English Muffin Bread Machine Recipe

Updated on February 20, 2012
1 Cup
Milk
1/4 Cup
Water
1 Tsp
Salt
1 1/2 Tsp
Sugar
1/8 Tsp
Baking Soda
3 Cups
all-purpose or bread machine flour
1 pkg
Active Dry yeast

Substitutions

If you want to set your machine for the delayed bake cycle, substitute the 1 cup of milk with 1/3 cup Instant Dry Milk powder and enough water to make 1 cup. (Put the 1/3 cup of dry milk powder in the 1 cup measure and then add the water).

If you use the jars of yeast, use 2 1/4 Tsp yeast for the one package of yeast.

Step 5

Put the bread pan into the machine securely, close the lid, and plug the machine into the outlet. Make the necessary settings for your machine for basic white bread. For my machine that is 1.5 lb loaf, white bread, and medium crust color. Press start.

Step 6

At 5 to 10 seconds into the second knead cycle on the machine, check the dough. It should not be too dry. If it is add some water 1 tsp at a time. Or too sticky, if it is add some flour 1 tsp at a time. Also, if there is flour stuck in the corners of the pan, use a spatula to loosen the flour so that the machine can knead it into the dough.

Step 7

When the machine signals that it is done cooking the bread, carefully remove the bread pan from the machine using an oven mitt. Turn the bread pan upside down and shake the loaf from the pan onto a wire rack. Remove the "beater" if it is stuck in the bottom of the bread.

Step 8

Butter the crust to make it softer and easier to slice. Cool on a wire rack until the loaf is cool enough to hold without burning your fingers. This takes practice, try 30 minutes to an hour. Wrap loaf in plastic wrap and cool overnight.

If you and your family just cannot wait until the bread is fully cooled to try the bread, purchase a good bread knife that will cut the loaf without collapsing it.

Step 9

Slice bread, toast, and enjoy.

      Simple recipe to make. I only wish our bread maker paddle would stop scraping the bottom of the pan!!! Haven't tasted it yet but I love the idea of buttering the crust. I'm vegan so I'll make a healthy substitute.
