Buttermilk Bread

(originally made 9/2012)

I earmarked a bunch of bread recipes over the weekend.    This one made the menu today due to it's ease of prep.    I do fear my bread machine is on it's last leg, while this rose and tastes amazing, I have a horizontal loaf pan and it should have risen a bit higher.   

I brush the top crust with butter then wrap the loaf in foil to keep it warm until meal time.    I always seem to have a little bit of buttermilk leftover from other recipes and this was great to use that up.   I'd definitely make this one again, maybe even just using the dough setting and then forming it and baking it in the oven.
