Easy Cake Bread

This is a bread machine recipe that I've been using this week. It is good. Matthew and I decided that it was a heavy light bread. It's heavy like homemade bread, but is light and airy. Is that clear as mud? This is for the large size or 2 lb. loaf. It rises all the way to the top of my machine.

Easy Cake Bread (from this cookbook)

1 1/4 c. water
2 T. butter
1 c. yellow cake mix
2 1/2 c. bread flour
2 tsp. yeast

Select the white cycle/light color cycle. I tried to do it with a timer overnight and it did not rise. This may be a too much water issue. Both times I've made it, I've either added a little water or a little flour as it was mixing to get the right consistency. You can use different flavors of cake mix to make different kinds of bread. One box of cake mix can be used to make 4-5 loafs of bread.

That sounds yummy, is it sweet like cake? Can it be used with regular sandwiches or something or is it more of a desert?

It could be used with regular sandwiches. Although the texture might make it fall apart. About the best use so far has been to eat it warm with butter. It isn't as sweet as I hoped it would be. It is supposed to be like Hawaiian bread if you have ever had that.
