Like many others I was really hesitant to ignore the many warnings to not proof the yeast when using a bread machine. But I've been really bummed to not be able to make a light fluffy loaf for sandwiches, so I was desperate. I'm so glad I tried it! I don't cook with vegetable oil so I subbed olive oil, and I added 1/2 tsp of salt as recommended by others. I set my machine to 1.5 lb loaf, white bread cycle, medium crust. It looked perfect at about 5 minutes left on the timer, so I turned it off. I have a perfect loaf, soft and fluffy inside, flaky on the outside. I was worried it would get smashed when I sliced it but as long as you use a nice sharp bread knife, it'll be okay. So happy to have found this recipe!
