Description

I adapted the bread my mother made everyday of my childhood into a bread machine recipe. Just an old-fashioned recipe, with basic ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Shortening, Butter, Or Lard
  • 1-½ cup Hot Water
  • 4 cups White Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Yeast, Or 1 Packet

Preparation

Add the ingredients to the loaf pan in the order listed. Select 2# loaf, your desired darkness, White or Basic setting. Different bread machines take different times to complete. Mine takes 3 hours, 55 minutes; my friend’s takes 2 hours, 20 minutes.

You can set to dough setting then bring the dough out to make dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, or whatever you would like to use dough for. A very versatile and easy recipe!

Just made this and the house smells wonderful! Waiting for the boys to get home from school to try it! If I don’t slice a “heel” piece before then!

This bread is wonderful! I baked it on the 1hour cycle, just to see how it would do, and it came out perfectly.

My family absolutely loves this bread! It makes a beautiful dough in the bread maker; perfect consistency (note: I needed to add a couple extra tbsp. of the hot water to help in initial kneading). This bread is perfect as toast or as a dipping bread for soups, etc., a very nice texture and taste. Thanks for the great recipe!

Pretty good! Mine came out a little heavy, but my husband LOVED the flavor, and I loved the simplicity. Thanks for sharing.
