Basic white bread baked in bread maker (Cornell Bread Master)

This is my latest kitchen toy.

Brand: Cornell
Product: Bread Maker
Model no.: CBM-PH30LB

This is a special gift from the hubby in conjunction with our triple happiness celebration - Happy Father's Day (hubby's first), Happy 2nd Anniversary (our wedding), and Happy Birthday (mine!). :D

Thanks hubby! You and your sweet surprises! :)

I'm so elated beyond words! And so, I baked my very first loaf of basic white bread in my life! :)

Weight: 900g
Type: Basic white bread
Crust: Medium brown


350ml water
2 tablespoon oil (I used virgin coconut oil)
1 & 1/4 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons sugar
520g bread flour*
1 teaspoon dry yeast

*Bread flour is not the same as all-purpose flour. It is higher in protein and gluten and is necessary to give your bread its fine grain.

I read up about how to mix the ingredients and here's an important one: With most machines, start with the liquids then move on to the dry ingredients. The very last ingredient to add is the yeast. [source]

Now, let the photos and their captions speak for themselves.

Freshly baked and ready to be sliced!

Smells sooooo goooood!

And there you are! Meet the insides of my first loaf of white bread. :P

I need to buy a good bread knife. I have problem slicing it into nice slices with a normal kitchen knife.

The hubby's idea: Let's make a soup bowl...

...and fill it with cream of chicken soup!

By the way, our 10-month old baby loves bread pieces. He can hold a piece of bread with his cute little fingers and eat it slowly. So cute!


  1. Hi Joyce!

    I also had the same problem with slicing the first two times when I baked a bread loaf.

    Finally bought myself a bread knife and bread slicing had never been easier. But bread knife is expensive! =D

  2. Hi Joyce, do you remove the kneading blades before baking start? The blades stuck inside the bread after baked

    1. Hi Celia,

      I don't remove the kneading blades before baking starts. But before I pour in ingredients, I will grease the blades generously with oil. Usually, the bread can be loosen easily without getting stuck. If the blades do get stuck, I will pry them out gently to avoid tearing the bread apart. Lol.

  3. Hi Joyce
    Just enquiry can this cornell Bread Maker bake a small loaf about 300gm flour ?
    I decide to get one new , now i'm using kenwood BM250.

    1. Hi Felicia,

      I don't think Cornell can bake loaves as small as 300gm. The smallest size is 2lb (about 900gm) , biggest 3lb (about 1.4kg).


  4. I am new in using bread maker. why my bread hard
    can let me know program 1-11 what is to use

  5. The quality of the bread from a bread machine versus hand-made bread is generally the same. The process is different and takes longer by hand but there is barely a noticeable difference in the taste. bread machine recipes
