buttermilk wheat bread

hello, sweet readers!

the minute i saw this recipe for
i knew i *had* to give it a try.

...& i have to tell you...
i was not disappointed!

this bread is so soft
& tastes like a really good, expensive, store-bought loaf...
but it's not! :D
the hubs & i even took snowhite's advice
& made some killer grilled cheese sandwiches.
they were amazing.

buttermilk wheat bread

1 1/4 C buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 C honey
1 Tbs butter
1/4 C dry milk
1 1/2 C bread flour
1 1/2 C whole wheat flour
2 1/4 tsp yeast

1. combine ingredients in your bread maker according to manufacturer's directions.

2. set to "dough" cycle & allow the bread to knead & complete the cycle. check the dough as it starts kneading; both snowhite & i needed to add a bit more flour to the dough.

3. when the cycle is complete, remove the bread dough from the bread machine & shape into a loaf. place in a lightly greased loaf pan. cover & allow to rise for about 1 hour, or until doubled.

4. bake at 325 f for 30-40 minutes, or until the bread is nicely brown & it sounds hollow when tapped.
*i had to bake mine for about 60 minutes*

5. remove the loaf from the pan & cool on a wire rack.

6. cool completely {resist temptations!} before slicing. the bread is much too soft to slice before then!

i don't know if i will ever buy a loaf of bread again.
this was quite simple to make,
it's really delicious,
the quality is amazing,
& did i mention it tastes delicious?
because it does.
