Ingredients


  • 1-POUND LOAF
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon butter OR margarine, cut up
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Fleischmann's® Bread Machine Yeast
  • 1-1/2-POUND LOAF
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter OR margarine, cut up
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Directions


Add ingredients to bread machine pan in the order suggested by manufacturer. (If dough is too dry or stiff or too soft or slack, adjust dough consistency - see Adjusting Dough Consistency tip below.)

Recommended cycle: Basic/white bread cycle; light or medium/normal color setting.

Adjusting Dough Consistency: After mixing for a few minutes, the ingredients should turn into a smooth ball around the kneading blade. If the dough appears too stiff or too soft, add more liquid or flour in 1 teaspoon increments, until the proper consistency is reached. Do not add more than 3 to 4 teaspoons liquid or flour. The machine can not compensate for wide variations and may not bake the larger amount of dough thoroughly.
