Egg (Wheat) Sandwich Bread

As you know, I adore my Zojirushi Bread Machine. I have one like this. It's a bit pricey, but I highly recommend it and the brand in general. My rice cooker of the same brand has been with me since sometime in college, approximately 13-14 years. As you know, several weeks ago, I decided to check out a handful of bread machine cookbooks from the library. We enjoyed several recipes from the Better Homes and Gardens Bread Machine Cookbook such as cornmeal pizza dough and french bread baguettes but it was finally time to try another book. This recipe comes from Bread Machine Magic which has some yummy-sounding recipes, though no pictures. Each recipe offers variations for small, medium, and large loaves. This recipe is for a medium loaf, which I think is 2 lbs. Despite the fairly large amount of sugar, the bread isn't noticeably sweet and makes a soft and moist sandwich bread. Plus, it's awesome for grilled cheese.

Egg Sandwich Bread

3/4 c milk
2 eggs
1.5 tsp salt
3 TBS butter
1/4 c sugar
3 c bread flour (I use 1.5 c bread flour and 1/5 c white whole wheat)
2 tsp yeast

Combine ingredients in the order recommended by your bread machine. Set to regular or white bread setting, light crust.

After dough enters kneading cycle, check on it after 5-10 minutes. If it's dry, add more liquid, 1 TBS at a time.

Cool on a wire rack before slicing.
