I think the bread machine is such a great invention!
This is the recipe I use for a 1 ½ lb. plain white loaf.
You will need:
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 ¼ tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 cup warm water
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 yeast packet or 2 ¼ tsp. (I use bread machine yeast)
Mix the flour, salt, and sugar together.
Put in the oil and water first, the flour mixture second, and the yeast last.
I set my bread machine on basic light, and it runs for 3hrs. 20min.
Our usual Sunday meal is a roast in the crock pot with carrots, potatoes, and onions. That smells great when we walk in the door from church, but when you add in the aroma of fresh-baked bread, oh my goodness, it is wonderful!
Have a great weekend, everyone! :)
