This bread reminds me of Hawaiian Bread when I use a yellow cake mix and vanilla or almond extract. The possibilities are endless.......try chocolate, lemon, caramel, etc.
- 1 1⁄4 cups milk or 1 1⁄4 cups water
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup cake mix (any flavor)
- 2 1⁄2 cups bread flour
- 2 teaspoons yeast
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon extract (any flavor) (optional)
- Add ingredients according to manufacturers recommendations.
- Cycle should be on white or sweet.
- Setting should be on light.
This bread was very tasty, but I did have to add about 8 tbsp of flour to the mix in order to get the right consistency of dough in my bread machine. The crust was thick and very browned, but it was a very good, sweet tasting bread. However, if you don't like a chewy crust, this may not be the bread for you.
I've made this cake bread several times. It smells great baking, and is a treat for breakfast. (I always add 3 tbl. sugar to the listed ingredients) It seems to matter what brand cake mix you use. WhenI used a "name brand" the cake bread came out higher, than it did when I used Walmart's own brand of cake mix.
I will have to try this one again. My loaf sunk in the middle. I did notice the loaf was a bit watery but since it was a cake bread I assumed it was supposed to be that way. The texture of the bread was chewy. I think sugar should have been added to this as well. I set the loaf on light, but it came out with a thick crust for some reason. I will try to take it out earlier this time. Will rate again once I make the next loaf and will post my adaptations, and so on if successfull.
