Plain White Bread

READY IN: 1hr 7mins
Recipe by rhiamom

A simple white bread for the bread machine. It makes glorious toast and great sandwiches. It's one of the few homemade breads my Wonderbread-addicted husband will eat. You can use half milk and half water, or even all water if you don't have the milk. This bread is best baked on the rapid cycle.

We've used this recipe 20+ times, easily. It works very well, but we did change the setting to sandwich bread rather than rapid as it was a bit underdone. Otherwise we use it just as it is. It works well for pizza and calzones too!!
