Bread Machine Basic White Bread

Did you know that you can pick up bread machines really cheap at almost any thrift shop? They are also found in yard sales.

No matter what brand of bread machine I use, I always use this recipe for a two-pound loaf. ***Tip – Buy your yeast in bulk to make your bread cost-effective. Just go up to the bakery in your local grocery store and ask the bakers for some bulk yeast.

This recipe is from my Sunbeam Expressbake cookbook (tweaked by me):

2 Pound White Bread Loaf

  • 1 and 1/3 cups hot tap water
  • 4 tsp stick butter
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 c. regular flour
  • 4 tsp. dry milk
  • 2 Tbs. sugar
  • 2 tsp. yeast
Put the butter in first then add the hot water. Add the rest in order the set to bake. All the kids I know prefer the lightest color crust, but choose to your own taste.
