    Bread from bread machine Pics

    This is from a post on Chit Chat. I let the bread machine mix a double batch of dough and do a first rising. I took the dough out and kneaded for about 5 min by hand and shaped into loaves. Let rise again and baked. This is a sweeter bread, great for rolls. It makes a fantastic toast. In one loaf I rolled it out to a rectangle and spread cinnamon sugar and rolled it up, formed a loaf shape, let rise and baked. Here is the recipe I used.

    Basic White Bread
    2 c. warm water (not over 115)
    1 T. yeast ( I use active dry)
    2/3 c. white granulated sugar
    1/4 c. oil
    1-1/2 tsp. salt
    5 – 6 cups flour

    dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Put in bread machine and oil, flour, salt. Check machine to see if more flour is needed to knead in a smooth ball.
    Bake at 350 for 25 – 30 minutes or until the top is brown and sounds hollow when thumped.

    Your bread looks good!! I used to get a cinnamon bread at Costco that was a white bread with a swirl layer of cinnamon sugar. I would make french toast out of it and cook it in my Foreman grill. Was really good. Never heard of brushing evaporated milk on top. Will have to try it. Guess I had better dust off the old bread machine.

    I had the round butter keeper but it was too much trouble getting the cold stick of butter in it. LOL.

    The only problem with this is that I would sit and eat all the loaves myself and then I would be big as a horse. Looks delish. I've gotten in the baking mode. I made scones yesterday to share with a neighbor. Thanks so much for the recipe and hint.

    I usually bake all our breads. I think the better the ingredients the less weight gained or at least it's quality weight. I leave out 1/2 the sugar in most of the recipes though. I use King Arthur flour, organic eggs, aluminium free baking powder, Himalayan sea salt, safflower or expeller pressed coconut oil and distilled water. Even if we eat a lot of it, I know it's the ingredients are better for us. That's what I buy so nothing else to use but that.

    Breads

    Well, Even though I might be having a very hard time with my Breadman Breadmaker, I can make a decent loaf of bread. I tried this recipe today since my husband woke up at 4:30AM, I took it as an omen to bake some bread.
    I must say that this dough was very silky and nice to work with. It raised nicely except was slow on the second rise...which might be to the chilliness of our house. It baked in 30 mins and I took your advice and made one loaf with Cinnamon/Sugar bread.
    I did use all purpose flour and added Vital Wheat Gluten and some dry milk powder.
    Thank you and will add this to my bread recipes.

    I have pics but how do I upload them now?

    You are all starving me! Bread is my favorite food, but I am trying to lose a little weight. I will try this recipe as my reward when I get down a few pounds. Thanks.

    Yum! Will have to go and get some fresh yeast...mine has gone out of code. That happens to me pretty often. I get to making it often and then stop.

    My Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer also does a great job mixing and kneading bread and the recipe book that goes with it has several outstanding bread recipes.

    Lucky you!! I've had 3 different brands of bread machines and haven't gotten a decent loaf from any of them.

    Just dusted off my bread machine and today made a loaf of whole wheat bread. Much better than store bought. Thanks for your recipe.

    Keep your yeast in the freezer. It will last for years. I buy yeast in the bulk packages at Sam's Club and keep it in the freezer. I'm using yeast that has been in the freezer for over 2 years. Don't bake in your bread machine. Let the machine do the mixing and first kneading. Take the dough out an put in a covered oiled bowl and let rise in warm place. Punch down and knead a little in the bowl, pinch off dough and shape into rolls. Place on baking sheet, cover and let rise and then bake. It only takes a few minutes of hands on work if you let the machine do the big job.
