bread bucket--a success!!

i just made my first 4 loaves of bread in my bread bucket!! so easy!! i could have mixed up 8 loaves but i'm glad i only did 4 because the big ball of risen dough was a little hard to handle after i dumped it out of the bucket. next time i will dump it onto the kitchen table so i have more room. the bucket recipe book also has a nice recipe for coffee cakes which i will be using for the holidays

it is a bucket with a dough hook inside and has a hand crank on the top. it is also called a dough mixer.
here is picture of one on ebay:

kind of an old fashioned way to knead a lot of dough. the directions with my bread bucket says it can fit up to 20 cups of flour or enough for 8-one pound loaves.

Re: bread bucket--a success!!

Intriguing! Is it worthwhile for someone who make homemade bread by hand?! My Mom uses her stand mixer but alas that is not in the budget....

yes! the directions that come with the mixer says you can make 4-8 loaves at a time. i made a recipe for 4 loaves--and it rose and filled the bucket!! i think it would have rose up and out of it if i had made the 8 loaf recipe. my plan is to make 6 loaves and turn the dough out in a different bowl to rise and then mix up another 6 to freeze. if i do this each week i will have at least 6 baked loaves and 6 in the freezer ready to be risen and baked. looking forward to making pizza dough in it too.

Re: bread bucket--a success!!

Sounds like a great little gadget especially since I make 4+ loaves every week for my family. I have a stand mixer but it makes a mess once you add the flour. I did some searching around on the internet and stumbled across the Hillbilly Housewife website. She has a yummy family bread recipe that you can make by hand in a dishpan. You can even make it the night before and let it sit and rise in your oven overnight! I tried it and it is so easy and all you have to clean up it the dishpan and a spoon!! I think my poor mixer just got retired!!

Re: bread bucket--a success!!

I make the Hillbillyhousewife recipe in a dish pan and it is great! A little too dense for my DH - a homemade bread connoisseur - but it's just a lot of work to knead it. My mom tells me to knead it for 20 minutes for best results! I'm thinking a stand mixer or bread bucket would be better. I'm also looking at professional bread mixers - sometimes they are for sale at auctions. I wonder how cheaply I could get one....

Strange...I only knead mine for a couple minutes and it turns out light and super yummy. Then again, I am not a bread connoisseur!

Re: bread bucket--a success!!

Tell me about it! It's no fun expecting to prepare EXPERT homemade bread (like his mom's of course) when I never learned to cook or bake! I'm happy with ANY homemade bread! LOL
