Ricotta Bread for Bread Machines (1 Pound Loaf)

READY IN: 3hrs 5mins
Recipe by HeatherFeather

A favorite I have been making for years. This isn't a very tall loaf and yes - the amount of flour is correct. NOTE: (These days, most bread machines have much bigger pans, so if you have a larger capacity machine, you may instead wish to only mix the dough in the machine,let it rise, then bake the bread itself in a loaf pan (at 350 F for perhaps 30 minutes is a guess). This can still be baked in a larger capacity machine, it will just have an odd shape.

Needed to use up some ricotta and came across this recipe. It was a dense bread, but we enjoyed it. I did add the extra 3 tbs of flour - because I was leaving and wasn't sure if it was going to be sticky or not. Maybe that wasn't the best decision as far as it being heavy. I have a small bread machine, so I'm always on the lookout for 1lb recipes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients into a 1-pound capacity (or bigger) bread machine according to the directions in your manual.
  2. Select the basic bread cycle and light crust.
  3. After about 5 minutes, take a peek inside your machine to see if your dough is forming up a ball- if it is too wet, add up to 3 Tbsp additional flour, a spoonful at a time (or as needed based on the hunidity of the day), if too dry, add a little water.
