Daily Bread

I make this bread quite often. It's good for sandwiches and toast. White whole wheat flour makes for a milder tasting bread.

Kari's Buttermilk Bread (for bread machine)

1 cup soy milk
1 1/2 tsp white (or cider) vinegar
2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
2 Tbsp honey or maple syrup (or sugar or other sweetener of choice)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour (I use King Arthur brand.)
1 1/2 cups bread flour
4 tsp vital wheat gluten
2 tsp instant yeast

Add vinegar to soy milk in measuring cup. If cold, warm 30 seconds in microwave. Put ingredients in your bread machine according to manufacturer's instructions. Set for 1 1/2-pound loaf, medium crust, white bread. After machine is kneading a while, check to make sure all the flour is incorporated into a ball and not stuck to sides of pan. If too dry, add water a teaspoon at a time. If too wet, add flour a teaspoon at a time.
