READY IN: 3hrs 30mins




  • Place all ingredients in the bread machine pan in the order the manufacturer requires. Select Basic cycle, Light crust –OR- do the following.
  • Select Basic cycle and leave dough in the machine through the FIRST RISE.
  • When it's time for the SECOND RISE, turn off the machine, pull out the dough, and roll tightly into a loaf, making sure to pinch the seams closed. Place in a greased 9x5 loaf pan seam side down and spray dough with cooking spray. Let rise in a warm place for one hour or more (rising times will vary). When dough has doubled to at least one inch above the pan’s rim, you have the option of applying an egg wash for a shiny finish. Beat an egg and use a pastry brush to apply a thin film on top of loaf.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 deg. F. and then bake loaf for 25-30 minutes, or until thermometer inserted in side of loaf registers at least 195 deg. F.
