Bread Machine Recipes

Here are the bread (machine) recipes I promised. Each of these yields one loaf. See the post below for my instructions for a "regular" shaped loaf and soft crust. For all of these recipes, place ingredients in your machine according to the directions given in your instruction manual. (Just an aside- I always mix my dry ingredients, minus the yeast, in a separate bowl. I place the wet ingredients directly in the machine pan. Then I add all of the dry ingredients at once, make a well in the flour to add the yeast, and get the machine going. Then I stand there with the machine and help it along with a rubber spatula. I make sure all of the flour is getting mixed in, scraping it off the sides. ) Sometimes I end up having to add another tablespoon or two of flour as the machine is doing the initial mixing. I think it has to do with the humidity and how accurately I measured my water ; ) You be the judge when you make your loaves- I trust you. But I recommend adding only one tablespoon at a time so you don't overcompensate.)
