Old-fashioned bread the new-fashioned way, Betty calls it. Easy, convenient, modern. There's no knead for loafing. Not with that fabulous combination in the kitchen: Betty Crocker and the bread machine.
The construction of this book, first of all, is wonderful. The cover is hard and the binding is heavy, enameled spiral. Each page lays flat on the counter, or you can hold the book open on one arm while doing something with the other hand. This suggests that Betty Crocker wrote her bread-baking cookbook with serious use in mind. She certainly tested her recipes. A variety of bread machines were used, which means that each recipe was tested a number of different times. Betty tells you exactly what kind of flour she used, as well as salt, size of eggs, kind of yeast, etc. She leaves nothing to chance.
Bread machine baking has its own peculiarities, and Betty addresses all these right up front, the hows and how-tos (as well as the whys and wherefores) of getting the perfect loaf every time. There's a troubleshooting section, as well as a frequently asked question section. Then it's right into the recipes, all 130 of them.
There are Good and Savory Loaves (Cheese Onion Bread) and Wholesome Grain Loaves (Toasted Almond Whole Wheat Bread), Fruit and Vegetable Harvest Loaves (Dried Apricot Bread), Smaller Can Be Just Right Loaves (these are one-and-a-half-pound loaves), and then several chapters on breads you start in the bread machine, but finish in the oven. These include braided sweet breads, pizza dough, rustic-style breads, and coffeecakes.
Any bread machine owner is going to love to loaf with Betty Crocker. --Schuyler Ingle
Everyone loves fresh bread, but not the time it takes to make it. Bread machines are hot items in the kitchen because they take the work out of making homemade bread. Even better, Betty Crocker takes the mystery out of the bread machine and brings you easy-to-use recipes for both 1 1/2-pound and 2-pound loaves that work for all the popular bread machine models. We've packed this book with over 100 recipes to tempt your tastebuds. There are delicious bread recipes for classic favorites, rustic breads, sweet doughs, coffeecakes and buns. Betty Crocker's Bread Machine Cookbook also offers a host of recipes for doughs to mix, then shape and bake in a conventional oven -- such as foccacia, breadsticks and pizza doughs -- with easy-to-follow illustrations on how to shape and trim the loaves. Best of all, you can trust these recipes will work in your bread machine because the Betty Crocker kitchens have tested the recipes in several different machines to ensure success at home. We've also loaded up this book to include information on bread machine ingredients; glossary of bread machine ingredients, techniques, and terms; and a breakdown of the various features found on different models of machines and how to use them. There's nothing better than the taste of homemade bread -- and no one brings it to you better than Betty Crocker.

Betty Crocker's Best Bread Machine Cookbook, Jul 25, 2023
This is the best bread machine cookbook I've owned, and I have a lot of them. First of all the book it's self is easy to use because it lies flat. It has a great selection of recipes. I was looking for a good cinnamon, raisin bread and this is exellent. I have only made a few of the recipes but all of them are great so far. If your only going to own one book or this will be your first, I'd say this is the one to get.

Easy to follow recipes, Jul 1, 2023
I like the book and the recipes, which are easy to follow. There are a wide variety of really good recipes. The breads I've made so far have turned out well and it's true that they are designed for bread machines; just follow the recipe and your bread will turn out fine. I haven't found any to be "gourmet," but I guess there are other cookbooks for that. (Hint for those new to making bread: don't use water straight from your tap. It will ruin the yeast.)

Bread Machine Convert, Mar 23, 2023
My Mom taught all five of her children to make bread by hand. Until recently I viewed bread machines as a cop out to bread making. A friend brought a savory loaf she had made in her bread machine and it was so delicious and light and moist, I was impressed. My mother-in-law had a bread machine she had never used, so she let me have it, but it didn't have the recipe book anymore. I ordered this book from Amazon and from the first recipe I tried I became hooked on bread machine baking. My Dad has requested a loaf of Raisin Cinnamon bread for his birthday.

awesome book, Mar 3, 2023
I have looked at bread cookbooks over the last 2 years and finally found one that I really liked. It has alot of hints to make the bread come out of the bread machine better which, by the way, has worked. There is alot of variety of recipes to try. It is written clearly, in a concise manner, and overall is the best bread machine cookbook that I have found.
