White Batter Bread

User Rating 5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Stir up this easy bread before any meal; make it a day ahead of time and toast it for breakfast.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: Two loaves; 20 slices


  • 6-1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 packages active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • More butter


In a large bowl, combine 3 cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. Add the warm water, buttermilk, and 2 tablespoons butter; blend at low speed until combine, then beat 3 minutes at medium speed. Gradually stir in rest of flour by hand to make a stiff batter. Cover and let rise until double, about 1/2 hour.

Grease two 9" x 5" loaf pans with unsalted butter or solid shortening. Stir down batter and spoon into prepared pans. Cover and let rise until batter comes to the top of the pans, about 25-30 minutes. Bake in preheated 375 degrees F oven for 35-40 minutes until golden brown and firm. Remove from pans and brush tops with butter. Let cool on wire rack.

very easy, Guest

I have never made bread before. This turned out great. I used half whole wheat flour.
