I am in love with my bread machine. If you have one but don’t use it, I hope I can inspire you to dust it off and give it another try.
My philosophy about bread machines…
Bread machines are good, but they don’t have brains.
I only use a bread machine for what it does best: mixing and kneading the dough. After the first rise (the end of the dough cycle), I pull the dough out of the machine, shape it, let it rise, and bake it in my conventional oven.
This gives me more control over the final product and flexibility with the shape. It’s the best of both worlds.
