You don't need a bread machine if you have an American made KitchenAid Mixer. I've got an easy recipe for homemade white bread. It is basic, simple, and wholesome.

During warmer months I try and buy food items that are grown locally and then I freeze them to use during the winter months. I feel it is important to eat locally and shop locally as much as possible, and this is true when buying products as well. I try and buy products that are Made in the USA, but it can be hard sometimes to find what you need. However, one of my favorite, most used kitchen items is in fact made in the good ole’ USA and that is my KitchenAid mixer,. KitchenAid has been around for generations; it is a trusted name and appliance in many kitchens, including mine. It is made in Ohio.
I use it for countless recipes and foods. Truly, my KitchenAid Mixer is the most used small appliance my kitchen.
One of my favorite items to use my KitchenAid mixer for is Homemade White Bread, but when I tell people that they often look at me like I am crazy and they always ask how I find time to do it with my busy life. The truth is, however, that baking bread is really simple and once you get the hang of it you can whip up bread in no time.
While you can obviously knead the bread yourself, I find it much easier to dump the ingredients in my KitchenAid Mixer and let the mixer do the mixing and the kneading for me. Why spend my time kneading the bread, when my KitchenAid mixer has a bread attachment with it? I can start the bread while I am in the kitchen and just keep my eye on it allowing me to do other tasks.
Making the bread using your stand mixer is an easy way to make a great tasting loaf of bread, one that is better for you than any loaf you could buy at the store because you can control the ingredients and you know that there is nothing artificial in it. Furthermore, you get to feel like a rockstar baker to your family.
I hope you try this recipe and use your mixer and enjoy making your own bread as much as I do.
*Note: I store my loaves in large ziploc bags to keep them fresh but trust me, we eat them pretty quickly!
