It's been at least a year since I baked bread. All things considered, this one is not too shabby. I haven't had any granulated sugar in the house in a long time but I found some light brown sugar in the freezer. I think I will use it in the recipe from now on.
Plain White Bread
9 oz (300 ml) water
4 tablespoons non fat dry milk powder
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
3 cups bread flour
1 heaping teaspoon rapid rise yeast.
I'm lazy. I put everything into a bread machine and select the dough cycle. 90 minutes later I knead it a few times on a floured surface and put it into a loaf pan sprayed with Pam.
Proof it in the oven with just the light turned on until it rises properly (about an inch above the edge of the pan). Bake in a preheated 350° oven for about 30 minutes.
