Default bread recipe to bread maker

I have a bread recipe for conventional oven. I would like to make it in
my bread machine. Will any bread recipe work as well in a bread
machine? I have the panasonic SD YD250 which has a yeast dispenser.
Thanks
Chris

Most conventional recipes are written for two loaves, as long as you scale
the recipe to the size appropriate for your bread maker it should be ok.
Keep in mind that some machines are sensitive to the amount of liquid. After
your machine has mixed the ingredients and after a few minutes of kneading,
open the cover and check the dough ball, be prepared to add a teaspoon or
two of either liquid or flour in order to obtain a nice smooth ball of
dough.

If you can adjust the size of the recipe so that it is the correct
quantity for your machine, and if you can adjust the amount of yeast
and sugar and salt so that they, in combination, are the correct
amount for the time that the machine permits for the bread to rise,
the simple answer is YES.

In most instances you should be able to find a bread machine version
of the recipe already extant, somewhere on the web, incidentally.

For a 1 pound machine, the TOTAL weight of all of the ingredients
should be in the 425-475 gram range, for a 1.5 pound machine, about
650-700 grams and for a 2 pound machine somewhere around 875-925
grams. This includes the liquids and the solids. The tricky part is
getting the dough to rise the correct amount for the size and timing
of the machine's mechanism and heating cycles so that you get a good
loaf.

You may need to experiment a bit, with the various types of bread the
machine will produce and the different timing that the regular and
dark crust settings involve, to find the correct combination of timing
and heating and baking that works with your dough.

It is rare that you need more than about 4-5 grams of yeast,
incidentally, which is less than the content of one packet of yeast.
Two packets of yeast are usually enough for three sessions in bread
machines. The balance of the other ingredients that impact the amount
of rise is often not as crucial, but it can be, so you will end up
playing.

See if you can find a proven bread machine recipe for that same sort
of bread - its a much better way of starting out.

Also, feel free to post the recipe here, and it is often possible that
one or more of us will be able to give you a very good version for use
in a bread maker, based on past experience.

Thanks all.
I'll post recipe sometime.
It's rather long and will take a while to type.
