Bread Machine Recipe

We have 7 inches of snow on the ground and are going nowhere. Perfect day for the house to smell of fresh baked bread! Bring out the bread machine (Really, who makes it from scratch the old fashion way anymore?)and try this recipe. I made it yesterday; it was delicious with supper and great slathered with "real" butter and toasted for breakfast today. While the recipe name is Corn Bread, it is yeast bread with a small amount of cornmeal added. I use medium ground Hoover's Cornmeal from a small grocery store outside of Panama City, FL (Thanks to my dear friend, Judi!). Any cornmeal will do, preferably NOT cornmeal mix which contains baking powder and salt.

Corn Bread for Bread Machine

1 egg, room temp (place in a small bowl of warm water to bring to room temp quickly)
enough water added to the egg to make 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons liquid
3 tablespoons cooking oil
3 tablespoons honey
3 cups all-purpose flour (bread flour, if you have it)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons dry milk
1/3 cup cornmeal
1 envelope dry yeast

Place ingredients in order listed in bread machine. Set on White Bread setting for 1.5 loaf size and medium crust. Go away for about 3 hours and return to a hot loaf of scrumptious homemade bread!!!! How easy is THAT??????
