Automatic bread machine: 1 - 1/2 lb. machine: 1 cup + 1 tbsp warm water; entire package dry bread mix; 2 tbsp (in pieces) butter, margarine or vegetable oil (Light and whipped margarines do not work well.), entire packet yeast. 1 lb machine: 7/8 cup warm water, measure 2 - 1/2 cups of dry bread mix, 1 - 1/2 Tbsp (in pieces) butter, margarine, or vegetable oil (Light and whipped margarines do not work well.), measure 1 tsp of yeast. Hodgson Mill White Bread Mix is formulated specially for 1 - 1/2 lb electric bread machines, but can be easily adjusted for the smaller one-pounders. Simply follow the grid above and always consult your particular make and model bread machine manufacturer's directions. Use the basic white bread setting on your machine. Oven baked bread: 1. Pour contents of package into bowl. Using a fork, cut in 2 tbsp butter, margarine (light and whipped margarines do not work well) or vegetable oil. 2. In another large mixing bowl, mix dry yeast and 1 cup + 1 tbsp warm water. Let stand 5 minutes. 3. Gradually stir in enough bread mix to make a soft dough, reserving some mix to lightly flour a surface for kneading. Turn dough onto surface and knead until smooth: about 5 minutes. 4. Coat a large, clean mixing bowl with vegetable shortening. Place dough in bowl. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until double (1 to 1-1/2 hrs). 5. Punch down and turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Form dough into a rectangle, roll-up and place into greased 8-1/2 x 4-1/2 x 2-1/2 inch bread pan. Do not cover. Allow to rise in a warm place until dough rises just above the top of the pan (30 min to 1 hour). 6. Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven until golden brown (30 to 35 minutes).

The flavor and texture of this white bread is excellent. It slices well, and lasts almost a week without refrigeration. It bakes up with a marvelous crust in my machine, an older Panasonic BT55-P. Simple to use, and saves a lot of work over manual baking. I use either unsalted butter or canola oil; margerine does not seem to work as well or taste as good.
The only issue with the White Bread Mix is excessive rising. I've solved that by using the 1-pound-loaf-machine formula, rather than the entire (1.5-pound-loaf-machine) box. My machine IS a 1.5 pounder, but this white mix is EAGER. I tried using a tad less than the full packet of yeast with the entire box of mix, but the bread still got huge and stuck to the inside of the lid upon baking. You can either throw out the excess mix, save it up and make a full loaf when you have enough remainders, or run the dough cycle and finish the baking in the oven in a proper bread pan. I have only had the excess rising issue with the white bread mix.
The Honey Wheat variety is even more delicious than the white, but does not slice quite as well. It's a tad crumb-y, and maybe a bit softer: excellent for sandwiches. Both make superb french toast.
Also tried the 9-grain, which is a somewhat denser bread, and again has simply marvelous flavor. I'm sorry I missed this whole bread machine concept until now, and am enjoying having flavorful and healthy bread, with a wonderful smell filling the house, and saving about $1.50 per loaf over supermarket bread.
It does say to use 1 cup + 1 Tblsp warm/hot water (in addition to 2 Tblsp butter), but I always have to use 1 cup + 4 Tblsp water to get the right dough moisture, even with adding 2 tsp extract too. I live in the Pacific Northwest so it's not like we have a dry climate here. Something to note if you've never made yeast bread before, as the dough comes together you'll need to check its consistency to see if it needs more water.
1) Add a little bit of extra yeast. The white bread comes out a little dense and I prefer that fluffy, airy nature that comes from a better rise.
2) Warm up the water and let it sit a little bit in the pan before you get started.
3) Use canola oil (or whatever oil) instead of butter. Then you don't have to keep butter on hand or mess with frozen butter by thawing or melting it.
4) Add stuff to make it delicious!! You can substitute the water with milk or anything that sounds yummy. You can also add things – my favorite add-ins include
-Pumpkin seeds (this is great with the carrot juice)
-Chia seeds (these don’t change flavor or texture at all, they just add fiber
-raisins or craisins or other small dried fruits like cherries or blueberries
-chopped walnuts or other nuts
-Herbs or spices
Here’s some of my favorite breads I’ve made starting with the white bread mix:
1) Cinnamon raisin
2) Carrot juice instead of water, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds
3) Dried pineapple, crasins, and half the water substituted with orange juice
4) Dill and rosemary with some nuts or seeds
5) Oats, honey, and chopped walnuts
6) Cinnamon raisin
7) garlic, onion, crushed red pepper, and shredded cheese
8) Basil and chopped sundried tomatoes
