White bread

This made a good bread with a soft crust. The inside was very airy and went very well with our soup. With all the yeast it did touch the top of my bread maker for a bit but that was the only problem with it:) There's nothing like that fresh bread smell on a cold day!

1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 (.25 ounce) package bread machine yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons if you keep a jar of yeast like I do)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt

Place the water, sugar and yeast in the pan of the bread machine. Let the yeast dissolve and foam for 10 minutes. Add the oil, flour and salt to the yeast. Select Basic or White Bread setting, and press Start.

I made this again last night but with a twist. I set the bread machine to dough only, added a teaspoon of Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb to the flour and then baked it in the oven as a traditional boule. It smelled and tasted wonderful and was super easy!

Mrs. Dash sounds like a great addition! I'll have to try it, thanks:o)
