Found this recipe on the internet several years ago, now we never buy bread mixes, because this is so easy, so cheap, and WAY delicious!
Fill your bread machine’s bread pan with hot water to preheat and set aside. Meanwhile, in a glass measuring cup add:
- 1 1/4 cups 2% milk
- 2 tablespoons unsalted real dairy butter
Heat in the microwave on high for 30 seconds, stir, then back into the microwave for 30 more seconds. Set aside while you prepare the dry ingredients.
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
Dump out the water from the bread pan and dry, don’t forget to insert the mixing blade in the bread pan. Pour the warm milk/butter mixture into the bread pan. Next, pour the flour mixture onto the bread pan and tap pan to level.
Make a small hole in the flour mixture, and add to the hole:
- 1 packet highly active dry yeast
Place filled bread pan into the bread machine and select ‘Basic White’ setting and start. Makes a delicious loaf of homemade bread.
using the ‘delay’ setting is not recommended due to the dairy products in the recipe.
