What property of the finished bread are you unhappy with? (crumbly, taste, crust or whatever) It could be how the machine is processing it rather than the recipe.
Annie (Jersey), Molly (AIS) and Bella (her Jersey X heifer) 15 Charolais cows, 3 Limousin cows, Barry the Angus bull, 1 Jersey steer (Buddy), 6 dorper ewes and a ram and two lambs, 15 chooks, a rooster, two dogd and a cat. Fruit, veg and as much cow poop as I want. Heaven!

Here's what I make in a bread machine every other day. I grind the flour from hard red or white berries.
1 1/2 Tablespoon of butter, lard or (my favorite) coconut 2 cups fine ground hard red wheat (or 1 each hard red, hard white) 3 tablespoons brown sugar 2 tablespoons gluten 2 tablespoons ground flax 1 tsp salt 1 tsp yeast 1 cup water You can omit the flax and gluten, but remove a tablespoon of water from the measuring cup. I think it makes the texture better for sandwiches, though. If you put the loaf in the frig overnight, it's a lot easier to slice thin for sandwiches.
Last Edit: Jul 28, 2013 14:14:26 GMT -5 by Debbie Lincoln: forgot to include the oil!!! GAAACK
3 Cows: Sophie - HoJo, Elvira - Abbey’s 1/2 Angus, Totsy, 7/8 Red Angus, heifers Cissy, Ocho and Ellie Mae, assorted calves. RIP Abbey. Trudy - GSD, 2 cats, Koi pond, flock of colorful opinionated chickens, a small garden, 2 grown kids, 3 grandchildren, and us, 2 retired happy people trying unsuccessfully to slow down.
I don't find bread machine cooked bread to work well. I can knead in it, but it is much nicer if I bake it in the oven . . which makes me wonder why I have a bread machine *G*
Heehee...same here...although I do let it get it's first rise in the machine, too.
My recipe is fairly easy and I get really consistent loaves, again better if baked in the oven, but decent in the bread machine. In the bread machine I sometimes have crust issues, but the flavor and texture are usually good. I apologize in advance for my "exact" measurements...
- 2 cup glass Pyrex measure full to top with hard red winter wheat berries (I think it works out to 3 1/2-4 cups once ground)
-1/3 cup oil -1/3 cup honey -1 1/3 cups water -1 1/2 tsp salt -2 1/2 tsp yeast
My mom has made this same recipe for years, but I think she uses 3 cups of flour and butter instead of oil. Her loaves have issues sometimes though, but she also lives in NM and I'm in south TX so it could be an altitude issue?

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
