Buttermilk Bread

I've found a new favorite bread.  It's the right density and good both using for a sandwich or toast.  Plus I used my bread machine (just to dough setting) so it's not sitting downstairs collecting dust.

Buttermilk Bread

3 cups bread flour
2 1/2 tsp bread machine active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water

1/2 cup buttermilk, room temperature
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar

1/2 tbsp honey
2 1/2 tbsp butter, softened

Put all of the ingredients in your bread machine and put on dough setting.

When done, remove from machine and put in a greased bread pan.  Let rise for about a half hour in a warm area.

Bake until a golden brown 
for 30 minutes at 350°.  Remove from oven and brush with butter.
