Bread, Muffins, Donuts

I LOVE homemade bread - especially when it is still warm !!  It is SOOOO good.  

For the bread machine recipes, you may have to adjust the liquid or flour a little depending on your bread machine.  Most of the bread machine recipes are modified versions of recipes I found on the web years ago - I don't even remember where I found them all.  Some are modified recipes from the Biggest Book of Bread Machine Recipes cookbook.

My bread machine is the Sunbeam 5891 2-Pound Programmable Breadmaker.  

I like using the silicone bakeware for bread and muffins.  The bread comes out so easily and I don't need to grease the pans.  My favorites are:  
Casabella Silicone Bread Loaf Pan , Casabella Silicone Standard Muffin Pan, Casabella Silicone Large Muffin Pan, Casabella Jumbo Muffin Cups.

The Casabella Silicone Bread Loaf Pan is a little smaller than my 
SiliconeZone Bread Loaf Pan.

I've been experimenting with gluten free bread machine recipes.  I finally made a loaf that tasted good and wasn't sticky, but it didn't raise very high.  I am still going to post it since the flavor was good !!!!  I've read on the web that it is harder to get the gluten free bread to rise without using real eggs. 

Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature.  I usually put all the ingredients in the bread pan and then let the pan sit in the bread machine for about 1/2 hour before starting the bread machine.

The Daniel Fast muffins do NOT have any leavening agents in them (no yeast, no baking soda, no baking powder).
