Hi all, does anyone have a tried and true basic white loaf bread recipe for a breadmaker. I used to have a no fail recipe but have since misplaced it. thank you. It was something like this from memory: 3 cups flour, oil (unknown teaspoons), 1 teaspoon salt and sugar and unknown mils cold water, plus yeast?

My recipe is the same as clawed2's except I use 1 teasp sugar and 1 tablesp oil. I use the same recipe when making ½ and ½ with wholemeal flour and add 1½ tablsp gluten flour. Sometimes I also add 1 tablsp each linseed, poppyseed and chia seed to that recipe too.
Never had a fail when using that recipe. It's pretty forgiving as you can play around with it.

I have used this recipe with 2 different breadmakers and it's always been good for me

2 1/2 C flour - white or mixed with wholemeal
1 T milk powder
1 T sugar
1 t. Salt
1T oil
2 t yeast with bread improver
300 mls water. - I'm a bit flexible with the water, my original recipe called for 250ml and it wasn't enough. I started looking at the dough and adding more water until it was sticky when it was being mixed.
Cook on the white bread setting for small loaf.

3 cups flour
1 /12 tsps yeast
250mls water
1 tsp salt

Milk, oil, butter etc is just if you want a soft squashy loaf - like for weet buns.
Sugar isn't necessary at all.
