Re: Favorite Bread Machine Recipes?

Well, I'll share my favorite one I've made so far. This is from Betty Crocker's Best Bread Machine Cookbook.

Oatmeal Bread
1.5 pound recipe (12 slices) / 2 pound recipe (16 slices)
1.25 cups water / 1.25 cups + 2 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp softened butter or margarine / 2 Tbsp softened butter or margarine
3 cups Bread Flour / 4 cups Bread Flour
0.5 cup old fashioned or quick-cooking oats / 2/3 cup old fashioned or quick-cooking oats
3 Tbsp packed brown sugar / .25 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp dry milk / 2 Tbsp dry milk
1.25 tsp salt / 1.5 tsp salt
2 tsp Bread Machine or quick active dry yeast / 2 tsp Bread Machine or quick active dry yeast

Measure carefully, placing all ingredients in bread machine pan in the order recommended by manufacturer.

Select Sweet or Basic/White cycle. Use Light crust color. Remove baked bread from pan and cool on wire rack.

**Optional: add 0.5 cup (1.5 lb loaf)/ 2/3 cup (2 lb loaf) raisins at the raisin/nut signal or 5 to 10 minutes before the last kneading cycle ends.

1 slice: 185 calories (25 calories from fat); 3g fat (1g saturated); 0mg cholesterol; 270mg sodium; 37g carbohydrate (2g dietary fiber); 5g protein

************************************************** *****
Now I add the raisins and today I tried subbing organic sugar w/unsulphured molasses for the brown sugar. YUMMY!!! Great as toast and I bet it would make a fantastic French toast, too!
