    RE: getting fluffy bread in a breadmaker - one tip I learned was to put a tablespoon of lemon juice into the mix - you cannot taste it, but every time I've made bread this way, it's turned out beautifully (and I have old yeast - 'cause I go through phases of making bread and not making it...)

    I like www.recipezaar.com for their bread recipes. The absolute BEST one - the one I get LOADS of compliments on (as well as requests for the recipe) is the Outback Style Honey Wheat. Holy moley that bread is good!! (I've made it as a loaf in the breadmaker, but I've also made rolls or mini loaves after using the breadmaker to make the dough...)

    Here are some others:
    Country White Bread or Dinner Rolls (Bread Machine)
    Honey Oat Bran Bread


    I also have (handwritten, at home) recipes for "Sticky buns" (cinnamon rolls with a caramel top instead of white icing, Swedish Rye bread and Swedish Coffee cake (which you braid - it's cool looking and yummie!)

    Just found this thread :cool1: I have a Sunbeam bread machine (1.5 & 2lb loaves).

    I have been baking bread lately and one of our favorites is to use a general whole wheat recipe and add some diced kielbasa and just a bit of cheddar cheese to the mix, You can swap out the liquid with some beer. :thumbsup2
    Adding dill and some dried onion to rye bread is also yummy. You can make a nice veggie bread by adding a pack of dried veggie soup mix to white or whole wheat breads.

    I use Red Star bread machine yeast that I keep in the freezer along with my dried milk (bring the measured amount to room temp before adding to the machine) and have never had a problem, the loaves rise beautifully.

    Here are two recipes that I found on the net. They are great. Super soft!

    Soft as Wonder Bread:
    Ingredients
    • 1 cup water (room temp.)
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 3 tablespoons margarine
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 3 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 cup powdered milk (not skim)
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
    Directions
    Add ingredients in order given (this is for my machine, your's maybe different).
    Select dough cycle.
    When done, take out dough and on a floured surface, shape into loaf and place in loaf pan. (I try to work it as little as possible).
    Let rise in a warm place for approximately 40 minutes until doubled in size.
    Bake on centre rack of preheated 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.
    Cool on wire rack before slicing.

    Soft Sandwich Rolls
    2 1/2 teaspoons regular instant yeast or active dry yeast*
    3 tablespoons sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    3 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
    1/4 cup potato flour OR dried potato flakes
    1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon lukewarm water (potato water, if you have any saved)
    3/4 cup lukewarm milk
    3 tablespoons butter, softened or melted
    *The recipe directions are written for instant yeast; to use active dry yeast, dissolve it in the potato water first. Also, be aware that your rising times will be longer.

    To make dough by hand or mixer: In a large bowl, whisk together the yeast, sugar, salt, flour and potato flakes. Add the water, milk and butter, and beat until smooth. Knead the dough on a lightly oiled surface till it's smooth and supple. Add flour if you must, but the dough will continue to absorb liquid as you knead, so try to knead for 5 minutes or so before adding any additional flour. Remember, the more flour in the dough, the heavier and dryer the rolls will be.

    Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and set the dough aside to rise till doubled in bulk, 1 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on the warmth of your kitchen.

    To make dough in a bread machine: Place all of the ingredients into the pan of your bread machine, program the machine for Manual or Dough, and press Start. Assess the dough about 10 minutes before the end of the second kneading cycle; add additional water or flour as necessary to produce a smooth, supple, somewhat soft dough.

    To complete the rolls: Divide the dough into eight pieces. Shape each piece into a smooth ball, and flatten the balls till they're about 4 inches in diameter, trying to keep the tops of the rolls smooth; the nicer the top looks at this point, the nicer it will turn out to be once it's baked. Drape the rolls with lightly greased plastic wrap, and set them aside to rise till they're very puffy, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

    Bake the rolls in a preheated 350°F oven for 20 to 22 minutes, or until they're golden brown. Remove them front he oven, set them on a wire rack to cool, and spray them with butter-flavored pan spray, if desired (or brush them with melted butter or margarine). This will give the rolls a soft crust. When the rolls have cooled completely, store them in an airtight container. Yield: 8 rolls.

    I've had a craving for crazy bread. I know it's pizza dough, cut into strips, baked and basted with margerine, garlic and parmesan cheese. Now I need a great recipe for pizza dough I can make in my machine. Any suggestions?
