A Review of the Bread Lover’s Bread Machine Cookbook
The Bread Lover’s Cookbook is perhaps one of the best bread making books for those who want to discover all the amazing things one can do with a breadmaker. Although the breadmaker is not as popular as other baking equipment, breadmaking is fun, especially if you have a handy resource for various bread recipes that are not only tasty but also very easy to make.
For home bakers, baking bread can be daunting, but using Beth Hensberger’s Bread Machine Cookbook has made learning how to make bread easy. The bread machine recipes are straight forward, and the steps are easy to follow. The book details each recipe for the bread machine, including the best way to add ingredients to the machine (the order that ingredients go into the machine is important!), which ingredients are best to use, and how to measure the ingredients properly.
The book even teaches you how to make bread without baking it in the bead machine, since you don’t always want a rectangular loaf. Instructions on how to shape and bake any formed bread, like hot dog buns, cinnamon buns or rolls are detailed so that even a beginner can bake bread with success. Baking Bread is EASY.
There are over 300 recipes to try, and each one is delicious. Begin simply with basic white breads, then work on making whole grain breads, which are healthy for your family, and so easy to bake in a bread machine. There are recipes for savory breads and sweet breads. In the advanced section of the book, Hensberger gives you recipes for bread starters, so that you can make sourdough breads that taste just like you got them in San Francisco. You can even find recipes for Gluten free Bread! Perfect for those families who have to deal with food allergies.
Users love how clear and easy-to-understand the book is. Hensperger clearly intended the book to be useful to those who have experienced more than their share of frustrations with machines and instruction manuals that did not just deliver the baking results hoped for. The author makes learning about the baking process and the science behind it fun.
The bread maker recipes range from the casual to the more sophisticated, so there is a wide array of bread choices that users can choose to bake for any time of the day and for any occasion. The recipes are also tailored to provide the best results no matter the make or model of machine, making this recipe book suitable for everyone who loves bread baking or at the least, are eager to learn.
One of the few complaints is that some of the bread recipes do not seem to be tested but rather derivations of other recipes. Some users experienced following the instructions to the letter only to come up with bread that rose higher than the capacity of the bread pan. Others complain of some recipes being too complicated for beginners.
Waking up in the morning to the aroma of fresh bread made from one of the many bread machine recipes in this book has become a treat for the whole family. Load the ingredients for your favorite recipe into the bread machine in the evening, set the timer, and awaken to home made bread for breakfast, or lunchtime sandwiches. Once you start baking your own bread machine breads, you may never go back to buying bread from the store.
