i do basic bread at work -need your input

November 9, 2015 - 12:24pm -- breadfuji

almost daily, I make a 2 lbs French loaf Bread in the office kitchen to share with everyone. nothing fancy, The ingredients are simple and so is the process-trying to keep it simple. We cut the loaf into slices and spread butter and its gone in no time.  I place the ingredients in the machine right before leaving for the day, set the timer and magically we have fresh bread in the morning (12 hrs delay start). we love it !  BTW-we are all IT nerds so we know nothing about cooking and love bread or cake or ...

the ingredients:

1.5 tea sp. SALT

2.0 table sp. SUGAR

I've been gifted a breadmaker! - Help!!

October 30, 2015 - 3:57pm -- lizziepee

Hi - new to the site :-)

I've been gifted a used Sunbeam Breadmaker (model 5837-33) by someone who knows nothing about it.

I was thrilled to receive it and expected to be able to find manuals, etc., on the internet. Unfortunately that is not the case and I don't know where to start with using it.

There are no options for loaf size so I assume it only makes on size, but which one? The bread pan looks a good size.

Does anyone have this machine or suggestions for figuring it out? I don't want to waste a lot of ingredients getting it wrong.

Adapting recipes for bread maker

October 15, 2015 - 10:57am -- terysav

I'm new to this site so- hello! 

Hoping for some advice. I have baked cakes for several years, venturing every now and then into the realm of bread. Recently my partner and I moved onto our boat, so we have just bought a bread machine to conserve gas, have bread available even when we're sailing somewhere remote, and to reduce the amount of time the oven is on in the heat (the boat heats up very quickly! ).

Any feedback appreciated on this Bread Machine recipe

Hey there I've got a pretty good basic breadmaker recipe but if anyone has any suggestions to improve it would be much appreciated. I'm using the breadmaker because total prep time is 7mins you can't beat that. I know making by hand would produce a better result but I just don't have time to be doing that everyday. I have thought of using the breadmaker to mix & knead the bread and then put in the oven to finish, what are your thoughts on this and does it produce a much better shape/result?
