This bread is so easy to make, and I use it in my French toast recipe instead of Challah or Brioche.  It’s perfect.  If you do use it in French toast or bread pudding, let it sit on the counter for 2 days to stale.

For a medium loaf:

3 c. bread flour (430 grams)
1  1/2 t. salt
1  1/2 T. dry milk
1  1/2 T. sugar
1  1/2 T. butter, cut up
1 egg
egg and milk to equal 1 – 1/4 c.
1 t. dry yeast

Place yeast in yeast dispenser.
Place rest of ingredients in bread machine in mfgr. recommended order.

Select medium crust.

When finished baking, remove bread and cool on its side on a rack for an hour before slicing.
If using in French toast, let the bread sit on counter for 2 days, or slice and let stale.
