Using Bread Machine Mixes without a Bread Machine

You can use your bread machine mixes to make great bread by hand with a stand-type mixer.  Make as you would your favorite recipe.  You can make one, two, or three loaves at a time.  Use a yeast packet for each loaf and the butter and water called for in the directions.  The dough consistency should be just perfect though if you prefer it a little different, sprinkle a little flour or water—not more than a tablespoon at a time—on the dough.  Knead the bread by hand or with your mixer and let it rise.  Form the loaves and let them rise again in large loaf pans.  Bake your bread in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes or until done.  You should have perfect bread without a machine.
