Bread Machine Butter Bread

    3 hours 40 minutes

    Based on a recipe for Swiss Butterzopf (Butter Bread), but made in a breadmaker. Though not plaited like the original, it still tastes good with butter and jam. This recipe needs to use real butter - not margarine or a blend.

    This was easy and super yummy Thank you for sharing.  -  15 Aug 2010


    Easy peasy, and so tasty! The texture is soft, even after 2 days, probably due to the butter. Will try a 2nd time soon, and may add more sugar and a little more butter to make this into a sweet loaf.  -  27 May 2009
