Let your bread machine do all the work for you! Fresh, preservative-free bread made in your kitchen. The aroma while baking is amazing and this bread has the chewiness of an english muffin, and makes toast with those yummy, crunchy english-muffin-type edges.
1 cup milk
1/4 cup water
1/2 Tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
Put milk and water in glass measuring cup and microwave for 30 seconds. Pour into bread machine pan and add sugar and salt. Dump in flour and sprinkle baking powder over flour. Make a well in the center of the flour and put yeast in the well. Set bread machine to dough cycle and push start.
When dough cycle is finished, turn dough out onto floured surface. Form into a loaf and place in oiled (I use olive oil nonstick spray) metal bread pan. Cover loosely with a towel and let rise until about 1/2 to 1 inch over the top of the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes. Remove from pan immediately and cool on wire rack.
You may slice and eat bread right away but don't put the loaf in a storage bag until it is completely cooled. Enjoy!
