Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup lukewarm water plus 2 tablespoons
  • 2 eggs plus 1 egg yolk, lightly whisked
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 3/4 cups bread flour plus 2 tablespoons
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into tablespoon-sized pats, softened

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients except for the softened butter to the bread machine in the order specified by your bread machine maker. I have listed the ingredients in the order for my older model Regal bread maker.
  • Set your bread machine to 'sweet' or 'regular' if yours doesn't have a 'sweet' setting and begin processing.
  • minutes before the second kneed cycle is completed start adding the butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, 1 minute between adding each one. NOTE: My bread machine book has a chart showing the various cycle times. For mine, making sweet bread, the 2nd kneed begins after 15 minutes and last 20 minuets. So, I began adding the butter 27 minutes (15 minutes + 20 minutes - 8 minutes) after starting the bread.
  • Let machine finish and then open the top. Let the bread cool 20 minutes before removing to slice.

Notes

Follow the measurement amounts exactly to get the proper texture.
