Old-Fashioned Buttermilk White Bread


This is seriously the yummiest bread ever! This is our go-to bread during the week. Last Thursday I was particularly in a baking bread kind of mood. I baked 2 loaves, which was good thing. We had company over and we all gobbled up one of the loaves. Since my family loves this recipe so much, I thought I would share with all my friends. This is a bread machine recipe, which of course is always the easiest and yummiest.

Here Is What You Need:

1/3 cup Water
1 cup buttermilk
2 tbl of butter or vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
4 tbl brown sugar
3 cups flour
2 1/4 tsp yeast
4 tbl gluten (optional)

Here Is What You Do:

Put all ingredients in your bread machine, according to your manufacturers settings. Mine go in the exact order listed above.

Select dough setting. Mine takes about 1 hr 30mins

Once your dough cycle is finished, punch down the dough and place it in a greased loaf pan. I like to use Pam. I spray it all over the loaf pan, place in my bread dough and then spray the top with more Pam. I then put plastic wrap over the top and wait for it to rise. It should rise up and above the edges of the pan.

Once doubled in size, bake at 350' for 30 minutes or until lightly brown on top.

Take out of the oven and immediately rub a cold stick of butter over the top.
I do enough, so that my bread has a light coating of butter on top.

Let cool a few minutes and then remove from pan and onto a plate, 
where it will completely cool.

This bread is so yummy warm with butter and jelly, or for sandwiches, etc. You will not be sorry when you make this. It is Divine

* Make your own buttermilk by adding 1 tbl vinegar or lemon juice to milk. Let sit for 5 minutes. The vinegar/lemon juice will cause the milk to turn into buttermilk. Easy peasy!
