Sandwich yeast bread

If you are running out of time, this quick sandwich bread with yeast recipe will become your life saver. The bread turns out very soft and delicious every time I use this recipe. It is absolutely perfect for sandwiches.




  • all  sponge on it’s peak
  • 250 g bread flour 
  • 10 g salt
  • 30 g sugar
  • 25g soft unsalted butter

Shiny glaze

  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup hot boiling water



  • 8 am dissolve dry instant yeast in the water, add flour, mix well with spoon, cover let ferment at 80-84 F until it increases in volume in 2 or more times, about 2-3 hours (use oven with light on as a proofing cell).


  • 11 am ready sponge should grew 2 times or more and become bubbly.
  • In a bowl of stand mixer add all sponge, sugar, salt and flour.
  • Mix dough on low speed of your mixing machine for 5 minutes, or KitchenAid on speed 3 for 7 minutes until well incorporated.
  • Add soft butter, increase the speed of mixer, mix for 10 more minutes until the dough is well incorporated.

Note: if the dough seems too stiff, add 20g water, continue kneading. If it still too stiff, add 10-20g more. The dough should come up together and have a smooth surface.

  • Cover the dough and let it proof for 1-2 hours at 78-86F/ 28-30C until it doubles or more in volume.
  • Shape loaf as a tight roll.
  • Transfer the shaped loaf into a Pullman loaf pan , cover, and let proof for 1-2 hours at 78-86F/28-30C until double or more in volume.
  • Preheat the oven to 450F 
  • Score the loaf, bake it for 10 min with steam 
  • Lower the temperature to 350F, bake for 20 more minutes without the steam until golden brown.
  • Meanwhile prepare the shiny glaze by mixing cornstarch, water and sugar together. Then add hot boiling water and mix until no lumps remain.
  • Remove the bread from the oven.
  • Generously spread the shiny glaze all over your loaf.
  • Let the bread cool down.

  6. What does “bake with steam” mean?

    1. It’s ether setting in your oven or you can create the steam by placing tray under the loaf, filled with hot boiling water.

  7. buenas tardes en total seria 500 gramos de harina?

  8. Can we store the final dough in the freezer before bake it in the oven? How do you suggest ?

    1. You can proof it halfway, then move it to fridge and bake next day. But let it warm up first before baking

  9. Hi,
    Thank you for sharing your recipe, I’m currently trying it out.
    I wonder what is the “bake with steam” for?
    If I bake without using it, will it make any difference?
    Thank you
    Have a nice day.

    1. Hi!
      Steam will make cryst little thicker . Without steam crust will remain soft.

      1. Thank so much for your information.
        Have a great day 🙏

  10. Thank you for sharing this recipe! Does the bread store well in the freezer if we wanted to make a large batch and store it? Thanks!

    1. Hi!
      Just let it cool down completely.

  11. Hello! I tried with spelt bread flour and I had to adjust the water amount for the sponge. Added between 50-70 ml of water extra. Otherwise it was way too tight. Let’s see if it works..

    1. That was smart, because spelt flour requires more water, then regular flour.

  12. I was motivated to bake this bread yesterday for my children since they love to eat toast from the shop. They say mine is better and all of a bread is already gonne. Now I’m gonna do 1 and 1/2 of measurement. Thank you very much for sharing the recipe ❤️

  13. How do we bake with steam at home? I’m new to baking bread and haven’t come across this method yet so any info is appreciated !

    1. I do one of these options:
      – put ice cubes on preheated baking tray and put it under tray with bread ;
      – pur boiled water in a preheated bowl or tray (my favorite);
      – spray massively oven inside (on the sides) with a water spray (like the one for flowers) and a bit on bread itself. I use it mostly as additional moisturizer not like the main.

  14. The bread is amazing. I have just cooked it again. That is my second time. Easy and tasty! Added to my bread recipies list. Thank you so much for great recipy and guidance!
