About this recipe: After trying 101 recipes for a white loaf, I always ended up with a heavy dense loaf. After experimenting for some time, I have come up with this light weight yummy loaf. Have a go and see what you think.
I use full fat milk. If you use semi-skimmed, add the full 8oz of the semi-skimmed and no water is needed. Remember, breadmakers differ. I have given the baking instructions for my machine; different flours or yeast give different results. I use Allinsons® yeast in light green packets (Asda sell 3kg bags).
I keep my eggs in the fridge, and take one out on the morning to reach room temperature.
I tried this on the two hour fast bake and it came out very heavy, but when I run it for the full three hours I get an excellent result each time. Made about twenty since and every one a winner! Cristo - 03 Mar 2013
I tried this recipe with trepidation as the method was completely different to that in my bread maker instruction book. It produced one of the best loaves I have ever made.Thank you. - 22 Oct 2011
This is the best bread i have made in my bread maker it tastes great and has a good crumb and the crust is just right my rapid bake time on my machine is 1hr 30 mins and it came out great. I am going to double up the ingredients to see if i can get a bigger size loaf. - 13 Mar 2012
