1 cup warm water
2 TBS sugar
2 1/4 tsp bread machine yeast
1/4 cup veg oil
3 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
Add water, sugar, and yeast. Allow to proof 10 minutes until foamy. Then add oil, flour, and salt. Select your basic setting and press start! Mine takes about 3 hours from start to finish. Many times I will set after lunch and run errands. By the time the kids are home from school it is near the end of it's cooking and we have fresh bread with our dinner!
I like to add 2 tsp of garlic, & 2 tsp parsley for an Italian Bread to serve with pasta's
By the way, I was one of those people who thought a bread machine was a complete waste of money and space... HA! Thanks to my in-laws for picking up extra's at yard sales and giving me one! I am so hooked now!
