    I received a bread maker several years ago for a present. They were in vogue at that time and it was easy to find bread mixes at the market. Now they seem to be nonexistent. Does anyone still use a bread making machine or know where to find mixes or recipes online?

    I have a used bread machine that was given to me by a friend who longer wanted it. I found the owners manual & recipe book online. I have never used one of the mixes. I've only used the recipes from the machine's manual. Maybe you can look online?

    Both my grocery store and health food store have mixes. There are probably tons of recipes on-line.

    I never cared much for the mixes, I much preferred the taste of the from-scratch recipes that came with my machine - especially Honey-Oatmeal bread!

    If you're looking for "dump-n-go", you could always make up batches of your own mixes and stash them in Ziplocks for future use. I do this with pancake mix.

    Yumm - Honey Oatmeal sounds good. My favorite is "Triple Wheat", one of the recipes with the machine.

    I recomend King Arthur Flour's web site for recipes http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipe/

    I like to mix the dough in my breadmaker and then bake it myself. I love to make English Muffins and Bagels. I also make my favorite white bread recipe and then I "braid" three
    strands together, let it rise, brush with an egg wash and sprinkle with seseme or poppy seeds. People are so impressed wth homemade bread. I am not baking too much in this heat. But as soon as it cools off a bit I'll be back at it!

    My husband bakes bread from recipes in his breadmaking books all the time. He loves trying all the different kinds.

    This is where I buy all my ingredients to make a variety of breads as well. Nothing like fresh bread in the fall/winter months. :)

    The only bread we have is what I make in the breadmaker. Allrecipies.com is my second home after here. There are a ton of recipies online to be found and what I love about that site is that you can read everyones comments about their likes/dislikes of the recipe and all the tweaks that they did to improve on it if needed.

    I've also learned that AP flour makes just as nice of a loaf as the more expensive breadmachine types.

    I have a couple of books on making bread and I've found lots of bread machine recipes online. Buying the pre-packaged mix, to me, is like buying a store bought loaf of bread, which would probably be cheaper, although the couple of small grocery stores that we have do have a couple of different pre-packaged mixes.

    Yes, they are hard to find. I found one (the last one) at WM a few months ago. They said it was left over from the Holidays. You can go on www.oster.com and find one. Or, go to www.breadmaker.com My friend got her's there and cheaper than Oster. Good luck...I am getting ready to make some whole wheat loaves. Love the whole wheat bread. Mary

    I use any recipe I want to. I just adjust the amount of flour to keep it in line with what the machine can handle.
