Many people also find potato bread tastier than regular white bread due to its mild potato flavor. For more great recipes, please visit Bread Dad (BreadDad.com).
Bread Machine settings – 2 pound loaf, light color and ”basic” bread setting.
Unplug bread machine and remove the bread pan.
Add all ingredients starting with the milk into the bread machine “bucket” (bread loaf pan). Place the bread machine yeast in last and the yeast should not touch the liquid (until the bread machine is turned on and the ingredients start to be mixed together).
Place the bread pan back in the bread machine and plug in the bread machine.
Enter the correct settings (basic, light color & 2 lb) and press the "start" button.
When the bread machine has finished baking the bread, you should remove the bread loaf pan from the bread machine. Use oven mitts when removing the bread loaf pan as it will be very hot!
Remove the bread from the bread loaf pan and place the bread on a cooling rack. Let the bread cool down on the cooling rack for 30-60 minutes.
After removing the bread from the bread loaf pan, don’t forget to remove the mixing paddle if it is stuck in the bread. Use oven mitts as the mixing paddle will be very hot coming out of the bread machine. Or wait until the bread is completely cooled and then remove the mixing paddle.
In our Sunbeam bread machine, the baking takes about 3 hours for a 2 pound bread at the light color & basic bread settings. However, some machines can differ and you don’t want to be away from home when the bread machine “finished” alarm goes off! Your bread machine should show you the length of the baking time after you have entered the settings into the machine. This will allow you to know when to be in the kitchen in order to remove the bread.
Before using your bread machine, you should read the bread machine manufacturer’s instructions in order to use the bread machine effectively and safely.
