Homemade Bread

Homemade Bread

So today since it is chilly out, I decided that I would post my favorite recipe for bread machine bread.  It comes out perfect every time.  It's the perfect thing to warm you up on a chilly day to go along with your favorite soup or alone with a little bit of butter on it. 

To make it you put in warm water, sugar, and yeast and let it proof for 10 minutes. Yes, I know this goes against the bread machine rules, but I wont tell if you don't:) Once proofed it will be all nice and bubbly and ready for the next ingredients.

Dump in the rest of the ingredients... Put into bread machine on the white bread setting and hit start...Be sure to check on the bread while it is in the kneading cycle to ensure it has enough liquid or enough flour.  It needs to have a slightly sticky texture.
