    • How to prepare a bread machine mix- without a bread machine

      How to Make Bread Machine Mixes by hand Have you found a wonderful bread machine mix, but alas, you don't yet have a bread machine? Don't fret, you don't have to have a breadmaker to enjoy those great recipes.

      To Prepare by Hand:
      Gather the ingredients needed to complete the mix, (such as milk or water, honey, yeast, any nuts or fruits, etc). In a small bowl mix the yeast in the warm water, set aside. Dump the Bread Machine Mix dry ingredients package into a large bowl, add the yeast mixture to the bowl. Add melted butter (but only lukewarm or it will kill the yeast).
      Stir until the mass starts to stick together. When you cannot comfortably stir any further, dump the dough onto a floured surface and begin kneading. (The dough will likely be slightly wetter than you can handle by hand. A tablespoon or so of flour on the counter should make it just right. Do not add too much flour--a softer dough will rise better.) Knead the dough until it is elastic--ten to twelve minutes. Place it in a greased bowl, cover it, and let it rise until doubled--about an hour.

      To Prepare by Mixer:
      Gather the ingredients needed to complete the mix, (such as milk or water, honey, yeast, any nuts or fruits, etc). In a small bowl mix the yeast in the warm water, set aside. Dump the Bread Machine Mix dry ingredients package into the mixer bowl. Add the yeast and water and mix on medium speed using the dough hook attachment. Add the melted butter and continue mixing on medium speed for about 5 minutes. This process allows the gluten to develop.
      If the dough is too sticky, add one tablespoon flour. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it and let it rise until doubled--about an hour.

      After the dough has Risen:

      Once the dough has risen, it can be formed into rolls, a single pan-shaped loaf, or a free-standing loaf (such as french bread or italian bread) and placed in a greased pan.

      Cover and let rise again.

      Bake the pan-shaped loaf or free standing loaf at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until done. The loaf will be golden brown and will sound "hollow" when tapped. (It should be about 190F internally).

      Bake rolls for 18 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees or until done.
