Honestly, it's really rewarding to make it from scratch & the time thing, well, I find it's easier to make things from scratch myself than some of the simple mixes where you need to follow directions & still add things. Unsure what kind of bread you like, but I've got some that are super easy if you're interested in recipes. If you do wheat, I have a no-knead recipe for that, along with many GF breads. Feel free to PM me if you're interested in recipes. I'm off to bed now so I'm too lazy to post them lol
I would love some wheat recipes. The one I have been using is good it uses honey instead of sugar which I think made it taste better.

Re: Bread

This is the BEST sandwich loaf ever! Well...it's actually for 2 loaves, but it's whole wheat and it slices like a dream! I've also made it with 1/2 white and 1/2 whole wheat and omitted the vital wheat gluten.

Re: Bread

And just because I love making bread so much...in all forms... here's my favorite recipe...chocolate bread! It's not too sweet, so it's a nice breakfast treat, afternoon snack with coffee, or even a nice dessert.
It also makes 2 loaves.

Would you also mind sharing a basic wheat bread recipe?
This is the machine I have
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

It makes 1.5 and 2lb horizontal loaves. I also make 1lb loaves in it on the1.5 lb setting and those come out just fine. The 1lb and 1.5 lb loaves are perfect size for sandwiches. The machine I had previously made vertical loaves, you just turn those on their side to get the right "sandwich size."

I also use a slicing guide like this
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

and an electric knife to slice the bread.

I use these two books
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

for the vast majority of my recipes. My favorite sandwich bread, actually is the yogurt oatmeal bread in the first one, because it's holds it's moisture really well and has a lot of chewy texture without being weird.

Re: Bread

Here is a No-Knead Wheat Bread recipe I used to do all the time.

1 c warmish water
1/4 c milk, juice, broth (most any liquid will work)
1/4 c melted butter, oil or a flax mixture (flax can replace oil OR eggs in a recipe but you cannot replace both oil AND eggs in the same recipe - need to pick one)
3 tbsp molasses, maple syrup, agave or honey
2 tsp instant yeast
1/4 c dry milk
1 1/4 tsp sea salt (any salt of your choice will work but I only use sea salts here due to the iodine in regular salt - allergy)
3 c whole wheat flour

1. Combine ingredients & mix (I use a stand mixer - it's fast & I'm lazy lol - I'm sure hand mixing would work fine).
2. Put into a greased bread pan/loaf pan & let rise for 60-90 mins in a warm place (I cover with a towel).
3. Uncover.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes.

It's one of the better breads I've made. I just wish I could still eat wheat! lol LMK how it works for you (or anyone else) that uses it I can try adding more recipes later when I have time.

I wonder do you have to have dry milk? I have everything else

Mine did not come out as big but their not flat... Maybe it was too chilly here this morning, I'll have to try again with the oven on and tent it in.


ETA: reread the red at the top. I didn't add gluten so that's why mine are not as high. But they do look good!
