Bread Machine Recipes
Shared by Paul's Grains' customer, Mrs. Elaine Carr of Oregon. Read Mrs. Carr's helpful bread machine tips here.

      Basic White Bread     
      Blue Ribbon Bread     
      Breakfast Health Bread     
      Egg Bread with Whole Wheat     
      Raisin-Nut-Cinnamon Bread     

Basic White Bread
(1 1/2 pound loaf)

8 oz. + 1 Tb. warm water (90-100 degrees)
2 3/4 c. unbleached white all-purpose flour
2 Tb. powdered milk
3 Tb. white sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tb. butter or margarine
2 1/2 tsp. active dry yeast

Gluten may be added if desired (1-3 Tb.), though this recipe usually rises nicely.

NOTE: I use "basic" setting on my machine, "medium" color.

Blue Ribbon Bread
(1 1/2 pound loaf with high fiber and protein)

1 c. + 2 Tb. warm water
1 jumbo-size egg
1 2/3 c. unbleached all-purpose white flour
1/3 c. whole grain soy flour
2 Tb. potato flakes
3 Tb. crushed sunflower seed (give these a few quick spins in a blender)
2 Tb. rye flour
3 Tb. yellow corn meal
2 Tb. flax seed (ground in blender cup)
2 Tb. rice flour (white rice ground as fine as the blender will grind it)
1 Tb. poppy seeds
2 Tb. whole wheat flour
2 Tb. home-ground old-fashioned oatmeal (the blender again)
2 Tb. powdered milk
4 Tb. brown sugar, packed
1 tsp. salt
2 Tb. butter
2 tsp. yeast
3 Tb. gluten
1 Tb. whey protein powder
1/8 tsp. vanilla (Mexican vanilla, if available)
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tb. raw wheat germ

Breakfast Health Bread
(1 1/2 pound loaf -- excellent toasted for breakfast)

1 c. + 2 Tb. water (90-100 degrees)
2 Tb. butter or margarine
2 Tb. honey
2 c. unbleached all-purpose white flour and 1 c. whole-wheat flour --
          OR 2 1/2 c. white flour and 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
3 Tb. powdered milk
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tb. freshly ground flax seed (may use blender)
2 Tb. soy flour (aids rising)
2 tsp. active dry yeast

The last 3 ingredients may be added after buzzer sounds mid-way through mixing:
1/3 c. crushed English walnuts (crush in plastic bag with rolling pin)
1/4 c. freshly ground sunflower seeds (a few spins in the blender)
3/4 c. raisins (Half the raisins may be added in the beginning for a darker bread. This mashes some of the raisins more.)

Use "basic" bread maker setting, "light" color.

If you desire to wake up to the smell of this bread fresh, set breadmaker in evening. Place raisins and nuts around outside edge of pan away from yeast. Do not add raisins to water in pan as raisins will absorb too much liquid, and a poor loaf of bread will be obtained. (This note is from West Bend breadmaker book.)

Egg Bread with Whole Wheat
(1 1/2 pound loaf)

3/4 c. warm water (90-100 degrees)
1/3 c. sunflower oil
2 large eggs
2 c. unbleached all-purpose white flour
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tsp. yeast
3 Tb. wheat gluten (not required, but makes a higher loaf)

Ideas for Alterations:
  • Use 1 c. blender-ground oatmeal instead of whole wheat flour (measure before grinding)
  • Use 1/2 c. blender-ground oatmeal and 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
  • Use 1/4 c. corn meal in place of some of the flour
  • Use 1-2 Tb. blender-ground flax seed
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon is a nice touch -- also good in white bread
  • 1/3 c. potato flakes in place of some of the flour -- then when dough is mixed well, touch with fingertip to check consistency -- if too sticky you might need to add a tablespoonful more-or-less of white flour.

Raisin-Nut-Cinnamon Bread ~
(1 1/2 pound loaf)

l jumbo size egg
1 c. warm water (90-100 degrees)
2 c. unbleached all-purpose white flour
2/3 c. whole wheat flour, minus 2 Tb.
2 Tb. blender-ground rice flour
2 Tb. dry milk powder
3 Tb. brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon (cinnamon diminishes rising some)
2 Tb. butter
2 1/2 tsp. active dry yeast
2 Tb. soy flour
1 Tb. poppy seeds (if desired)

Last two items to be added when buzzer sounds:
3/4 c. raisins
1/2 c. chopped walnuts

Use "basic" setting and "light" color.
Do not use this recipe for over-night setting, because it has egg in it.
