2 3/4 cups
active dry yeast
Just to add a note, about this fantastic bread, 18 TBS is 1 cup + 2 TBS....
18 TBS is just time consuming. But sure can't beat the bread.
I tried something different with this recipe and it didn't work too well. I did it on the dough cycle and baked it in the oven. I guess I didn't bake it long enough because the center was doughy. I outer pieces had a wonderful flavor. I am trying it again now and will bake it in the bread maker.
Fresh out of the bread machine, this bread is absolutely delicious. The only drawback to the recipe, is the measurement for the water. It would be easier if it were converted to the standard measurement of 1 cup and 2 tablespoons.
just cut into our loaf from this recipe.. beautiful on the light setting and quite lovely in the crumb. My machine runs two raises and then a proof run so i did not stop it and reset. Used King Aurthur unbleach bread machine flower and corn oil.. no other changes... came out divine. Lots of flavor. If you start out with GOOD flour you get good bread. Thanks!
I'm a first time bread maker and this came out great. I bake mine in the oven 350 for 25mins and it is perfect. This makes incredibly yummy grilled cheese sandwiches. Update: hubby gave me a Breadman breadmachine for my bday. I set it to basic loaf on rapid for crust setting. My machine has 3 rise cycles so I take the dough out just as it goes into the 3rd rise and form it in breadpan. Let rise again and bake as above. Done in about 2hrs with no problems. I do use about 3 cups of flour and probably a 1/4 tsp more yeast. I make this about every other day and my daughters hover around the oven waiting for their treat.
I got this off Allrecipes about four years ago and have been using it ever since. It is perfect. Has become traditional for me to make everyone a loaf at Thanksgiving to have their leftover turkey sandwiches on. I use the easier measurment of 1 cup + 2 tablespoons for the water.
My bread machine sat unused until I found this recipe. Now my kids tell me to not buy bread at the store anymore. They want me to make this bread. I have also given out loaves to neighbors and those neighbors told other neighbors about how good it was. Great bread recipe
This bread was what supermarket white breads strive to be. I was surprised at the softness of the crust. Usually I don't care for the crust of bread machine loaves but this one was awesome! My four year old daughter helped my make this so it is definately kid friendly and my eight year old son asked me to make this again instead of buying supermarket bread. I'd say that says it all.
