Country White Bread

Bread, Bread Machine


2 1/4 tsp yeast (or one packet)

3 1/4 cup bread flour

1 1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup sugar

4 1/2 tsp oil

1 large egg

1 cup plus 1 Tblsp. warm water


In bread machine pan, place all ingredients from flour through yeast in order as recommended by the manufacturer.

Select the basic bread setting.

Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing, if needed add 1-2T of water or flour.

Bake as normal.

For dinner rolls.

Mix in bread machine but use only the dough option.

Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking pan (I always use a metal pan).

When dough is finished shape into 15 uniformly sized balls. I always grease my hands with shortening to smooth the dough out and it helps keep the dough from drying out.

Cover and let the rolls rise in a warm, draft free place until risen to the desired size.

I let them about double in size.

Bake in a 350° oven about 12-15 minutes until golden brown.

After removing from the oven, brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter.

Take out of pan and let completely cool before storing.
