Easy Bread Maker Recipes Preparation 

Bread Maker With Ingredients

The first and most obvious use of the bread maker is in making leavened bread. You need only add all the ingredients in the bread maker like flour, yeast, and water. However, each bread make has a different order in which you should put your ingredients in.

This ensures the yeast is activated at exactly the right time. This order can be found in the manufacturer’s manual.  Then you need only set up the right settings to help mix and knead the dough and proof the yeast.

The main advantage is that the bread maker helps the dough mix more than kneading it by hand or using a mixer.

So, it should come as no surprise that our first recipe is for simple bread!
