Elaine's Most Excellent Sandwich Bread

5 mins (prep 5)
8 ingredients
1 servings
This recipe is from another Feingold mom (www.feingold.org) and is my absolute fave for regular bread. I use for sandwiches, french toast, buns, anything I need a good-bodied bread for. It's heaven on earth when freshly baked and spread with real butter! This bread has enough body to slice for sandwiches. Sometimes I substitute 3 T molasses for the sugar or add 1 T Italian seasoning. You can also put it on the dough cycle and shape into hamburger buns, hot dog buns or hoagie rolls.
