Hey I just got a bread machine and I am loving every minute of it. Do you guys have any tested recipes that you would recommend I try. I am on the search for a few good ones and I have an excellent 11 grain bread recipe that has come out well.

This weekend I am going to try a chocolate bread, but don't entirely know if the recipe off the internet will work well. I tried a cheese bread recipe from the same site and the bread mushroomed out of the pan and down on to the heating element (to much bread or to much of a rise). It was very smokey in my kitchen, but delicious none the less.

But I am still amazed at this thing, it totally rocks!

I don't use ours very often and I should. While a bread machine might make purists cringe, it's a simple and quick way to make awesome bread.

I just started using my Kitchen Aide stand mixer to create pizza dough and am looking forward to making some bread recipes soon. Sorry but I have none to share at the moment. Have you tried checking FoodNetwork.com for recipes?

Good Luck.

Salute!

I have two and I still make bread the old fashioned way, and it ain't because of being purist.

Bread machines make fine sandwich breads, but it'll never hold a candle to a kitchenaid, time, and a real oven.

Ours was a lifesaver. We got hit with a bad snowstorm a few years back and the town was cut off. One of the things the stores were out of was bread. We were able to use the breadmaker to pop out a loaf (man that sounds bad) every couple of days. We even made some for our neighbors.

I agree... it's not as good as totally homemade, but it makes a decent bread.

I used the dough function to make a nice round sourdough loaf using the oven. The thing rose in 3 hours instead of the usual overnight. I consider that a win right there!

Homemade bread IS delicious...but since I work, the only way I can come home to the lovely smell of baking bread is with my bread machine. This is one of my absolute favorite recipes, it's from The Bread Machine Cookbook.

This is a great recipe and I used to make it all the time when I was in middle school. Thank you for the recipe!

I usually only make breads on the weekends.

There is only so much that a bread machine's knead cycle can do.

These are the same dough with different kneading techniques
