Bread Machine Tips

Bread Machine Hazlenut-Amaretto Loaf

1 Pound Loaf:

2 cup bread flour
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup toasted chopped hazelnuts
1 egg
2 tblsp sugar
2 tblsp margarine or butter
4 tsp amaretto or hazelnut liqueur
3/4 tsp active dry yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1 recipe amaretto glaze
1 toasted chopped hazlenuts or
1 almonds (optional)

Amaretto Glaze:

1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 tblsp amaretto or hazelnut liqueur or 1 tblsp almond extract
1 to 2 tablespoons milk if needed

Bread Directions: Add flour, milk, the nuts, egg, sugar, margarine or butter, liqueur, yeast, and salt to the bread machine according to the manufacturer's directions. Bake and cool as directed. When bread is cool, drizzle with Amaretto Glaze.

Amaretto Glaze: In a small mixing bowl combine sugar, amaretto or hazelnut liqueur *OR* almond extract. If needed, add 1 to 2 teaspoons milk to make of drizzling consistency.

Bread Machine Basics: These helpful tips apply to all types of bread machines: Bread flour, which is high in protein, works best for breads made in a bread machine. You can use other grains or flours with the bread flour but not in place of all of it. Some recipes also call for a small amount of gluten flour. This helps breads, especially those made with low-gluten flours (such as whole wheat flour), hold together.

Add ingredients to the bread machine in the order specified by the directions in the owner's manual.

To use powdered milk instead of fresh, add 1/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder for each 1 cup of water and add it with the flour. Always use powdered milk when using the timer on your machine.

5/8 cup water; tepid
1 1/2 tablespoon oil; corn or - other bland oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 1/2 tablespoon sugar
3 cup bread flour
2 1/4 teaspoon yeast; rapid-rise

Add to machine in the manufacturers prefered order Select dough mode. Remove when first rise is finished and punch down on a floured surface (dough is slightly sticky and very puffy). After resting for a few minutes, divide into thirds, roll into ropes and braid. Let rise until almost doubled in a warm place, about 45 minutes. I braid the loaf and place on a slightly oiled cookie baking sheet to rise. Bake in a pre-heated 350° F oven for 25 minutes (approx). You can give it an egg wash, but I find the loaves get nicely brown without it.
