 Good Morning!

My mom just gave me a bread machine, and I am so excited to use it.  I tried to make sandwich bread, but the crust is just to hard.  Does anyone have a recipe for wheat sandwich bread with a soft crust??

 

TIA!

Supermoist Wheat Bread


  • 1/2 c. warm water
  • 1/3 c. warm milk
  • 6 Tbsp. plain yogurt (can be Greek)
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp. instant mashed potato flakes
  • 2 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
  • 1 Tbsp. wheat germ
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 c. whole wheat bread flour (I used stone ground whole wheat flour, not necessarily for bread, and the bread turned out great!)
  • 1 tsp. active dry or instant yeast

Place all ingredients in bread pan in order listed.  Select Basic cycle (yes, Basic) and desired crust setting, or use dough setting. Press start.  If using dough setting, remove dough after the cycle ends and form into a loaf.  Let rise in greased bread pan and bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes.

Good luck and let us know how that recipe turns out.  I kinda want a bread machine if I can get one cheap.

Me when I made bread in the bread machine.  After it came out.  I'd wrap it up in a bag.  The steam from the bread as it cooled. Made the crust not so hard.

I've made that recipe several times.  It turns out VERY good every time!

That looks good!  What is an average amount to spend on a bread machine?  Is a bread machine the type of appliance you don't want to buy second hand?

Both of my machines were purchased secondhand...one for $20, one for $25.  The Sunbeam that I have I've seen for around $55 new...on Amazon.
