The original recipe was in a booklet that came with my Oster ABM and it is delightful, although I changed it just a tad. Make sure all ingredients are room temperature.
- 1 3⁄8 cups water
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons dry buttermilk
- 1 3⁄4 teaspoons salt
- 4 cups bread flour (unbleached)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 1⁄4 teaspoons yeast
- Add ingredients in the order that your bread machine instructs.
- Choose light or medium crust and basic setting.
- At the end of the 3-hour cycle when the bread is finished baking, remove and let cool for 15 minutes.
Very nice flavor, and tender soft crumb ~ This made a HUGE loaf that I had to force into my bread bag ~ it could easily be made into two loaves! I made this with 3 cups bread flour, and 1 cup whole wheat flour, and added 1 teaspoon vital wheat gluten. I mixed on the dough cycle and baked in my oven at 350F for 45 minutes ~ Tagged under the 24-hr rule, Photo Tag December 2012.
So good! I let the breadmaker do the kneading and first rise, and for the second rise I put the dough in a 9x5" pan, baked at 350 for half an hour. Also, I used honey instead of sugar and used 1/3 whole wheat flour. Thanks for posting!
I cut the recipe in half and the bread caved in at the end of baking. Most times it's my fault and not the recipe's. ~Tasty~ and I liked this straight out of the ABM with a spread of creamed honey. Buttermilk powder comes in handy for these type of bread recipes. Now I have bread on hand for snacks, to make crumbs, croutons, etc. Reviewed for Adopt a Veggie Tag.
