Place all ingredients in bread pan in order. Select medium Crust and press start

Observe the dough as it kneads.

After 5-10 minutes, if it appears dry or stiff add 1 tablespoon of water at a time ,until dough forms a smooth, soft, pliable ball that is slightly tacky to the touch.

After the baking cycle ends, remove the pan,place on a cake rack and let cool 1 hour before slicing.

In a Zojirushi, use the regular cycle.
