    Bread Machine Sweet Bread Recipe

    My son loves bread! If I let him, he would eat an entire loaf in one day. I recently got my bread machine out again so that I could make him fresh bread at home. To make his bread healthier, I use whole wheat flour whenever possible. Just the other day, I modified my original sweet bread recipe to use whole wheat flour instead of white. The result is a lightly sweet soft bread with a crispy crust that he and I both loved!

    Ingredients

    • 2 whole eggs
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 8 tablespoons of butter
    • 1/3 cup of water
    • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
    • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
    • 4 tablespoons of white sugar
    • 3/4 teaspoon of salt
    • 1 3/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

    Directions

    1. Cut the butter into small pieces.
    2. Pour the eggs, egg yolk, butter, and water in the bottom of the bread machine pan.
    3. Add the flour, baking soda, sugar, and salt.
    4. Use a spoon to form a divot in the dry ingredients.
    5. Pour the yeast into the divot.
    6. Place the bread machine pan in the bread machine.
    7. Select the basic/white bread cycle. Set the bread machine to 2 pound loaf and desired crust color.
    8. Allow bread to cool slightly and then remove from the bread machine pan.
    9. Allow to cool thoroughly before slicing.
    10. Store any uneaten sweet bread in an airtight container.
