Flour for the Bread Machine — 12 Comments

  1. That’s a good point. However the Man of the House is not a fan of whole wheat. We buy small bags of wheat flour at the grocery store and it lasts us a long, long time.

    • Aaron – Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I was waiting for our next Costco run before replying. We went on Monday (January 4th) and we got a 50 pound bag of ConAgra bread flour. We paid $14.59 so that’s 29 cents a pound.

  2. I love my Zmachine too! I have a recipe that calls for multigrain flour. Since I haven’t been able to find a bag of this type, I’m assuming I have to mix it myself. Have you tried this? If so, what flours work best and in what quantity?

  3. Found a recipe for Ezekiel Bread for the bread machine:

    1 cup of Water
    1/4 cup Red Kidney beans -(cooked and drained)
    1/4 cup Lentils – (cooked and drained)
    1 1/2 Tbs. of Olive Oil
    1 1/2 Tbs. of Honey
    3/4 teaspoon of Salt
    2 cups of Bread Flour
    1/2 cup Barley Flour
    1/2 cup Millet Flour
    2 tbs. Vital Gluten
    1 1/2 teaspoons Yeast

    I haven’t tried it yet (just found it on line). Will give it a go and post back…:-)

    The price of Ezekiel bread is getting out of hand….yikes!

  4. I know these are old posts but just had to add my 2 cents! Many restaurants discard their 5 gal buckets from things like sour cream, pickles, etc. and they will give them to you free of charge! Also, just as an aside, if you add some bay leaves to the flour {I add them to all flours & grains, bulk products} it will keep any weavels from hatching out! I also use canning jars for storing stuff. I have had brown sugars in canning jars {with the regulation 2 piece lids, NOT the plastic caps} for well over a year and they are just as soft as new.
