How to Use a Bread Machine?

without a doubt there is no nicer smell
in your home and particularly in the
kitchen than fresh-baked bread now if
you’re going to be making bread dough
from scratch there’s a lot of science
involved and I always find one of the
nicer shortcuts is to use an electric
bread machine these are super simple to
operate but the most important thing is
read your instructional manual get to
know your machine a little bit and make
sure that you understand exactly how it
works so you’ll have great results every
single time the second step you want to
make sure that you do when you’re making
bread and a bread machine is make sure
that all of your ingredients are nice
and fresh using fresh eggs and fresh
milk and butter and making sure that
they’re as fresh as they can be will
result in a nicer brighter flavor and
you’ll know that the end result is going
to taste great and then you want to take
a little bit of time making sure that
the bread recipe that you’re using is
appropriate for the size machine you
have the last thing you want to do is
have too much dough and have it bake up
and over and out of the pot or you want
to make sure that you have enough room
for the bread to knead now what we’re
going to do today is make a really
simple white bread recipe what we’ll do
first is get busy by programming the
machine and getting it ready for a basic
white bread now with this particular
machine first we’re going to choose our
loaf size we can choose a 1-1 and a half
or a 2 pound loaf what we’ve done here
is we’ve chosen a 2 pound loaf secondly
there are twelve different bread
settings we’re going to choose one for
basic which is a basic white bread and
then finally you’re choosing the color
of your crusts would you like to be
light medium or dark we’ve chosen medium
now let’s get busy with the ingredients
if you were making this bread dough by
hand there are lots of rules you have to
be very careful about you should never
let yeast come in contact with salt or
the liquid because it’ll activate the
yeast too soon in the process but the
nice thing about a bread machine as soon
as you turn this on it’s going to mix
immediately so you really don’t have to
worry too much about those rules the
bread machine is very forgiving and will
take care of all of the heavy lifting so
here are your ingredients we’re going to
begin with four cups of bread flour
next we’re going to add in our salt then
the sugar and add your warm water now
the water should be at least eighty
degrees because you want that warm water
to help activate the yeast we add in a
little oil and then finally always make
sure your yeast is very fresh and add
that in and as soon as it’s inside close
the lid press Start and the Machine does
the rest of the work this loaf will take
about three hours to bake and in no time
at all your house will fill with that
wonderful aroma and of course when that
bread comes out of the oven it’s ready
for some delicious fresh Creamery butter
and your favorite jam now that the
machine is into its bread cycle where
its kneading the bread dough allowing it
to rise kneading it again and then
beginning the baking process you can
begin to think about getting a little
creative this particular machine has a
beeping sound and when that beeping
sound goes off you can add some other
ingredients to make the bread even more
special think about adding things like
dried fruit you can also do nuts and
even chocolate chips can make a great
dessert bread the most important thing
to do get that in before the baking
process begins so it can be incorporated
into the dough and then you have
something really beautiful tasty and
aromatic when it’s all done so now the
baking cycle is completed and it smells
fantastic in here let’s go ahead and
take the bread out now the first thing
to remember is that this is very hot
inside so you’ll need a nice dish cloth
or an oven mitt pull that up and out I
like to lay it on its side on the
cutting board that way I can reposition
and grab this from the bottom and then
just scoot it right out so you can slice
I talked about it now the best rule of
thumb slice this after it comes out and
get some butter on there right away so
it gets nice and melty there’s nothing
nicer than waking up to fresh bread or
serving it with your dinner
beautiful texture
