We usually make and eat 100% whole wheat bread, but occasionally I make white bread for a special treat. We use it for French toast, for "buns" for black bean burgers and for sandwiches. Straight out of the oven with butter it is better than a slice of cake.
Bread Machine White Buttermilk Bread
1 1/8 c warm water (45 sec. microwave)
1 T oil/ butter
3 T honey
1 1/2 t salt
3 c + 2 T white flour
1/4 c powdered buttermilk (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
2 t yeast
Add all ingredients in the order listed. Check dough after first kneading – should be moist and sticky. Add 1T water or flour if necessary. I would err on the side of wet. This particular dough never really forms into a ball, but just looks like a doughy mass until it's baking.
Basic cycle, 1.5 lb. loaf, light crust (take it out 5-10 minutes early if you have the chance). I have a Sunbeam/Oster bread maker (which is the lowest end one you can buy).
