Traditional White Bread Recipe

Yields15 Servings

This recipe is for a traditional white bread that you bake in the bread machine across the entire cycle. It makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf. It’s actually better than the bread you buy at the store and is both light and airy with a soft texture. One of the key things to watch is how well your batter is coming together. This can vary by bread machine, but if you’re batter appears to be too dry add a tablespoons of water, If it’s too wet add a tablespoon of flour. Don’t’ overdo it. Wait for the result you want is a solid and consistent dough ball that will then rise in the machine and give you a great loaf of white bread.
