    Bread machine recipes

    I have white bread down pat and have been experimenting with other flours for my Cuisinart bread machine. Some have been a total failure. It's disappointing to wait 4-5 hours and then have to throw the final product away! Does anyone have a good, basic, no-fail recipe for whole wheat or rye bread?

    Not a bread machine devotee, but, I know it has something to do with yeast and water temperature....I gave up, made too many bowling balls!

    No-fail whole wheat bread: I mix mine in the Hobart, (Hobart = commercial kitchen aid mixer), Knead with a dough hook for 12 min, then drop it in the bread machine to rise and cook. without extensive kneading, whole wheat will come out heavy, even cake-like....yucky.

    Hi ,just use your bread machine up to the dough cycle, remove it, let it rest and knead out the air bubbles if any. Grease a bread pan put in dough and let the dough rise covered 30 to 45 minutes until it is an inch above the pan. Heat oven to 350 and bake 25 to 30 minutes, covering the last 15 with foil if it's getting too brown. If you google baking bread machine dough in the oven you will see lots of ideas. I do it this way all the time because I did not like the hole from the paddle in my bread.

    I do this too, with amazing results. I have a Cuisinart too and think the brown cycle comes out too done IMHO even on the lite setting. I also don't like the hole left when the paddle is removed. Try it, you'll like it!!!!

    My vote is with CheeseCat and EmiliasNana. I have been using my grandmother's white bread recipe since forever for all sorts of purposes together with modifications on the simple recipe and creating the dough by using my bread machine to the end of the dough cycle, forming whatever shape I wanted, letting it rise, glazing the bread, and baking.

    One of the modifications to the basic white bread recipe came out of a number of my bread books: replace varying amounts of white bread flour withwhole wheat or rye flour. Voila: whole wheat or rye bread. Check out the King Arthur Flour site and take a shot at it.

    Lastly, recently I made a huge discovery. I needed to make 6 loaves of bread in a very short period. Under normal conditions, that would have taken me roughly 3 hours a loaf. What I did was add 2 more bread machines. Yes, bms get expensive so I hit thrift stores and a friend who wanted to get rid of hers. The friend gave me hers and gets a Christmas Bread Braid for the duration. The third was a thrift store find - $6. The discovery is 3 loaves in 3 hours if you load and activate the machines one after the other. The time lag is just enough to get each machine's dough to the next step before the following machine is ready for the same activity.

    Enjoy bread baking. Alert: your talent will become known and much appreciated - another star in your crown. You will accrue a bunch of wonderful stories.

    If you would like to have my basic recipe, etc., please let me know.

    As a Canadian snowbird I have trouble making bread with some brands of American flour. You need a harder wheat to make good bread.
