Total Time
Prep 1 hr 30 mins

  1. Put milk in bread machine, followed by salt, sugar, butter, flour, yeast.
  2. My preference is to process on the dough setting until dough is ready and take out and bake as a normal loaf.
  3. If not follow the instructions on your bread machine for a 1 1/2 lb loaf.

I just got a bread machine and this was the first loaf I made. I chose this recipe because it uses milk rather than dried milk powder. It made a lovely big fluffy loaf. I was so proud of it!! Thanks for posting it!

A simple recipe to follow, and a wonderful fluffy white bread in the morning. I think next time I will add one more teaspoon of yeast. I like my bread very fluffy, and I will set my breadmaker on the medium crust, instead of light. The crust ended up light in colour (as expected) I would like it a more golden brown colour. But that again is a personal preference. Great bread for toast

Perfect. I stopped the bread machine after the first rise and then split the dough between two loaf pans. I let that rise for about 35 minutes and then baked in a 375 degre oven for about 35 minutes.
