On the plus side, the book is clearly written and well organised. It also contains some helpful basic hints, particularly for the newly initiated like myself.

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.

I bought this book as I have a bread machine and use it all the time and I hoped this would give me more ideas than the ones in the instruction manual. It is certainly a handsome book but it is not the one I was looking for. If you hope for recipes that you bung in the machine and leave you will find that more than half of them in this book start off in the machine and then need some kneading, proving and oven baking. So for those of us with less time (and possibly less inclination) it is not the answer to you prayers.
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.

Having bought a new bread machine I decided it was time to get some
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!

Format: Hardcover
Just a warning for those who already have Anne Sheasby's "The Big Book of Bread". This book seems to have taken all the bread machine recipes from "The Big Book" and as far as I can tell hasn't included any additional recipes. I have scanned the indexes of both books but not done a 'line by line' comparison - life is too short - so there may be one or two extras but I don't think there is any significant difference. There is nothing wrong with the recipes themselves so if you don't have the other book I can recommend this one, but there is obviously no point in buying the same recipes all over again!

I bought this book after reading the other reviews. It's a great book, full of practical-do-able recipes. Well,worth the money.

The book is divided into nine main sections, these are:
*Introduction
*Bread basics

*Basic and everyday breads

*Basic and everyday rolls

*Flat breads

*Quick breads

*Speciality & festive breads

*Teabreads & tea-time treats

*Gluten-free breads

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.

there are lots of bread machine recipes around but I wanted something that had recipes for making cakes has my machine had facility to make cakes, bake etc. This is one of the best books I have come across in terms of great recipes for cakes in a bread maker. Only tried one thus far which was the blueberry lemon drizzle cake and it is the most moist and tastiest cake I have eaten for a long time and cant wait to make another one and there are lots more recipes to go at. Highly recommended.
