|It smells as good as it looks!|
The dough is beautiful and I am confident the BL T's or PB J's or grilled cheese or hot dogs, which ever they choose will be all the better with fresh baked bread.
This recipe comes from the manufacturer of my original bread maker, Toastmaster Corner Bakery Cook Book. (Yes, I have done some adapting.) All of their bread recipes I have found to be especially good. I haven't used the bread machine a lot so far this summer. I love to use it in the dough cycle on busy days then bake a round or oval loaf on a baking stone after removing it from the mixing pan and letting it rise. My new machine is a Zojirushi and does a great job too. I just prefer not baking in the machine some days.
1 1/2 C. buttermilk heated to 80 degrees F
1/4 C. olive oil
1/4 C. sugar
2 t. kosher salt
1/2 t. baking soda
4 1/2 C. bread flour (I like King Arthur Organic.)
1 3/4 t. instant yeast
Place all of the ingredients into the pan of the bread machine in the order given but make a shallow trench atop the flour the length of the pan with a teaspoon for the yeast. Then sprinkle the yeast into the trench. Be mindful to keep the yeast dry at this point.
