Our 20 Best Recipes for Your Bread Machine
If you're looking for a fun and easy baking project to tackle this weekend, it's time to dust off your bread machine (or purchase this best-seller from Cuisinart). While making loaves of bread by hand can be rewarding, it's also laborious and time consuming. A bread machine helps on both counts, by doing all the mixing, rising, and baking for you. Use yours to make homemade loaves of bread, cinnamon rolls, bagels, and more. Put this kitchen workhorse to use with our best bread machine recipes.
Clone of a Cinnabon
Save yourself some cash by making your favorite food-court treat at home. Reviewer Mary Kay Davignon says, "I've tried lots of cinnamon roll recipes over the years trying to get that perfect one, and this one may be it!"
Best Bread Machine Bread
Sweet Dinner Rolls
"This dough makes wonderful dinner rolls," says recipe creator Donna West. "Mix it in your bread machine but bake the rolls in the oven. They're light, soft and sweet." Never use store-bought rolls again!
Jo's Rosemary Bread
This savory bread is just begging to be dipped in olive oil. "If you've ever been to Macaroni Grill, this bread is a duplicate," says reviewer TANG_92.
Cinnamon Rolls III
"I had never made cinnamon rolls from scratch before this weekend when I tried this recipe," says reviewer Louise Maxine."These are great and easy even for a beginner like me!"
Reviewer LYNLOR says, "Having never made Baguettes before, I was amazed at these results...and the time it took to produce them from start to finish was equally amazing!" Enjoy these baguettes straight out of the oven, and then use them for a sub sandwich the next day.
Whole Wheat Honey Bread
"This bread is my family's standby...we haven't bought bread in several months! It's wonderful to see my loved ones eating such healthy bread, and it's very easy to make in the bread machine," says reviewer Flannery.
Light Oat Bread
"I was leery of the oats as my children questioned lumpy bread, but somehow, the oats magically disappeared," says reviewer SNOBSTER. "It has a great crust and is easily cut for sandwiches!"
Bread Machine Bagels
Personalize these homemade bagels with whatever topping you'd like. Reviewer SWELLSVILLE says, "My husband said if he didn't know I made them, he would have thought they came from the bagel shop!"
White Bread For The Bread Machine
Feeling nostalgic for that white sliced bread you enjoyed with peanut butter and jelly as a kid? Achieve the same thing at home with your bread machine. Reviewer Jenn says, "This was the best white bread recipe I have had so far! It came out so soft and stayed soft as well!"
Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine
"My family and I loved this bread, my husband is Italian and he loves bread," says reviewer Dolce Cuoco. "We go to a little local Italian shop where they make fresh bread and it is amazing, this recipe came very close to it."
Bread Machine Rolls
These big, fluffy dinner rolls can also be used as sandwich buns. Reviewer YMATLOSZ says, "These are awesome! I feel justified in keeping my bread machine now."
Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns
"What caught my eye was the addition of the pudding mix to the dough," says reviewer Mollycurls77. Instant pudding mix takes these cinnamon rolls to another level.
Bread Machine Pizza Dough
Bread machines are for more than just bread. Make homemade pizza totally from scratch, starting with the dough! Reviewer Michigan Mommy says, "This is probably the best bread machine pizza crust I've ever made, and we make a lot of homemade pizza! I really love this recipe and will use it as our regular pizza night dough. I don't know what the best part of this dough is, the fact that it is too silky soft but not sticky and really easy to work with, or the perfect flavor and texture after baking!"
Honey Of An Oatmeal Bread
"Our family goes through a loaf of this every day. Slightly sweet, and light. Great with dinner, and a favorite for sandwiches," says recipe creator Merrilee. Simply dump your ingredients in the bread machine and let it do the rest.
"My husband's ancestors were Amish and Mennonite," says recipe creator SHOOSEYQ. "This delicious recipe is adapted from an old Amish recipe, but made in the bread machine."
Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls
Recipe creator SEEFREE says these country-style sandwich rolls freeze well too. Reviewer mom26 says, "This recipe has earned a permanent spot in my recipe file! Delicious and versatile — I've rolled and cut them and made them into dinner rolls or shaped them into hoagie buns."
Portuguese Sweet Bread I
Reviewer RMN4 says, "Our entire family has been loving this bread! Not too sweet, with a nice medium/light crumb — simple recipe just as it is!"
Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread
Seed lovers will enjoy the added texture and flavor that comes from flax seeds and sunflower seeds. "I used the dough cycle on my bread machine, kneaded, shaped into a loaf, and let it rise for about 1/2 hour. I then baked it at 350 degree F in the oven for 30 minutes... AHHHH....the aroma! Yummy," says reviewer Marie Lutsky.
"This is a great recipe — excellent bread. Instead of making two loaves, I made one and buns out of the remainder of the dough. Only cooked the buns for 13 minutes. One of the best bread machine recipes I've seen," says reviewer THIN MAN.
