Question Master Mixes for Bread Machines?

I haven't used my bread machine in soooooooo long. Is there a master mix for use in a bread machine? I know they make boxed mixes and you maybe add yeast? If anyone has a good recipe, please let me know. I'd love to use it again.

Hi HSma!! Welcome. I'm a newbie, too, but I've become addicted to FamilyCorner in a very short time. (I'm sure the ladies wish my husband would come home and drag me away from the keyboard)

Shawn has some great recipes posted under "bread, muffins".

Do you really have to buy the expensive bread machine flour? What makes it different? finer? I can get a loaf of bread at Rainbow for .49 cents. Don't really want to make bread if it's going to cost me a fortune. Maybe specialty breads now and then, but not for everyday. Can I get away with all-purpose? I thought that's all I used before but it's been so many years since I've used it, I can't remember.

From an everyday bread machine user . . .

I make all our bread at home using my Zojirushi Breadmaker. I've been doing it for about 8 years now. I haven't bought a loaf of bread in -- well, can't remember when it was!

Here's a basic recipe that works everytime, and I use it virtually every day. It's just a basic white sandwich bread:

BASIC BREAD

1 liquid measuring cup full to the brim of milk
2 eggs
2-3 tablespoons of butter or margarine, needs to be in stick
form, cut into tiny pieces
pinch of salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup instant mashed potatoes
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons of yeast

Put the ingredients into the pan in the order listed. When you get to the yeast, make a little well in the center of your flour and put it there.

Can also use water instead of milk. When I do this, I usually add in 1/4 cup dried milk powder.

The machine should be on a basic white setting.

You can experiment with this -- add a little more salt if your bread rises and falls, or omit the salt if it doesn't rise enough. This isn't an exact science, and every breadmaker is different. I can tell you that the sweeter you make the bread, the more it will rise, because the yeast likes the sugar. Thus adding the salt, to control the rising.

I have a ton of recipes, but I generally stick to just this one. Once in awhile I use one that has oatmeal in it, just for variety. But since we just use our bread for toast and pb&j, this works great.

Enjoy!

Pinkie Winky And a couple of things I forgot!

Ooops! I forgot to mention a couple of other things:

-- I buy regular flour, your basic white bleached bad-for-you-but-cheap-oh-well! stuff in a 25 lb. bag at Costco. You can also find it at Sam's. Don't waste your time on bread flour unless you're really picky; it will all work fine for your bread. It's about $3.75 for 25 lbs.

-- I do spend money on yeast. I get SAF in the brick-sized packages. I've also used Fleischman's that I can get at Costco or Sam's, but I've found that the SAF is just failsafe. Keep it in the fridge or freezer in a plastic container and it will last forever. And be sure you check the expiration date on it before you buy it!

-- You can add flax seeds to your mix if you like. Once in awhile I do this because it's good fibre.

Enjoy!

A word of caution when giving a recipe - there are 2 loaf sizes....1 1/2 and 2 lb. loaves. You need to know that! Some machines have the 2 sizes (as mine does) so the ingredient measurements and settings will differ. Always remember to add the yeast last - if it gets mixed with water or salt it will either not activate or activate too early. The rule is wet, dry, then yeast in a "well " made with your finger
