Bread Machine Sour Cream-Vanilla Bread

*** UPDATE *** This bread makes AWESOME French toast!!!

If you remember I got some sour cream for free last week with the HEB meal deal. After flipping through a bunch of recipes, I decided to try this recipe from Betty Crocker. I tried to get the link up, but there is a problem with their site this morning.

This is a good bread, but it is nothing like the description on their website. It is basically just a slightly sweet white bread, not "pound cake - like" as described by Betty Crocker. It had a nice airy texture, which contradicted a bunch of the reviews.

James was pretty happy to actually have a white bread in our house. I'm not sure when I last made a white bread but I will definitely be making this again. I am going to toast it up for breakfast this morning and make French toast with the leftovers tomorrow morning.

1 egg
1 T butter, softened
3 c Bread flour
