Since bread machines are my thing, I gathered 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.
But don’t blame your bread machine or bread maker. After all, it doesn’t have a brain. Instead, human intervention is usually 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 town. 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.
“Bread machines don’t have a brain.”
You’ll be amazed at how simple most of these recipes are. Even beginners will likely find success, especially if you read and follow all the tips.

“Thank you for helping making bread so easy!”
“I’ve made the Ciabatta bread, the french bread and today the buttermilk sandwich bread. They have all come out PERFECT! The recipes are easy to follow and I love that I can weigh the ingredients. My husband couldn’t get enough of the french bread. He told me not to lose the recipe since it was the best I’ve made since I have tried several different recipes and this was by far the best! Thank you!! Can’t wait to try some other of your recipes.”
“I have had to make all my bread, pizza, and roll doughs in my bread machines all the time now due to time constraints and your recipes have helped me make full use of my machines with good results. It was very helpful to realize I could do the dough in the machines and finish up in my oven, no holes in the bottom of the loaf, yay!!”

It depends. If you want excellent bread every time with the touch of one button (from start to finish in a bread machine while you sleep), you will most likely be disappointed. But if you are willing to combine your brain with the touch of your fingers and the kneading power of a bread machine, you can make almost any bread recipe out there with a bread maker.
