Homemade {Bread Machine} Bread

When I was pregnant with Little V, all I wanted to do was bake. I guess you could say that was my nesting drug of choice! The summer that I became pregnant, I purchased a bread machine at a local thrift store and used it like crazy making different kids of doughs, breads and baked goods. I really enjoyed it! Since  having Little V in December, I guess you could say that my bread machine went into “hibernation” and all of my “Susie Homemaker desires” went out the window.

So…..Fast forward to 7 months later (which would totally be now..) and I am back in the bread making groove! The bread machine is out of hibernation and I want to show the world the recipe I use for this delicious homemade bread machine bread that I love to make!

So, if you have a bread machine, check out the recipe below to make your very own loaf of white bread. You can use this for a basic sandwich bread, a french toast breakfast– or whatever your little heart desires. I have been known to just slather a warm, fresh-out-of-the-bread-machine piece with some real butter and take a big ole bite. YUM!

Nerdy Brains
  • 5 Quarts of plain Popcorn that is already popped and cooled in a large mixing bowl.
  • ¾ Cup Corn Syrup
  • 1 Cup Marshmallows
  • ⅝ Cup Confectioners Sugar
  • ½ Lb Butter or Margarine.
  • 6 Boxes of Fun-Sized Nerds Candy

  1. With your large bowl of popcorn set aside, heat all ingredients, EXCEPT the Nerds candy, over medium heat in a saucepan.
  2. Let everything melt and come to a boil.
  3. Once it's at a rolling boil, remove from heat and pour over popcorn very carefully.
  4. With a wooden or plastic spoon, carefully stir and coat entire bowl of popcorn.
  5. Let the popcorn cool just a bit and add the Nerds candy to the bowl, incorporating the candy throughout.
  6. Let the popcorn cool just a bit more and form into brain-like shapes (or balls-- that's really how they turn out.:))
  7. To store, wrap individually with plastic wrap and throw into a Ziploc baggy. Give as gifts-- people will love them!

Once last thing– My mom gave me this AWESOME bread keeper that also helps you to slice the perfect sandwich-size piece. Wanna see what this cool contraption can do? Well, then continue scrolling down!

First, I stuck the loaf into this plastic contraption that has slats to help guide my bread knife evenly and straight down to cut out a straight, uniform piece.

See how it cut it into a perfect 1″ piece? Just right size for making sandwiches. Wahoo!

When I am ready to store my bread, I just take these two clear plastic pieces and enclose it around the bread and plastic bread cutter thing. I am really not sure where my mom got this cool contraption, but I bet you Bed Bath and Beyond or Walmart has a similar product. Walmart has pretty much everything, so you can’t go wrong checking with them.

I of course would love to show you more bread machine recipes (yes, you can make more than just bread!), so if you have enjoyed this post and are craving for more, leave me a comment and I’ll be sure to post some more yummy bread machine recipes for you to try too!

  1. I have a similar bread recipe! Mine makes “Amish bread” and it tastes pretty darn close!

    It’s like having a slice of home. Don’t you miss the Amish baked goods?! I sure do.
