Golden Honey Pan Rolls
A cousin in North Carolina gave me the recipe for these delicious honey-glazed rolls. Using my bread machine to make the dough saves me about 2 hours compared to the traditional method. The rich buttery taste of these rolls is so popular with family and friends that I usually make two batches so I have enough! —Sara Wing, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Big pizza flavor comes through in these rolls, thanks to the peppers, mushrooms, olives and pepperoni. This recipe makes two pans of rolls, and you can make the dough in a bread machine. —Barb Downie, Peterborough, Ontario

Banana Wheat Bread
A subtle banana flavor comes through in this moist whole wheat loaf. Flecked with poppy seeds, the sweet slices are wonderful warm or toasted and spread with butter. —Louise Myers, Pomeroy, Ohio
Braided Onion-Potato Loaf
Ever wonder why a bread recipe includes mashed potatoes? The potato’s starchy quality absorbs liquid during the kneading stage, and it holds onto that liquid during baking. The bread finishes with a crisp, brown exterior crust and a flavorful, moist interior that helps the bread keep longer. —Joan Ranzini, Waynesboro, Virginia
Onion French Bread Loaves
Since I love variety in my cooking, I tried adding dried minced onion to my usual recipe in attempts to copy a bread I had tasted, creating these two tasty loaves. Using the bread machine on the dough setting is a great timesaver. —Ruth Fueller, Barmstedt, Germany
Chipotle Focaccia with Garlic-Onion Topping
Chipotle peppers leave some people tongue-tied; others can’t get enough of the smoky heat. I came up with this recipe for chipotle, roasted garlic and caramelized onion focaccia. Some wanted it spicier—it’s only a medium heat pepper—and some like it just the way it is. Add more if you crave the fire. —Frances “Kay” Bouma, Trail, British Columbia
Frosted Cinnamon Rolls
These pretty cinnamon rolls are absolutely marvelous and taste just like the ones sold at the mall. Topped with a sweet cream cheese frosting, they are best served warm with coffee. Or reheat leftover rolls in the microwave and enjoy any time of day. —Velma Horton, LaGrange, California
Hawaiian Dinner Rolls
Pineapple and coconut give a subtle sweetness to these golden homemade rolls. If there are any leftovers, they’re great for sandwiches. —Kathy Kurtz, Glendora, California

Herbed Onion Bagels
I create my delightful bagels by adapting several other recipes. I enjoy them spread with cream cheese or onion and chive cream cheese. —Pam Kaiser, Mansfield, Missouri
Soft Oatmeal Bread
My husband loves to make this bread. With its mild oat taste and soft texture, it’s sure to be a hit with the whole family. Slices also are delicious toasted for breakfast. —Nancy Montgomery, Plainwell, Michigan
Flavorful Herb Bread

Garlic Parmesan Bread
This hearty aromatic bread has just a hint of honey and garlic. It’s one of my favorite breads. It goes with anything from bologna sandwiches to spaghetti. —Jami Blunt, Hardy, Arkansas
Rosemary-Garlic Focaccia Bread
This bread smells wonderful when it’s baking in the oven. I make it mostly during the summer when rosemary is abundant in the garden, but also around the holidays when rosemary plants are available in the stores. —Tammy Bollman, Minatare, Nebraska

Whether you like bread that’s sweet or savory, it just tastes better when it’s freshly made.
This list contains some comfort food favorites – whole wheat, banana bread, and cinnamon rolls.
It also has a few less well-known but just as delicious recipes, including milk and honey bread, peanut butter bread, and chocolate chip brioche.
In other words, you’ll probably find a few old favorites here, and hopefully, you’ll find some new ones, as well.
It may not be the most unique bread on the list, but it is one of the most practical.
The ingredients are simple – milk, butter, flour, sugar, salt, and bread machine yeast.
It takes nearly 3 hours to make, but its soft, fluffy, and moist texture and rich, buttery flavor far exceed anything you can buy off the shelf.
Whole Wheat Bread
I know it’s not everyone’s favorite, but I love whole wheat bread. It has the soft, fluffy texture of white bread, but the taste is bolder and more earthy.
I love to cut thick slices and eat them with tomato or broccoli cheddar soup in the colder months of the year.
Bread Machine Pound Cake
If you enjoy the sweet sponginess of pound cake, you’ll love this recipe. It’s so easy to make!
Simply add the ingredients into your bread machine, pick your preferred crust, and select the “cake” setting.
You’ll enjoy a yummy pound cake in no time.
I like to top mine with whipped cream and sweetened strawberries. Yum.
Bread Machine Chocolate Cake
Bread machines aren’t just for bread anymore.
If you’ve never used your machine to make cake, you should start with this incredible vegan chocolate cake recipe.
You can also make it in the oven, but the bread maker gives it a fluffier, more airy consistency that I just adore.
If you don’t strictly adhere to a vegan diet, check out the included recipe for chocolate ganache frosting.
It’s decadent, but it tastes so good, you won’t feel guilty.
Bread Machine Multigrain Bread
If you enjoy more flavorful bread, give this multigrain bread recipe a try.
You’ll make it with various grains, which gives it a unique, wonderful taste, and it’s full of fiber, which is always great.
It makes excellent toast and will add its own individual flavor to any sandwiches you make.
Bread Machine Milk and Honey Bread
Containing a cup of milk, three tablespoons of honey, and three tablespoons of melted butter, this bread has a delightfully sweet flavor that makes it a fast favorite of most people who try it.
You can also adjust the settings on your bread machine to make sweet, buttery dinner rolls using the same recipe.
Bonus: It smells phenomenal while cooking.
Lemon Cake Bread
Whether you cook it entirely in your bread machine or start it there and finish it in the oven, lemon cake bread is zesty, sweet, and dense enough to fill you up quickly.
You’ll also enjoy the lovely golden brown color and the crispy edges.
Bread Machine Banana Bread
Since the first time I had it standing in my grandmother’s kitchen, banana bread has been one of my favorite homemade breads.
Without a bread machine, though, it takes a bit of work.
The bread machine simplifies the whole process.
All you’ll have to do is beat the eggs, melt the butter, and smoosh the bananas. The bread machine does the rest.
If you want to make it extra sweet, add some chocolate chips after the first mixing cycle.
Bread Machine Sweet Potato Bread
Eating this bread is like eating sweet potato casserole in bread form. It’s delicious.
I add a little more cinnamon than the recipe requires, but I like a strong cinnamon flavor.
The bread’s texture is unique; it’s not like typical bread, but it’s hard to describe. Suffice it to say, it’s perfect.
You can also use the recipe to make dinner rolls instead of a loaf.
Bread Machine Garlic Bread
If you think the smell of baking bread is wonderful, wait until you add four cloves of garlic to it.
Your mouth will water and your tummy will growl because this bread smells terrific.
Make this recipe once, and you’ll never want frozen Texas toast again.
It goes great with spaghetti, lasagna, and all your other Italian favorites.
I never considered making pretzel bites in my bread machine until I found this recipe. Now they’re a regular appetizer in my house.
Their salty, buttery flavor tastes just like the pretzels you’d buy from a mall stand, and they’re even better when dipped in melted cheese.
Bread Machine Cornbread
If you like your cornbread slightly sweet, supremely buttery, and more soft than crumbly, don’t pass up this cornbread recipe.
Also known as “northern cornbread,” this cornbread works well as a breakfast bread, or you can serve it as an after-dinner dessert.
You may think I stuck this on the wrong list, but no, this recipe for raspberry jam is right where it’s supposed to be.
It’s a little-known fact, but many bread machines have a jam setting!
If your bread machine does, you can make the tastiest, sweetest raspberry jam using only four ingredients.
Simply add your mashed raspberries, sugar, lemon juice, and pectin to your bread machine.
Choose the “jam” setting, and let it cook for about 80 minutes.
Then you’ll just pour it into jars and seal them. It’s the easiest, most convenient way to make jam.
Bread Machine Chocolate Chip Bread
Chocolate chip bread is like chocolate chip cookies turned up to 11! It’s soft and yummy, and it makes a nice addition to any breakfast or brunch spread.
It’s also the perfect bread for sweet sandwiches like PB&Js.
You can make high-quality pizza dough with ease using your bread machine and flour, sugar, yeast, butter, salt, and water.
The bread machine makes a crust that’s fluffy and soft, but you can press and mold it into the shape you want once it’s done.
If you want it a little crispier, coat it in olive oil before baking it with the toppings.
Peanut Butter Bread
Peanut butter bread is the ideal option if you’re looking for a warm, sweet treat.
With or without the added peanut butter glaze, it tastes splendid any time of day.
You can serve it by itself, toasted, drizzled in the sweet, sticky glaze, or covered with cream cheese, jam, or jelly.
Bread Machine Calzone
This dough is herby and features the bold flavor of Italian seasoning. You’ll use your bread machine to make the dough.
Once it’s done, you can fill it with the cheese, sausage, and any other yummy calzone fillings you like.
Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love cinnamon rolls, but I know plenty of people who never make them because they can be a pain.
However, if you have a bread machine, much less work is involved because the machine does all the hard work for you.
All you’ll have to do is roll them, glaze them, and bake them a final time.
If you love bagels, you should invest in a bread machine just for them.
Bread machine bagels are so much softer and chewier than the ones you buy from the store.
Plus, you can add all of your favorite toppings to make them just the way you like them.
Bread Machine Monkey Bread
This isn’t the monkey bread you’re probably used to eating. That sweet, sticky mess is delicious, and I love it.
However, this monkey bread is just as good.
It’s pure buttery deliciousness, and it’s unbelievably tasty. Imagine the softest, warmest, most buttery dinner roll you’ve ever eaten.
This monkey bread is better.
You can easily adjust this recipe to make the traditional cinnamon and sugar variety, but I urge you to try it as-is. You won’t be disappointed.
Cinnamon Raisin Bread
Whether you eat this plain, slathered in butter, toasted, or made into French toast, it’s a yummy treat you won’t soon forget.
It’s also light and airy, so it won’t fill you up and make you feel bloated like many breads do.
It’s one of my favorite homemade breads to eat for breakfast.
Bread Machine Dinner Rolls
These yeasty, buttery rolls are ones I love to dip in mashed potatoes and gravy. However, they’re pretty versatile.
You can also use them as hamburger or slider buns.
Best of all, they require only the most basic of ingredients, and you can experience that wonderful homemade flavor without all the problematic kneading and mixing.
Bread Machine Breadsticks
Another favorite use I have for my breadmaker is making these delicious, almost-just-like-Olive-Garden breadsticks.
Their texture is exquisite, and they have a strong garlicky flavor that makes you not want to stop eating them.
If you’ve ever had Cole’s frozen breadsticks, that’s what they remind me of; only these are a little chewier.
This warm, buttery bread puts blueberry muffins to shame! (And I love blueberry muffins, so that should tell you how good this is.)
As the bread bakes, the blueberries get soft and melty, infusing the whole loaf of bread with the berries’ fresh, mildly sweet flavor.
In terms of fruity bread, this one is easily one of my favorites.
Bread Machine Pumpkin Bread
This bread is dense, cinnamony, slightly crumbly, and has the most lovely orange color. It’s so easy to make, too.
Prep time takes less than 10 minutes, and the bread cooks in less than 2 hours.
I like to throw some chopped walnuts into mine, but that’s entirely optional. It’s pretty tasty without them.
Chocolate Chip Brioche
Brioche rolls are great on their own. Once you stuff them full of chocolate chips, though, they’re superb.
The sugary sweetness of the bread perfectly complements the richness of the chocolate, and the sparkling sugar on top adds an extra layer of beauty and tastiness.
Don’t be surprised if these become a new brunch staple.
Rosemary Garlic Focaccia Bread
Rosemary, garlic powder, garlic cloves, oregano, parsley, and parmesan: If that’s not a recipe for perfection, then I’m not sure what is.
This bread smells fantastic, and it tastes even better. Serve it with soups, salads, or pasta. It goes well with practically anything.
Herb Bread Machine Rolls
These rolls are herby, earthy, and garlicky, and your whole house will smell amazing when you cook them.
They take a little bit of time to make – over 3 hours – so they aren’t rolls you want to make for everyday dinners.
However, if you’re cooking for a special occasion, these are a must-have.
These rolls, too, take quite some time to fix (over 4 hours), but as the recipe truthfully claims, they are “the quintessential dinner roll.”
I usually save these for holiday feasts, and I never get to bring any home.
If you’re looking for a dinner roll that everyone around the table will love, Amish potato rolls are the best bet you have of finding it.
Garlic Cheese Pull-Apart Rolls
This gooey, cheesy bread is like monkey bread; only it’s made with garlic, rosemary, and plenty of cheese.
Call it the savory cousin to monkey bread, and it’s every bit as good as the sweet version we all know and love.
A bread maker is a very versatile small kitchen appliance and a very useful one especially if you love baking bread. Once you put the wet and dry ingredients in the bread machine pan, the bread maker does all the job from mixing, kneading, rising, and finally baking the bread.
Today’s bread makers are not limited to bread making alone but can also make desserts like cake and sweet bread. It can also make jams at the push of a button. The best part of bread makers is that it does the heavy lifting of making the perfect dough for your favorite bread recipes.
This is an awesome collection of the best bread maker recipes including basic bread, sourdough bread, multigrain bread, herb bread, bread dough, jams, and cakes.

Since bread machines are my thing, I gathered all of my best bread maker recipes into one place to make it easy for you. No more scouring the web for mind-numbing hours looking for a recipe that may or may not be good.
Bread makers are fabulous kneading machines, so I only use the DOUGH cycle. After that, I take control, shaping the bread by hand and baking in my conventional oven.
That’s what makes these the best bread machine recipes.
No worries if you don’t have a bread machine or bread maker. Nearly all of my recipes have alternate directions for stand mixers or making bread by hand.
Why these will be your favorite recipes
When I bake bread, I want it to be worth the money, calories, and time! But that’s not all:
- It must taste fabulous, of course. Every recipe has been tested repeatedly.
- It must have a well-organized texture. (Stuffing the dough into a pan won’t do. Stuffing equals crumbs.)
- It must have a tender crust that is appropriately soft, tender, chewy, or crusty. Cardboard crusts are not worth the convenience of baking bread in a bread machine.
What am I doing wrong?
If you have made much bread in your machine, you might have noticed it’s often too dense, tough, short, flat on top, lopsided, crumbly, ugly, etc.
When the ingredients are dumped into a machine, mixed, and then baked right there in the machine, it’s not always the best. Most of the time, it’s not good at all.
Don’t blame your bread machine or bread maker. After all, it doesn’t have a brain. Instead, human intervention is required to make the very best bread machine bread.
“Bread machines don’t have a brain.”
That’s right. (I hope I haven’t burst your bread machine dream.) Great yeast bread cannot be made from scratch from start to finish with the touch of a “START” button.
Does it matter what kind of bread machine I have?
In my book, bread makers are the best kneading machine in town. So I use them to mix and knead the dough.
You need a machine with a DOUGH cycle because that’s all you’ll need with my recipes. Whether it’s old or new isn’t a big deal as long as the motor is strong.
You don’t need a preheat cycle, multiple rest periods interspersed throughout the DOUGH cycle, or multiple options for recipes made with different flours.
Are you thinking, “Why do I even need a bread maker?”
Don’t return your bread machine just yet.

Bread makers are worth the money. Although you can use a stand mixer with all my yeast bread recipes, stand mixers have no timers or way of controlling the heat while your bread rises.
With a stand mixer, you must recognize when the dough has been properly kneaded and provide the proper environment for the dough to rise. However, a stand mixer would be the preferred choice if you plan to make many large batches of dough (more than 4 cups per recipe).
So what’s the secret to making an incredible loaf of bread with a bread machine?
The instructions are in every one of my bread recipes. Look at this tutorial for making bread in a bread machine my way.
Meanwhile, here’s a birds-eye view:
First: Select a good recipe. I don’t even bother with the recipes in the manual. Choose one below, or use a favorite recipe-most yeast bread recipes can be converted to use in a bread machine with this method.
Second: No matter what the recipe says, choose the DOUGH cycle. When the DOUGH cycle completes, remove the dough from the bread machine to a lightly floured work surface in your kitchen.
Third: Shape the dough as directed. (Please don’t stuff the dough into a bread pan and stick it into the oven. The results won’t be pretty.)
Fourth: Let the dough rise again after shaping (important if you don’t want a dense loaf!).
Fifth: Bake the loaf in your preheated conventional oven. Don’t take it out until it’s perfectly baked throughout (use a quick-read thermometer if needed) and golden brown all over.
Yes, you can make good bread with a bread machine.
You’ll find advanced recipes like Ciabatta, Bread Machine Brioche, or Bread Machine Sourdough with No Commercial Yeast. There is truly something for everybody.
Can I recommend the free bread machine course? It’s the perfect place to start for anybody who wants to make bread worth sharing with a bread maker.

Looking for some advice for using your bread maker?
Are bread makers a waste of money?
It depends. If you want excellent bread every time with the touch of one button (from start to finish in a bread machine while you sleep), you will most likely be disappointed. But if you are willing to combine your brain with the touch of your fingers and the kneading power of a bread machine, you can make almost any bread recipe out there with a bread maker.
If you have questions or suggestions, email me privately for a quick answer: Paula at saladinajar.com. Hope to see you again soon!

Vegan white bread made in a bread machine is soft on the inside with a chewy crust. it is so delicious and easy to make. This dairy-free and egg-free white bread makes the perfect vegan sandwich bread too. With no kneading, no timing the rising and waiting, and no fussing, this vegan white bread recipe will soon become a family favorite.
You know – the mixing, the kneading, the rising, punching down, shaping rising again, and finally the baking! AND you have to time all of that just right!
Well, I’m sorry, but I don’t have the patience for all that. If I’m not baking super easy No-Knead Cinnamon Raisin bread or No-Knead Rosemary Garlic Bread, you had better believe that I’m pulling out the bread machine to make one of my no-fuss vegan bread machine recipes!
When I’m in a sweet bread mood I make Cranberry Orange Bread, Cinnamon Raisin Bread, or Wheat Bread with Molasses and Agave. But when my tastes run a little more to the savory side Olive Oil Herb Bread is my very favorite!
I think you are going to love this bread machine white bread!
This vegan white bread is nice and soft on the inside and a little chewy on the outside. The bread loaf is sturdy enough to slice and use for sandwich bread too. (Just make sure you cool it first!)
The bread flavor is neutral enough that you can serve it with savory ingredients like pistachio pesto or sweet ingredients like jam or pear butter. It makes a yummy grilled cheese sandwich and is perfect for a Sweet Heat Cream Cheese Panini with Jalapeno and Apricot Jam. YUM!
Makes a perfect vegan white sandwich bread – or the perfect vehicle for a slather of butter!
You can use the dough setting too!
When I make my white bread machine recipe I make it from start to finish in my bread machine. From mixing the ingredients, kneading, rising, “shaping”, rising again, and baking. Yum, freshly baked bread with no effort at all! But did you know that most bread making machines have a dough setting too? Using the dough setting you can remove the mixed, kneaded, and risen dough from the machine and shape it the way you’d like, put it into another pan, and bake it in the oven.
This great recipe actually works out perfectly for baked bread requiring premade bake-and-serve bread dough. You can either buy a frozen loaf of bake-and-serve dough OR make this vegan white bread all the way up to the second rising using the dough setting on your bread machine. I have a super festive red and green swirled vegan Christmas bread that this white bread is the perfect recipe for. Look for my cinnamon raisin swirl bread (coming soon) that works with this recipe too.
