Baking with My Bread Machine

I love to experiment and I get to a lot with my baking. I came across a great deal on this bread machine so it came home with me. I enjoy finding recipes and playing around with them.

The one I use the most is this one:
3/4 cup of water or milk
1 tablespoon of oil
1 tablespoon of honey
1 tablespoon of gluten
1 cup of white bread flour
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoon bread machine yeast

I add it to my machine adding the liquids first then the dry ingredients. I set my machine for 2 hours and 15 minutes.

This is this recipe in my machine:

I like to change up the recipe. For example, I will use cold coffee for the liquid and I will add some instant coffee crystals. Or raisins or nuts are added from time to time. There are kazillions of variations that can be used. Chocolate bread is another possibility among many many more. 

If I want white bread for grilled cheese sandwiches, I'll add 2 cups of white flour and garlic salt and shredded cheese. It tastes great with pasta. 

I highly recommend using a bread machine, you get to select the flavours and ya never know when you'll discover a new fav recipe! Plus is smells AMAZING while it is baking! 

Happy Baking!


  1. Thank you for the recipe, I might try it, but I don't have a bread machine. So I'll do it manually.

    This is great! I'm now thinking of different ways to be creative when it comes to ingredients.

  2. You're welcome and it is my pleasure! I love to experiment, it's fun!
