So far we are two for two with the bread machine. My first loaf was honey whole wheat and can I just tell you how thrilling it is to walk in the door to the smell of freshly baked bread!? Heaven. The next day I decided to try out just a basic french bread loaf. The kids devoured it when they got home from school. I have to say the crust was amazing, super crunchy and the inside was moist and soft. Delicious. I think I may be starting a bad habit baking fresh bread daily. But I can’t help it. It even motivated Aaron to stop home one day for lunch because he wanted to use the bread to make himself a sandwich. I can’t wait to pick up a few more ingredients and try out some new recipes. The kids are begging for the cinnamon swirl bread, but that would involve me being home the whole time so that I can remove the dough, sprinkle the cinnamon and then replace for baking. Maybe on the weekend we will try that. But I have to say, it is so easy I’m embarrassed to even call it baking. You put the ingredients in in a certain order, apparently the yeast cannot touch the wet ingredients, press 2-3 buttons and then 3-5 hours later (depending on the size of loaf and type of bread you are making), tada! Fresh baked bread.

  1. Need details! What bread maker did you get? And does it come with the recipes? Is it REALLY that easy? We got one for a wedding gift many many years ago & I’m sure they’ve improved the technology since then. Please share any & all details. YUM!!!!

  2. Yes, details! We have the Cuisinart Convection Breadmaker. It is THAT easy. I put in the ingredients in the right order, press a few buttons and it kneads, rises, and bakes the bread. I’m sure some more fancy recipes call for me to add things in later in the process, but so far I haven’t attempted those.

  3. Yes, it’s the same one as in your link, and I’ve been using the recipes that came with it. A little book with a few dozen recipes in it. So far I have tried the honey whole wheat and the french bread. I haven’t purchased a separate recipe book but will probably just search online for some more when I get tired of the ones that came with it.
