|This loaf is sweet and fragrant and has a lovely "chew" and texture.|
1 C. Scalded 2 % or whole milk
1 large egg (from local farmer if possible)
2 T. butter
1/2 C. vanilla sugar ( just add a tiny drop of vanilla if you do not have this made up)
3/4 t. kosher salt
3 C. King Arthur Organic All Purpose Flour or Bread Flour
4 t. Laura Brody's bread dough enhancer or powdered gluten
1 scant T. instant yeast
Add the ingredients as your bread machine maker suggests and set the machine on the dough cycle.
Upon completion of the cycle remove and shape to a loaf of your choosing. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F for at least 10 minutes. I use a baking stone for round loaves so I put it into the oven when I set it to preheat. When the loaf has been shaped I set it upon parchment paper spread across a peel or cookie sheet. Sprinkle the paper with a bit of corn meal or flour place the loaf then cover it for the rise of 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
