Book Description

Jan. 22 2002
Everyone loves fresh bread, but not the time it takes to make it. Bread machines are hot items in the kitchen because they take the work out of making homemade bread. Even better, Betty Crocker takes the mystery out of the bread machine and brings you easy-to-use recipes for both 1 1/2-pound and 2-pound loaves that work for all the popular bread machine models. We've packed this book with over 100 recipes to tempt your tastebuds. There are delicious bread recipes for classic favorites, rustic breads, sweet doughs, coffeecakes and buns. Betty Crocker's Bread Machine Cookbook also offers a host of recipes for doughs to mix, then shape and bake in a conventional oven -- such as foccacia, breadsticks and pizza doughs -- with easy-to-follow illustrations on how to shape and trim the loaves. Best of all, you can trust these recipes will work in your bread machine because the Betty Crocker kitchens have tested the recipes in several different machines to ensure success at home. We've also loaded up this book to include information on bread machine ingredients; glossary of bread machine ingredients, techniques, and terms; and a breakdown of the various features found on different models of machines and how to use them. There's nothing better than the taste of homemade bread -- and no one brings it to you better than Betty Crocker.


Product Details


Product Description

From Amazon

Old-fashioned bread the new-fashioned way, Betty calls it. Easy, convenient, modern. There's no knead for loafing. Not with that fabulous combination in the kitchen: Betty Crocker and the bread machine.

The construction of this book, first of all, is wonderful. The cover is hard and the binding is heavy, enameled spiral. Each page lays flat on the counter, or you can hold the book open on one arm while doing something with the other hand. This suggests that Betty Crocker wrote her bread-baking cookbook with serious use in mind. She certainly tested her recipes. A variety of bread machines were used, which means that each recipe was tested a number of different times. Betty tells you exactly what kind of flour she used, as well as salt, size of eggs, kind of yeast, etc. She leaves nothing to chance.

Bread machine baking has its own peculiarities, and Betty addresses all these right up front, the hows and how-tos (as well as the whys and wherefores) of getting the perfect loaf every time. There's a troubleshooting section, as well as a frequently asked question section. Then it's right into the recipes, all 130 of them.

There are Good and Savory Loaves (Cheese Onion Bread) and Wholesome Grain Loaves (Toasted Almond Whole Wheat Bread), Fruit and Vegetable Harvest Loaves (Dried Apricot Bread), Smaller Can Be Just Right Loaves (these are one-and-a-half-pound loaves), and then several chapters on breads you start in the bread machine, but finish in the oven. These include braided sweet breads, pizza dough, rustic-style breads, and coffeecakes.

Any bread machine owner is going to love to loaf with Betty Crocker. --Schuyler Ingle

We've packed this book with over 130 recipes to tempt your tastebuds.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good June 20 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover-spiral
I bought this book when I bought my bread machine. I really love the variety of recipes in this book. I have tried two recipes already that are really very easy to make and easy to follow. I also like the feature that it has a spiral binding and lies flat!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book Oct. 14 2002
Format:Hardcover-spiral
when I bought my bread machine a year ago I was really excited about buying a cookbook to try it out. I found so many books, and most of the reviews said "buy this one it's the best", or "you won't need another one"... I got all confused. So, since I have most Betty Crocker cookbooks, I choose this one, 'cause I know they only have try and true recipes. In fact, it didn't let me down.
The book starts with an introduction about bread machines in general, how they work, and ingredients. It has a chart with all kinds of flours and teaches you what kind of bread you'll get.
Then the recipes. Including here, classics like white bread, Sally Lunn, garlic bread. New ones like orange capuccino brad. It has one of the best bagel recipe.
It's divided in 7 chapters:
Chapter 1: Good and Savory loaves
Chapter 2: Wholesome Grains Loaves
Chapter 3: Fruit and Veggie Harvest Loaves
Chapter 4: Smaller Can Be jst Right
Chapter 5: Rustic Loaves and Flatbreads
Chapter 6: Satisfying Rolls and Breadsticks
Chapter 7: Sweet breads and Coffee Cakes
The book has plenty of pictures, and this, especially for a beginner, is pretty important to know what it will look like the bread you are gonna bake.
A year later, I find myself still using this fantastic book and having excellent results. It has over 130 recipes so it's impossible to get bored.

This cookbook is full of helpful information for beginners, and features pages about humidity, sea-level, the best and worst types of flours, yeast substitutions, as well as depictions of common mistakes and outcomes supplied helpfully by pictures. There are tips and suggestions with every recipe, and sometimes even a companion recipe, such as a spread, or sandwich combination. The recipes look fantastic, and I just pulled a coffee cake out of the oven, and couldn't be happier with my purchase! Money well spent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book Feb. 1 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover-spiral
I've tried over 2 dozen recipes from this book and they all turn out great. I use the Oster Expressbake and especially like the chapter for smaller, 1 pound recipes. I occasionally have to add a bit of water or a pinch of flour in the initial mixing phase, but think that it depends on the humidity here (North Carolina). Overall, I've been happy with every recipe I've tried from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for anyone with a bread machine April 24 2001
Format:Hardcover-spiral
I've used a bread machine for the past 5 years (2 actually I wore out the first). This cookbook has a wonderful format and a nice variety of breads and rolls to choose from. It has become my favorite gift to give friends who have bread machines. One thing that I do that give better texture is to use the dough cycle on my machine and bake it in a regular oven. That way I get a regular sized loaf with a nice soft crust.

3.0 out of 5 stars LITTLE DISAPPOINTED Jan. 14 2014
Format:Hardcover-spiral|Verified Purchase
I ordered this because I have a bread machine. There are several recipes I wanted to try but for some reason the book differentiates between the vertical loaf and the horizontal loaf. So for some of the recipes I wanted to try, the book indicates it cannot be made in a horizontal pan which is what I have.

This book has so many items and is very easy to use. I needed this to use my machine. Other books were more money but this was worth every penny.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not So Tasty March 3 2001
Format:Hardcover-spiral
I have tried a half dozen recipes from this book so far and I've liked only one of them (Sally Lunn). The pictures are beautiful, the spiral binding is great but the recipes I've tried are mediocre. Maybe it's just me or my machine (Breadman), but recipes from my other cookbooks tend to taste better.
