white bread machine recipe

Wet Stuff
 1 ⅓ cups Water
Fats/Semi Wet
 2 ½ tbsp Butter
Dry Stuff
 4 ¼ cups Bread Flour
 4 tbsp Sugar
 2 tsp Salt
 2 ½ tsp Dry Yeast
1

Setup your bread machine and add all ingredients into the bread pan starting with liquids, then fats, then dry ingredients. Be sure to dig a little hole into the middle of your flour mound and pour the yeast into it as it helps activate the yeast during the initial rest.

2

Bake the bread using the basic/regular bread method. Alternatively, if you're using instant yeast, you can use the quick method if your machine has that feature.

3

Once finished, remove the loaf from the bread pan and allow to cool for at least ~20 minutes before slicing. Enjoy as thick cut french toast or basic sandwich bread!
