Expert Tips

To make this bread "picture perfect," try the delicious, tangy cheese spread. The recipe makes about 2/3 cup spread, so cover and refrigerate leftovers--if there are any!

Make the flavors sparkle by using orange juice instead of water and stirring in 1 teaspoon grated orange peel with the sugar.

If your bread machine has a 2-pound vertical pan, the loaf will be short but still will have good texture and flavor. If your bread machine has a horizontal pan, however, there isn't enough dough to make a good loaf of baked bread.

If you assemble your ingredients on your kitchen counter in the order they’ll be added to the bread pan, you’ll be able to throw together a foolproof loaf in no time!
