vegetable oil as a substitute.
- Sugar. The sugar gives the bread the perfect balance of flavors and does not make it too sweet.
- Bread Flour. If you want to make bread, bread flour is one of the most important ingredients to use!
- Active Dry Yeast. You can also use bread machine yeast to ensure that your bread rises to its fullest potential.
The only other ingredient needed to make the bread in your bread machine is salt. You may also want to check my must-have kitchen tools to stock your kitchen.
How Freeze or Store White Bread
After you make the Bread Machine White Bread, you need to know how to keep it fresh. Bread is best when stored in a paper bag instead of plastic. You can put it in a large paper bread bag and seal the bag shut with a piece of tape. If you do not have a paper bag, you can use plastic wrap. It is best to slice the bread down into individual pieces before wrapping the loaf.
If you want to prepare several loaves and store them in the freezer to avoid running out of bread mid-week, slice them into individual pieces and place the loaf in a freezer bag, removing as much air as possible. It will keep in the freezer for up to three months.
