In honor of Homemade Bread Day

Okay, I can’t resist saying it.. Bread, I love bread!!


There is a fantastic bread recipe located in the Feingold Family Cookbook. The name of this bread is:

Elaine’s Most Excellent Sandwich Bread

From Elaine:  “I make a loaf or two a day for my girls. I looked in several books for a recipe with egg and finally made up my own. I have a 1.5 pound Oster Bread Maker.”

1 c. water

2 tsp. butter

1/4 c. sugar

1 egg

3 c. flour

1 1/2 tsp. yeast

1 tsp. salt

Place in bread machine in the order your machine asks for and cook on the regular cycle. The bread has enough body to slice for sandwiches. Sometimes I substitute 3 tsp. molasses for the sugar or add 1 tsp. Italian seasoning. You can also put it on the dough cycle and shape into hamburger buns, hot dog buns or hoagie rolls.
