To start with I used the recipe from King Arthur Flour, found here. It's very straight forward and while I used the same ingredients, I mixed everything in my Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook, where their recipe calls to use your bread machine. Didn't seem to make one bit of difference.
1 3/4 cups (14 ounces) milk, warm
2 teaspoons instant yeast
2 tablespoons (7/8 ounce) granulated sugar
3 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) butter
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
4 to 4 1/4 cups (17 to 18 ounces) Flour (I used 2 cups of white and 2 cups of whole wheat flour)
Mix the milk, yeast and sugar until yeast is dissolved. Add remaining ingredients and scrape into an oiled bowl. Let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
