Ok so I said I would document the messes and successes. Welcome MESS! Now if I would have read the recipe all the way through I could have prevented this flop. So I will post the recipe because it wasn't the recipes fault it was mine. The recipe states that if making a small loaf use rapid bake on the bread machine. Well I made a medium loaf, which was supposed to bake on the standard setting, and of course I saw Rapid Bake first and that's what I did! OOPS! So moral of the story...read directions!!!! This may have been a flop for dinner that night, but it made excellent croutons.
- Place all ingredients in bread pan, using the least amount of liquid listed in the recipe. Select Medium Crust and press Start.
- Observe the dough as it kneads. After 5 to 10 minutes, if appears dry add more liquid 1 T. at a time until smooth, soft, pliable ball forms.
- After baking cycle ends, remove bread from pan, place on wire rack, and allow to cool 1 hour before slicing.
