- 1 egg beaten
- 3-1/2 cups bread mix (see above)
- 1-1/2 teaspoon yeast
Mix all together in bread machine according to manufacturer's instructions.
Notes: When measuring out the mix to make bread, stir it up in the container and spoon it out into the cup. It seems to make the bread more airy.
Variation: I also use this to make cinnamon bread. Add 1 tablespoon cinnamon and 1 cup raisins. If your machine has a nut and fruit button or if it beeps at the correct time, add the raisins then. If you add them at the beginning when you put all the other ingredients in it chops up the raisins up too finely.
