Does anyone know how to use a bread machine to make regular bread? I want the bread machine to do the work and then put it in a regular bread pan to finish and look like a real loaf of bread.
I make bread like this all the time. Just put your ingredients (enough for 1 loaf of bread) in the bread machine. First put in the liquid and the shortening or oil, then add the salt, sugar, flour and yeast. Set your bread machine to the "Dough" cycle. After a few minutes of mixing and kneading, it will beep. At this point, click the Stop or Off button.
Remove the pan from the machine, and dump the dough into a greased bowl. Turn once, cover with a towel and let rise until double in bulk. Shape into a loaf and place in greased loaf pan. Turn the oven on to 375 degrees F to preheat. Let it rise again until just a little above the edge of the pan. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes.
Remove from oven and let set for about 2 minutes and then dump from the pan onto a thick towel. Wrap hot bread in the towel and let it set until cool. Slice and eat or store in a plastic bag until ready to slice and serve.
