Recipe Name: Sweet Bread
1 cup (225 ml) milk
1/2 tsp (2 ml) vanilla extract
3 tbsp (45 ml) butter
3 tbsp (45 ml) sugar
1-1/2 tsp (7 ml) salt
3 cups (700 ml) bread flour
2-1/4 tsp (10 ml) yeast (I use granulated "bread machine" yeast.)

Select basic white bread.
Select light crust.
Allow machine to complete cycle.
Remove bread and cool on wire rack.
I like this recipe so much that it is the one I now use for all my basic bread baking; I keep some on hand all the time. It makes a somewhat smaller, more compact loaf than some recipes, but slices up nicely and has a great flavor for either toast or sandwiches.
