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. Bake in a preheated 350° oven for about 30 minutes.
