Simple Rolls That Look Like Pumpkins
May 30, 2013
Now, a bread machine is not cheap! Another problem I find with it, is that you can usually only make one loaf at a time. I would like to make 6-8 loaves at a time. No can do, with a bread machine. I suppose if you are financially independent, you could buy several and have them all going at once...but for me that is impractical.
In fact, now my bread machine is broken. I must get by until it is fixed, but I have found if I make just one loaf at a time, I can DO it myself. It's not as hard as I thought if I get myself organized and prepare things to be a little easier.
I do have some great recipes. My favorite bread recipes have all come from the same source:
Beth Hensberger's, "The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook (www.harvardcommonpress.com)
I have tried these and use them regularly:
Vienna Bread (Bread Machine)
Virginia Light Rolls (Bread Machine)
White Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine)
Beer Bread (Bread Machine)
Honey Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine)
Coconut Milk Bread (Bread Machine)
I've some other favorites, but didn't find a great deal of response from other members so I didn't add them yet...will do.
The above cook book says that converting bread machine recipes to without bread machine recipes is not that big a deal. I've tried it, and found this to be true. Just make your liquids warm almost hot, and sprinkle in your yeast. Let set while you put together the rest. Mix well your other dry ingredients, cut up your butter and throw it in, then add wet ingredients and mix it up...away you go...start kneading!
