The order they go in the bread maker is the order they are written in.First I spray the bread tin with Pam. Then put the warm water in, then sprinkle in the sugar and salt into the water and slightly slosh to mix, then add the vegetable oil. Next put the 3 cups of bread flour. and make a crater to put the yeast in the middle. Should look like this:

I have tried several brands of flour but this stuff is the bomb. I recommend it.

Here is a finished product
