One Loaf to Rule Them All

I have finally found it. The homemade loaf from the bread machine that is light and fluffy, but chewy with a soft crust.  It is the closest I have ever gotten to the texture of store bought, but still shining through with the flavor of homemade. I could go on and on about this bread, but I won’t.  You just need to go make it.
