help modifying a bread recipe??

i have a recipe that makes really good bread, but i want to be able to bake it in my oven, rather than in the breadmaker (I dont like the size of a loaf from my breadmachine, it doesnt make for good sandwiches). i know i can do a setting on my breadmaker that just mixes the dough and maybe lets it rise, but i dont know what temp to put the oven on or how long to bake it. can someone help me figure it out? heres the recipe if it can help someone to figure it out.

1 1/4 c warm water
3 TBS brown sugar
1 TBS powdered milk
2 TBS oil
1 tsp salt
mix together, then add
3 c white bread flour (I usually mix 1/2 white and 1/2 wheat though)
1 TBS dough enhancer
1 heaping tsp yeast

makes 1 1/2 pound loaf.

Re: help modifying a bread recipe??

i just looked at the bread machine and there is no setting for dough, but the machine says "bread and dough machine". so, if anyone could also tell me how long to leave it in the machine for it to rise. i dont even think it tells what stage of the process it is on. its not a very elaborate machine. or would it be best to let it rise on the counter in the pan that will go into the oven? if so, how long?

this is a borrowed bread machine. my old one died and i am using my moms until i can get another one. i dont like it, but shouldnt complain, right?

Re: help modifying a bread recipe??

what is dough enhancer??

Did you simply try it in the oven to see if it would turn out ok?


If you want to try an easy bread recipe, try mine (it's just a basic bread with a wonderful crust (think of German bread) so you could play around with powdered milk and brown sugar for the taste)

All you need is a cast iron pot with lid ( like the one from IKEA).

5 cup all purpose flour or any other flour, even mix of diff. flour like wheat and rye ...(the more whole grain flour you use, the more water you will need)
1 Tsp Sugar
1,5 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Yeast
spices (like ground anis seed, carraway seed, fennel seed)
about 3 cups of warm (hand warm, not to hot to kill the yeast) tap water.

Mix everything with a spoon and cover.
Let stand for a few hours, even over night.
Rub your cast iron pot with flour inside. If the pot is new or washed lately the flour won't stick.
That's why you should not wash the cast iron pot between baking, but wipe clean only with a dry cloth if necessary. After baking, all that's left in the pot is some flour, nothing else, you can leave it as it is for days until the next bread.
Do not leave a lot of flour in the pot 'cause it will burn while preheating.

Heat oven AND cast iron pot t 415F
When preheated, remove pot and sprinkle flour on the bottom of the pot.
Scrape in the dough, do not stir or knead, sprinkle flour on the bread and make some cuts with two knives to give the dough some room to raise.
Bake with lid for 50 minutes.
Bake without lid for another 50 minutes.
When the bread is dark brown on top, it's ready.
Switch off the oven and let the bread cool down in the oven in the pot.

If the bread sticks inside the pot: take a plastic spatula and go all around.

give it a try, it is really easy!

Re: help modifying a bread recipe??

if you leave the bread on the counter to rise:

I leave mine out for several hours, sometimes over night. It is rising in a plastic bowl, since I preheat the cast iron pot to get a perfect crust.

Re: help modifying a bread recipe??

What the brand and model? I can probably find the manual and figure it out for you if you don't have one already. Without that info, I'm not a lot of help unfortunately.

Mine is a West Bend Homestyle bread and dough machine. When I put it on the dough setting it is 120m long, it mixes the dough and does the first rised. After that I take the dough out, shape it and let it rise in the loaf pans for 30m or until doubled in size. Bake at 350 for 25m. I know it's done when the bottom makes a hollow sound when tapped on. You have to use hot pads and take it out of the pan so it can cool on a cooling rack.

My favorite recipe is

1 1/4c + 1tbsp warm water or milk
2tbsp butter
1c bread flour
2c wheat flour (or 3c wheat flour and 1-1 1/2tbsp wheat gluten, no bread flour)
2tbsp brown sugar
1 1/2tsp salt
1/4tsp baking soda
1 1/2tsp bread machine yeast

add to machine in that order, set to dough and walk away. Sometimes I throw in a tablespoon or 2 of flaxseed meal for flavor. It doesn't affect the outcome other than adding a nutty flavor.
