White bread is the traditional classic that many of us make the first time we use our bread machine. This recipe revisits a white bread recipe only this time we’re going to us the delayed cycle to bake it. On most bread machines you can delay the start by up to 13 hours. You have to remember to build in the cycle time as well. If you want your bread to be done at 6 in the morning and you turn in at night at 10 you have to remember that the white bread cycle is typically three and a half hours.
That means you should delay the start by four and a half hours if you want the loaf done at 6.

It’s also important to remember that dairy products in any delayed-cycle bread recipe can present a problem. This includes milk, eggs, cheese, and buttermilk. They simply don’t survive a long-duration in the bread pan and can cause bacterial growth or turn rancid.

On the other hand, butter can maintain its integrity over 13 hours, but it’s the exception.

One other note: make sure the yeast is separated from the water with a barrier of flour. Once the yeast comes into contact with any liquid it becomes active and if left to sit for hours can actually expire resulting in little or no rising of the loaf. There is a built-in heating cycle in the delayed cycle that will warm the ingredients during kneading to ensure a good rise.

INGREDIENTS:
 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of water
 3 cups of bread flour
 1/4 cup of dry buttermilk (optional)
 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
 1 tablespoon of sugar
 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
 2 tablespoons of butter
 1 tablespoon of caraway seeds (optional)
 1 tablespoon of bread machine yeast or active dry yeast
DIRECTIONS:
1

Add all of the ingredients to the bread pan in the order indicated in the ingredient list and select a delayed cycle for the white bread course.

2

Select 1.5-pound loaf and medium crust setting.

3

Take note of the white bread cycle time for your bread machine and build this into your calculations for setting the delayed cycle. Typically it’s 3.5 hours.
