I got this wonderful bread recipe on the Internet about a year ago, and I have made it exclusively ever since. It makes the best toast ever! I make the dough in my bread machine, then take it out and shape it into a Pyrex loaf pan to rise again and bake in the oven. It turns out perfect every time.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Add the ingredients to your bread machine pan according to your machine's instructions.
  2. Set to the dough cycle.
  3. When it is ready, take out the dough, shape into a loaf.
  4. This dough is very easy to handle.
  5. Place in a lightly greased or sprayed 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 loaf pan.
  6. Do not use a too large pan or your loaf will not turn out right.
  7. Cover and let rise about a half hour.
  8. Bake about 30 minutes at 350º or until nicely browned.

Very good bread. I made this by hand and accidentally added a full cup of oats. I also used 3 cups of King Arthur White Whole Wheat flour instead of half and half. I had to knead this for about 20 minutes (and it still could have stood a little longer but I was tired). It rose up nicely and baked into a beautiful, oatmeal-studded loaf. It is surprisingly moist. Thanks so much! **update - I meant to mention this last time - I don't have a bread machine, so I have to knead this by hand. It is VERY sticky. I probably add an additional cup of flour while I'm kneading - otherwise it gets stuck all over my hands and I have to scrape it off. Next time I will go ahead and add another 3/4 cup of flour before I start kneading and see how it goes.

This made a delicious loaf! I made this without a machine and changed a couple of things: I used about a tablespoon of honey instead of the sugar, used granary flour for the whole wheat and omitted the powdered milk. I've got a second loaf rising now it was so good! Thanks.
