Bread Loaf using Kenwood BM250

Recipe from Kymm's Kitchen.
Thanks to the generous sharing & tips from Rita Choo, Kymm Lee and Pauline Wong.
I am using Kenwood BM250 bread maker.

I was so tempted by Rita's variety of bread recipes that she had tried baking on her bread maker. Just imagine dumping the ingredients (in sequence!) in your bread maker, press some buttons and forget about it. The next morning, wakes up to an aroma of your freshly baked loaf of bread. Good idea? Not unless you follow the steps carefully as according to tips given by Pauline Wong from Mamabliss.

Here's what I've found at Kymm's Kitchen - a fluffy bread recipe that can be baked into loaf or buns!


180 gm bread flour
120 gm cake flour
20 gm unsalted butter
30 gm sugar
20 gm unsalted butter
210 gm (Full cream milk + 1 egg yolk)
4 gm Saf Instant Dry Baker's yeast
4 gm salt


1. Make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature.

2. Fit the kneading paddle in your bread pan.

3. Add egg yolk, milk and butter into your bread pan.

4. Tip in all your bread flour and cake flour covering the entire wet ingredient surface

5. Add sugar and salt at the opposite corners and yeast in the middle

6. Insert and lock the bread pan into the bread maker.

7. Cover the lid and switch on your bread maker

8. Set your menu at number 1, 750 g and light crust
(The loaf weighs slightly more than 500g so I decided to choose 750g)

9. Press the start button

10. The bread maker will start kneading the ingredients into a dough within minutes. Scrap down the flour from the sides.

11. Close the lid and leave it to complete its full cycle. Please do not open the lid throughout the entire proofing process.

12. The dough doubled in size after first proofing. 

13. After one night of sleep, wake up to the aroma of your very own fresh loaf of bread!
This loaf of bread keeps soft and fluffy for 2 days in an airtight container. You can soften the bread again by steaming it.
