DELICIOUS! This is a lovely basic bread recipe with simple ingredients! The trick to perfect bread with the bread machine is to always check the dough during the early stages. When kneading, if it looks dry, just add a few drops of water...too wet, some flour. If it's a nice smooth ball, it's perfect. The only changes I made were to substitute honey for the sugar and to add a tablespoon of vital wheat gluten for a higher rising loaf. Next time I'll try making sandwich buns. Thanks for a terrific simple recipe!
Made this bread three times my family loves it. The only things I did different was add 3 tablespoons more water because I found the dough a little dry, and I baked it in the oven.
