Course: Bread
Keyword: Bread Machine
Servings: 1 loaf


  • Bread Machine
  • Measuring Cups
  • Measuring Spoons


  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/3 cup lukewarm milk
  • 3 Tbsp melted butter
  • 3 Tbsp white sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp instant dry yeast
  • 3 3/4 cup all purpose flour


  • Pour in ALL your ingredients by order into the bread machine.
  • Close the lid, choose your settings. I do a 2 lb loaf, basic loaf, light or medium crust. And then click start.
  • After the bread is all done, carefully remove the pan from the machine and leave on the counter for 10 minutes. To get the bread out, carefully shake it and place in a storage container or bag. 
  • Serve warm or cold, do as you wish. Just store it properly for freshness and so it doesn't go stale quickly. It last about 3-4 days stored in a cloth bag in a dark area of your kitchen or pantry.


* Vegan options work as well and taste just as good. My go-to is Earth Balance Vegan Butter and Oatmilk.
