Subway is an American restaurant franchise that primarily sells sandwiches and salads. Subway Sandwich Bread is famous across the globe. My family is not different and loves to have subway sandwiches at any time of the day.

I am crazy about bread and more so baking my bread at home. I love to ensure that my family is eating hygienic and preservative-free bread. And this gives me immense pleasure to bake for my family.

Subway Sandwich Bread Recipe

Here we start with subway bread recipe. In a bowl add yeast and sugar. Add some lukewarm milk to it, stir it and let it rest until yeast blooms. You can use water as well but I felt this bread taste better with milk.

In a kneading bowl, take refined flour, salt, and activated yeast solution. Start kneading the dough by adding room temperature milk little by little.

Prepare a soft and sticky dough. For this recipe, I have consumed in a total of 250 ml milk (including the milk used for yeast activation). However, the amount can vary depending upon your flour quality.

Once dough binds, add 2 tbsp olive oil and continue to knead for another two minutes.

 The dough will become soft and smooth. Keep it in a bowl and cover the bowl with cling wrap or clean kitchen towel.

Leave it on the warmer place of your kitchen until it becomes double in volume.

For me, the dough took 40 minutes to double as the temperature at my place these days is between 20 °C to 22 °C. Colder the weather, longer the proofing time will be. You just need to wait until your dough double.

Once the dough doubles, punch it and take it out on the counter. I divided the dough into 3 equal portions to make 3 subway sandwich bread loaves of 9’ inches each.

You can keep the portion size as per your requirement. There is no hard and fast rule for that. Keep it simple.

Now shape each portion into a log and place them on a baking tray leaving some space in-between. Cover the tray with a kitchen towel and again leave it on the counter to double in volume.

Because it was afternoon here and the temperature is now around 25 °C so this time dough took only 30 minutes to rise. I was happy to see my swollen loaves, sorry I mean risen loaves.

Let’s bake our subway sandwich bread

 Using a knife, score the bread, and brush it with milk. Bake these loaves in a preheated oven at 200 °C for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, take the baked bread out from the oven and transfer it on a cooling rack. Brush the bread crust with butter if you like soft crust. In case you like rustic bread, skip brushing with butter.

Let the bread rest for 30 minutes.

Once bread comes to the room temperature, slice it lengthwise and fill it with your choice of stuffing and sauces.

Enjoy your fresh homemade Subway Sandwich Bread and make delicious sandwiches.
