Softest Soft Bread with Air Pockets Using Bread Machine

Softest Soft Bread with Air Pockets Using Bread Machine

Wawa Wang 3

"I played around with basic white bread recipes quite a bit and finally have come up with the perfect soft, fluffy, white bread with air pockets. Maybe a little too soft to slice right away. But if you let it cool a bit, it shouldn't be a problem. Toasted with a little butter and jam, it is a slice of heaven!"

I make loads of bread in my bread machine--usually I make the dough then pop it in the oven, and I rarely get a loaf of bread that doesn't work out that way. I've made bread we haven't liked as...
