Breadmaker advice please

Hi there,

I have searched the forum but can't seem to find an answer to this so any advice would be appreciated:

I have just had my new Panasonic breadmaker delivered and have been looking to start with a basic wholemeal recipe. To make it even more OMS friendly I would like to substitute the sugar for honey and omit the butter. I know I can use EVOO as a butter substitute but can I just leave it out altogether? Do I need to put more water in instead? Here is the recipe:

500g strong wholemeal flour
1 1/2 tsp sugar
25g butter
1 1/4 tsp salt
370 ml water
1tsp yeast

I am excited about firing up the beast as I am sick of fat free pitta and chapatis all the time and miss proper bread. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Matt

Hi Matt,

I've been making bread without oil just a bit more water so the dough is wet enough to make nice bread.

I've also been buying wrights bread mixes which a far as I can see contain no oil or dodgy ingredients.

Some people say to avoid bread mixes but this one has nothing dodgy that I can see and only requires water and kneading (it's a multigrain loaf) and it's really delicious.

I don't know whether you are in the uk but if you are it's available in most supermarkets

Hope this helps

Lynne

There is a member who makes an oil free bread machine bread I think there might be a recipe on here, I can't recall their name

I just leave out the butter/oil, and do add a little extra water. I don't notice it - nor does the rest of my family. Good luck with it!

A TBSP of EVOO in this recipe will substitute for the butter.

Agave nectar is even better than honey due to its low GI profile.

Looking forward to hearing how the bread turn out :)

Hi, can someone advise me what sort of yeast to use in a breadmaker, and how it should be used? The manual that came with the machine recommends active yeast for bread makers but the ones I've found all have canola oil in them?

I use Olive Oil in all my bread, and the yeast I use is Fleischmann's ActiveDry yeast, I'm in the USA, I'm not sure what's available in NZ.

I make my bread with a counter mixer, proofing box, and an ancient electric oven.

I just buy the own-brand dried yeast from the supermarket. It doesn't contain any oil at all.

What I want to do soon is create my own yeast. Doesn't sound too hard:
