Bread Maker Recipes?

MaryJune 6, 2001

Hi All,

I'm new to this forum, and think it's really great. I was just wondering in anyone had some really good recipes for a bread maker. I've tried some from my book, but they aren't quite as good as I thought they'd be.

Thank you!

Mary

Besides using my crockpot my second favorite helper in my kitchen is my bread machine. They both help keep my kitchen cool in the summer. Here is one of our favorites. We use it often and I also make it in the dough cycle to roll out for pizza dough or dinner rolls.

White Bread
(Place all ingredients in bread machine in order given.)
water 1 cup
margarine or butter 3 tbs.
egg 1
sugar 2 tbs.
salt 1 1/2 tsp.
flour 3 1/2 cups (spread out with a knife to cover the liquid)
nonfat dry milk 1/3 cup
yeast 2 tsp.

Use the basic cycle of your machine.
On Sundays, I prepare a stew or roast in the crockpot, set up the bread machine, and also prepare the coffee maker so all I have to do is turn on the coffee maker when we get back from church. When we get home from church the house smells great and the rush is alleviated.

Don't be afraid to check the progress of your dough about 5 minutes into its cycle. If the dough seems too sticky add a tablespoon or two of flour or if its too dry add a tablespoon or two of water and check again. Don't be afraid to reset the cycle to the beginning if you have made several adjustments. Sometime the humidity in the air affects the texture of your dough. Bon appetit!

One of our favorite bread recipes was given to me by a friend. This is the only one I make now.

Quick Potato Bread

1 1/3 cup water
3 Tbl. butter or margarine
2 Tbl. + 1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup instant potato flakes
3 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tsp. yeast

Use the basic cycle on light crust. Place ingredients in bread maker according to instructions.
This makes the best toast with home made jelly. What a way to start the day. Enjoy!

Note: if you go to 'baker of the month' and check the previous month's winners, the November recipe is mine!

I love whole-grain bread--but light ones, not brick-hard ones. The best thing we ever did for the quality of our whole grain breads was getting a grain mill. We buy whole grain wheat berries (cheap!) and just toss them in the mill. In about 15 seconds we have fresh, nutrition-packed flour, that is so much moister and lighter than anything you can buy. I used to always add about 50% white flour to all of my whole-grain recipes, because they were too dense, but now I add just a little, or none, and I love the results.

Grain mills vary a lot in the quality of flour they produce (how fine the flour will be ground), and time it takes to grind it. I have a Whisper Mill, which I highly recommend. The link below talks about the nutritional benefit of grinding your own grain, and compares several grain mills.

Sunshine Amy,
I been thinking of getting a grain mill for awhile, but wonder: Where do you purchase your wheat? Are you able to get it locally or do you order it (and if so, from where?)? I know it would be more nutritious and tasty, but I want to make sure I have a good source of grain before purchasing a mill. Thanks! Valerie

This is nothing fancy and even though there are little ingredients but makes an excellent white bread. I like it because it leaves out the extras and it doesnt stick either.
Put in pan in order given
1 cup plus 1T warm water
3 cups flour, tap sides of pan to settle
1 t salt
make shallow well in center and add 1 T yeast
I usually bake rapid or regular on medium
