Default Breadmaker recipes please!

Hi,

I have just got a Morphy-Richards compact breadmaker that produces 1 lb or 1.5 lb loaves and has a timer.

It works.

All the measurements in the accompanying booklet are in cups, tablespoons, teaspoons and pounds.
I, on the other hand, have no problem with SI or imperial units.

I'm in the UK so ingredients not generally available here are effectively impossible for me (I'm disabled as well as diabetic).
We don't have any specialist stores, Sainsbury's and Waitrose are effectively *it*.
I might be able to find other ingredients in Guildford when I go there - i.e. not often.

So far I've not gone beyond the manufacturers recipes, familiarising myself with the beast.

Can anyone here either
a) point me towards a good site for bread recipes
or
b) share a recipe or two with us here?
b) is obviously better!

I personally prefer wholemeal bread - but I'll consider *any* recipe.
Obviously lower carbohydrate would be better

I have made bread before my diabetes was diagnosed, successfully too, but I've had a stroke since.
My sense of humour wasn't disabled - but the proper kneading, etc, are beyond me for a while (even with dough hooks).

Take care,
Phil.

www.flourbin.co.uk have a stunning range of flours.
www.lakelandlimited.co.uk do good bread machine mixes (although sadly not
low-carb ones), plus American-size cups so you can do American recipes.
Holland and Barrett do a good whey protein; their soy protein is a
reasonable sub, and is very cheap.

Here's a low-carb recipe I use occasionally, but I usually sub spelt flour
for the soy. It rises well, and the loaf is great for sandwiches.

If you don't mind the soy flour, here's the list of ingredient to add to the
bread machine:

3/4 cup lukewarm water
1 tablespoon butter or oil
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup vital wheat gluten
1/2 cup soy flour
1/2 cup oat flour
1 teaspoon sugar (needed for the yeast)
2 teaspoons or 1 package rapid rise yeast

White cycle, regular crust, small loaf (but use the extender, if you have
one, because this really rises well)

This looks wonderful. I'll dig out the bread machine and give it a try.


Thanks for sharing.
