How To Make Bread In A Bread Maker. Delicious moist bread cooked at home in the bread maker machine. The easiest bread maker recipe you will ever find, and it will teach you everything you need to know about how to make bread in a bread maker.
As this year on RecipeThis.com is inspired by our Mrs Beeton Cookbook we felt it was our duty to go and buy a bread maker machine and eat excessive amounts of fresh bread this year.
We had a bread maker machine many years ago. In the end it was sold and only used about twice. As I recall it was a wedding present when we got married in the beginning of 2003. It was a great bread machine, it just came along at a time, when we were just not that into making our own bread.
In fact, back then we had that shameful processed foods diet. Most of our food came from Aldis and it would involve every type of frozen breaded chicken and fish that you could think of. It was then served with frozen chips or even vegetables from a can.
Clearly, we were young then and didn’t know much better!
But we have another bread maker machine now and as a family that love to eat on a budget and are totally into cheap family meals, then there is no better investment than a bread maker.
If you don’t have one yet, then we suggest you have a browse and get yourself a good one 😊
We got our bread maker machine in the Black Friday Deals. I call this my electric buying time as its when I buy vast amounts of electricals, when they are at their best price. This year for example we got our bread maker machine, a new laptop and new electrical presents for the kids for Christmas.
When we got our bread maker machine out, we set to work. We read through the instructions and thought to ourselves that the art of how to make bread in a bread maker, must be so much more difficult than this.
Were we missing something? It seems not as our bread was soon out of the bread maker, being sliced and then served with melted butter on top. Just because warm bread with melted butter on is so amazing!
We have tweaked it a little. But this must be the dream recipe when it comes to how to make bread in a bread maker. So, enjoy and let the freshly homemade bread smell, take over your kitchen the way it has taken over ours.

- Place 300ml of water into the bottom of your bread maker.
- Place all the other ingredients into the bread maker (apart from the yeast).
- Then sprinkle the yeast over the top of the ingredients.
- Place the lid on the bread maker and cook on the light setting. It will then start the process and take approximately 3 hours to cook including kneading the bread for you.
This bread maker recipe is big enough to feed a family of 5 for lunch sandwiches or for serving with homemade soup. It makes 1 kilo/2 pounds of fresh bread. Remember to adjust the cooking time, if you are cooking a really small loaf or a really big loaf. The bread will not rise if the yeast is added directly to the water. Therefore, make sure you add the yeast right on top instead.
How To Make Bread In A Bread Maker Costs
I thought it would fun to compare notes and to see just how cheap our bread maker bread is, compared to buying shop bought bread.
First of all, the price of a large loaf of bread is about 1,99€ a loaf. Or this is discounted down to half price (or slightly less) if they have a deal on it. This bread is on pink sticker. This means it is close to its sell by date and must be used very soon.
This is about the same size of one of our loaves that we have just made. So, for an equal price compare we need to be making our bread for a lot less than the usual price of 1,99€ for it to be worth our while.
How To Make Bread In A Bread Maker Ingredients Cost:
- Plain Flour = 0,18€
- Butter = 0,03€
- Sugar = 0,07€
- Milk Powder = 0,05€
- Salt = 0,005
- Yeast = 0,07€
- Total Cost Per Bread Loaf = 0,45€/$0.52
- Total Cost Per Serving = 0,09€/$0.10
Wow. I mean how can something so delicious that tastes so luxurious just cost 9 cents per person. Then if you compare it to the 1,99 cent price that we are currently buying a same sized bread loaf, this is a great saving and makes you realise just how big the mark up is on supermarket bread.
As well as this, it is still much cheaper than what it would cost us if we were to buy it when it is reduced on pink sticker deals.
I should also mention that the bread I photographed at the supermarket was the cheap as chips variety, so imagine how much you would have paid for the branded bread.
If you haven’t done so yet, then you seriously need to be following our how to make bread in a bread maker recipe, just to see how cheap and amazing it really is!
