Editorial Reviews

Review

The first bread machine cookbook on the market, this classic offers more than 130 recipes for white, whole-grain, cheese, fruit, vegetable, herb and spice breads, sourdough loaves, rolls, croissants and breadsticks. Recipes appear in 3 sizes to accomodate any machine make or model. This popular book inspired a 6-book series. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

If it contains flours and grains, Donna Rathmell German has probably written a book about it! She is the leading expert on bread machine baking, and the author of many books on the subject, including The Bread Machine Cookbook series, The Pasta Machine Cookbook, The Best Pizza is Made at Home and The New Book of Waffles and Pizzelles.

Everything we've made so far has turned out absolutely perfectly.

So I guess if you have an older machine, get the older edition; if you have a newer machine, buy the updated copy of the book.

I bought this book for my step-daughter for Christmas, along with a bread machine.

I have both the original Bread Machine Cookbook and book #2, and the recipes are great, well worth 5 stars. Also the introductions give a lot of useful advise.
IMPORTANT: A word of warning if you buy a used copy. I bought copies of both, in "like new condition," and they arrived as promised, but in using the recipes, I had one failed load after another. By accident, in looking at a my Mom's new books (which do not state they are revised editions), I found that all the recipes I had tried (and nearly all the recipes in both books) now have totally different amounts listed for the ingredients. For example, the Sally Lund bread on page 25 (original book) has the measurements of 7 of the 8 ingredients changed/corrected (the yeast is now doubled, and the flour increased by 1/3). Many recipes in both books have similar major changes. I had to buy new copies, and using the corrected amounts in the new books I then began baking great bread. If you have older copies of either of these books, and are getting disgusting goopy bread, do not automatically think it is the fault of you, your ingredients, or bread machine. Check out a newer book and compare ingredients.

Oh, I just wanted to wholeheartedly DISAGREE with the two negative reviews on this book! This was the first book I bought after I got my bread machine five years ago, and I've never had anything but beautiful results from every recipe I've tried, and I RARELY have to adjust anything. I will say it's important to read all the advice in the first chapters before diving into the recipes, particularly regarding checking the machine after the first few minutes of kneading. I have all six of the books in this series now (the sixth just arrived today, and I can't wait to try it!), and I find German to be thorough and very easy to understand. I think this book would be invaluable to anyone owning a bread machine.

Ever since I received a bread machine as my birthday gift this year, I had been looking for a good bread machine cookbook. I checked many book stores, but none they had turned me on. Then, a neighbor friend let me borrow hers (this title) and I fell in love with it! While many other cookbooks cover rather unusual bread recipes (i.e. Sage Raisin Bread, Curry Rice Dinner Rolls), this book contains the recipes for many good old wonderful breads we already know ... only better! I was desperately looking for a great white bread recipe, and my search was over when I found "Sally Lunn" in this cookbook. Its texture and flavor are incredible! My whole family love it! I strongly recommend this cookbook to anyone who has a bread machine.

I've been a fan of bread machines for about a decade now. I've owned The Bread Machine Cookbooks 1-4 plus the Worldwide Sourdough by Donna German. What I found is that there are SO MANY good recipes in #1 that I almost never use #2-4, unless I'm searching for something specific (like a DIFFERENT recipe to use up pumpkin, apple or onion). I've owned other bread cookbooks but have since given them all away. I have great success converting her regular breads to whole wheat (Ex: if it calls for 3 cups flour I'll put in 2.5 cup whole wheat flour plus .5 cup white flour). I like things seasoned strongly, too, so I tend to triple her spices or poppy seeds or citrus peel amounts. Onion / apple can only be doubled, though, and it does change the consistency a bit.

I usually rate the recipes in my cookbooks (so I remember whether or not to make them again) but I stopped bothering with this book, since they're almost always excellent. I use #1 often, and the others almost never because #1 meets my needs almost every time. (Sourdough requires maintaining "starter," which I'm just not up to.) In fact, I'm purchasing another book, new, just to have a shiny unmarked copy (and to let the person I lent my old one to keep it). My recommendation: Buy this one. Later, IF you make so much bread that you actually want more variety, THEN spend your money on different varieties.

This is the one to buy. This little book is absolutely the best out of the plethora bread machine cookbooks available. I love cookbooks, I love bread, I love my bread machine. I own six bread machine cookbooks, I've checked out a couple of dozen more from various libraries, I've pored over new ones in the bookstores. This is the one I reach for over and over and over again when I am ready to bake bread (and the next two runner-ups are the Bread Machine Cookbook II and the Bread Machine Cookbook III). The recipes are basic - white bread, wheat bread, rye bread, and progress with variations, through sourdoughs and simple dough recipes - hamburger buns, etc. Other editions will bring you the fancier and trickier breads. Master this one first; you will not be sorry.

I bought this book when I bought my Toastmaster bread machine a couple months ago, b/c I've had the author's pasta machine and pizza books for a long time and love them. I made one recipe from the guide that came w/ the machine, and then moved on to her book. Every recipe has been wonderful and turned out perfectly. I have sometimes needed to add about 1 tsp of water to the dough after it has kneaded for 10 minutes, but that is the only adjusting I've had to do. I've tried about a dozen recipes so far, from every chapter, and have not been disappointed. I recommend that every new bread machine owner try this book!
