Bread Machine Recipe - Plain White

I think the bread machine is such a great invention!

This is the recipe I use for a 1 ½ lb. plain white loaf.

You will need:

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 ¼ tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 cup warm water
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 yeast packet or 2 ¼ tsp. (I use bread machine yeast)


Mix the flour, salt, and sugar together.
Put in the oil and water first, the flour mixture second, and the yeast last.

I set my bread machine on basic light, and it runs for 3hrs. 20min.

Our usual Sunday meal is a roast in the crock pot with carrots, potatoes, and onions. That smells great when we walk in the door from church, but when you add in the aroma of fresh-baked bread, oh my goodness, it is wonderful!

Have a great weekend, everyone! :)



  1. GREAT!Thanks, Jacob will love this, he likes making bread.
    Isnt that horrible how the teacher did the girl, and some parents are FOR Him :( That is so sad.

  2. It baked up so beautifully, too Melanie! I have a bread machine, but it's old and I never use it. I may just give this a try. If I do, I'll post and let you know.

    Have a blessed weekend my friend!


  3. MMMM! There's nothing like warm fresh homemade bread!

  4. aren't those crockpot roasts the best?? The meat always comes out so juicy! bread looks delicious too;I helped myself to a slice on the way out :)

    enjoy the weekend :)


  5. You know, I haven't used mine in awhile, but now that you're posting this recipe, I'm thinking I should get it out and use it again. I use my crockpot alot though :-)
