Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

There is nothing like the aroma of fresh-baked bread. Now authors Washburn and Butt, home economists and publishers of The Bread Basket, a newsletter for bread machine owners, offer cooks over 125 different recipes that should keep their bread machines busy. From English Muffins and Focaccia to Orange Pecan Loaf and Prairie Bread, the recipes clearly illustrate that cooks have a wide range of choices beyond the basic recipes featured in most bread machine manuals. One of the best things about this practical cookbook is the simple, easy-to-understand layout of each recipe. Both U.S. and metric ingredient measurements are provided, and each recipe has its own tips and variation ideas. A good choice for most public libraries.AJohn Charles, Scottsdale P.L., AZ

When I replaced my 7-yr-old bread machine, the recipes from my collection of best-seller cookbooks didn't work in my new generation machine. Then I tried AMERICA'S BEST. Perfect every time, with no adjustments needed! Since I bake in super-humid Florida and cool crisp New England, recipes have to be absolutely reliable. The Italian Herb Bread has become a family favorite, and the Saffron Currant Bath Buns got rave reviews at our Elizabethan Supper. I am especially happy that AMERICA'S BEST recipes give excellent results with basic grocery-store ingredients, without requiring special (expensive) additives. And I am happiest that they taste good.

I bought 2 bread machine books at the same time. While the other had a much more sophisticated format and general discussion of bread making, this book offers a simple direct format and specific directions (with aside tips occasionally) for a wide variety of bread types. The authors also offer, with good directions, the option of breads mixed in the machine but finished as free-form hearth breads. Of the ten or so breads I have tried, results have been excellent.

I borrowed this book from the library and am so impressed, I want my own copy! It covers everything you could ever want to make with a yeast dough! One of Washburn & Butt's personal favourites - Country Harvest Bread - was a huge hit at a recent ladies luncheon. Today we're trying the Butter Pecan Bagels. Baking one's own bread is very satisfying! I highly recommend this book if you're going to give it a go!

I have had a bread machine for 6 years. I love my homemade bread. I usually just get recipes online, but they never come out quite right. So I got this book at my library and tried a few recipes, and I have yet to make something that didn't come out as it is suppose to. I bought this book and make bread from it all the time. I love this book! With that said, there are a lot of recipes that dough is prepared in the bread machine and you reshape it and such. But if you want quality bread and don't mind getting you hands dirty a little bit you will love this book. There also are plenty of recipes that are dump and go. So if you want something with bread making abilities for all levels, this is the book.

I checked this book out from the library so many times that I figured I should buy it for my collection. The recipes are well written and easy to follow. I love the bagels, pizza dough (which I've made countless times in the lastt 2 years), batarde....
