Bread Machine White Bread
We all love a fresh slice of buttery bread hot from the oven, right? However, we don’t always have the time to baby the dough all day, which is why I love using my bread machine. It’s really as simple as throwing all of the ingredients into the machine, closing the lid and hitting a button.
It really is quite amazing that you can have soft and fluffy homemade bread with such little effort. The only hard part is remembering to get all of the ingredients into the bread machine early enough, so that your bread is ready at the appropriate time.
Once you see how easy it is to make homemade bread this way, you may want to make this a weekly ritual. Also, if you can’t afford a new bread machine, you may have luck finding them at a local thrift store. They are usually pretty abundant and cost a small fraction of the full price, so why not take a chance one one of them?

Tips for Making Bread in a Bread Machine:
- Check the temperature of the warm water on your wrist and make sure that it is warm, but not hot. You want it to be approximately 110 F.
- Be sure to add the ingredients into the bread pan in the order listed on the recipe.
- Once the cycle has begun and the dough has formed, you can check it to make sure that the dough is the right consistency. If it seems a bit dry, you can add 1 tbsp of water, if it seems a bit wet, you can add 1 tbsp of flour.
- Be sure to allow your bread to cool before slicing. This will help you to make nice even slices. You also want to make sure that you are using a serrated bread knife.
- You can store your leftover bread in an airtight container or ziplock bag for 3-5 days.
