Yield: 20 Servings
|1½ teaspoon||Active dry yeast|
|2¼ cup||Bread flour; divided|
|1 tablespoon||Nonfat dry milk powder|
|2 tablespoons||Powdered whey; optional|
|1 tablespoon||Butter; margarine or|
|¾ cup||Warm water|
Place ingredients in ABM in order given (or reverse if necessary so liquids are added first). I put the egg in the bottom of a measuring cup and add warm water to equal ¾ cup. I add more water, if necessary, by tablespoon as the machine starts to mix. Set machine for Normal or Manual setting. I confess that since this is used primarily for sandwiches and my machine makes round loaves, I generally use the Manual setting. To do this, take the dough from the machine when it beeps and quickly form into a log shape.
This goes into a large loaf pan covered with a towel and doubles in size in about 45-60 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool on rack.
This makes excellent plain bread for sandwiches. I vary the recipe by substituting whole wheat flour for up to 1 cup of the bread flour and have also tried using oat flour or finely ground oatmeal in place of ½ cup of bread flour. ¼ cup of wheat germ in lieu of same amount bread flour is another additive that works well.
