Bread Machine: White Bread Recipe

For those who don't know me I am an avid DI shopper (goodwill, salvation army, etc). I love finding a good deal and totally love it when I leave the store with something I know I have been searching for, but could never afford at regular store prices. Well a few months ago I found a bread maker for $7.00 Are you so surprised? I sure was. My hubby and I found it and brought that beautiful baby home. It is a Regal brand Breadmaker. I am not sure if that makes a difference. It is my new best friend and I love it! Once home, I immediately called my sisinlaw Holly and copied some of her favorite bread machine recipes. One of them was for white bread and oh man is it yummy! It makes a 1lb. loaf and if you have never had homemade bread before please go make some. I swear it will change your world. A bread machine makes it super simple. Just pour the ingredients into your machine, hit start, and go on with your day. In 3 hours you will have a house smelling of homebaked goodness and some yummy bread to eat with your loved ones. Here is the recipe for a Basic White Bread 1 lb Loaf. Enjoy and Happy Baking!

** Add wet ingredients first & then dry on top. The yeast goes on the very top**

3/4 cups of tap water + 1 tsp of water
1 tbl oil (I use canola, but vegetable will work also)
1 tbl molasses (optional)
1tsp salt
1 1/2 tbl white sugar
1 tbl dried milk powder (can also use real milk)
2 1/4 cups of flour
2 1/2 tbl of gluten powder (optional)
1 1/3 tsp yeast

put all ingredients in your bread maker in this order. Put it on the basic bread setting and press start. I try to check on mine after like 10 minutes and see how my dough is looking. If it looks a little wet I add a tbl of flour, if it looks a little dry I add a tbl of water. (this all depends on if you use molasses or gluten).

Hope you guys have a chance to try out this yummy bread recipe!

My hubby and I love our bread fresh and hot with some Nutella spread on it. So Yummy!
