Why I Love This Recipe

I use my bread machine to make the dough, but I shape the bread and then bake it in the oven.

This is my bread machine that I tweaked until it was what I wanted. Many frown on using a bread machine. However, when you are unable to knead the duogh it is perfect. You must still know the liquid to flour ratio to get a perfect dough. I am my 5th bread machine in the past 10 years.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
4 cups bread flour
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter margarine
1 1/3 cups water


Put ingredients in bread machine in reverse order listed.

Set on manual white bread. Timer may be set to have dough ready at a particular time. Or just press to start. In about 2 hours, your dough will be ready to shape into two loaves (32 slices), 8 hoagie buns, 8 large hamburger buns, 12 hot dog buns, 1 large loaf french bread or two small.

Let rise 45 minutes in warm place. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until as brown as preferred. Tops may be cut or decorated as you like. Enjoy.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

Wish I had a bread machine, your bread looks FABULOUS yum yum

What you have said makes perfect sense. I too make my dough in the machine but bake it separately in 2 or 3 tins. I love crusty loaves. Water to flour ratio is very very important and I learnt it the hard way! Much also depends on the time of the year, the weather, humidity etc.
