Basic White Bread
  Basic Bread is made of bread flour, sugar, dry milk, salt, butter and active dry yeast. Bread flour is well-suited for use in yeast breads since it has a higher gluten and protein content than all purpose flour. Dry yeast (simply dried granules of yeast) changes food (especially sugar) into carbon dioxide bubbles. The bubbles get trapped in the gluten, which together form fluffy bread.
