Book Description

Along with the rising cost of living, the price of bread continues to grow, with a standard loaf of bread now costing over GBP1, compared to 50p in 1990 and 33p in 1980 Sales of electric bread-makers have grown by 57% as families turn to a more traditional lifestyle to protect themselves against soaring food bills

4.0 out of 5 stars For the bread machine 29 Oct 2012
By Marand TOP 500 REVIEWER
I can understand the frustration of those who have purchased this book not realising that it is designed for use in conjunction with a bread making machine - the cover shot shown on Amazon only includes the front cover which is silent on the subject and the reference to bread machines in the product description could easily be missed.

If you do have a breadmaker, however, this is a fantastic collection of recipes, mainly breads but a few cakes thrown in too. Most, if not all, recipes have a variation around the theme at the end - this is what brings the recipe total up to 200. Recipes are straightforward, well laid out and with a photo of the finished loaf on the facing page. Many of the bread recipes use the dough setting only, leaving you to remove the dough for proving and finishing by hand.

There is a tremendous choice, ranging from basic breads to more unusual fare and including gluten-free breads. Favourites include oatmeal & buttermilk, olive & tomato bread, minted courgette & lemon loaf (I have another recipe for this but the one given in this book is entirely produced in the bread machine which is very handy), potato & thyme bread (the variation on this is spiced potato bread), onion & red Leicester bread, tomato focaccia, and fougasse. Fruit-based breads include glazed pear & cinnamon loaf (using dried pears and gluten-free), white chocolate & banana loaf and blueberry & vanilla plait. I haven't tried any of the gluten-free recipes, apart from the pear & cinnamon loaf, but they include roasted red pepper cornbread, sundried tomato & herb bread, and roasted vegetable loaf with wild rice.

Well worth the minimal outlay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for breadmakers 21 Dec 2011
By Graid
Whilst it's true that it should be more clear from the description that this is a breadmaker recipe book, for breadmakers this little book is absolutely unbeatable, especially for the price. I own a lot of bread books and out of all of them this is the one I've found I return to most. The recipes are consistently excellent and there is a fantastic variety, with many recipes here that I've not found anywhere else. Many of the recipes only use the breadmaker to make the dough and then the dough is shaped by hand and baked in the oven, which makes for a greater amount of adaptability and versatility. The photographs are great and the small size of the book makes it very handy for just leafing through when you quickly need a recipe for something.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breadmakers, the missing manual... 10 Dec 2012
By techpuppy TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As others have pointed out, this book is slightly misleadingly named and it should be clearer that it's intended for use with a breadmaker. However, it does include a good range of recipes covering much more than the expected range of sweet and savoury loaves, including flat breads (like Naan or Focaccia), party breads (like Stollen or Panettone) ending with a short selection of breadmaker-friendly cakes and gluten-free breads. Like all of the Hamlyn 200 cookbooks recipes are presented on the left page with a colour photo on the facing page - there are variations on most recipes too, making up the 200, and these are easily missed if you're only browsing the headline recipes. Many of the recipes use the breadmaker only to make the dough and once the breadmaker has done the hard work you remove the dough and create round or individual loaves for conventional oven-baking. If you don't have a breadmaker then the recipes will still work but you'll have to figure out your own regimen of kneading and proving because that isn't explained in the method for any recipe. However for existing breadmaker owners this little cookbook is so useful it should have been included in the box with your breadmaker!

1.0 out of 5 stars Love the book, hate the title 16 Mar 2013
By BigBird
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is brilliant, it is full of exciting, interesting and stimulating recipes and really worth the 5 stars I am unable to give it. I really should have read the reviews before I pressed the dreaded 'order now' button. THIS BOOK IS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO OWN BREADMAKERS!! Oh how I feel conned, yes I can pass the book on to a friend who owns a breadmaker then she can gloat over the scrummy things she has made. Make the title clearer and ideally write the same book again for all those who quite happily make bread by hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars One for my collection 30 April 2012
I have made bread for more than 20 years starting with manual methods which, for some recipes, can be extremely tiring and consume many hours although usually in several stages. About 12-15 years ago I saw a TV program where a well-known TV baker and bread-maker was answering a viewer's question and it concerned the use of a bread-making machine. As a professional baker, he did not use one but did admit that machinery is extensively used for some tasks in his bakery - would you want to work 25 kilos of flour into a dough by hand? He thought that they were a good idea and he used two on-air, one started about 2 or 3 hours in advance so that it would be finished on time. He had made another a day earlier so that it would be cold and easy to slice. He admitted that the results were actually very good and I then set to buying one.

My first was relatively basic and very inexpensive and I outgrew it within a year. Its replacement was to have been a Panasonic but the store was out of stock and they substituted a Breadman model, then the top of the range and normally slightly the more expensive. It was very good and had some features that the Panasonic did not have and it lasted until about 2 years ago when the seals around the rotor wore out and it leaked. A new pan cost only 20 less than a new machine so I bought a Panasonic!

Bread-makers should not be despised as they can mix, knead, warm to rise, and then bake. With many, they can be set in advance to have warm (not hot!) bread ready for breakfast if that is what you want. As indicated above, making bread can be time-consuming and require much effort, especially during the kneading process. The bread machine removes all that and allows you to do something else during the 3 hours or so most need for a loaf.
