Sweet Saffron Machine Bread

This bread came out very soft and airy, more so than my regular bread. I created this recipe by mistake mid-February when we had guests over for brunch. Since then I have tried it a few more times to make sure that it is consistent 🙂 but it can be tweaked again.


  • Carnation evaporated milk (1 can, 12 fl oz), Almond milk (~2 tbsp)
  • Unsalted Butter (3 tbsp), Olive oil (~1 tbsp)
  • Almond extract ( ~1 tsp)
  • Granulated sugar (6 tbsp)
  • White Whole Wheat Flour ( 1 , 1/2 cup) , All Purpose White Flour  (1, 1/2 cup)
  • Saffron ( ~1/2 tsp)
  • Salt ( 1, 1/2 tsp)
  • Active Dry Yeast ( 1 sachet, 7 g, 1/4 oz)


What You’ll Need:

  • Bread Machine
  • Measuring Cups
  • Wire Rack


What I did:

I used an all in one method, measured all ingredients into the pan of the bread machine, liquids first and yeast last. Follow the instructions of your machine. I did not have to bring the liquids to 110 Fahrenheit /45 Celsius degrees or melt the butter because my machine has a pre-warming phase, so I let that heat up the liquid.

During the kneading phase, I check the texture to make sure the dough is not runny/ liquid ( add more flour, a tsp at a time ) or too dry (add more liquid, a tsp at a time)

I have yet to try the recipe by hand (old-fashioned way) to see what works or needs tweaking. It, however, is a delicious bread and a great hit with everyone. I am sure gas-oven baked will be even better!
