For anyone who enjoys the flavour and aroma of freshly baked bread, nothing beats the convenience of a bread machine. So it's not surprising that you'll find this exceptionally useful appliance in kitchens throughout Canada today. But a bread machine is, after all, just a machine. If you want the best results, you need the best recipes -- recipes that not only taste great, but are specifically designed to meet the exacting requirements of the technology. And that's just what you get with 300 Best Canadian Bread Machine Baking Recipes. Here you'll find a collection of great recipes, each thoroughly tested to ensure successful bread machine baking every time. And what a collection it is! Try traditional sourdough bread, spicy jalapeno cheese bread, flavourful (but low-fat) potato chive bread or, for something sweet, chocolate banana loaf. Also included are recipes that let you take advantage of a bread machine's ability to prepare dough for a wide variety of other treats, including middle Eastern flatbread, Montreal-style cheese bagels, focaccia with parmesan walnut topping, and giant pecan sticky buns. Many of the recipes can be made in either 1½- or 2-pound machines, and there are recipes for other foods that can be made in a bread machine, such as pasta, cakes, and cookies.
