10 Bread Machine Recipes To Try

Does your bread machine, that you bought with good intentions, sit in a dark corner in your kitchen, sadly spending its days collecting dust? Need inspiration that really you can make tasty bread easily?

Over the years, it has been apparent that if one wants to buy me a gift I will love, buying me kitchen toys I would argue I don’t “need” will usually make me quite happy. Last year for an anniversary gift, Kirk surprised me with a Zojirushi BB-CEC20 Home Bakery Supreme 2-Pound-Loaf Breadmaker. My hard working old bread machine was dying and made a ton of noise when kneading (it was literally crossing the counter every loaf!). The Zojirushi does have a bit of a learning curve, but once I mastered it, wow….does it make a great loaf of bread. The thing that hooked me was the pan. I am a sucker for a traditional loaf size!

PS2: The white color is cheaper than black, so a bonus there….


While you can make so much with the machine, honestly the recipe on the side of the machine is no fail. It makes an amazing loaf of bread that is tender and moist. Even the baby lines up when a hot loaf comes out (homemade bread is his gluten-cheat, and it doesn’t bother his skin like commercial bread does!)

  1. Yep, my poor bread machine was relegated to a dark corner of the laundry room. There was a time when I was home with Knox and made bread all the time. But then life happened and it fell by the wayside. And now it’s sitting in the “probably donate” pile. I might have to nudge it over to the keep pile now šŸ™‚
