This is a minor adaption of a recipe from Lora Brody's "Bread Machine Baking: Perfect Every Time". It is my husband's favorite white bread. A very light loaf. For a 1.5 lb machine.
- 3 cups unbleached white flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 10 teaspoons pure maple syrup (this is 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon)
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons yeast
- Place all ingredients in machine according to the manufacturer's directions (for example, in my machine you put in dry ingredients first, then wet on top, and put the yeast in a special dispenser). Please note that you may need to bring the buttermilk to room temperature or warm it slightly depending on how your machine works.
- Program for basic or white bread and press Start.
I'm sorry, I couldn't tell that this was a maple syrup bread at all. I admit, part of it may have been my own fault. I used the dough cycle, and tried to make sandwich rolls with this dough. Once they were baked, they tasted dense and chewy, and kind of bland. This may just be a recipe that doesn't translate easily to oven baking, and is best suited to leaving in the machine. Thank you for posting, made for ZWT4.
This was so very good! I like the sweetness the maple syrup gives to the bread. And it's very soft and fluffy!!!
