Japanese White Bread

A crunchy golden crust gives way to soft bread. This white bread is very enjoyable with butter, a dollop of jam and coffee. If you want to replicate Japanese pizza toast, melt a few strips of white cheese and a fresh tomato slice or two. 

Adapted from Cuisinart's Basic White Bread-Machine Bread

  • 1½ cups warm water, 80 to 90 degrees
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3½ teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • ¼ cup nonfat dry milk
  • 2 teaspoons yeast (active dry, instant or bread machine)

Pour the water into the baking well of a bread making machine. Drop teaspoonfuls of butter into the water. Add the sugar, salt, bread flour and dry milk. Sprinkle in the yeast.

Ninja Note: Please mind the order of the ingredients. It’s important to place them into the bread machine maker as listed.

Select the white bread option…And enjoy as breakfast toast or sandwich lunch bread.
