About this recipe: This is a bread machine recipe. For toast and sandwiches, it's my family's favourite.
Altered ingredient amounts. Hi All, I submitted this recipe a couple years ago and am just now checking back. We still go through a loaf a day (the children even fight over the crusts!), but we do use about 5 tablespoons flour more than what I originally wrote. A "heavy" tsp. of yeast is nice also. Will try the butter in place of oil, sounds good. Thank you! Merrilee Bell - 14 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. This was very easy to make and it came out great! I did make one change, however. Instead of using all plain flour, I used half plain flour and half wholemeal flour. This gave it more fibre and a better, nuttier taste. I also add vital wheat gluten, which is available at health shops. This gives more volume to loaves and a more bread-like texture. The rule is to add one teaspoon of wheat gluten per 125g of flour or one and a half teaspoons for wholemeal flour. I hope this tip is helpful for those who may be having trouble with the size of their bread loaves as a result of not using bread flour. I will be making this bread again soon! - 14 Jul 2008
