  1. Whenever you are using a bread recipe, use the settings that are specific to your particular bread machine.
  2. To begin, you should make sure that your cooking area and all of the utensils you will be using are clean. Have a cooling rack and thermometer handy.
  3. First, you want to add the water and butter to your bread pan. Then, add all of the dry ingredients, minus the yeast, to the pan. Settle the dry ingredients and make sure they are level. Try to get the mixture to reach the corners of the pan. Sprinkle the yeast over the dry ingredients, keeping it dry and away from the water. Close the bread machine, locking the pan into the bread maker.
  4. Program the bread machine by selecting your desired loaf size, crust color and bread type. The bread machine will mix, knead, rise and bake the bread. When the baking cycle is complete, remove bread and place on the cooling rack that you have nearby.
  5. *The 2 pound version of this recipe yields 16 serving*

    Just made this recipe and the taste was really delicious. I might have put too much yeast in though because I made a 1.5 pound loaf and it got too big for my machine and made a mess. But the medium crust on this bread was wonderful and I loved the texture of it too. Great with some garlic and butter.

    Hi. Just wonder if you melt the butter before adding? Thanks!
