This is wonderful with spaghetti, lasagna, or another Italian dish, but my family likes it with almost anything. It’s very good if made the day before you need it, then split down the middle, buttered, and reheated at mealtime. I use a bread machine, but it can be made without. I like to use the dough cycle, then bake it in a French loaf pan.
For bread machine: Place all ingredients in bread pan as recommended by your manufacturer. Process on “Regular” or “White Bread” cycle. Remove promptly after baking cycle is complete.

The quality of the flour could make a real difference to your bread. Different brands do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which doesn’t always getting bigger as well as white bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can work it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
