This recipe is for a plain white loaf, its one of my favourites. I had to learn to make bread being a Brit and living in the USA. I don't like the American bread as it is so sweet. Its a very simple recipe. I make it by hand. I have tried and do still own a bread machine, but I found it came out like a cakey texture and the texture to me is important. I usually double or triple this recipe as the dough keeps well in the fridge for about 3 days. If you have company staying with you, it's nice to have for breakfast--the smell of bread baking is wonderful and homey.
