FOR LARGE (1 1/2 TO 2-POUND) MACHINE
1 cup lukewarm water
1/3 cup lukewarm milk
3 tablespoons butter
3 3/4 cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1/4 cup lukewarm milk
2 tablespoons butter
2 1/2 cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
5 teaspoons sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon active dry yeast or instant yeast
Put all of the ingredients into your machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer.
Program the machine for basic white bread, and press Start.
When the loaf is done, remove the pan from the machine. After about 5 minutes, gently shake the pan to dislodge the loaf, and turn it out onto a rack to cool.
Store, well-wrapped, on the counter for 4 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
