Sandwich Bread Recipe

This is an adapted version of the America’s Test Kitchen Sandwich Bread. It is a simple recipe where the stand mixer and yeast do most of the work!
I substituted olive oil for butter and adjusted the amount of flour and salt. I like to toast a slice and enjoy it with strawberry jam as breakfast.
I hope you’ll enjoy it.
