Don't think boring here. There are millions of white bread recipes; this one is different. It has a light texture, but is sturdy enough to hold up well with toasting. The addition of butter and milk provide an old-fashioned flavor that's enhanced by toasting.
One (1 1/2-pound) Loaf
1 1/4 cups (10 ounces) water
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 tablespoons (3/4 ounce) butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons Baker's Special Dry Milk or nonfat dried milk
3 3/4 cups (15 3/4 ounces) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
Place all of the ingredients into the pan of your bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Program for white or basic bread, light setting, and press Start. Check the dough's consistency about 7 minutes after the kneading cycle begins, adding additional water or flour to form a smooth, soft ball of dough. Allow the machine to complete its cycle. Remove the bread when it's done, and let cool completely before slicing. Yield: 1 loaf.
