Bread Machine Recipes

Some sweet friends got a new bread machine and I thought I would share some of my tried and true recipes. I hope everyone enjoys them.

Clone of a Cinabon

1 cup warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees
2 eggs, room temperature
1/3 cup margarine, melted
4 1/2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast

1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, softened

1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese,
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1. Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press Start.
2. After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
3.Roll dough into a 16x21 inch rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
4.Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.

Russian Black Bread
1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 1/2 cups bread flour
1 cup rye flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons margarine
2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
1 tablespoon caraway seed
1/4 teaspoon fennel seed (optional)
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1.Place ingredients into the bread machine in order suggested by the manufacturer.
2.Use the whole wheat, regular crust setting.
3.After the baking cycle ends, remove bread from pan, place on a cake rack, and allow to cool for 1 hour before slicing.

This is my husband's hands down favorite. I make it so often, I have the recipe taped on the inside of my baking cabinet.

Honey Oatmeal Bread
1 cup water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 1/3 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
1. Place ingredients in bread machine pan in the order suggested by the manufacturer.
2.Select Light Crust or Basic setting, and press Start.

This is the best recipe for bagels I have ever found. It makes a lot but they are very good.

Bread Machine Bagels
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45
degrees C)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
3 cups bread flour
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
3 quarts boiling water
3 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon cornmeal
1 egg white
3 tablespoons poppy seeds
1.Place water, salt, sugar, flour and yeast in the bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough setting.
2.When cycle is complete, let dough rest on a lightly floured surface. Meanwhile, in a large pot bring 3 quarts of water to a boil. Stir in 3 tablespoons of sugar.
3.Cut dough into 9 equal pieces, and roll each piece into a small ball. Flatten balls. Poke a hole in the middle of each with your thumb. Twirl the dough on your finger or thumb to enlarge the hole, and to even out the dough around the hole. Cover bagels with a clean cloth, and let rest for 10 minutes.
4.Sprinkle an ungreased baking sheet with cornmeal. Carefully transfer bagels to boiling water. Boil for 1 minute, turning half way through. Drain briefly on clean towel. Arrange boiled bagels on baking sheet. Glaze tops with egg white, and sprinkle with your choice of toppings.
5.Bake in a preheated 375 degree F (190 degrees C) oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until well browned.


  1. Hi Jeanette,
    Wow ... you had me at Cinabon! ;)
    Maybe I need to drag out the ol' breadmaker soon.

    I checked out your dining chair makeover as well. They look great! It's nice that you had enough fabric for a table runner as well.
