Basic Sandwich Bread

Submitted by: KRAVMAGAGIRL

Introduction

This is an easy, healthy, and cheap alternative to store-bought bread. It's not heavy and it has a fine grain instead of the large grain of most home-made breads.

Ingredients

    1 tbs honey
    2 tsp yeast
    1 cup warm milk (any %, I use 2)
    1 tbs unsalted butter (or olive oil)
    2 tsp salt
    4 cups unbleached bread flour

Directions

Put the warm milk, yeast and honey in the bread machine pan. Then get all the rest of your ingredients together while the milk mixture and yeast hang out together for a few minites. put the rest of the ingredients in and set to a 2lb loaf size. Begin to knead. now to get really FLUFFY bread it all about the texture. I have found that to not get the big holes of a rustic loaf, but instead get a soft loaf with a tight crumb your dough needs to be on the dryer side. As it is mixing note the texture. it should hold together as a doughball, but should feel dryish to the touch. when you touch it your finger should not have a peice of dough stuck on it when you pull back. so as it is mixing add a little warm water or more flour to get this texture just right. its tricky and make take some trial and error before you get it just right.

when the mixing cycle is done, leave in in the bread machine pan to rise for an hour. After an hour, remove the dough from the bread pan (and thus degassing it a bit) and shape into a loaf. put into a well greased loaf pan. Cover and let rise another hour or so. it should rise well over the top of the pan. if not, let it rise a bit more.

preheat a 375 degree oven. when its done rising put it in. i usually bake it for approx 35 minites. could be less or more. just peek at it if you can. when its golden brown and hollow sounding its done.

take out of the pan to cool the loaf. the crust will soften after it cools.

Not sure how many slices you get out of it... sorry!
