Here’s an updated version of Grandma’s favorite. This rich butter-and-egg bread is traditionally made in a ring mold and served hot from the oven.

2 tbsp butter (room temperature) 25 mL
31⁄4 cups all-purpose flour or bread flour 800 mL

- Measure ingredients into baking pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Insert pan into the oven chamber.
- Select Sweet Cycle.
Use large eggs straight from the refrigerator for bread machine recipes. Warm the milk to room temperature before adding.
Recipes containing eggs, milk and butter should not be baked using the timer.
Yes, you’re reading it right: The 1.5 lb (750 g) recipe contains more yeast than the 2.5 lb (1.25 kg).
Substitute 1⁄3 cup (75 mL) buttermilk powder and 1 cup (250 mL) water for every cup of milk required in the recipe. Add the buttermilk powder with the flour.

Nada’s Tips & Tricks: This is my family’s favourite. You can make this into a savoury loaf by adding different herbs and spices and running it on the basic cycle instead of the sweet.
