...and LOVING it!!! We picked one up last night and have already made two loaves. One plain and one cinnamon raisin. Not sure if it is any cheaper to make your own bread, but it sure does taste alot better. There is nothing like the smell of fresh baked bread floating around the house.

Please do not bake a loaf of delicous bread after 8pm on a work night....

I guarantee you cannot sleep until you taste it.......We slipped in extra gluten for an extra bread rise......It is just whole wheat powder....

Have you ever made bread without a machine? As much as I love the smell of baking bread and the taste of home-made bread, part of the joy for me is the kneading of the dough. It's such a satisfying chore - and I like making the loaves into different shapes and designs, too.

kneading bread is good for the soul. all of the bread i make gets some hand kneading.
someone gave me a used bread machine and we had so much fun with it until it burned up one day. i will likely get a new one this fall.
i do make bread for a living, but it was still fun to throw the stuff in the top and forget about it until the smell takes over the house...and then comes the beep, i'm done.
fresh bread is one of life's simple pleasures...however you get it.

For the last few months, I haven't used the machine to bake, just knead the dough. Right now I am making all the bread by hand but no I do not enjoy kneading. Tiring to say the least. I will be getting a new machine in a few months though. Can hardly wait.

if the hand kneading gets overwhelming, you can divide the ball of dough and knead one for a bit and then go to the other and switch back and forth for the time called for. the resting time counts as part of the kneading time, and the final result should be about the same.
i had to do this when my dough mixer broke a gear and was down for two days, and i needed to make two hundred loaves of bread. was that ever a work-out!

I LOVE fresh baked bread. If I had a machine like that I would look like a cow in a month.

I haven't used ours in a while, now you have me craving fresh baked bread, in any form. I like to make Sally Lunn bread in our machine. Some day when I have more time, I'll make some bread the old-fashioned way, I haven't done that in a long time.
