50+ Best Bread Machine Recipes To Make You Look Like a Pro

Preview: Check out this collection of the best bread machine recipes you can mix up in your bread machine or bread maker. Most are easy. A few are advanced.

Since bread machines are my thing, I gathered up all of my best bread maker recipes into one place to make it easy for you. No more scouring the web for mind-numbing hours looking for a recipe that may or may not be good.

You won’t need the user’s manual you got with your bread machine when you use one of my recipes. I’ll guide you step-by-step on how to make the best bread machine recipes while using a bread machine to do what it does best.

No worries if you don’t have a bread machine or bread maker as some call them. Nearly all of my recipes have alternate directions for stand mixers, food processors, or making bread by hand.

If you are looking for a specific recipe but don’t see it here, please send me an email (address below). I’ll add it to my list. A good number of the recipes you see here were created and tested in response to a reader request.

How to get the best bread when using a bread machine:

When I bake bread, I want it to be the best. It has to be worth the trouble and all those steps it takes to burn up the calories.

When the ingredients are dumped in a machine, mixed, and then baked right there in the machine, it’s not always the best. Many times, it’s downright awful.

But don’t blame your bread machine or bread maker. After all, it doesn’t have a brain. Human intervention is often required to make the very BEST bread that tastes good, looks good, and compares favorably with anything you can buy at a bakery.

In my book, bread makers are the best kneading machine in the world. So I use them to mix and knead the dough. When the dough cycle completes, grab the dough and work it into the shape of your choice.

Let it rise and stick it in your oven. Don’t take it out until it’s perfectly baked throughout (use a quick-read thermometer if you need to) and golden brown.

I am looking for a persimmon bread machine recipe... All the searches yielded to oven made recipes. Hopefully, you have experimented on a bread machine and would like to share

Hi Susan,

I'm curious to try this. Have you made a persimmon bread recipe that you liked? If so, send it over and I'll convert it for you. Almost any regular bread recipe can be mixed up and kneaded in a bread machine, then baked in the oven. That's the way I do ALL my bread. If you want to try to convert it yourself, see this post for more help.

Here's another thought: I have a wonderful banana yeast bread recipe I make with a bread machine (but I do bake it in the oven for a superior loaf). I wonder if you could substitute persimmons for bananas.

Hi Margie,

Thanks for your kind words. No book. But I do print them off and keep them in a special box.

Hi George,

I have never heard of "katsiburry." Google evidently hasn't heard of it either so I'm at a loss. Can you describe it?
