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.

Bread makers are fabulous kneading machines, so I only use the DOUGH cycle. After that, I take control, shaping the bread by hand and baking it in my conventional oven.

That’s what makes these the best bread machine recipes.

When using one of my recipes, you won’t need the user’s manual that came with your bread machine. Instead, I’ll guide you step-by-step as you use a bread machine to do what it does best. That’s what makes these the best bread machine recipes.

Every yeast bread recipe listed here includes shaping directions, pan size, oven temperature for baking, and baking time. Now, you can produce bread you will be anxious to eat and excited to share with your family and friends.

If you are having any specific issues with your bread, be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom for a list of posts you may find helpful.

No worries if you don’t have a bread machine or bread maker. Nearly all my recipes have alternate directions for stand mixers or making bread by hand.

Four Reasons Why These Recipes Will Be Your Favorite

When I bake bread, I want it to be worth the money, calories, and time! I can imagine you feel the same.

  1. The bread must taste fabulous, of course. Every recipe has been tested repeatedly.
  2. The bread must have a well-organized texture. (Stuffing the dough into a pan won’t do. Stuffing equals crumbs.)
  3. It must have a tender crust that is appropriately soft, tender, chewy, or crusty. Cardboard crusts are not worth the convenience of baking bread in a bread machine.
  4. It must be as beautiful as the bread you buy from the best bakery in town. My goal is to make bread I love and am excited to share with others. That’s what I want for you, too.

What Am I Doing Wrong?

If you make a lot of bread in your machine, you might have noticed it’s often too dense, tough, short, flat on top, lopsided, crumbly, ugly, etc.

When the ingredients are dumped into a machine, mixed, and then baked right there in the machine, it’s not always the best. Most of the time, it’s not good at all.

Don’t blame your bread machine or bread maker. After all, it doesn’t have a brain. Instead, human intervention is required to make the very best bread machine bread.

“Bread machines don’t have a brain.”

That’s right. (I hope I haven’t burst your bread machine dream.) Professional-quality yeast bread cannot be made from scratch from start to finish with the touch of a “START” button.

Does It Matter What Kind of Bread Machine I Use?

In my book, bread makers are the best kneading machine in town. So, I use them to mix and knead the dough.

You need a machine with a DOUGH cycle because that’s all you’ll use with my recipes. Whether it’s old or new isn’t a big deal as long as the motor is strong.

You don’t need a preheat cycle, multiple rest periods interspersed throughout the DOUGH cycle, or multiple options for recipes made with different flours.

Are you thinking, “Why do I even need a bread maker?”

Don’t return your bread machine just yet.

Bread makers are worth the money. Although you can use a stand mixer with all my yeast bread recipes, stand mixers have no timers or way of controlling the heat while your bread rises.

With a stand mixer, you must recognize when the dough has been properly kneaded and provide the proper environment for the dough to rise. However, a stand mixer would be the preferred choice if you plan to make many large batches of dough (more than 4 cups per recipe).

So, What’s the Secret To Making an Incredible Loaf of Bread with a Bread Machine?

The instructions are in every bread recipe. For example, look at this tutorial for making bread in a bread machine my way.

Meanwhile, here’s a birds-eye view of the five steps.

1. Select a good recipe. I don’t even bother with the recipes in the manual. Choose one below, or use a favorite recipe. With this method, most yeast bread recipes can be converted to use in a bread machine.

2. No matter what the recipe says, choose the DOUGH cycle. When the DOUGH cycle completes, remove the dough from the bread machine to a lightly floured work surface in your kitchen.

3. Shape the dough as directed. (Please don’t stuff the dough into a bread pan and stick it into the oven. The results won’t be pretty.)

4. Let the dough rise again after shaping (this is important if you don’t want a dense loaf!).

5. Bake the loaf in your preheated conventional oven. Don’t take it out until it’s perfectly baked throughout (use a quick-read thermometer (paid link) if needed) and golden brown all over.

Yes, You Can Make Good Bread with a Bread Machine

You’ll be amazed at how simple most of these recipes are. Even beginners will likely succeed, especially if you read and follow my tips.

You’ll find advanced recipes like Ciabatta, Bread Machine Brioche, or Bread Machine Sourdough with No Commercial Yeast. There is truly something for everybody.

Can I recommend the free bread machine course? It’s the perfect place to start for anybody who wants to make bread worth sharing with a bread maker.

Happy Bakers Speak Up

“Thank you for helping making bread so easy!”ANA

“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.” PATTY

“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!!”DIANA R.

Looking for Some Advice Regarding Your bread Maker?

FAQ About Bread Machine Recipes

Is a bread maker better than an oven?

A bread maker is one of the best dough-kneading machines in town. I love mine. But if you want bread as good or better than what you can buy from a bakery, you will need to bake your bread in a conventional oven that gets hotter than a bread machine. The texture and crust will be greatly improved when you use the machine to mix and knead the dough, then shape the dough by hand, let it rise on your counter and bake it in a preheated conventional oven.

Why is bread machine bread not fluffy?

The reasons for dense bread are many, but some of the more common ones include inaccurate measuring, unwise substitutions (too much whole wheat flour for white flour), or omission of important ingredients such as salt. If the ambient temperature is too warm or too cool, the timing of your bread machine may not work out right. Checking the dough as it kneads to see if you need more moisture or flour is very helpful. Remember, your bread machine does not have a brain.

Are bread makers a waste of money?

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.

If you have questions or suggestions, email me privately for a quick answer: Paula at saladinajar.com. Hope to see you again soon!

    I am looking for sourdough hot dog buns (preferably using discard because I have a TON) made in a bread machine.

    1. Hi Tracy,

      The closest recipe I have for that would be my sourdough dinner rolls. You could shape the dough like hotdog buns instead of dinner rolls. However, this is not really an enriched recipe, so the bread is chewy like a sourdough roll, not soft and squishy like the hotdog buns at an American supermarket.

  2. I wish you had a gluten free bread recipe. Thank you for all the info.

    1. Hi Marianne,
      The only bread recipes I have on the website that are gluten-free are these Greek Yogurt Waffles and Cheddar Cheese biscuits. In my opinion, bread machines don’t make gluten-free bread that is good enough to share. Better to use a stand mixer.

  3. Hi there, do you have any recipes for a dark rye bread? Or more specifically, dark rye and walnut? Thank you

    1. Hi Tanisha,
      I only have one recipe for rye bread. You could always add walnuts when your machine beeps for “add-ins.”

  4. Dear Paula,
    I bought my first bread machine I’m 1986. made bread and used timer to have fresh bread in the morning. I bought my second machine in 2012 to use as a mixing and kneading tool. I am 80 years old and use machine to mix dough for .Italian bread (150 year old family recipe), buns, pizza dough, garlic knots and I will be using your recipes to expand my choices.
    Thank you Paula for your wonderful site, recipes and thoughtfulness for your suscribers.

    1. Hi David,

      So nice to hear from you. Thank you for your kind words. Sounds like we are on the same track when it comes to bread machines. I hope you find some new recipes to try although it sounds like you already have a large collection of wonderful recipes. If you ever have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me.

  5. I agree with you 1000000% when it comes to using bread machine as my assistant for mixing and kneading dough – most of the time, it ends there, thank you my bread machine, I’ll take it from here. LOL.

    I read an article about the PROS and CONS of using a bread machine and the only CON listed was “lacks personalization”. Well, the personalization is restored if you take over after kneading – that’s how you take back ownership of your bread / cake / product, am I right? PS Love your website.

    1. Welcome Mickie,

      Thumbs up to everything you said!!

  6. I am a newbie at the bread machine, all the recipes look yummy. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Hi Rebecca,
      Welcome! I love beginners. I hope you fall in love with making bread.

  7. Mike Conrad says:

    Was hoping to find a great carrot bread recipe for my bread machine.

    1. Hi Mike,

      I specialize in yeast breads, so I don’t have any quick bread recipes for the bread machine on my website. So sorry.

  8. How do I get all of these recipes. In one book???

    1. Hi Fiona,
      At the moment, the only way to get these recipes is to print them individually. I have considered making a book but it hasn’t happened yet. Thanks for asking.

  9. Please tell the yeast measurement for bread machine yeast, instant yeast and active dry yeast. I have plenty of instant and active and don’t want to buy more when I know the measurements can be converted

    Is bread machine yeast the same as instant yeast? Some websites say it is. If so why not say so?

    1. Hi Kathleen,
      Nice to hear from you. See this post. And yes, bread machine yeast is the same as instant yeast. When baking one of my recipes, use instant yeast. The amount listed will always refer to instant yeast. Can’t speak for anybody else’s recipes.

  10. Hi Paula, I made your oatmeal with sunflower seed bread the other day. Absolutely wonderful!!! Making another loaf today. I was wondering if you have ever made Peanut Butter Bread. If so, could you post the recipe. Thanks so much. Keep the wonderful bread recipes coming. Love your site. Signed up for your email but haven’t gotten anything yet. Maybe this week.

    1. Hi Lynda,
      I’m so happy you like the oatmeal bread. Thank you for writing. You haven’t gotten anything yet after signing up for my email? I just checked and my records indicate you should have gotten the first letter today. Did you check your junk email?

      Funny you mention the peanut butter bread. I’m working on a 100% whole wheat bread that I decided to add a bit of peanut butter to it on a whim. I thought it mae it so much better. I am not quite ready to publish it but you should see it in the next few weeks. If you want to test it before I publish, just let me know and I’ll send it to you. Write me at paula at saladinajar.com.

  11. Hi Paula, I am so glad to find your site. Your recipes sound wonderful. I buy Rosemary Olive Oil bread at a specialty shop. I would like to be able to make something similar, I have tried a recipe I found online, but it wasn’t very good. I baked it in my machine, so maybe I will try it in the oven. I am also looking for a parmesan oregano bread recipe, I made years ago with my first machine. Thanks for your site.

    1. Hi Karen,

      Great to hear from you and welcome. I have a suggestion. Try my French bread recipe. It’s simple. Add rosemary if you like, or parmesan and oregano. I’m pretty sure it will be a hit for you.

  12. Paula, do you have a recipe for Ezekiel bread in a bread machine?

    1. Hi Mary,

      You are not the first person to ask. When I look at the ingredients in Ezekiel bread, there are so, so many. It doesn’t seem practical to buy all those ingredients for one or two loaves of bread. Most of them are present in minuscule amounts. My recipe for Cracked Wheat-Berry Bread is a simple bread with some whole grains and a great texture. You might give it a look. It’s not Ezekiel bread but easy to make at home and very delicious.

  13. 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

    1. 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.

      1. Hi Paula I love your sourdough bread recipe,do you think I could add cheese and jalapeños to it ? If so when would you add them and how much. Thank you
        P.s. please write a book !! 😉

  14. Margie Kaminski says:

    Paula, Do you have a book with these recipes? If not – I would hope you’re thinking about it! Thanks for all the help!

    1. Hi Margie,

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

    2. Debra Seals says:

      I see others have asked if you have written a book and you responded. You said you have no book. I would be front of the line if you change your mind. Think about it. Thank you.

      1. Thanks, Debra. Maybe someday. 🤔

  15. Hi Paula, do you have a recipe for katsiburry (I have no idea how to spell it, so I hope this will help). Thanks. Org

    1. 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?
