When the recipe that came with the bread maker didn’t work out how I wanted I played around until I came up with this one that always creates a soft and tasty loaf of bread.
Altered ingredient amounts. This was the best bread that ever came out of my bread machine yet. On my 2nd loaf, however, I made a few changes: I used 3 Tablespoons sugar and reduced the yeast to 2 teaspoons instead of the 2 1/4 teaspoon measurement that is in the 1 sachet that it calls for. This reduced the rising just enough so that the slices near the top of the loaf weren't as "airy" thus, held up better during slicing. The result was a lovely, soft, very light bread with a flaky crust, perfect for sandwiches! This recipe has become a favourite! - 08 Oct 2008
