Recipe from the book 'Complete Cookery Breadmachine'. I like the butter fragrant when removing loaf from the loaf tin.
3 tbsp caster sugar
½ tsp salt
450g strong white bread flour
2tbsp dried milk powder
1tsp instant dried yeast
100g sultanas or raisins (optional)
Remove the bread pan from the machine. Pour in the milk. Add the egg, butter, sugar and salt. Add the flour, making sure that the water is completely covered. Place the milk powder in one corner. Sprinkle the yeast over the flour. If your machine recommends that you add the dry ingredients first, simply reverse the order that you add them to the pan.
Fit the bread pan in the machine, set the programme to the basic setting, light crust, and press start. If using, add dried fruit to the pan when the machine beeps for extra ingredients, or about 5 minutes before the end of kneading.
When cycle is complete, switch off the machine. Using oven gloves, carefully remove the pan. Turn out the bread onto a wire rack to cool.
