Anyone who has used a bread machine before knows that shape your bread takes is sometimes less than appealing. But once you make these easy homemade bread machine recipes, the shape no longer matters. Because the taste of these bread recipes is so amazing you won’t remember what it looked like on the cooling rack!
There are so many thing you can make in your bread machine besides just a loaf of bread! And then there are bread recipes that you can simply mix and knead in your bread machine and them shape manually and bake in your oven.
But the most common use of a bread machine is to make bread from start to finish. Every bread machine is different but once you start using one and get used to it you will know the best way to add your ingredients. Some of them say to add liquid first and some bread machines say it doesn’t matter. It’s all in how that specific bread machine activates the yeast in the dough.
The best part of a bread machine is that it will bake your bread for you. No need to heat up the oven or grease extra pans. I love how the bread machine will mix the dough, knead it and bake it all in the same pan!
How to Store Bread Machine Bread
When you take that loaf out of the bread maker, it’s not always the easiest thing to figure out how to store it. The bread machine loaf doesn’t fit in a normal-sized ziploc bag, so you are better off with something like this reusable Organic Cotton Bread Bag from Think4Earth.
