Today's recipe is my own take on a recipe from a bread machine cookbook. You should be able to adapt it for the oven and for your own bread machine. For example, some machines may require more yeast and my bread machine suggests that the wet ingredients go in the pan first. If you have a bread machine, you know that sometimes the bread falls flat. This recipe is generally pretty reliable despite the fact that I use unbleached all-purpose flour instead of bread flour.
9 oz warm water
1/4 cup olive oil
3 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 1/4 cups bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
This makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf of bread.
The recipe calls for 3 1/4 cups bread flour. Rather than making white bread, I generally substitute up to 1 cup of whole wheat flour to give the bread more fiber.
Put it all in the bread machine pan, turn it on, and come back when it smells good!
