How To Make Fresh Baked Bread With A Bread Machine

One of the tips for making homemade bread with a bread machine is to make the dough in the machine but bake it in the oven.  Making bread becomes difficult when you are kneading by hand keeping track of the timing of the dough rising.  Having a modern bread machine take all of the work off your hands.

Yes you can just dump the ingredients in the bread machine pan and all the work will be done, but I have found the shape, texture, and consistency of the bread to be best baked in the oven.

Every bread machine has a dough function where all the timing and kneading are done with perfection.  You can then take the dough out and form to whatever shape you like. We like a round loaf, but long oblong is fun or even taking the dough and making breadsticks or buns.

You also have the option at this point when the dough is done kneading and proofing, to add extras or coat the top with olive oil, oats, salt, pepper, or seeds and nuts.

Important Tips For Bread Machine Bread Dough

  • Always use fresh ingredients. If your yeast or bread flour is too old you may not be able to get your dough to rise properly or it may fall flat during baking.
  • Measure exactly the recipe.
  • Do not compress your flour, but instead use a scoop or spoon to scoop out the flour and put int the measuring cup. I use a whisk to fluff up my flour in the container before I scoop it out into the measuring cup.
  • When measuring flour use a butter knife to leave off each cup. Do the same for all dry ingredients.
  • Place the ingredients in the bread machine pan in the order of the recipe.
  • Make sure that the blade is in the pan before you add your ingredients or you will have to start all over again (I have done this too many times that I do not want to remember).

Our First Vacation as Newlyweds & How a Bread Machine Became Part of our New Family

In my family, when I was growing up, we always took a summer vacation. My father would always take the entire month of August off because, in the 60s and early 70s, the offices were not air condition. Even when money was tight, my parents would take us to visit some of their old college friends or to go camping up in northern New York or up into Canada.

When Jim and I were newlyweds, the first spring I wanted to get away from the snow on vacation. Jim’s family while his father would take off the month of August they did not travel very often. So Jim was very eager when I said that we needed to take a spring vacation.

I have always been very close to my first cousin Elayn and her husband Sam. They moved to Florida when I was in college. So visiting Sam & Elayne was a perfect first vacation for new honeymooners who were still in the process of building their dream home and tight on money. A road trip was in order.

My mother had two siblings, an older brother and an older sister, both uncle Meridith and Aunt Lois had moved to Florida about the same time in the 70s. They lived within a few miles of each other. We were excited to see the relatives and get away from the cold north.

As Jim had not done much traveling through the United States, this one week vacation was a whirlwind of stopping and showing Jim a lot of the places that were my favorites as a child.

I had spent many summers traveling with Aunt Lois and Uncle Louis, Elaine’s parents, on a long road trip south to Florida. My best friend from elementary school went to Florida with us one summer on one of these long lazy summer trips to Florida, but that’s a story for another recipe.
