Until I found this recipe my bread didn't turn out very well. Now, I make it nearly everyday. It makes a great sandwich, too. The only problem is that it doesn't last long enough around here!! I finally LOVE my bread machine. You can also make it on the dough cycle and then take it out and shape into rolls.

How to Make Country White Bread for 2 lb. Machine

Step-by-Step

  1. Put ingredients in bread machine pan in the order listed. Set the machine for white bread, crust to your preference. Turn it on! In about 3 hours you have a wonderful HUGE loaf of homemade white bread. Perfect texture to use as sandwich bread, too. I love it warm, either from the machine or stick a slice into the microwave, with butter. YUMMY.
  2. If you haven't been able to quite get it right before, you will with this recipe. A tip is to watch it while it mixes. The dough should wind up barely sticky, it should go around in the pan sticking occasionally. Add flour slowly if it sticks to sides and doesn't go around in the pan. It shouldn't be so dry that it just goes around in circles though.
