Bread Machine Dough?

I want to try bread on my Egg but have no experience baking. Has anyone used a bread machine to make the dough and then baked it in the Egg?

  • The Egg is a natural for baking bread.  It's like Old World style.  I use several different configurations of bricks and other homemade items depending on what type of bread I make.  My mother baked her own bread each week for her entire life.  We were lucky children.  She always made pizza when she made bread.

    @SamFerrise that looks great, at what temperature are you baking the bread? Any particular reason for the inverted perforated pan you are using, I had planned to use the pizza stone?

  • That particular loaf was a very rustic bread and needed good air flow to ensure even cooking.  The plate setter is below, leg up temp was about 400.  In some of my breads I add about 2 Tbs cornmeal for added texture.  This is the bread I grew up on.  It still works and makes the best sandwiches.
