Description

I’ve had so much trouble finding a bread machine recipe that works consistently at my altitude of 4300 ft., very dry climate. It’s been hit and miss for the past 20 years. I finally made it my mission and using good ol’ R2D2, otherwise known as a WelBilt AB100, bought from Costco over 20 years ago I’ve done it. Again and again, just good, plain white bread, soft inside and crusty outside.

Ingredients

  • 1-¼ teaspoon Yeast - Quick Rise
  • ¼ cups Nonfat Dry Milk
  • 3 cups Flour, All Purpose
  • 1-⅛ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar Plus 2 1/2 Teaspoons More
  • 1 whole Egg
  • ¼ cups Butter, Softened
  • 1 cup Water (minus 2 Tablespoons) Warmed To 90 Degrees
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice

Preparation

I’ve listed the ingredients as per instructions for the Welbilt AB100 machine, largest loaf.

Place all ingredients into your bread machine in the order that the manufacturer of your bread machine specifies. Set on the White Bread setting. Let the machine do the rest. Had it tonight with chili … so good!

I am just curious what adjustments you would make in order to convert this to a Whole Wheat Bread Recipe? The Basic White bread is delicious, and is the recipe I have tried thus far that doesn’t fall, and I would love to have a wheat bread version! Thanks in advance :-)

Wow! I live at 7000 ft and struggle with breads. This recipe is perfect. I also have an ancient Welbilt. My grandfather gave it to me in 1995ish. He had used it for years before that. I am so incredibly impressed with this recipe. Thank you! It rose and came out amazing. I’m still a little shocked at how good it was, considering how difficult it is to make breads here.

Awesome bread with good flavor. I mixed it in the bread machine, let it rise for a couple of hours, then baked it at 350 for 55 minutes. Came out wonderful and a nice toasty brown. Thank you for the wonderful recipe. I’ve been searching for so long for a good one.

I made this yesterday and it turned out really well! I have tried making several different bread recipes at high altitude (6800) in the bread machine and they all end up falling. This was the first one that didn’t fall, thank you so much! I’m wondering if you have any other recipes for the bread machine for high altitude? I may play around with a partial wheat version of this…unless you already have one that you’d be willing to share? :) thanks again!
