I tried out my new bread machine over the weekend for the first time, and I am completely in love with it. It's easy to use, the bread came out nicely, and I love not having to keep checking back on my dough.
I decided to start off with one of the basic recipes that comes with the machine:
Homestyle White Bread
1 cup + 2 T water (75° - 85° F)
1 T butter, room temp
2 T sugar
1 T non-fat dry milk
1 1/2 t salt
3 c bread flour
2 1/2 t bread machine yeast
- Attach kneading blade to bread pan
- Add ingredients to pan in the order in the recipe
- Set bread machine to basic mode for 1.5 lb loaf
- All done!
