Bread Maker Magic

So I borrowed my mom's bread maker hoping to save some money and make my own bread. I've have the bread maker for 3 months and finally made my first loaf of (honey wheat) bread last night . It came out great, but not really a bread I would make sandwiches for lunch with. I also made cinnamon rolls this morning (well just put them in the oven).

What else can I make in the bread maker? Would love to have some more recipes or ideas.

Re: Bread Maker Magic

I use mine for pizza dough more then actual bread. There's a bunch of easy recipes on Hillbilly Housewife.

Re: Bread Maker Magic

I use my bread maker for cinnamon buns, baguettes, dough pretzels, pizza dough and foccacia bread. I rarely use it to bake; I find that my bread tastes better baked in the oven but I use the machine to mix, knead, and rise.

Re: Bread Maker Magic

Use the breadmaker to make the dough, then put it in a skinny loaf pan and rise and bake. My loaves come out much to dense for sandwich slices in the breadmaker, but if I just use the machine for the dough it comes out perfect.

So is there any advantage to the bread maker at all then? Why not just use a food processor or stand mixer with dough hook?
