10+ Bread Machine Recipes That Aren't Loaves of Bread
You bought a bread machine to make your own loaves of fresh, plump, tender bread every week, but now that the novelty of that experiment has worn off, you're looking for another bread machine thrill. There's a world of other treats that can be made with the bread machine, none of which are strictly loaves of bread for the slicing. Cinnamon rolls, pizza crust, bagels, and more can come together in your bread machine, and as you've learned with your many bread loaves, that means the recipes will be equal parts delicious and easy.
Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns
Let the bread machine do the work for you, kneading the dough for these cinnamon buns to make the ultimate pull-apart goodie. Instant vanilla pudding is the secret ingredient, adding sweetness and moisture to each bun.
World's Easiest Bread Machine Pizza Dough
You'll never settle for store-bought crust again once you've whipped up this easy recipe. "My family thought they died and went to heaven," raves reviewer Kathy. "This made the most amazing homemade pizza and the crust was still very soft a few days later."
Bread Maker Doughnuts
Easy to share and oh-so easy to eat, monkey bread can be enjoyed as a dessert or an indulgent breakfast. Pro tip: The expanding dough may cause a little bit of the sugar syrup to overflow, baking it with a sheet pan underneath will help to avoid any major messes.
Bread Machine Bagels
Customize these bread machine bagels with your favorite toppings like poppy seeds, everything seasoning, or a sprinkling of asiago cheese. "This is the PERFECT bagel recipe," says Michigan Mommy. "My husband and I could not believe how delicious they were and they tasted better than our local 'Gourmet Bagel' shop."
Hot Cross Buns
A little more hands-off than traditional hot cross buns, this bread machine version tastes just as delicious. "The BEST recipe for Hot Cross Buns I've ever had," says reviewer MYFBIL. "I've used this recipe for years and had many people request the recipe."
Perfect for serving up with a fresh cup of coffee, this citrusy bread features orange zest in the dough and orange juice in the glaze.
Erin's Canadian Fried Dough
This Canadian specialty, sometimes also referred to as "beaver tails," is a thinner and more golden brown cousin to the American doughnut. "This recipe is passed down from my Nana who was famous for her doughnuts," says Erin. "This is one she would make us on a cold winters day after skating all day on the outdoor rink."
Dad's Orange Cardamom Breakfast Rolls
An entire orange goes into these rich breakfast rolls. Heavily spiced with fragrant cardamom and tart cranberries, they're perfect for serving up with a glass of freshly-squeezed orange juice.
Whole Wheat Bagels
Whole wheat baked goods are notorious for being too dense, but these bagels break that stigma. The bread machine helps, doing the majority of the kneading and rising for you.
