Ingredients for White Breakfast Bread:
1 1/4 C. water 105-115 degrees F.
1 1/2 t. kosher salt
1 1/2 T. room temperature butter
2 T. sugar
1 1/2 T. nonfat dried milk
3 3/4 C. King Arthur unbleached all purpose flour
1 1/2 t. instant yeast
Remove the bread pan from your bread machine insert the mixing paddles correctly. Add the warm water and butter. Using a piece of waxed paper or a bowl assemble the salt, sugar, dried milk, and flour then add to the top of the liquid without mixing.
|Just make a shallow trough with a spoon.|
Set the machine to the dough cycle and start. I usually check about 5-7 minutes into the kneading cycle to be sure all is well. Because in the variation of the flour due to humidity you could add a sprinkle of water or a tablespoon of flour now if an adjustment is needed.
Upon the dough cycle completing remove the dough to a very well buttered loaf pan and slather the top of the loaf with soft butter. Cover and let rise in a warm place until the loaf has doubled, about 1 hour.
|Beauty is a freshly made loaf of yeast bread.|
|Slice with a bread knife or an electric knife will do nicely also.|
Note: Lately I have been using the dough cycle of the bread machine a lot. I am thinking about being so far behind in things I am trying to get done and this saves me a lot of time although I enjoy making bread by hand very much. I am a big fan of both!
