My mum gave me her old breadmaker this summer, there was a few recipes in the instructions but i think the amounts of ingredients were translated wrong so the results weren't great. I tried searching for recipes online without much luck, and then i found this book. I bought it first as kindle edition, then realized it's a bit awkward having a cookbook on kindle so bought the paperback as well. It's brilliant. My breadmaker is for 1lb and 1.5 lb, the recipes in the book are all given for 1 lb, 1.5 lb and 2 lb, so there is no need to calculate anything. It also appears very well researched, the writers tried all of the recipes, which is reassuring. There is a variety of recipes, white breads, wholemeal, rye, with vegetables or sweet, also recipes for doughs, so the ingredients can be put in, the breadmaker mixes and rises it, and then you can take it out and continue. i think it's a great book , i don't really like supermarket breads because of all the additives and softeners and so on, and it's so easy to put all the ingredients in the breadmaker, takes five minutes. so far over the past few weeks i've done mainly wholewheat breads, wholewheat with rye or seeds, and yesterday i've made jalapeno and cheddar bread - i simply grated asda's mexicana cheddar i it, and it was perfect, also replaced half the white flour with brown bread flour without any bad effects. we ate nearly whole loaf straight away.
I'm in the UK, so using either Tesco fast action dried yeast or Allisons dried yeast. The breads are rising quite fast and once even collapsed, so when making plain bread with no seeds or cheese or such, i put tiny bit less yeast.
There are some breads with ingredients that might be difficult to get in the UK and some that i know i won't make, like rye with sauerkraut but this is the case with every cookbok i got, some recipes i love, and some i wouldn't touch with a pole. Anyways, i highly reccommend this book to everyone with breadmaker.

By AJS (London) TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 18 April 2012
Format: Paperback
An American offering that mostly caters for the US market. It contains a wide variety of recipes, in the main, all in three sizes generally 1lb for the smaller machines, 1 1/2lb for the medium size and 2lb for the largest.

As with any US cookery book, you will encounter some ingredients that are unfamiliar but obtainable if you find the common UK names and others that are simply unobtainable from the usual places such as supermarkets. In some instances, a little time spent on-line will show that there are a few suppliers based in the UK that stock a variety of US and/or Canadian products, probably not everything you may want but some. They usually supply the US citizens who either work here or live here with a British partner. You may be able to order from some suppliers in the US although some will not permit overseas orders. Some other ingredients may be found in health-food shops as they are standard vegan ingredients (the vegan movement is much stronger in the US than here). To use some recipes may need time and advance planning so that ingredients are to hand when needed.

This is a book that includes broad advice and a wide variety of recipes, not just bread. Not all machines will have the features to use every recipe provided you have the ingredients, but they will be in the minority at the worst. Overall, a very valuable offering worthy of the full 5-stars if only its content was more UK-friendly.

There is a companion volume, 'More Bread Machine Magic' that contains a larger variety of recipes.

I was given this book a few years ago and love it. I actually own the US version (I live in LA) and it completely reinspired me to get back into bread making. I was bought a bead maker and the recipe book that came with it did the job well enough for a while. The breads in this book, though, are so varied and you'll want to try them all. I make notes in my copy to remind me of the taste and texture of each loaf I make. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys making and eating a variety of breads.

HASH(0x8b648d14) out of 5 stars My favorite bread machine book 15 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
My mom had this book and I had copied so many recipes out of it, I finally just had to buy my own. She is on her second copy. This is hands down my favorite bread machine book. The Sunday Morning Apricot Bread, Apple Butter Wheat, Onion Soup Bread, Sauerkraut Rye...all big winners. The garlic-cheese rolls should be illegal. Fluffy, light, buttery...mmmmmm.
PS My loaves have never collapsed or been overly salty (and I'm sensitive to that), but they do require a bit more flour. This is probably due to my machine and not the recipes, which are well-tested.

HASH(0x8b77f0cc) out of 5 stars Don't give up on your bread machine until you try this! 18 Dec. 2004
By Shasta's D - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After the first year using my bread machine, I found that the recipes that came with it weren't working as well. I resorted to bread-machine mixes from the store. Until I saw this at the library. Every recipe I've tried has been great. I regret I haven't tried more but we keep making the same ones - they are so good!

The book has a great intro section that educates you about ingredients, such as keeping yeast in the freezer to extend its life. There is a large range of recipes. And, my favorite feature, each recipe gives measures for 3 loaf sizes. I have made each size based on the number eating. I am not big on cooking; this book gives great results for your kitchen time.

I am ordering a copy of this and the next book (More Bread Machine Magic). I plan on giving one to my sister and keeping one for myself. The hard part will be deciding which one to keep!

HASH(0x8babde88) out of 5 stars Breads you'll actually eat! 2 Feb. 2007
By Lori Harris - Published on
Format: Paperback
After we got our bread machine, we received a 600+ page bread machine cookbook. The recipes we tried were quite involved and tasteless. I had all but given up until I read the reviews for Bread Machine Magic. The reviewers are right. This cookbook is spectacular. I've tried three of the breads already--Sweet Oatmeal, Marmalade and Oats and Oatmeal Spice-- and they all are melt-in-your-mouth fantastic. Today I'm going to make Rick's Seven Grain which I have no doubt will be another Rehberg and Conway winner. Buy this book and your bread machine will actually be used regularly rather than never seeing daylight in the deepest corner of your cupboard.

HASH(0x8b7c1a08) out of 5 stars Excellent cookbook...great recipes 23 Feb. 2011
By Happy Pony Driver - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am stunned at the negative reviews of this book. If there is anything to "gripe" about, it's that this is a simple paperback with no photos. I happen to like photos in cookbooks. But it's also very affordable so you can't expect glossy pages filled with photos. I bought a Zojirushi Mini for myself for Christmas and have found that most cookbooks list recipes for 1.5 and 2 lb loaves. I am perfectly capable of recalculating quantities for recipes; I just don't want to!!! This book has a mini chart for each recipe, for all three sizes of machine. And a chart is much easier and FASTER to read than a written out recipe. I can set up my bread machine in just a few minutes more than it takes to set up the coffee maker. I stick around to check the consistency of the first knead and then I just let the machine do its job. So far I have tried a number of recipes and there have been NO FLOPS, and each loaf has been attractive and delicious. When I reviewed my Zo, I actually recommended purchasing this book as a companion since the instruction manual has only a handful of rather boring basic recipes in it.

HASH(0x8ba43b4c) out of 5 stars Good recipes in 3 sizes of loaf 5 July 2007
By Papmom - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book with the mini-Zojirushi and it's a good combo. Each recipe has measurement for 3 different loaf sizes: one, one-and-a-half, and 2 pound loaves. The mini-Zo uses the one pound recipes. The Herb Bread recipe is fabulous. They include good tips to help you get the best results out of your machine.
