Homemade Sandwich Bread

Yay another bread recipe.

This one is from King Arthur Flour. Its the only flour I use, and their recipes are great.

This bread is moist, soft, and a perfect crumb for sandwiches.

Homemade Sandwich Bread

From King Arthur

1/2 cup milk 
1/2 to 2/3 cup hot water 
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 packet active dry yeast
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) melted butter

In the bowl of a stand mixer, put milk and 1/2 cup hot water. Add yeast, sugar, and salt. Let proof 10 minutes.

Add the flour and melted butter. 

Mix on medium with dough hook until it starts to come together. Lower speed to "2"

Let it come together in a ball. Add a little more water if it seems dry.

Let machine knead for 8 minutes.

Place in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise 1-2 hours in a warm place.

Turn out onto sprayed surface and shape into a 8" log.

Put in a lightly sprayed 8" loaf pan (I used a 9" one. It was ok, just a little shorted and wider)

Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let sit 60 minutes, or until top is 1" above edge of pan

Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

Let cool completely on cooling rack before slicing. Store in plastic bag
