Yet another Basic Bread Recipe

I feel like I can never have too many options for baking bread. Lately I've made at least one loaf a week, sometimes two. Home made bread makes my toast and sandwiches so much better than factory-produced loaves. Since I use a bread machine, I can accomplish this task even when I'm having a difficult day with fatigue or headaches. Just throw in the wet ingredients, then the dry, topped by the yeast. Here's my new one that (sort of, you know me) came with the new bread maker.

Daisy's Basic Everyday Delicious Bread
adapted from the recipe that came with my Sunbeam 5891

For a 1.5 pound loaf, add ingredients to bread machine in this order.
1 cup + 2 Tablespoons water, 75-85 degrees F. (1 minute in the microwave does the trick)
1 Tablespoon butter or margarine or olive oil (I've tried all three; they work exactly the same)
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon non-fat dry milk powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups bread flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 Tablespoon whole wheat gluten
2 1/2 bread machine yeast

Set bread machine for white course, light crust, and 1 1/2 lb. loaf. Enjoy! Your house will smell wonderful.
