Fantastic bread. I recommend using the normal loaf recipe in your bread machine the first time. This rises a lot. I use the normal recipe, machine menu: white, normal (not rapid rise), 1.5 loaf with medium crust. The baked loaf came to the top of the inside of the machine. I will make this often.
This is exactly the recipe I have from "The Bread Machine Cookbook" by Donna Rathmell German (p. 131). It is a good tasting bread that is not too sweet, and so is fine for sandwiches as well as with dinner or as toast for breakfast. This loaf rises very high, so you might want to make a size smaller than you usually do.
Made the medium loaf, got rave reviews from DH and DS. Followed the recipe exactly used the dough cycle on my ABM and baked about 40min @375. Will make often....thanks for posting
Thank you, Mimi! I went to college in Maine a decade ago, and they served anadama bread in the dining hall. I used your exact recipe in the bread machine to make the large dough, but split and baked in the oven 375 for 45 min. Yum!
