Bread Recipes for Your Bread Maker

The following recipes below are for a bread maker but can also be done in the conventional way. Each recipe will make one and a half pounds.

Keep in mind that there are many different recipes out there and these three that I am sharing are what I would consider fun or better yet dessert types.

My first recipe is for whole wheat carrot bread. And again, these ingredient measurements will make one and a half pounds.

Whole wheat carrot bread:

Oil – two tablespoons

Honey – two tablespoons

Cottage cheese – 3/4 cup

Grated carrots – 1 cup

Dill weed – 1 1/2 teaspoons

Dry Mustard – 1/2 teaspoon

Orange zest – 1 teaspoon

Salt – 1 teaspoon

Whole wheat flour – 2/3 cup

Bread flour – 1 1/3 cup

Dry yeast – 1 1/2 teaspoon

For a bread maker you would put the setting on the basic bread cycle.

Chocolate Bread:

Water – 1 1/8 cup

White bread flour – 3 cups

Sugar – 1/4 cup

Salt – 1 1/2 teaspoons

Chocolate chips – 1/2 cups

Vanilla – 3/4 teaspoon

Large egg – 1

Cocoa powder – 1/2 cup

Yeast (fast rise) – 1 1/2 teaspoons

Or dry yeast – 1 1/2 teaspoons

The recommended cycle for chocolate bread on your maker would be sweet bread cycle or something similar because of course not all makers use the same terminology.

Also, if for any reason you are wondering why I am not giving the amount of time to cook the bread its because the bread maker is programmed to determine the cooking time.

Raisin Bread:

Water – 1 cup

Oil – 3 table spoons

Sugar – 1/4 cup

Salt – 1 1/8 tea spoons

Cinnamon – 3/4 teaspoon

Bread Flour – 3 cups

Raisins – 1/2 cup

Dry yeast – 1 1/8 teaspoon

The recommended cycle for raisin bread is the sweet bread cycle.

So there are three recipes that I know you will enjoy and if you do not currently have a bread maker you should consider getting one because they are so simple to use. The maker basically does all the work for you.

The only thing you would need to do is put the ingredients into the bread pan, choose your cycle and then press start. Approximately three hours later you will have a fresh loaf of bread and your house will fill up with the wonderful smell of fresh baked bread!

Best of luck with the recipes. I know they will turn out fine and taste delicious.
