ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Buttermilk Bread is simplicity itself, in a loaf of bread. No fancy ingredients, add-ins, chunks, glazes, double-boilers, chopping, grating, shaping, scooping, timing, layering, filling. Just a warm, homey, buttery loaf to go with - or BE - your meal. Serve it with chicken. Make a sandwich. Toast it for breakfast. Whatever. Just enjoy what buttermilk can bring to a recipe that doesn't need anything else.

Buttermilk Bread
1/2 cup plus 2 T warm water
1/2 cup warm buttermilk (70 to 80 degrees)
1 tsp lemon juice
2 T butter
3 cups bread flour
2 T brown sugar
1 tsp salt
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast (1 packet)

Add ingredients to your bread machine in the order indicated by manufacturer (mine calls for wet ingredients first, then flour, then other dry ingredients and yeast last.) Choose crust color and press START. Makes one 1.5 lb loaf.

I got a bread machine for Christmas and this was the first recipe we tried out (the only one we actually had the ingredients on hand for). It was yummy!
