    Default Homemade Sandwich bread

    Does anyone have a good sandwich bread recipe (either bread machine or
    oven)? I am looking for bread that turns out like "Wonder-bread" or
    store bought bread. I made some once, but it was too heavy and very

    Re: : Homemade Sandwich bread

    Good Morning

    I just joined yesterday. My name is Karen and I live in Ohio with my hubby and
    3 teenage sons. I'm a sahm trying to live on a tight budget and getting tighter
    with the cost of everything going up except our income.

    Anyway, on the bread. There is not a way to make an exact "wonder" bread. They
    use so many preservatives and such in their bread. You can make a lighter bread
    by adding vital gluten (available at our Meijer and Kroger stores) and dough
    enhancer (available at health food store or make your own). Also, be patient
    and let rise all the way.

    I add 1/4 cup vital gluten and 1 tablespoon dough enhancer to 6 cups flour. The
    other thing is to make sure that you knead the dough long enough for the gluten
    to form (you can gently stretch a small hunk of dough and it looks like silly
    putty - stretches but doesn't break).

    Below is my recipe for Bread.

    2 cups water (110)
    1 tablespoon SAF instant yeast
    5 to 6 cups flour (I use whole wheat, but have used white also)
    1/4 cup vital gluten
    1 tablespoon dough enhancer
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup honey
    1 teaspoon sea salt

    In a mixing bowl, place warm water, yeast, and 3 cups flour. Stir to mix well,
    then cover and let sponge 30 minutes.

    Turn mixer on; add oil, honey, gluten, dough enhancer and salt. Mix to blend.
    Add flour, 1 cup at a time, until dough cleans the sides of bowl and is no
    longer sticky. Knead for 6 to 8 minutes (with mixer). Let rise 30 minutes or
    until double. Mix again to get air out. Remove dough to oiled counter and
    divide into 2 pieces. Form into loaves and put in greased pans. Let rise in
    arm overn (turned off) until 1 1/2 inches above the rim. With loaves still in
    oven, turn on and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cover with
    clean towl to soften crust.

    Dough Enhancer

    1 cup lecithin granules
    1 tablespoon vitamin C powder (I powder my chewable C's)
    1 tablespoon ground ginger

    Mix all ingredients and store in tightly closed glass jar in refrigerator. Add
    to breadmaker in amounts equal to yeast with other dry ingredients.

    Apparently, the ginger gooses the yeast and makes it act more swiftly, the
    ascorbic acid strengthens the gluten, and the lecithin aids the oil in causing
    the strands of gluten to slip against each other more easily and thus rise

    Hope this helps
