(well, I use the word "surprise" loosely. It started with me saying "I want a bread machine" but the guy gets credit for remembering!)
I make breads and dough with it frequently...and have since become lazy about making breads by hand.
I read this recipe online and decided it sounded easy enough, even for a lazy bread maker like me.
Honestly, this bread is delicious! I never got around to using it for a sandwich, we were too busy walking by and grabbing part of a roll just to much on.
Plain, with butter, or with a hunk of sharp cheese, it was really just good!

1 Tsp salt
1 Tsp sugar
