Machine Runner Up
for 1 ½-pound loaf
Accurately measure all ingredients. For flour, first stir it, then spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off.
Add ingredients to bread machine pan in the order suggested in the instructional manual. Recommended cycle: BASIC/WHITE, medium setting.
It is all right to open the machine and touch the dough to check its consistency. Do this after about 5 minutes into the KNEAD cycle. The dough should form a soft ball around the kneading blade. If it is too dry, add liquid ½ to 1 tablespoon at a time; if it is too wet, add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time.
For a lighter crust color, remove the bread 3 to 4 minutes before the baking cycle is completed. Makes one 1 ½-pound loaf.
