50+ Bread Machine Recipes To Make Any Occasion Special

No matter if it’s breakfast, dinner, or Christmas, homemade bread will transform any occasion from ho-hum to extraordinary. Since bread machines are my thing, I gathered up all of my best bread machine recipes into one place to make it easy for you.

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.

You can pretty much throw away your bread machine user’s manual when you use one of my recipes. I’ll guide you step-by-step on how to make bread successfully with a bread machine.

Why You Can Throw Away Your Bread-Machine Manual

When I bake bread, I want it to be the best. It has to be worth the trouble and all those steps 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 you can’t always blame the bread machine. After all, it doesn’t have a brain.

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.

“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. But you’ll also find some more advanced recipes like the Ciabatta above, Triple-Flavor Monkey Bread, or Bread Machine Brioche. There is truly something for everybody.

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?
