I just got myself a Kenwood Breadmaker and wonder if anyone one of you would be kind enough to give me some tips or maybe even some recipes.

Im more interested in those health breads like whole meal or fruit flavoured loaf.

Tks

Your breadmaker should come with a recipe book - something is wrong if you don't have one in the set.

Do note that the sequence of adding the ingredients is important for bread-makers. At first follow the measurements strictly. Once comfortable, you may modify the ingredients or settings. For example, I prefer the settings for whole-meal bread and used it even for white bread and I got better results.

Do note that there is a timer setting, hence you can put in all the ingredients, set the timer to ensure that the bread is ready when you wake up and leave it to the machine to work while you sleep. Get piping hot loaf of bread in the morning.

It seems there are packaged breadmaker flour-mixes available in Singapore in most supermarkets. They have a good variety of nuts, fruits and flavoured types. I have yet to see any here, but maybe i haven't been going around the right places? There are lots of breadmaker recipes in the internet, just do a search.
one link to check out (http://www.carrsbreadmaker.info/recipes/index.html)
Happy baking :)

I've heard a lot of good things about the Amway breadmaker.

(No, I am not an Amway member).

did you guys know you can also bake bread with a rice cooker?
learnt about it in an Anime called "Yakitate Japan"

Ingredients:
350g of Bread Flour
21g of butter
21g of sugar
35cc of milk
180cc of water
5g of dry yeast
6.5g of salt

Instructions
1. Put flour into a the mixer bowl
2. Add sugar and salt
3. dissolve yeast with a little water
4. add the remaining water and milk
5. Mix ingredients.
6. kneed it till it becomes a dough
7. pick up the dough and add the butter
8. continue kneeding till it no longer feels sticky
9. make a round shape
10. Clean and dry the rice cooker bowl.
11. Put the dough in the rice cooker bowl for 60 minutes at room temperature to let it ferment.
12. When the dough rises to about double the size, use your fist, and drop it into the dough, removing all the extra gas. DO NOT grind the dough
13. then leave it there to ferment for another 60 minutes
14. Turn on the rice cooker.
15. After an hour, open the rice cooker lid and turn the dough.
16. Cook for another 60 minutes.
17. After 60 minutes, turn the dough again.
18. after turning it 3 times, you're done.

Well, the reason why the bread is hard on the following day is bcos for home-made bread we dun put softener like the commercial one... So it is normal for ur bread to turn hard on the next day... :)

Hi, I just bought a kenwood breadmaker yesterday too. I bought this bread mix from cold storage at S.Parade. I tried this mix out and the bread turned out perfect!! The bread mix is italian herb from Krusteaz. It cost about $9.99 per box. I'm gonna look for and try out some more recepies.
From what I've been reading about baking the perfect bread with the bread maker, the correct amount of ingredients is very important and also where you set up the breadmaker. Because the room temperature will effect the rise of the dough..i.e..in a draughty or warm kitchen....

Talking about toasting breads. Gardenia toasts better than Hi5. Hi5 slices toast in a very patchy manner. Not at all to my liking! When I'm depressed I eat toasted bread! ;)

How many loaves of bread can you make with one box? If it's only 1, guess it's rather expensive, considering a Gardenia wholemeal loaf costs only RM2.50.

Well, it relieves me of my depression somehow :) I think its that feeling of biting into something crispy laced with butter :) It's bliss unexplained!

Scientifically though, some people resort to certain foods to beat stress and depression, and some tend to indulge in binge eating. Maybe it's the anandamides, maybe the omega 3 acids. I'm not quite sure as of now ;)

Ingredients for bread - RM12
Kenwood Bread Maker - RM499
Satisfaction from a loaf of perfect home-made delicious bread - PRICELESS!! :cool:

For those pre-mix ingredients as mentioned earlier, is it for one loaf of bread?

Firefly don't have a bread maker but daddy does. Just found for him the reason why them bread don't tast nice and don't rise...High Protein Flour. Normal weat flour don't work. You must buy them High Protein Flour. Then just adding the rest of them wholemeal, poppy seed and other stuff to your own liking. Cheaper than buying ready mix stuff and each loaf made is actually cheaper than off the shelve...cal without taking into consideration of the bread maker's cost and electric and water used. :rolleyes:

Well, basically you can just get about 1 1/2 pound of bread..(one loaf) Yes it is kinda expensive....but it's a specialty bread and once in a blue moon trying out something different. I wont be buying it again...as, I've bought my own spices and herbs...so I can do it on my own...cheaper in the end!!


PJS hmm.. kinda interested in the breadmaker too, been checking out Kenwoods but Best Denki price is Rm499! How many loaves of bread do I need to break even eh?

I've checked out several places before buying my breadmaker...everywhere sells kenwood at the same price. I bought it at best denki in Isetan..if you have an isetan card member you get a 5% discount.I'm not sure if it is the same at every BestDenki...The other brand that I saw was "Princess" brand at MetroJaya and it cost around $350.
Yes, buying breadmaker is expensive and if you're not a really big bread eater than it probably wont be worth buying. But My family loves bread and we love all those specialty bread...so, it works out cheaper for us in the end, I guess..Besides you can also make your own buns, crossoints and pizzas with a breadmaker...Yes, You can do it on your own without using a breadmaker...but I'm too lazy to knead the dough myself and besides, i'm not very good at kneading it (always comes out too hard )...This way, I get a perfectly kneaded dough for my buns and pizza...without getting all sweaty and sore arms...less of a mess too!! So, get a breadmaker if you're into these kinda stuff...but dont if the breadmaker is just gonna sit around becoming a decoration on your kitchen counter..like some of my friends!! ;)

Ya, I have mentioned earlier it is normal for the bread to turn hard next morning.. But just found this in the website of the Taiwanese show - Good Idea.. way to make hard bread turn soft again..
Well, I have not tried it.. may be u can try..
http://tv.ettoday.com/ettv/article/291-21386.htm
I shall summarise it also.. :D It says u can put the hardened bread into microwave and set it to de-frost for about 1 minute.. then u will have a nice soft bread.. :rolleyes:
