Tastes as good as the kind that you buy. One of my kiddos favorites. Very easy - just throw it all in the bread machine and turn it on.
- 1 cup warm water
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons powdered milk
- 3 teaspoons yeast
- 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 tablespoons butter or 4 tablespoons margarine
- 5 tablespoons white sugar
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons instant potato flakes
- 1⁄4 teaspoon lemon extract
- 2 eggs
- Measure ingredients into the bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer.
- I use the order listed in the recipe.
- Set the machine for medium crust, and press start.
- Makes 1 2 1/2 pound loaf.
- *Ilike to use the bread machine just to do the dough.
- Then I take the dough out and form a round loaf, let rise, then bake in the oven at 400 degrees.
This turned out great, could be a tad sweeter though. I left out the potato flakes (didn't have any) and substituted almond extract for lemon (didn't have lemon either). I would definitely make this again.
I can't even believe how close to the original this bread is. My entire family LOVES it. I've made it in the bread machine twice . . . the second time I had better luck by 3/4 the recipe (my machine holds 2 pound loafs and this is over 2 pounds as written). Also, I use orange juice instead of lemon extract and liquid milk - and reduce the water accordingly. I baked on light white setting, it will likely burn on sweet bread. I didn't make any change to the amount of flour used, it was just fine. Thank you SO much for the fantastic recipe!!
We love this bread! The 1st time I made it, I didn't pay attention to the 2-1/2 lb loaf, yea! what a mess, I thought it looked like a lot of yeast for 3c of flour but I haven't had this machine long, anyway it was great, as we were pulling pieces off the edges it reminded me of crescent rolls (flaky) I didn't use instant potatoes because I don't have that product but other than that I went by the recipe almost. lol I used buttermilk and added approx 1 tbls flour to sub for potatoes. I have a loaf cooling as we speak that I cooked in the oven on parchment paper and a pizza stone 400 for 21 min. OMG! I couldn't wait any longer, it is light, fluffy and delish! I would not add any extra flour to this recipe, the more flour, the heavier the bread, I had rather pour it out than dig it out. No it is not that sweet but I usually cut back on the sugar anyway and if you ask me it's better than what you buy. Thank you for sharing this bread with the world! God Bless You!
