Thanks for bumping this thread, or else I would not have seen it. I'll def. have to try that recipe!

I bought a bread machine last November and have not bought a loaf of bread yet. I like the recipes on KingArthurflour.com. Find the soft sandwich rolls. It takes about 5 hours to make them, but are very good. Another source is recipezaar.com. Search out Soft As Wonder Bread. Very good sandwich bread, toasts very well. Also on recipezaar.com, very good recipes for english muffins, bagels, pita pockets, wraps.

Today I told DH I wish we never bought the machine. LOL I was tired and needed to make rolls for lunches.

Here you go:

Now don't you feel a little ripped off? I don't know how they can sleep at night selling that stuff and acting like they are saving you from slaving in the kitchen.

Bread Machine French Bread

This is an easy crusty French Bread recipe. It makes a 2 pound loaf. For diabetics, 1 slice/serving is 2 carbs or equal to 2 slices of bread. I've never had a bad loaf with this recipe. I like it because it uses all purpose flour, which is cheaper than bread flour.



Ingredients:

1 1/3 cup warm water
1 1/2 Tbsps olive oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsps sugar
4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp yeast

Place warm water in your bread pan, making sure your kneading paddle is in place. Add Olive oil, salt, and sugar in this order. Add flour, covering the liquid. Make a small indentation in the center of the flour, but not deep enough to reach the liquid. Add the yeast to the indentation. (adding the ingredients in this order is important, especially when using the timer. It keeps the yeast away from the liquid ingredients until it is time to knead them together. Liquid ingredients will prematurely activate the yeast). Now you are ready to set your bread pan in the machine and set the timer, or choose French Bread Cycle.

What kind of bread machine do you all have?

I've been looking at them and trying to decide. Is one better than another or are there special features, etc that I should look for?

I see ALOT at yard sales and wonder if they are bad or ? Willing to buy new or used but would like to know what I am buying.

Here is a link for an article about the bread I make. The article is kind of long but the artisan bread is inexpensive, easy to make and is the best bread ever. I don't even use my bread machine anymore. The dough can sit in the fridge for up to 2 weeks so you can make it and pull off enough to make a loaf whenever you need it. The recipe is from the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.

Nevergrow'nup: I have a Sunbeam machine from Walmart. It works great. I know that there are probably better brands that cost more. My thought on expensive kitchen toys is this: I will buy a cheaper alternative until I PROVE TO MYSELF that I will use it and the cost of the more expensive ones are worth it. The Sunbeam costs $40 or $50 at Walmart, so not too expensive. But I have learned to make bread, rolls, pizza dough. All sorts of stuff. I stopped buying bread back in November. I just freeze what won't get used in a day or so. Without preservatives, bread goes bad fast.

Your linky is missing, but I just got that book yesterday and can't wait to try it!

My first machine was a Regal. I bought it at a yard sale- think I paid $10. Someone threw out the paddle so I was without a machine for a while. Then I bought a brand new Sunbeam at another yard sale. It is phenomonal. I want to make bread every day now. I made hamburger buns for the first time last week and they turned out very nice. They look just like the buns I used to buy at the store for $.40 each. I made 9 for about $.20 total.

RE: getting fluffy bread in a breadmaker - one tip I learned was to put a tablespoon of lemon juice into the mix - you cannot taste it, but every time I've made bread this way, it's turned out beautifully (and I have old yeast - 'cause I go through phases of making bread and not making it...)

I like www.recipezaar.com for their bread recipes. The absolute BEST one - the one I get LOADS of compliments on (as well as requests for the recipe) is the Outback Style Honey Wheat. Holy moley that bread is good!! (I've made it as a loaf in the breadmaker, but I've also made rolls or mini loaves after using the breadmaker to make the dough...)

Here are some others:
Country White Bread or Dinner Rolls (Bread Machine)
Honey Oat Bran Bread


I also have (handwritten, at home) recipes for "Sticky buns" (cinnamon rolls with a caramel top instead of white icing, Swedish Rye bread and Swedish Coffee cake (which you braid - it's cool looking and yummie!)

Just found this thread I have a Sunbeam bread machine (1.5 & 2lb loaves).

I have been baking bread lately and one of our favorites is to use a general whole wheat recipe and add some diced kielbasa and just a bit of cheddar cheese to the mix, You can swap out the liquid with some beer.
Adding dill and some dried onion to rye bread is also yummy. You can make a nice veggie bread by adding a pack of dried veggie soup mix to white or whole wheat breads.

I use Red Star bread machine yeast that I keep in the freezer along with my dried milk (bring the measured amount to room temp before adding to the machine) and have never had a problem, the loaves rise beautifully.

Here are two recipes that I found on the net. They are great. Super soft!

Soft as Wonder Bread:
Ingredients
• 1 cup water (room temp.)
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 3 tablespoons margarine
• 1 tablespoon honey
• 3 cups all-purpose flour
• 1/4 cup powdered milk (not skim)
• 2 teaspoons sugar
• 1 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
Directions
Add ingredients in order given (this is for my machine, your's maybe different).
Select dough cycle.
When done, take out dough and on a floured surface, shape into loaf and place in loaf pan. (I try to work it as little as possible).
Let rise in a warm place for approximately 40 minutes until doubled in size.
Bake on centre rack of preheated 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.
Cool on wire rack before slicing.

Soft Sandwich Rolls
2 1/2 teaspoons regular instant yeast or active dry yeast*
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/4 cup potato flour OR dried potato flakes
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon lukewarm water (potato water, if you have any saved)
3/4 cup lukewarm milk
3 tablespoons butter, softened or melted
*The recipe directions are written for instant yeast; to use active dry yeast, dissolve it in the potato water first. Also, be aware that your rising times will be longer.

To make dough by hand or mixer: In a large bowl, whisk together the yeast, sugar, salt, flour and potato flakes. Add the water, milk and butter, and beat until smooth. Knead the dough on a lightly oiled surface till it's smooth and supple. Add flour if you must, but the dough will continue to absorb liquid as you knead, so try to knead for 5 minutes or so before adding any additional flour. Remember, the more flour in the dough, the heavier and dryer the rolls will be.

Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and set the dough aside to rise till doubled in bulk, 1 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on the warmth of your kitchen.

To make dough in a bread machine: Place all of the ingredients into the pan of your bread machine, program the machine for Manual or Dough, and press Start. Assess the dough about 10 minutes before the end of the second kneading cycle; add additional water or flour as necessary to produce a smooth, supple, somewhat soft dough.

To complete the rolls: Divide the dough into eight pieces. Shape each piece into a smooth ball, and flatten the balls till they're about 4 inches in diameter, trying to keep the tops of the rolls smooth; the nicer the top looks at this point, the nicer it will turn out to be once it's baked. Drape the rolls with lightly greased plastic wrap, and set them aside to rise till they're very puffy, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Bake the rolls in a preheated 350°F oven for 20 to 22 minutes, or until they're golden brown. Remove them front he oven, set them on a wire rack to cool, and spray them with butter-flavored pan spray, if desired (or brush them with melted butter or margarine). This will give the rolls a soft crust. When the rolls have cooled completely, store them in an airtight container. Yield: 8 rolls.

pizza dough?

I've had a craving for crazy bread. I know it's pizza dough, cut into strips, baked and basted with margerine, garlic and parmesan cheese. Now I need a great recipe for pizza dough I can make in my machine. Any suggestions?
