Rapid Cycle Buttermilk Bread
- 1-2/3 cups warm tap water
- 2 tablespoon margarine
- 4-1/2 cups bread flour
- 1/3 cup buttermilk powder
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
Measure the ingredients into the bread pan in the order listed. Make a well in the flour and sprinkle the yeast into it. Set the machine to it’s Rapid or Quick Cycle. On my machine this lasts for 80 minutes, or 1-1/3 hours. Press Start, and let the machine work it’s magic. Remove the cooked bread from the pan after baking and allow it to cool before slicing.
This recipe has a texture very close to hand-made bread. It stays fresher longer than other machine made bread because of the buttermilk. Buttermilk Powder is available in larger grocery stores in the baking section with the other powder milk products.
Makes one 2 pound loaf.
