I dug out the breadmaker, dusted it off and did my old trusted farmhouse fluffy white loaf. I first published this recipe back in 2010 but I don’t want to touch that post so I am reblogging here.
This loaf is a lovely fluffy number, the kind that sends its crust crumbs every where and the crust ends get argued over. To cut, I actually turn it sideways and cut that way. It is a basic loaf and won’t last long. The sooner you eat it, the better. I used the French setting on my bread-maker and the highest crust setting.
Dig out the breadmaker and fill your house with the sweet smell of fresh bread.

Set to the required settings to get a good crusty.
