  1. Your bread machine might have come with a recipe book, which is normally adapted to it. Otherwise, you might want to search their web site or google and adapt the recipes to your needs.

        Hi Antilope,

        Forgive me for revising an old, old thread, but I wanted to thank you for this list. I just bought a bread machine and wanted to find a definitive soft and light white loaf that could be the base for my eventual soft wheat sandwich loaf.

        Starting at the top of your list, I found the Best Bread Machine Bread at the top of the Allrecipes group and decided to start there. It worked! So easy!

        I've never made a sandwich loaf in my entire life that was light enough to be a daily bread. They were always too heavy. The Allrecipes bread might even be too fluffy. But that's ok, because when I start adding whole wheat I think it will be just fine.

        So, thank you for the list. I'll have fun working through it. :-)


      2. The King Arthur Flour site has dozens of recipes. You can make them with any type of flour, but they will turn out better with King Arthur. I am not affiliated, just a fan.

          I'm just wondering if you ever made the Tomato Bread for the bread machine from the King Arthur site? The ingredient list sounds sort of "off" to me, but I'm a novice bread baker. Alternatively, does anyone have a good tomato bread recipe?

          1. re: CookingGirl

            I've never made it, but it looks to me as though it will turn out well.

        2. i use the dough setting on my bread machine to make pasta dough, dumpling wrapper dough and steamed bun does that gradual mixing of wet and dry ingredients that i often don't have the patience for. also, i run the knead cycle a few times if i really want to build some gluten...saves me a ton of time and energy. of course, i still have to run the dough through the pasta stretcher/cutter or roll out the dmpling or bun wrappers...don't think i've ever actually made any bread with it though...:o)

            ooh, would you mind sharing your recipes for bread machine dumpling wrapper and pasta doughs? i've quit making bread in my machine (love handmade results much better), and it's sitting idle. thanks!!

            1. re: sogi

              xiao long bao wrappers:
              3/4 c high gluten flour
              1/3 c less 1 tbsp water
              1 tsp peanut oil
              1/3 c AP flour
              1/4 c boiling water
              flour for dusting

              Start dough cycle on bread machine and add 3/4 c of high gluten flour, 1/3 c less 1 tbsp water, and peanut oil.

              Place the plain flour in a mixing bowl. In a small saucepan bring 1/4 c of water to a boil. Add 1/3 c plain flour and move the saucepan away from the flame, stirring the flour vigorously with a wooden spoon. Leave it to cool a little before throwing in to the bread machine to combine w/ the high gluten dough. I like to run it through a couple of kneading cycles to ensure a chewy wrapper.

              After the cycle is finished, dust w/ flour and cover with plastic wrap. Rest for 4 hours.

              3 c. flour
              2 eggs
              1 tsp salt
              1tsp olive oil

              Place flour in bread machine and start the dough cycle. In a bowl, beat eggs together w/ salt and olive oil. Pour into bread machine and have the bread machine knead the dough for a couple of cycles. After the dough has come together, add a little water if it seems too sticky, or more flour if it seems dry. Remove from bread machine once it has stopped kneading. Dust with flour, wrap in plastic and rest for an hour or so.

          2. Oh I do! I actually asked for a bread machine for Christmas last year (one of the baby bread makers...such a great idea!) just so I could make this. My stepmom got the recipe from a bread machine cookbook and I used to make it all the time growing up. I was missing it and now I make it...all the time! :D

            "San Diego Sunshine Bread"
            (1 pound loaf)

            3/4 cup water
            1 1/3 cups bread flour
            2/3 cup whole wheat flour
            1 tsp. salt
            1 1/2 tbs butter
            1 tbs brown sugar
            1 tbs honey
            Grated rind of 1 orange (I use a big one!)
            1 1/2 tsp. Red Star brand active dry yeast for all machines

            Place all ingredients in bread pan. Select light crust setting. Press start.

            Again, I can't claim credit for the recipe, I just copied it from a book!
