March is National Nutrition Month, and for many people, the best health includes following an eating plan catered to specific dietary needs. For some, this means eating gluten-free. Whether your gluten-free diet is a necessity or a general guideline, you may find baking bread at home to be a better option than the stale, crumbly options available on most grocery store shelves. And with a dedicated gluten-free bread machine, you can hope to avoid cross-contamination. Our gluten-free whole grain bread contains over 50% whole grains and is perfect for sandwiches, toast or bread pudding.

Pumpkin Wreath Bread from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

Thanksgiving is a great opportunity to show off your baking skills, and this pumpkin wreath bread is no exception. Golden dough in the shape of a wreath topped with coarse salt and pumpkin seeds makes a lovely centerpiece and delicious addition to the holiday meal.

No baking skills? No problem. The breadmaker does all the work. All you need to do is form the dough into a ring and use your kitchen shears to create the wreath shape.

Use a ruler if you want help guiding you where to cut. We placed ours about every 2 inches.

Sprinkle with generous amounts of sea salt. If you sprinkle from high up, the salt will spread more evenly than if you hold you your hand close to the wreath.

Breadmaker 101: The Basic Guide for Using a Bread Machine to Make Delicious Bread at Home - with a bonus recipe for White Wheat Bread! From Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach       

How does a breadmaker work? Can I make gluten-free bread in a breadmaker? Can I make dough in a breadmaker and cook it somewhere else? These are just a few of the many questions our experts receive regularly. This post will tell you what a breadmaker is, how it works and how to use it to make bread in just a few simple steps.

Breadmaker 101: The Basic Guide for Using a Bread Machine to Make Delicious Bread at Home - with a bonus recipe for White Wheat Bread! From Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

What is a Breadmaker?

Typically, making bread involves several steps and a lot of time – at least an hour for rising. A stand mixer is recommended, although you can, of course, make it by hand with a little more effort and patience. Alternatively, a breadmaker does all the work for you. A motor turns a paddle to mix and knead the dough just the right amount. A heating element provides the gentle warmth needed for rising and a higher temperature needed for baking.

You add the ingredients, and the breadmaker makes and bakes the bread in one handy appliance. Liquid ingredients are added first, then oils or fats, dry ingredients, and finally yeast (if called for). It mixes the ingredients, kneads the dough and lets it rise. Then it kneads the dough again, lets it rise for the second time and then bakes it to a beautifully soft bread with a crisp crust.

What Are the Steps for Making Bread?

Once ingredients are added to the breadmaker, what happens? First, the breadmaker combines the ingredients and kneads the dough with a paddle that connects to the bottom of the bread pan. Once the first kneading is complete, a heating element provides just enough warmth for the dough to rise without baking it. Depending on the type of loaf you’re making, the dough rises for anywhere from 5 to 40 minutes. Then, a second kneading takes place, as does an additional rise for most cycles. Lastly, the breadmaker bakes the bread to a light, medium, or dark crust depending on the selected setting.

Why Are There Different Breadmaker Cycles?

Many different types of bread can be made with a breadmaker. Breadmakers have a variety of pre-programmed cycles to accommodate everything from a soft and sweet cinnamon bread to a crusty loaf of french bread. Differences in cycles include the amount of time needed for kneading, rising, and baking. Breadmakers also have a dough setting that makes the dough but stops before baking it. This lets you bake it in a conventional oven or cook it on the grill (think grilled pizza). Quick breads, cakes and even jam can be made with a breadmaker.

What About Gluten-Free Bread?

Many people are choosing to maintain a gluten-free diet. Buying gluten-free bread can be expensive, and commercially-produced gluten-free breads may not suit your tastes. By experimenting at home, you can create a loaf that fits your tastes and dietary needs by using any of the gluten-free mixes on the market – or create your own recipe using gluten-free flours.

How Can I Bake Bread at Home?

You know the feeling when you walk into a bakery and smell the aroma of fresh baked bread? Now imagine getting the same inviting scent in your own kitchen in three easy steps. No baking experience is necessary to use a breadmaker, and most breads consist of just five main ingredients: flour, yeast, liquid, salt, and sweetener. Simply measure your ingredients and add them in the following order: liquids, dry ingredients, yeast. Select the settings for the type of bread you are making and press Start. That’s it. In as little as 1 hour, you can have a hot and delicious loaf of bread.
