Don't get me wrong, I love white bread and all-purpose flour, but whole wheat is healthier. Sometimes, though, you may really want some good old fashioned soft, fluffy white bread. Especially homemade. Toasted homemade white bread with a schmear of butta....mmmm mmm good.
White Bread I - quick & easy in the bread machine with basic ingredients.
- 1 1/4 cups lukewarm milk
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer.
- Select Basic or White Bread setting, and press Start. When done, place on wire rack for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
It was very good! Nice flaky crust, soft, fluffy inside...I don't think this loaf lasted 24 hours. I'm sure this can be made without a bread machine too. Just, you know, don't ask me how. I know this isn't anything fancy, or full of whole grains or different ingredients, but sometimes....sometimes it's good just to get back to basics :)
