Walter Sands' Favorite Bread Machine Bread
This bread may be prepared and baked right in the machine (1 1/2-pound or larger models), or prepared in the machine, then removed, shaped, given a final rise and baked in a conventional oven. Either way, it's a good, down-to-earth white sandwich bread.
This is a variation on a recipe from Walter Sands, one-time president and owner of the King Arthur Flour company. A member of just one of the many generations of the Sands family associated with the business, Walter made this bread faithfully once a week for years. Because of his arthritic hands, he used a bread bucket with a crank, which kneaded hundreds of loaves of this fragrant, soft sandwich bread with all its happy associations. We've modified Walter's recipe here for use in a bread machine.
