Homemade Bread (In bread machine)

Why I am waiting to get my own breadmaker my nice friend offered to let me borrow hers. I was so excited and made a loaf right away. It came out ok but I started with a white loaf and we usually eat whole wheat so I tried this recipe today. It came out perfect.

No more store bought bread for us. It is so easy to make my own bread why buy a loaf with a ton of additives and preservatives?

This is for a 2lb loaf and I used the regular setting

1 1/3 cups water
2 TBL butter or oil
1 egg
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar (I actually use slightly less even for 2 lb)
4 cups flour (I mix 1/2 whole wheat & 1/2 bread flour)
1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

Remember to use a scoop to scoop your flour into the measuring cup & use a straight edge to drag across the top to level. Don't mash or tamp flour down into cup
