::Bread Machine White Bread {or rolls}::

I'd never be a candidate for the Atkins Diet. Never. Ever. Ever. I would, however, be the perfect candidate for a carbs only diet. Yes. Yes. Yes. With that being said, here is a wonderful white bread recipe that you can make using your bread machine. I haven't made buns/rolls using this recipe, but in the directions and in the reviews, it says it makes great ones! If you do not have a bread machine, do not be afraid. I think you'd just have to mix together the wet ingredients, whisk together the dry ingredients, combine and knead, let it rise, punch it down, let it rise again... and bake. This bread has a nice texture, as it is fluffly but still has some "dense" to it and as far as taste, it has that nice white bread taste that has a hint of sweetness too! Enjoy!

::Bread Machine Country White Bread or Dinner Rolls::

1 cup water, plus
1 tablespoon water (70-80 F)
1 large egg
4 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
3 1/4 cups bread flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
2 tablespoons melted butter (for dinner rolls only) (optional)
2 tablespoons shortening (for dinner rolls only) (optional)

In bread machine pan, place all ingredients from flour through yeast in order as recommended by the manufacturer.  Select the basic bread setting (or whatever setting to use to make a white bread).
Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing, if needed add 1-2T of water or flour.
Bake as normal.

For dinner rolls:
Mix in bread machine but use only the dough option.
Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking pan (I always use a metal pan).
When dough is finished shape into 15 uniformly sized balls. I always grease my hands with shortening to smooth the dough out and it helps keep the dough from drying out.
Cover and let the rolls rise in a warm, draft free place until risen to the desired size.
I let them about double in size.
 Bake in a 350° oven about 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
After removing from the oven, brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter.
Take out of pan and let completely cool before storing.

This is a picture of the bread machine pan...with the water.

Then the egg...

Oil (yes, you really do just add the ingredients in order as listed)...

Bread Flour...

Ready for the sugar.

The sugar!

Salt. Can't have a recipe without it.


This is a very good bread machine that was purchased at Kohl's. The vent looking thing towards the back of the bread machine is a place to put nuts, raisins, etc. etc...for if you are making a bread with it and it will automatically release them at the time when they need to be added!

All baked up! My favorite part about fresh bread is putting peanut butter on it to melt..and devour (sp?).
