How many people use bread makers?

April 20, 2007 4:40pm CST
I have a bread maker that I use quite a bit. I usually just make the dough and rise it in the bread maker, then I bake it in the oven. It seems to never be done all the way through when I make it in the bread maker. Does anyone else have this problem? Are there any solutions? I have tried all the settings and times and it either is not done all the way through or it is too done, depending on the size of the loaf and the type of bread that I make. tdbrower1969

I used to make bread the old fashioned way. Kneading it with my hands and I loved doing it. I had to have carpal tunnel surgery on both my wrists and now they dont work right. So yes, I do have a bread machine and I use it often. I have never purchased a commercial bread mix though. I have created my own recipes to use making my bread in my bread machine. I love my bread machine.

I am sorry about your wrists. I have never tried anything but the recipes in the book I have. I am afraid that I will add too much or too little of something. But, I like trying the different recipes in the book I got with my machine.

What kind of bread machine do you have? Maybe some of my recipes would work well with your bread machine. Let me know if you want some of them.

Sorry, I have been remiss in checking back on the discussions that I have started. I have a Sunbeam bread maker, I would appreciate any recipes that might work! Thank you!

I used to have a breadmaker and I loved it. I used it at least several times a week. It was stolen out of a storage unit though several years ago. After being on myLot and reading some wonderful recipes for bread machines, I am again on the hunt to find a good one. I never had a problem with the bread not being done all the way to the middle with mine. Maybe it is the brand, or depending on how old it is, maybe the temp. mechanism has given out. Loaf size could play a role as well, but I wouldn't think so, if you have the setting set correctly. I wish I could be of more help.

I have not found the place on here with bread recipes, but I will try to look that up. I never thought about it being too old, I have had it for quite a few years. I might just have to go buy a new one, but for now as long as it mixes the batter and raises it, I will keep it until I find a new one.

I have a bread make that was given to me by my cousin but she lost the directions. I have yet to use it Guesss I will have to go online one of these days and look up how to! You could try rising the bread in a bowl with a warm towel over it first?

I know, I try to let it rise in the pan for a while before I bake it in the oven. That seems to work pretty well for me. I bet that you can find the directions on the internet, good luck!
