Old-Fashioned Buttermilk White Bread


Photobucket

This is seriously the yummiest bread ever! This is our go-to bread during the week. Last Thursday I was particularly in a baking bread kind of mood. I baked 2 loaves, which was good thing. We had company over and we all gobbled up one of the loaves. Since my family loves this recipe so much, I thought I would share with all my friends. This is a bread machine recipe, which of course is always the easiest and yummiest.

Here Is What You Need:

1/3 cup Water
1 cup buttermilk
2 tbl of butter or vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
4 tbl brown sugar
3 cups flour
2 1/4 tsp yeast
4 tbl gluten (optional)

Here Is What You Do:

Put all ingredients in your bread machine, according to your manufacturers settings. Mine go in the exact order listed above.

Select dough setting. Mine takes about 1 hr 30mins

Once your dough cycle is finished, punch down the dough and place it in a greased loaf pan. I like to use Pam. I spray it all over the loaf pan, place in my bread dough and then spray the top with more Pam. I then put plastic wrap over the top and wait for it to rise. It should rise up and above the edges of the pan.

Once doubled in size, bake at 350' for 30 minutes or until lightly brown on top.

Take out of the oven and immediately rub a cold stick of butter over the top.
I do enough, so that my bread has a light coating of butter on top.

Let cool a few minutes and then remove from pan and onto a plate, 
where it will completely cool.

This bread is so yummy warm with butter and jelly, or for sandwiches, etc. You will not be sorry when you make this. It is Divine


* Make your own buttermilk by adding 1 tbl vinegar or lemon juice to milk. Let sit for 5 minutes. The vinegar/lemon juice will cause the milk to turn into buttermilk. Easy peasy!

  4. I have been making my own bread for the past few months now. I do it the same way, I let the bread machine do all the work and then I bake it in the oven. I have a big carton of buttermilk I need to use. I am going to try your bread recipe on Sunday. Do you warm the buttermilk or add it cold? I'll let you know how it turns out!

  5. I made this! I must have taken mine out of the pan too soon, because it collapsed on me, but before that it sure was big and beautiful like yours. I had to bake mine for around 30 minutes. Even though it collapsed, it tasted delicious. I will have to try it again and let it cool longer. Thanks for the tasty recipe!

  6. I am trying to bake my own bread, but I am not very good at it yet. For some reason me and baking do not get along to well, but practice makes perfect right ;) I am pinning this so I remember to make it! I am a new follower and look forward to more great recipes and tips!

  8. I always bake my own bread, I would never go back to shop bought bread. I do cheat a little and use a bread maker, and I follow a recipe from the back of a pack of bread flour…BUT…I add half a tespoon of Sesame oil to the mix once it’s no longer dry…the result is a very moreish flavour that cannot be beaten :-)

    1. I use a bread maker as well on dough cycle. When I am being real fancy I use my kitchen aide. It really just depends on how busy I am that day. both ways make it taste great.

    1. No I do bread maybe 2-3 times a week. I end up placing at least 1 loaf in the freezer for a rainy day when I don't feel like making bread.

  10. You just say flour for this recipe, not bread flour. Do you use regular flour or bread flour? I am curious since I notice you said you buy your flour at Costco and I don't remember them having bread flour, but I have been avoiding Costco lately to avoid spending too much money so maybe I am missing something.

    1. no you don't need one, you can do it by hand or with a mixer. Check out how I made my homemade hamburger buns. Those I did without a machine. It is the same process for making bread.

  12. I don't currently have a bread maker, however would like to purchase one. What brand bread maker do you use? Do you prefer one brand over another? There is so many out on the market, so I want to get an opinion of what others experiences are with bread makers.

  16. I am super excited. I found a bread maker in a consignment shop today for $29 and can't wait to try this and other recipes. I think my new bread maker will pay for itself over and over fairly quickly.

  17. I just made this recipe the other day and let me just say, it was absolutely delicious! It is only the second bread I have made in my new bread maker and I am going to be making it over and over for sure! I seriously could have eaten the whole loaf myself. Thanks for sharing!

  18. I am a newer follower- 7 weeks or so- and I have also started making my own beead. Is there any reason I can not just let it cycle all the way through in the bread machine until it is totally cooked? ... Yes, I am that lazy... :-). Thanks so much!

    1. You can absolutely do it for the full cycle in the bread machine. Just put it in and select basic bread. It comes out great!

  20. I made this yesterday and it is already gone :-/ SUPER yummy!! And based on the amount of liquid and yeast I did a rapid bake setting on my machine and let it cook in there as well. Thanks so much for sharing!!

  21. I am going to get some buttermilk to try this Monday! I would like to make and freeze for upcoming baby. ( March, I am planning my freezing craze in Jan. and Feb.) How would you recommend freezing? ( never froze bread) would it be better to freeze cooked or just the formed dough? If freezing cooked how long do you think it would stay fresh in Freezer?

  23. I love your recipe! Quick question- I'm new to making bread and the process of it. How long do you wait for your second rise? I've done 1 hour and it was huge, then I did 30 minutes and the bread tasted good but was denser. Whats your advice?

  24. Just made my first loaf & all I can say is FANTASTIC! I made it exactly as your recipe stated & it came out so pretty & brown and it is sooo moist!

    I've always been a little baking 'impaired' when it came to bread but not anymore!

    Thank-you! Thank-you! Thank-you! For sharing this recipe & all of your wonderful money saving tips! LOVE your blog! :)

  25. Just made my first loaf tonight & all I can say is FANTASTIC!! It was soo pretty!

    It came out all nice & brown & toasty & soo...soo moist! I've always been a bit baking 'impaired' in the bread department until I tried this bread recipe. I could seriously get in trouble with a loaf of this bread & some jam. :)

    Thank-you so very much for sharing the recipe & for all of your many money saving tips! LOVE your blog!!

  26. I am new to bread making and don't have a bread machine. I am looking into it but I don't want to botch this recipe without one. So I looked at how you made your hamburger buns and just want to make sure this sounds right before I attempt. So you would mix warm water, oil, brown sugar, and yeast in a bowl. Let sit for 10 minutes. Add buttermilk, salt, and flour and knead???

  29. What is the difference in using the gluten in the bread or not?

    1. Adding gluten is not essential, but it does allow your bread to stick together better.
