1 1/4 cups
dry milk powder

active dry yeast
This recipe makes a nice dense compact texture. The flavor is great, especially right out of the oven and makes good toast. I let the bread machine to the work thru the 2nd rise, then I shape it, place it in 9X5 pan and bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Yummy. Thanks Heather.
I thought this bread tasted like English Muffin bread, but with more work. I made it by hand instead of using the bread machine, and i didnt have any bread flour so i used regular. This might have made a difference. It tasted good and was really good as toast or with butter and jam, but wasnt good for sandwiches which is what I made it for.
Yummy bread recipe my husband and my 1 year devored this in almost one setting.... I do not like to use sugar, so I used two tablespoons of honey instead of a 1 tablespoon of sugar.... ANd it was fluffy,soft and oh so yummy
after I mix the sugar, yeast and water, I place it in my sink w/water of the same temp for the 10 minutes. My yeast activates much better this way and the bread is always perfect! Thank You
For my first bread machine experience this recipe was very easy and most important the family loved it. I did bake it in the oven and not in the ABM, I controlled the color and texture of the crust better in the oven. Carol
This turned out nicely in appearance, but I didn't like the taste or the heavy texture. For those using yeast in the jar, the equivalent is 2-1/4 tsp, or check the fine print on your jar.
Very easy to make. I made this several times and it keeps falling in the middle when it bakes. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but it still bakes really nice and tastes good. Always soft in the middle and works really well for sandwiches. I'll get that falling thing fixed one of these times! Thanks for sharing!
This is a good, simple, everyday white bread. I reduced the sugar to 1-1/2 tsp. as my bread machine has a tendency to make the bread overrise, and I used 1-1/2 tsp. of bread machine yeast. I liked the addition of the dry milk powder which contributes softness and helps keep the bread fresh. I also like that this recipe does not call for a lot of butter or oil. I chose the basic white setting with the medium crust. Very versatile, basic bread for sandwiches or toast.
