Fast & Delicious Bread Machine White Bread

This was a very easy and very quick recipe.  The taste is outstanding.  The bread is not as firm as others, but it’s yummy, specially hot.  And it doesn’t require special ingredients!

  • 9 oz hot water
  • 2 Tbsp. oil
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 1/2 tsp. active dry yeast
 Put all ingredients in the bread machine basket in the order above.  Use the express baking setting.

Con Pane Rustic Breads & Cafe – San Diego

We went to Con Pane last February (2012) when we visited San Diego for the Democratic Convention.  Our friend Ralph took us there for breakfast one morning – and we had enough bread leftover for lunch!  I got the Sweet Bread Baker’s Plate ($4), consisting of 3 enormous slices of fresh bread (your choice), served with butter, fruit preserves and creme cheese.  The bread was delicious.  Probably my favorite was the Pain au Levain, your basic country white bread – with butter and jam it was just heavenly.  The Kalamata Olive bread was probably my least favorite, but I’m not a huge olive fan.  I recommend that you get a bread plate to share – one slice is definitely enough.  We also shared a couple of pastries, but it was too long ago and I can’t recall what they were.  My recollection is that they were good, but not impressive.  Coffee was good, and the place quite nice.  All in all, I’d go back.
