1 ½ - Pound Loaf
¼ cups water (80ºF)
Place ingredients in bread machine pan in the order suggested by the manufacturer. Recommended cycle: BASIC/WHITE BREAD cycle; medium crust color. It is all right to open the machine and touch the dough to check its consistency. Do this 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 flour 1 tablespoon at a time until right dough consistency is reached. Remove bread from pan and cool on wire rack.
From the contestant - "I make this bread when I know the grandchildren are coming. We have to have bread and jelly. If any is left, it's used for toast for Grandpa and me the next morning."
