For a 2 lb loaf, please use the 2 lb ingredient list and set the bread machine settings to 2 pound loaf, light color and “basic” bread options. For a 1.5 lb loaf, please use the 1.5 lb ingredient list and set the bread machine settings to 1.5 pound loaf, light color and “basic” bread options. FYI - Make sure not to confuse the 1.5 lb & 2 lb ingredient amounts and machine settings!
Unplug the bread machine & then remove the bread pan.
Add all ingredients starting with the milk into the bread machine “bucket” (loaf pan). Make sure the yeast is last and does not touch the milk or salt. Some people like to make a small "divot" on top of the flour in order to hold the yeast in one spot before the machine starts.
Place the bread pan (with ingredients) back into the bread machine.
Plug in bread machine. Enter the correct settings (for either 1.5 lb or 2 lb loaf version) and press the "start" button.
Optional - After the bread machine has finished kneading and before the baking cycle commences, sprinkle some old fashioned oatmeal flakes on top of the bread dough.
When the bread machine has finished baking the bread, unplug the bread machine. Remove the bread and place it on a cooling rack. Use oven mitts when removing the bread machine container (bread loaf pan) as it will be very hot!
In our Sunbeam bread machine, the baking takes about 3 hours for a 2 pound bread loaf (and 2:53 hours for a 1.5 lb bread loaf) 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.
