This simple and plain white bread is for the bread machine. Nothing smells better than bread baking, specially on a wintery snowy day! True, those kinds of days are a bit more rare when you live in the warmest place in Canada. But we still end up with a few of them. 

When I make this recipe, I like to put it on dough setting on the bread machine, then form the loaf and pop it into the oven to bake. 

I don’t have a nice picture for this recipe as my bread went bananas when it rose. When I took it it out of the baking dish, it basically started to collapse on itself from being too big. It made for a wonderfully fluffy bread, but I ended up laying its on its side.
