All of our recipes were tested using all-purpose flour. Bread flour can also be used. Most of these recipes call for shaping bread into a loaf and baking in a loaf pan. However, bread can be shaped into any shape and baked in almost any pan, just adjust your baking time as needed.
Bread rises best in a moist, warm environment. For a perfect place to raise bread, place bread in a microwave oven or regular oven with a pan of steaming water. Do not turn oven on, but close the door.
All of the yeast bread recipes were made using the dough hooks on Speed 6. When yeast is dissolved in warm water, the water temperature should be 105° to 115°F. This is usually very warm tap water.
