2 tablespoons             Orange juice concentrate     3 tablespoons

4 teaspoons               Nonfat Dry milk              2 tablespoons
2 cups                    Bread flour                  3 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons           Bread machine yeast          2 teaspoons
Use the 1-pound recipe if your bread-machine pan holds 10 cups or less of water. Add ingredients to the bread machine pan in the order suggested by the manufacturer, adding the Orange Juice Concentrate with the liquid. To measure 1/2 an egg, lightly beat egg before measuring; one-half egg is equivalent to 2 tablespoons. Adjust dough consistency -- (see Adjusting Dough Consistency tip below).

Recommended cycle: Basic/white bread cycle; light or medium/normal crust color setting, or as desired. Remove bread from pan, cool on wire-rack.

Tip: Checking Dough Consistency:
Check dough after 5 minutes mixing; if should form a soft, smooth ball around the blade. If dough is too stiff or dry, add additional liquid, 1 teaspoon at a time, until dough is of the right consistency. If dough is too soft of sticky, add additional bread flour, 1 teaspoon at a time.
