Lots of you guys do this. I bought a breadmaker a long time ago and used it once. I had big intentions when I bought it tho. I did something a little wrong, and it was just ok. It seems like a big process, there's so many instructions, different breads, etc. Does it get easier where you just "know" what to slap in there and where to put the dial?

i usually just throw the ingredients in and put it on the dough setting, it's done in 1.5 hours then I put it in a pan and let it rise for 20 minutes then cook it in the oven, we don't like the way it cooks in the bread maker.

It is super easy. I let the breadmaker do everything. We have a favorite recipe and I have it memorized so I don't have to look at the book anymore. The cycle takes 3 hours and 5 minutes. If I am home all day I will do 3 or 4 loaves. Then freeze them and we are good for awhile.

Different recipes are designed for different bread makers Kim. We had a Hinari and my parents had a Kenwood, many years ago. We experimented by testing out the Hinari recipes in the Kenwood and vice versa, and the verdict was... the Hinari recipes worked best in the Hinari and the Kenwood recipes in the Kenwood.

Shouldn't have been a surprise really. But we learned to use the recipes that come with the machine you have.

Kim the machine I have is a black and decker. The recipe I use is:
Put in one cup warm water and 2 tbsp veg or canola oil first
Add 2 tbsp sugar, 1.5 tbsp powdered milk, 2 tsp salt, 2 cups flour (I use Best for Bread flour) and 1.25 tsp yeast (I use the kind for breadmakers but I have just used regular before too and it was fine).

Mine has three settings for loaf size and I put it on the medium one for this amount of ingredients.

I don't have a breadmaker. I have two hands.

We've been using our bread maker lately too so it must be the season for bread making LOL but I hate the smell of it cooking as that yeasty smell gives me a bad head ache might have to put the machine out side!!

I love the smell too, but eating it makes me ill. Maybe you're sensitive to the yeast or the wheat Wen?
