How to Make a Great Loaf of White Bread
Bread is one of the oldest recipes in the world, so you don't have to be a chef to make it in your home. By using a bread maker, baking your own loaf is a true no-brainer.
Start off by combining these ingredients in your bread maker's baking pan:

After your liquid ingredients are added, keep your bread pan and add these dry ingredients:
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons dry milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3 cups bread flour
Once your dry ingredients are added, make a small hole in the pile of flour that doesn't touch the liquid ingredients. Pour in exactly 2 teaspoons of active yeast into this flour well without hitting the water or butter. Place your bread pan into the bread maker and shut its lid.
Now all you have to do is use the display to pick your desired crust color and hit START. You'll have a fresh loaf in no time for a tasty snack or your kids' lunches.
