Simple Bread Machine White/Wheat Bread

DSC01631

I love my bread machine and I’ve begun to make all of our own bread since I got it. It’s just so easy when you’ve got a machine that does all the work for you especially when you’ve got a little one underfoot. This recipe is our new go-to for bread and it’s so simple and delicious! I’ve played with adding and subtracting honey, butter, olive oil (and sometimes a bit of all three!) and they’re all good. This is just a good basic recipe that you can really dress up and make it your own. If you don’t have a bread machine, I don’t exactly know how this recipe would work by hand, so I don’t recommend it as I haven’t tried it out.

Bread Machine White/Wheat Bread

  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp honey, optional
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp flax seed meal, optional

Add the ingredients in the order listed above and set your bread machine to the basic bread setting with a light crust. In a few hours you are going to have some melt in your mouth bread! We always cut off the heel, butter it up and eat it while it’s still hot. It’s so delicious! Enjoy!
