"A simple "everyday" bread that I make often. It is fluffy and light, makes very good toast. I use a 2 lb. Zojirushi ABM and a slightly different method than usually recommended. It works for me. The flour measurement is by weight - if you have no scale try 4 cups but a scale works best as cup measurements can vary quite a bit. "

Step 1

Put water in breadmaker. Add sugar, then yeast. Wait 2 minutes for yeast to begin to soften. Add flour, butter, salt, in that order.

Step 2

On the Zojirushi I select Basic, Light Crust, Preheat OFF. Press start. The top crust will be barely browned when finished and might collapse just a little. Flours vary a lot so you may find you wish to increase the amount slightly next time.

I made this bread to have for tomorrow with my Easter dinner. After trying a piece with butter rolling over the edge of the crust, I am having all I can do not to have another! I just might have myself a piece toasted for breakfast! It's so tender and the crust is perfect.

There just aren't enough stars for this recipe. If you are looking for a GREAT, not good, GREAT, everyday bread this is it. The texture is soft and light. My machine is a Breadman Ultimate Plus. I used the Light setting for the crust. Sweetie says it is the best bread ever to come out of the bread machine.
