I just wanted a very simple white bread last night to go with our stew, and this one fit the bill. So soft and tasty.
from "The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook"
for 1 1/2 lb loaf
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. milk
3 Tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into pieces
3 c. bread flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. gluten
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/4 tsp. bread machine yeast
Place all the ingredients in the pan, in order. Set crust on medium and program for basic or french bread (I used french bread).
When the baking cycle is over, let cool before slicing. (We didn't do this. We immediate sliced it up and ate with our stew. So, so good.)
