Bread Machine Recipes
Per request in newsletter, recipes for Bread machines. I have made all of these. If you read my notes at the bottom of each recipe you will see changes or comments I've made. I too have an Oster and it makes a 1 1/2 lb - 2 lb.loaf. My 2# loaf was really too big for the machine although it did make it. I think a 1 1/2 lb loaf size is the best. If you note my notes on one of the recipes, it only makes a small loaf and unless you either double it or make it 1 1/2 times the original recipe, it will not do well in that machine. Also, although I love rye bread, I know some people don not. Note one of these, I've made and given to people who don't like rye and they loved it. So don't be put off it you think you don't like 'rye bread."
I have several other bread machine recipes I've collected that really looked good, but have not tried them yet.

Steakhouse Wheat Bread for the Bread Machine Recipe

3/4 cup warm water
1 Tbs. butter (softened)
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. coffee granules (instant)
1 Tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tbs. white sugar
1 cup bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 tsp. bread machine yeast

Place the warm water, butter, honey, salt, coffee, cocoa, sugar, bread flour, whole wheat flour, and bread machine yeast in the pan of a bread machine in the order listed. Put on regular or basic cycle with light crust.

suggested to add 2 Tbs. each of bread flour and wheat flour.

I made this with the added flour. This recipe is too small for my machine and it burnt on the sides and bottom. Next time try doubling or 1 Ĺ times the ingredients.


Rye Bread Bread Machine
This one is my favorite for Rye Bread

1 cup rye flour
2 3/4 cups bread flour
1/3 cup brown sugar (I use the granulated type)
2 tsp. caraway seeds
1 1/2 tsp. salt (I use kosher salt)
2 Tbs. butter
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 1/2 tsp. dry yeast

Bring all ingredients to room temperature and add to bread machine baking pan, in order suggested by manufacturer.

Select basic setting (I use basic setting, medium size, light crust) and push Start.


Rye Bread - Basic

1 cup plus 2 Tbs warm water
2 Tbs. dark molasses
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
2 cups Hodgson Mill Best for Bread Flour
1 1/2 cups Hodgson Mill Rye Flour
3 Tbs. brown sugar, packed
1 Tbs. cocoa powder
3/4 tsp Caraway Seeds
2 tsp Hodgson Mill Fast Rise Yeast

Place ingredients in the pan according to your machineís directions. Set for Whole Wheat cycle with light crust setting.
Makes 1-2 lb. loaf

This was good, dense and chewy but didnít taste much like Rye bread. Made in the bread machine it makes a really tall loaf of bread.

I didn't use the brand mentioned. I usually use White Lilly brand flours.


Bread Machine Favorite Potato Bread Recipe

2 pound loaf

1 and 1/2 cups water
2 Tbs. butter, (softened)
2 tsp. salt
4 cups bread flour
4 tsp. sugar
1/2 cup instant potato flakes
2 1/2 tsp. active dry yeast

1) Measure and add liquid ingredients to the bread pan.

2) Measure and add dry ingredients (except yeast) to the bread pan.

3) Use your finger to form a well (hole) in the flour where you will pour the yeast. Yeast must NEVER come into contact with a liquid when you are adding ingredients. Measure the yeast and carefully pour it into the well.

4) Snap the baking pan into the bread maker and close the lid.

5) Press "Select" button to choose the Basic setting.

6) Press the "Crust Color" button to choose light, (1L)

This was good but made a huge loaf. It literally came to the top of the bread machine while baking. The 2nd time I just used the dough cycle and baked it in the oven. Baked at 375 for 30 minutes in a bread pan.

You could probably cut this recipe by 1/4 and it would come out better in the machine
