There's nothing like a loaf of fresh-baked bread on a cold day. This is one of our favorites.
1 1/2 cups water
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine (softened)
2 teaspoons salt
4 cups bread flour
4 teaspoons sugar
1/2 cup instant potato flakes
2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1- Measure and add liquid ingredients to the bread pan.
2- Measure and add dry ingredients (except yeast) to the bread pan.
3- Use your finger to form a well (hole) in the flour where you will pour the yeast. Yeast must NEVER come into contact with a liquid when you are adding ingredients. Measure the yeast and carefully pour it into the well.
4- Snap the baking pan into the breadmaker and close the lid.
5- Select the Basic setting.
6- Select the desired crust color. (We like it Light)
7- Press the Start button.
Makes a 2 lb loaf.
