- 2 heaping cups white bread flour
- 1 cup wheat flour
- 2 tablespoons dry milk powder
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 2 teapoons salt
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 packet quick rise yeast
I like to mix the honey in 1/2 cup of the water so that it doesn’t sit in one place in the bread machine. My machine says to put dry ingredients first, then oil and honey and then water last. My machine also has a little yeast dispenser so it adds it at the right time. You can just sprinkle the yeast on last if you don’t have that.
In my machine I can make this on the BAKE RAPID setting, which is basically a white setting. You can bake it on the wheat setting, too, or a regular white setting.
As long as you don’t forget the oil, this makes a nice, light loaf that the kids will eat but you’ll like too.
You can use olive oil instead of canola oil. It makes the bread more European. You can use butter instead of oil, too. You can also use molasses instead of honey or just use 2 tbsp. sugar. I don’t know how to use liquid milk, but that would be fun to try.
