This was fantastic!!! Ok I didn't use the egg powder (it grosses me out) and I used 1 pkg. of rapid yeast. They are so light and with a perfect texture. I shaped them into 6 large rolls and they're the perfect size for sandwiches.Also I cover them with a dish towle after they come out of the oven to keep the crust soft. I'm makeing another batch for tonights BBQ and shaping them into hot dog and hamburger rolls. I just added more oil water and flour to the recipe but not more yeast. We'll see how they come out.

Finally! I did it! I made a whole wheat bread that came out correctly. Thanks to the poster of this recipe. I didn't use my breadmaker as it's broken, so I kneaded it in my Kitchenaid Mixer w/the kneading attachment. First for 8 minutes, let rise for 50mins, then knead again for 8 minutes and let rise for 30mins, then cut and shape into 3 pieces and let rise again with a wet towel for 20mins. Stuck it into a preheated 375 oven for 20 minutes. Voila!! Perfect small baguettes for lunch. Read More

This was SO good! I almost gave up on my bread maker. The last few breads have caved in. I decided to try this one after hubby had a health scare (really high blood pressure). We need to change our eating habits. I used 1 egg white for the powdered egg 1 T splenda & 1 T sugar added flax & vital wheat gluten - 1T. Wonderful!!! Even hubby said it was delicious. I have noticed my machine seems to only work on rapid rise so that is the setting & yeast I used for this one. Read More

Perfect 1 pound whole wheat loaf. I used AP flour instead of the bread flour and whole wheat pastry flour instead of the whole wheat flour. We live at 4600 ft. so I add an additional 2 tbsp. of water and used slightly less than 1 tsp. yeast to keep the loaf from falling. The result was a very light and airy bread. Will definitely use this recipe often! Read More

the is by far the best recipe for bread machine. i was scared that the loaf will be too big for my small machine but it was just perfect. i did however make some changes i used 10 g of sugar and i added some dried herbs thyme oregano and basil for extra flavouring. i really reccomend this recipe.. oh also i didnt need to add extra flour or water. i am sure this will be a keeper ( )b Read More

This is a very good everyday bread recipe! I've made it four times in the past week and it has turned out perfect every time. I have stopped buying grocery store bread because of all the additives this recipe is so simple I know it by heart already. It's easy to throw the ingredients in the bread machine and go about my day without much time or effort. The size is perfect for getting sandwich-size slices for my kids and they love it toasted with butter too! The small loaf also requires I make a fresh loaf almost daily which my family appreciates. This will be my go-to daily bread recipe from now on. Read More

Good recipe (Thanks Scotdog for passing it along - AND for your tips). I didn't have powdered egg substitute so I went with one egg white (per SD) and I used 2 cups of soft-milled whole wheat bread flour instead of mixing the white/WW. I also added 1 Tbsp flax meal and 1 Tbsp of WW Gluten..made for a a very softy fluffy bread. I made it in the breadmaker on the dough setting as I like to bake my breads in the oven. Once done in the bread machine I rolled it out on the counter with a rolling pin and then rolled it up jelly roll style (like a French Loaf) and then let it rise for about an hour and then baked it...YUM! Pics coming to computer screen near you soon!:) Great recipe with Scotdog's tips next time I may add some chopped sunflower seeds or walnuts....hmmmm...so many choices! Read More
