So, after making several bread loaves and experimenting with recipes, I found this to be the BEST recipe yet. This makes an awesome loaf - flaky, slightly crispy crust, and soft inside. Great taste, and makes awesome sandwiches and toast.
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 (.25 ounce) package bread machine yeast
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
|1.||Place the water, sugar and yeast in the pan of the bread machine. Let the yeast dissolve and foam for 10 minutes. Add the oil, flour and salt to the yeast. Select Basic or White Bread setting, and press Start.|
Also, the recipe calls for bread flour, but I've used all purpose flour as well and it comes out good either way.
It doesn't get much easier! 3.5 hours later, you have an awesome loaf of bread that tastes better than store-bought.
