Iain made bread in our breadmaker for the first time in a long while last weekend, and not only was it delicious, but the whole house smelled like warm bread for a day. So basically Iain made literal slices of happiness.

If you've got a breadmaker and are looking for the simplest of simple bread recipes, here's the one we used:

4 & 7/16 cups of bread flour
2 tsp salt
2 tbsp dry milk
2 & 1/2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp sugar
1 & 3/4 cups water
1 & 1/2 tsp dry yeast

(Follow the specific directions for cooking times on your breadmaker.)
