Whitey white hubby requested sandwich loaf!

Hubby got super bored with all the wheaty heavy breads… so heres some super fluffy light white daily sandwich loaf! I ran out of butter, you can sub olive oil with butter. Though the oil also makes the bread as soft! This one is headed to this weeks YeastSpotting!
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 2-3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large egg (Wilcox Cage Free)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 packet quick rise yeast (1.25 teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
Directions:
  1. Warm 1/4 cup water and add sugar and yeast to it . Mix well and keep aside for 10 minutes or until frothy.
  2. Grease the mixer bowl and add in 2 cups bread flour and 2 cups all purpose flour and salt. Mix well.
  3. Add in the oil , orange juice, water and yeast mixture and knead for 10-12 minutes( batches of 3-4 minutes and then scrape the bowl and wait for the mixer to cool a little if too warm)
  4. Dough should be soft and pliable and non sticky.
  5. Place dough in well oiled container, covered with plastic wrap in a warm place for 1.5 hours
  6. Punch dough down and knead for a minute. Shape into loaf by pulling on all sides and tucking under. Use flour on hands to avoid dough sticking to hands.
  7. Place loaf in well oiled bread pan and cover with a damp kitchen towel. Let rise for half an hour. Bake loaf at 375 degrees F for 35 minutes.
  8. Cool completely before slicing. I usually place the cooled bread in the refrigerator for half an our before slicing with an electric knife for nice and clean slices!

    Thanks everyone!
    @memoria, no particular purpose for the orange juice. I just like the hint of orange taste which shows up unexpectedly sometimes when you toast the bread:)
