On the minus side, in my opinion the book focuses too much on dough recipes that then need a considerable extra personal time and effort (and I suspect skills that I may or may not have, which is precisely why I bought the machine in the first place). It feels like the writer is of the opinion that bread machines are basically (and merely) dough machines, which is a little bit disappointing.
I would have appreciated more recipes and hints on bread which is mixed, raised and baked to completion by the machine.
Also, new bread machine instruction/recipe manuals have done away with the need for dried milk powder but this book goes back to using it, is it necessary?
It comes in a cellophane wrapper so by the time you have ripped that off and then had a good look at the recipes, to find that it is not quite what you hoped for, you feel you have no right to send it back. And it is not cheap either.
If you have the time and enjoy a more hands on bread machine recipe book then you should find this is very handy. For us 'bung it all in and let it bake' people this wont be the one you want.
advice from one of the many books out there.
The Bread Machine Bible has become just that to me! It has explained in easy terms all the information I needed. Good advice on what not to do also. I made 60 large bread rolls of different varieties for a BBQ in my village and they went down a storm. Very happy to say it was a very good buy!

The introduction covers two pages and tells the reader a little about the history of bread, the nutritional value of bread and also about the recipes included in the book.
The next chapter on "bread basics" is over ten pages and apart from the recipes in my opinion one of the most interesting parts of the book. There is lots of information on things such as different types of flours, yeast and other leavening products as well as the other vital ingredients in bread making. It also mentions using bread mixes, which I think is good of a recipe book not to make you feel bad about using the "easy option". It then goes on to breadmaking techniques, this is referring to the recipes in the book where you only use the machine on the dough programme and then finish making the loaf or rolls yourself.
There is advice on the best way to store your bread including tips for different types of crusts.
The next few pages are about breadmakers, and choosing the right model for you, and almost two pages of useful tips when you're using your breadmaker. Finally there is a page on adapting recipes for use in a breadmaker.
It is then onto the recipes. I really like the way the recipes are set out in the book, the recipes are clearly written stating the preparation time, cooking time and how many loaves/rolls the recipe will make, the ingredients and the technique.Read more ›
