Mix a little olive oil with baking soda to make a thick paste and rub on; found this here at GLP I think, and this works.

Re: Bread Machines and homemade food

I love home made bread, but often have problems with the rise, as my old house is cool and damp a lot of the time.


Simple trick...
If your oven has a light - turn it on and put your dough in the oven, close to the light bulb, but not touching it. Your bread will rise in a confined warm environment - works like a charm. My house is drafty and this is the only way I can do it sucessfully in the winter months...

Just remember to take it out BEFORE you preheat the oven for baking...

my bread machine is by Emeril, all of his products are anondized is a barrier against the aluminum. I bet your machine has an anodized pan, I think that is the norm now with newer machines....

You would have to eat probably 30 loaves of bread a day to get enough aluminum to cause you problems, hell it is in the water...

Just enjoy your bread machine and homemade bread, you could walk in the street tomorrow and get hit by a car....

Dunno bout y'all but here's my bread recipe.

First I buy my flour. I prefer the 'King Arthur' brand.

Use a 1/3 measuring cup.

10 measures/scoops of flour. Fold in a half stick of butter in pats. Add a pinch of salt. Add a spoonful of yeast.

Last add 4 measures of milk. Push start and walk away.

Re: Bread Machines and homemade food
Best Orange Marmalade in the bread machine

5 cups seedless oranges, peeled and chopped
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup pectin crystals

Add all of the ingredients in order written. I have a jam setting on my machine but if you do not than you can use the dough setting. At end of time remove the compote and let cool. Ready to eat.



Green Tea Date Loaf

2/lb setting recipe

1 1/3 cups room temp green tea
1 tsp salt (celtic sea salt if you have it)
2 1/3 cups flour
1 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp quick rise yeast
1/4 cups pitted dates

Add all ingredients (except dates) in order written. Choose the loaf program (if you do not have one you can use the bread setting). During the kneading cycle (my machine beeps, if yours does not then just add during the kneading cycle) add the dates. When done take it out and let cool.


The BEST pizza dough

1 2/3 cups water
2 tbsp olive oil
2 1/2 tsp salt (celtic sea salt if you have it)
5 1/3 flour
2 1/2 tsp quick rise yeast

Add all ingredients in order written. Select your dough setting. With ten minutes left preheat oven to 100F and turn it off. Grease a bowl with olive oil. Place finished bread machine dough into the greased bowl. Cover with a tea towel. Place in oven (make sure it is turned off after 100F was reached). Let stand in oven for 1 hour. Take out and use. This can be freeze as well for unused portions.

Re: Bread Machines and homemade food
I've really liked making my own bread and stuff over the years. Burned up 3 bread machines.
Then about a year ago I ran into this

Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a day.


[link to www.amazon.com]

Author's site: [link to zoebakes.com]


I found an article in Mother Earth News or something that had the basic recipe. Then I got the book.
Changed my cooking life. Seriously.
GOOD no-knead bread, pizza, whatever.

I can't emphasise enough how ....important this is for a bread lover.
I bake at least twice a week using this basic, easy method.
Got 2 fresh loaves sitting on the counter now.

K

got this off the web a few months ago. Works great, especially for pizza. The Mother Earth News site has basic directions. I have weak hands so the little to no kneading in this method works for me. Never got the book. Is it worth the added cost?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 804155


If you're already experimenting with the basics from the article then having the book may not be neccesary, To tell the truth I've only used the basic recipe so far. But as you probably know, the things you can do with that are almost limitless. I've really enjoyed experimenting with different things with the basic recipe. It all turns out well. I especially love making calzones from different mixtures, but they're not really covered well in the book. And the pecan sticky bun recipe is the basic sweet cake. But I've substituted raisins for the pecans and swapped out some of the sugar for honey. Incredible.
I think if you have a grasp on the basics, the book adds some exotics that I've never bothered to try. But I do like having it in my library.
I think MUCH more useful and important is that "Super Peel".
Now THAT really makes a difference in what you can do.
The basic recipe is very wet and sticky. I've tried making homemade pizza crust and calzones before but they were usaally a disaster because of the trouble moving whem from the table/floured surface to the stone in the oven.
It works incredibly well. It has a sliding cloth that acts as a conveyor belt. You hold the cloth still and push the board under the creation. See, the cloth slides under the dough without "sliding" as the board under it pushes under the dough. Hard to explain...there's videos showing it on the site.
[link to www.superpeel.com]

This gadget makes it fun and convenient to experiment around with different things.
I've made casseroles and then topped them with a layer of this dough using the peel to make big pot pies.
Moving pizza around is a cinch.
Moving sticky calzone things around without putting holes in them is easy. (Although they still leak a lot when they cook,,working on that :P )

I use 5 1/2 cups unbleached white flour and 1 Cup whole wheat for the basic. Never seen a reason a change that basic recipe.
Good Stuff!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! You're hooked... :)

I just now checked out that link. I have the hard copy from the original article.
That really is all you need unless you want to get really into it. The book adds some different kinds of doughs and stuff, but that article really covers 90% of what anyone would want.

BTW The authors are coming out with a new book in the next week or so cakked Healthy breads on 5 minuted a day or something close...

I use Baking soda as a deodorant and a toothpaste! Have for years. I keep it in an old spice container with the little holes in the top. Next to the B.R. sink.

Re: Bread Machines and homemade food
I picked up a bread machine the other day. Ordered it from NewEgg. It has one loaf pan and offers settings for cakes, muffins, bread, jam, etc.

To my joy, I found out how easy it is to make bread, and the great aroma it has filled my home with. One cup of water, some yeast, flour, hit start and voila! 3 hours later a hot loaf of bread ready to eat & share.

It doesn't stay as fresh as long, but it's delicious and much healthier than the store bought stuff with all of the preservatives and high fructose corn poison.

You can even buy bread mix that is pre-measured. Simply add the package to water and hit start.

So if you are looking for a new healthy way to provide hot bread to your dinner table this winter, here you go!

The best thing would be to learn how to make bread without a bread machine or dough mixer, if there is no power I can still make bread just by burning wood in a wood stove,use your hands for the dough.

Re: Bread Machines and homemade food
Most of the pans in the bread machine are aluminum. When you bake your bread, aluminum is leeching into your bread. Aluminum is a neurotoxin.

We have 2 bread machines & have quit using them completely because of this.

[link to www.gordonresearch.com]
 Quoting: mopar28m


Cooking with teflon coated aluminum is not a good idea.

We use our bread machines for kneading only, then we bake the hand shaped loaves in the oven. The shape of bread cooked in a bread machine is lame, not to mention the adverse effects of cooking with teflon coated aluminum.

I like to customize the shape the loaf with diagonal cuts. A basting of farm fresh egg during the last ten minutes makes the loaf a glistening work of art.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 775890


100% whole wheat isn't going to rise very much. That's why when you see a recipe with whole wheat it usually has white flour or something else mixed with it. Something about the gluten or something. You can't swap cup for cup with white.


This is the basic recipe I use. It's not the exact one from the article. I fudged around with it. It might be in the book. Too lazy to check right now. But it has never let me down. I know it by heart.
5 1/2 cups unbleached white OR bread flour. 1 cup whole wheat flour. 1 1/2 Tablespoon yeast (from a jar-bread machine yeast). About 1 tablespoon salt. 3 cups warm water.

For those of you who live in Canada, buy bread from Cobb's. They don't use preservatives, etc. and everything's baked fresh that morning. I recommend the Cape Seed Loaf; it's got lots of lovely seeds and whatnot in and on it.

I second the person who mentioned getting a juicer (the Vitamix is ideal, but the Montel William's Healthmaster is pretty good and much cheaper).

I bought a flat of tomatoes for $5 today and made a HUGE pot of tomato sauce that I will later use for spaghetti, lasagna, pizza, etc. It will fill 3 ice cream buckets, so I'm planning on freezing 2 and using one in the next couple of days.

Fruits are full of empty carbs and affect you far more than bread, especially whole grain bread which is comprised of mosty complex carbs.

If your bread gets hard too quick, add some oil to the mix.

Cool!

Rye recipe:
3 cups warm water
1 1/2 tablespoons yeast
1 1/2 tablespoons salt
1 1/2 tablespoons caraway seeds, plus more for sprinkling on top
1 cup rye flour
5 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
Cornstarch wash (take 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch and boil w/ 1/2 cup water. Keep stirring)

Prepare as basic recipe but add the seeds to the dough. Before baking paint on the cornstarch wash and sprinkle with caraway seeds then slash parallel cuts across loaf. (450 for about 30 minutes. I guess it's my oven but I go closer to 40 minutes)
