Sandwich bread

  • Author: Carolina Rojas





  • 1 cup of warm water (105°-115°F) (40°-46°C)
  • 1 packet of  active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
  • 1 cup of warm milk (105°-115°F) (40°-46°C)
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
  • 5 1/2 to 6 cups of flour
  • 1 egg yolk with 1 teaspoon of water


  1. Combine 1/2 cup of warm water with the yeast and a pinch of granulated sugar in a small bowl. Stir until dissolving well and let it stand for about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, place the remaining water, milk, butter, sugar and salt. Then add the yeast mixture, stir a little and add 2 cups of flour, and mix well.
  3. Continue stirring (can be with the help of a hand or electric mixer to bring the pieces together). Incorporate the flour well and make a creamy mixture, then go adding by 1/2 cup of flour at a time.
  4. When the dough doesn’t stick to the bowl anymore, you may start kneading for a couple of minutes.
  5. Then in another bowl that has been greased with oil or butter, put the dough in there shaped like a ball, and let the mixture stand while covered with a plastic wrap or a dish towel for an hour or until the dough doubles in volume.
  6. Then, form the individual breads, which could make about 8 units or more, depending on the size you want for your bread. You can make them smaller for hamburgers, and that way they could make up to 12 units.
  7. Cover the oven tray with parchment paper, and put the breads on top. Let the breads stand in there a little more again.
  8. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  9. Just before placing the bread in the oven, brush each bread with a mixture of egg yolk and some water.
  10. Bake for about 15-20 minutes.
