Rapid Cycle White Bread
Makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf.
1cup warm tap water
1 1/3 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 cups bread flour or regular white flour
1 1/3 tablespoons dry milk powder
1 teaspoons salt
1 1/3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/3 teaspoons bread machine yeast
Measure the ingredients into the bread pan in the order listed. Make
a well in the flour and sprinkle the yeast into it. Set the machine
to itís Rapid or Quick Cycle. Press Start. Remove the cooked
bread from the pan after baking and allow it to cool before slicing.
-* Due to shorter time in proofing when using the quick or
rapid setting, this bread is very dense and hard, not so suitable
for Asian taste. Would recommend change to basic setting of 3 hrs
cook time for a more softer bread.
This recipe has a texture very close to hand-made bread. It is the
recipe my family eats most often, every day, in fact. It wonít rise
up as high and fluffy as bread mixed and cooked on the Standard
Cycle. This ďlackĒ of kneading and rising is what makes itís texture
closer to hand-made.
