So you want to make bread in your bread machine. How original.

What you need

  • A bread machine
  • 21.5 oz bread flour (roughly 5 cups but seriously weigh it)
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil or melted butter
  • 2 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp powdered nonfat dry milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

Trying to be “Healthy”?

  • You can mix white and whole wheat flour to taste, though a 2:1 ratio white to wheat is as much wheat as I would use.

Do this

  • Dump all the ingredients into the bread machine
  • Make sure to keep the salt somewhat separate from the yeast. Salt kills yeast.
  • Use the 2.5 lb basic bread setting, medium crust
  • If your machine has a mode to beep when you can remove the blades, use it!
  • Remove the baked loaf from the machine as soon as possible
  • Let cool on a rack for as long as you can stand it, with that fresh baked bread smell permeating your house
