So, we decided to cultivate a list of our four favorite West Bend bread maker recipes. These recipes are super easy and great for all kinds of bread bakers.

Old Fashioned White Bread

Old Fashioned White Bread

This recipe makes 1 and a half pound loaf of bread.

  • 3 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons of yeast
  • 3 tablespoons of softened butter at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup of canola oil
  • 1 cup of lukewarm water
  1. 1
    First, add the butter, canola oil, and water to the bread machine.
  2. 2
    Next, add the flour, sugar, and sea salt. Create a little bowl in the flour and fill that bowl with the yeast. This keeps it out of direct contact from the water so it doesn’t get activated right away.
  3. 3
    Select your bread machine’s “White Bread” setting. Make sure to check in on the bread dough after a few minutes of mixing. If it’s too sticky, add a dash of flour until it’s the right consistency. If it’s too dry, add a teaspoon of water at a time until it’s the right consistency.
  4. 4
    Once your bread is done baking, let it cool for at least an hour before serving.

    While your bread is working through the bread-making process in your bread machine, break the egg into a small mixing bowl. Beat the egg with a whisk. Add the softened butter. Mix until it’s combined thoroughly. Set the mixture aside.
  5. 5

Dill Bread Recipe

Dill Bread

This recipe makes a 1 and a half pound loaf of bread.

  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups of fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons of yeast
  • 2 tablespoons of softened butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup of low-fat cottage cheese at room temperature
  • 1 cup of lukewarm water
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons of softened butter
  1. 1
    First, add room temperature butter, cottage cheese, and water to your bread machine.
  2. 2
    Next, add flour, dill, onion, and sea salt. Create a little bowl in your flour and fill it with the yeast.

    Select your bread machine’s “White Bread” setting. Don’t use a delayed timer on this recipe since cottage cheese can go bad from sitting out too long. Keep this in mind when using any dairy products in your bread. Also, make sure to check in on your bread dough after a few minutes. If it’s too sticky, add a dash of flour until it’s the right consistency. If it’s too dry, add a teaspoon of water at a time until it’s the right consistency.
  4. 4
    While your bread is baking, break the egg into a small bowl. Whisk the egg. Add the softened butter and mix until thoroughly combined. Set it off to the side.
  5. 5
    Once the bread is done baking, brush the top of your loaf of bread with the egg mixture. Let it cool for an hour before serving.

  • 2 teaspoons of yeast
