This is pretty much a foolproof method for a wonderful white bread.

This bread is absolutely delicious! The first time I made it I forgot to choose a loaf size so my machine defaulted to 2 lbs. which resulted in dough that rose excessively and collapsed -- but it tasted awesome so I tried again on the 1.5 lbs. setting with better results. After that I tweaked the recipe a bit, using the oil to make it easier (I bake bread every other day or so) and decreased the yeast to 1.5 tsp. as I prefer a denser loaf. I process the ingredients in the bread loaf until the dough is kneaded the final time then let it rise in a greased bread pan and finally bake it at 350° for 31 minutes. After baking, I let the bread cool for half an hour or so then place close it in a bag to soften the crust for easier slicing.
Another masterpiece from the master chef. Made exactly as directed and turned out exactly as expected. Beautiful and delicious! Thanks, Kitten, for another great one. :] Made again and it rose so high it pushed the top of my bread machine open. Best bread machine recipe I have ever made. :]
Gosh Kitt, this recipe was wonderful! I used dough cycle, put in greased loaf pan, let rise again and baked in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. It produced a very high loaf. It was a perfect texture for sandwiches which is was I needed it for. 10 stars if I could. It was easy, quick, tasted wonderful and was just beautiful!
