  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1. In bread machine pan, place the first seven ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed). When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a well-floured surface.
