English Toasting Bread for Bread Maker

1 tsp vinegar
1/3 cup water
1 cup lukewarm milk
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 1/4 tsp instant yeast
3 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1-2 Tbsp Cornmeal Optional
Place all ingredients into your bread machine. Use the smaller amount of water in the summer, or during humid conditions; use the larger amount of water in winter, or if you’re in a dry climate.
Set your machine for basic white bread, light crust, 1.5 lb loaf. Check the dough halfway through the second kneading cycle; it should be soft, smooth and slightly sticky. Adjust the dough’s consistency with additional flour or water, if needed.
*Optional: If you wish to add cornmeal to give that true english muffin effect, remove the dough after either the final kneading or before the final rise and roll it in cornmeal. Place the dough back in the machine to rise and bake.
When the bread is finished, remove it from the machine/basket, and allow to cool.
