Homemade White Bread With Crunchy Crust
Some days you just want to have something fresh, warm, and delicious with absolutely no effort. Well, this is your ultimate dump and be impressive recipe. If it weren’t for the smell, I would have completely forgotten I was making it at all! But if my husband asks, I was slaving over a hot oven for three hours. 😉
I love this recipe so much. Since I substitute any oil or butter for apple sauce, it is completely fat free (until you put a ton of butter on it once you finish baking)! Well, let’s dive in!
- 1 cup lukewarm water
- 1/3 cup lukewarm milk
- 3 tablespoons apple sauce
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 3 3/4 cups flour
- Dump all the ingredients into your bread machine, sit back, and smell the magic.
- Ummm….. that’s it.
Once your bread is finished baking, let it sit for 5-10 minutes and then remove from the baking pan. you can dig in right away or let it finish cooling. (tip: the bread will cut much prettier once it is cooled completely. Use a very sharp serated knife for best results.)
