Bread Machine White Bread

This recipe was submitted by the famous Deanna Ronco (I will soon have to post her strawberry jam recipe, it's is delicious!)....If the bread is as great as she is, it will be wonderful! I am going to make it ASAP.

White Bread for breadmaker (makes one 1-1/2 lb. loaf)
1-1/2 tsp. yeast
1 c. warm water
4 TBSP. sugar

Combine in bread pan, and let sit for 5 minutes to let yeast foam. Then add, in this order:
3 c. flour
1 egg
4 TBSP. butter (cut into each corner)
1 tsp. salt (don't let it touch the yeast because it will kill it)

For wheat bread, substitute half the white flour for wheat.
