About this recipe:This bread machine recipe is based on the classic recipe for Butterzopf, or Butter Bread, from Switzerland. Though not plaited like the original, it still tastes gorgeous with butter and jam. This recipe needs real butter - not margarine or a blend.
1 medium egg
115g butter, cubed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
500g plain flour
2 teaspoons dried active baking yeast

Add the ingredients to the bread maker in the order listed (or the order recommended by your bread maker instructions). Set bread maker to a french setting medium crust (this is a triple rising setting). If your breadmaker doesn't have this setting, use the white bread setting. For loaf size, use 1kg or 750g.
Absolutely loved this loaf, and has now become a favourite. Beautiful taste, and it was very crusty which made it even better. As for the other review I did have to use 100g of bread flour and 400g plain flour as didn't quite have enough plain. Wether this made a difference to the rising I don't know, but I was very impressed with how this came out! - 16 Sep 2014
Unfortunately I followed this recipe to the letter, it overflowed the pan and filled my kitchen with acrid smoke and burnt onto the heating element of my machine. A shame, because this sounds like it should be a good recipe. - 23 Feb 2014
