Recipe Summaries

Trial Recipes

These are summaries of bread machine formulas I baked June-August 2018, working out my approach to bread machine baking in a Panasonic SD-YD250. Most of them are in the Table [T]. Some are for Panasonic machines, and may not work in other machines.  Others are Bread Lover’s Bread Machine Cookbook (“BLBMC”) formulas.  In the recipes I list dry ingredients before moist ingredients and fluids. That’s the way my machine works. Some machines want fluid loaded first.

In the table I identify the recipes by short names.  In these loaves:

  • Flour measured in cups
  • Wheat flour, by Rogers, a Canadian mill.
    • All-Purpose flour; 1 cup = 4.875 (4 7/8) oz = 138 gram. Bread Flour for White Bread; Whole Wheat flour; 1 cup = 4.875 (4 7/8) oz = 138 grams. Whole Wheat Bread Flour (a blend of Whole Wheat and white flour, and added gluten);
  • Rye Flour. In one trial, Nunnweiler Organic Dark (I had a bag in the fridge). Rogers Dark Rye Flour
  • Yeast
    • in tsp; in some trials in grams; 1 tsp = 2.8 g.Trials 1-6 Fleishmann’s Quick-Rise; others SAF Red Instant dry
  • Salt in grams (For table salt 1 tsp = 5.7 grams); the % of the salt in the published recipe;
  • Cm column
    • is a rough measurement or estimate of the height of the loaf; ^ gassed and rose to top of the pan or ballooned / lopsided or asymmetric; * a manual step to deflate the dough.
