Maple Buttermilk Bread in the Mini Zo

This is one of the first recipes I made using my bread machines (I had a 2-pounder early on and now I have a 1 pounder).  I even gave this as a Christmas present a couple of times; a loaf of homemade bread,  Michigan maple syrup, some confectioners’ sugar and some homemade strawberry preserves.  Oh, and of course the recipe to make the bread and also the recipe to make French toast.

I highly recommend Lora Brody’s book “Bread Machine Baking” (first published in 1993)which includes 75 foolproof recipes for every bread machine on the market.  It is well written and easy to read.  I now have a Mini Zojirushi and for each recipe Lora Brody breaks down the ingredients for each machine. So, the following ingredients are for my machine and not any other brand.   If you want to get the correct amounts for your machine you need to buy her book!


Maple Buttermilk Bread in the Mini Zo

  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 2-1/2 tbsp. Michigan maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp. water
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 tbsp. dried buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1-1/2 tsp. active dry yeast

Place all of the ingredients in the machine, program for firm bread and regular crust and press Start.

Looks good, huh?

See my recipe for French Toast Three Ways using this delicious bread.  See another good recipe using your Mini Zo, Portuguese Sweet Bread for the Mini Zo.  A third recipe I have is Sandwich Bread for the Mini Zo.  Also, see my post Kitchen Gadgets – Bread Machines.

  1. Powdered buttermilk does not contain live bacteria like the liquid so I am not sure what adjustments you would have to make. You probably need to cut back on the water but what else I do not know. I am still researching, so if I come up with a better answer I will certainly let you know 🙂
