My Early Christmas Present Revealed*

Today’s Food Post is my Early Christmas Present :  Bread Maker

Yes -that what I asked for. I have had one before and really missed mine. But this item was hard to find since they have gone out of fashion. Bath,Bed & Beyond only keeps 2 in stock and was told to shop on line for a better selection. I didn’t want anything complected -but i did want some certain features.  On line you can find a large selection -priced from high to low  & something for every budget if you are interested in this item. This is what I bought that fit my needs and wallet.   Lisa 



Features I wanted 

  • Delay time
  • Fast bake option
  • Gluten Free
  • Making Jam setting
  • Loaf size setting/ Crust options


This Oster Express Bake  had all I needed.  Yesterday my son & I tried the machine and a recipe out. It was nice having toast fresh bread for an afternoon snack. Orange & cranberry  marmalade is on the menu for Christmas out of the machine as is this next bread we are trying : Raisin Bread 

Bread flour is recommended in the machine. No Bread flour? 

Just replace the bread flour called for in the recipe with an equal amount of allpurpose flour, and proceed as usual. What’s the Difference Between Bread Flour and AllPurpose Flour? A bit of protein. … The extra protein in bread flour results in a slightly higher rise, but you’ll still get a good rise with allpurpose.

Raisin Bread (1.5lb in Bread Machine)

  • 7/8 cups water
  • 1 1/2 Tbs butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 C bread flour
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 11/2 Tbsp dry milk
  • 1 teaspoon  Cinnamon
  • 13/4  teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 3/4 C raisin

Follow Manufacturers directions for hot tasty bread.  Enjoy Need more Recipes :
