Bread Machine Loaves – Bread Flour


Bread machine recipes have to be customized for machines – there are no standard recipes. I adapt recipes, mainly from the Bread Lover’s Bread Machine Cookbook (“BLBMC”).

I worked out my approach to yeast and low sodium in baking in a Panasonic SD-YD250 for medium (1.5 lb.) loaves June, July and August, 2018 do deal with the fact that BLBMC recipes did not work in that machine.  For 50% salt, I reduce salt and yeast by 50%. I adjusted yeast for BLBMC recipes baked in Panasonic SD-YD250 machine. The BLBMC recipes for white bread loaves worked in the Panasonic with the adaptation. When I started to bake in a Zojirushi BB-PAC20, I changed my method of writing recipes in tables, and updated tables.

Here are a few bread flour sandwich loaf recipes, including:

  • sandwich loaves, 100% bread flour, with some dry milk (milk powder);
  • sandwich loaf with up to 33% whole wheat;
  • sandwich loaf with specialty flour and seeds
