Cooking DIY Bread Making #01: French Bread!!!

I got a 80’s Oster’s One Pound Deluxe Bread and Dough Maker from a friend who doesnt use it any more.  Its a really cool kitchen appliance that brought a lot of joy to use, watch, and make bread from.  There are more modern bread makers on sale if you want make your own bread or wake up to the smell of fresh bread in the morning: Btw, my Youtube vlogs and reviews may also have associated affiliate links to products that may earn from qualifying purchases.

I didnt have a chance to do a unboxing video, however the 80’s Oster’s One Pound Deluxe Bread and Dough Maker was quite simple to use and my friend gave me a quick recipe book for bread making to get me started. There are other bread machine books online ( ), but the primary thing for me was to make French bread.

So to make 1 lb loaf of  French bread with a bread machine, you will need the following tools and ingredients:
0. Bread Machine: ( )
1. Oven mitt to take the bread pan out when complete.  ( )
2. Measuring Cup and spoon: a simple set will do  ( )
3. Water (3/4 cup ) : I used room temperature filtered tap water
4. All Purpose Flour (2 cups): 
5. Sugar (1 1/4 Table spoon):
6. Salt (1 teaspoon) : 
7. Active Dry Yeast (1-1/4 teaspoon) :

Turn on the bread machine. I added the ingredients in order: water, flour, sugar, salt, and lastly yeast.  On the bread machine, i set the bread to French, Medium crust, and no delayed start.  The bread machine told me it will take 4 hours and 30 minutes to complete. The press start to make it knead the dough and start the process.

You can add a delay so it can make the bread for you when you wake up the next day, rather than wait 4.5 hours. Since we got this 80s bread maker as a gift we wanted to supervise the baking to see if it functions correctly.

After about hour of kneading, the dough looks great an the texture of the rising bread was good.  We let the machine complete its process.

When it completed, we lifted the hot pan out of the bread maker with oven mitts. We released the loaf from the paddle buy turning the axle underneath about pan a 20 degrees clockwise and then back counter clock wise.  Then upside down the pan and the loaf falls out.

The side crust was crispy and  great. The center bread was meaty and soft. The bread had a slight salt taste to it which tasted great!.

Overall was it worth waiting 4.5 hours for fresh bread? Yes it was. It was great seeing the process and watching the  automated actions make perfect bread.
