My Favorite Bread Machine Bread

This is my very favorite white bread recipe for the bread machine. Why? Because not only is it delicious, it turns out the same every single time! No surprises, just the perfect loaf of bread each time. This bread hold up really well, so it's great for slicing thin for sandwiches and toast. I hardly ever buy bread anymore because this is easy to make and easy on the wallet.

Basic Bread Machine White Bread

1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 (.25 oz) package bread machine yeast (or 2 1/4 teaspoons)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 cups bread flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt

Place water, sugar, and yeast in bread machine pan. Let it sit and dissolve for 10 minutes, until foamy. Add oil, flour, and salt. Select white bread (or basic) setting on your bread machine and start.

This makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf, so adjust your machine's settings if needed.

Happy Eating!
