This one leelee79! - it's from "Alison Holst's Bread Book" by Simon & Alison Holst (1997) and justin case anyone would like to make the bread by hand I'll include the Handmade Bread Instructions as well.

Makes a large loaf (7-8 cup pan).

3 tsp Sure bake yeast
1¼ cups plus 2 tbsp warm water
2 tbsp lecithin granulesoroil
2tsp sugar
1½ tsp salt
2 tbsp non-fat milk powder
3 cups high grade flour

Bread Machine Instructions:Carefully measure all the ingredients into a 750g capacity bread machine, in the order specified by the manufacturer.
Set to the NORMAL/WHITE bread cycle, MEDIUM crust and START (or use the DOUGH cycle and shape and bake by hand).This is a very good timer bread.

Handmade Bread Instructions:
Measure the first 6 ingredients into a large bowl. Add 1½ cups of the measured high grade flour and mix thoroughly.Cover and leave for 15 minutes or longer in a warm place.
Stir in the remaining flour, adding a little extra warm water or high grade flour if necessary, to make a dough just firm enough to knead.
Knead with the dough hook of an electric mixer or by hand on a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes, adding extra flour if necessary, until the dough forms a soft ball which springs back when pressed gently.
Turn the dough in 2-3 tsp oil in the cleaned, dry bowl, cover with cling film and leave in a warm draught-free place for about 30 minutes.
Knead the oiled dough lightly in the bowl for a minute, then pat it into a square a little longer than the baking pan. Roll dough into a cylinder, then put into the sprayed or buttered bread pan, pressing it into the corners and levelling the top.
Leave to rise, in a warm, draught-free place for about an hour, or until double its original size.
If desired, brush with milk or egg glaze and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake at200°Cforabout 30 minutes, or until the unmoulded loaf has a browned bottom and sides and sounds hollow when tapped.:-))
