French Bread Baguettes
These traditional morning breads are simply amazing. While it may be tough on the outside, it’s so soft and tender on the inside. They are great with jams and even just butter. What’s more is that they have a long shelf life.
Here’s how you can use your Cuisinart’s pizza/dough settings to make this classic bread:
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
- 2 cups bread flour
- 1 1/2 tbsp. wheat germ
- 1/2 tsp yeast
Step 1. Place ingredients (in the order they were listed) in the bread pan, the place it inside the Cuisinart Convection Bread Maker.
Step 2. Press Menu and choose Dough/Pizza Dough.
Step 3. Select dough size. Press Start to begin the mix, knead and rise cycle.
Step 4. When cycle is complete, remove dough, punch to deflate and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Step 5. Slice the dough into equal sizes. Shape each piece into a long narrow baguette and place it on a baking sheet that has been dusted with cornmeal. Loosely cover with a plastic wrap and let rise for 30 to 40 minutes.
Step 6. Place a pan of hot water on the bottom rack of the oven and preheat oven to 425°F while waiting for the baguettes to rise.
Step 7. Dust dough lightly with additional flour. Make four diagonal gashes in each loaf about a quarter inch deep with a serrated knife.
Step 8. Bake bread in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until browned and should sound hollow when tapped.
Step 9. Take the bread out and transfer to a wire rack.
Step 10. Let it cool for a few minutes before serving.

Sweet Potato Cloverleaf Rolls
Just as the name says, these rolls are shaped like clover leaves. The natural sweetness of the sweet potatoes make this bread one my favorites. Many of you would know this bread as a Thanks Giving bread, but as for me, I can have it any day!
Here’s how you can make this bread with the help of your Cuisinart pizza dough maker:
- 6–8 ounces of Sweet potato, peeled and cubed
- 1/4 cup of nonfat dry milk
- 2 tbsp. of unsalted butter (set at room temperature, cut at 1/4 inch each)
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar
- 3/4 tsp kosher salt
- 2 cups bread flour
- 1 tsp yeast
- Cooking spray
- Milk for brushing tops of rolls
Step 1. Put the sweet potato cubes in a pot filled with water. Water should be at least an inch above the level of the potatoes.
Wait for it to boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes until potatoes are tender.
Step 2. Drain the sweet potatoes, but save the cooking water.
Step 3. Measure out the necessary amount of reserved cooking water for the size of the recipe you are making and let it cool to 90°F.
Step 4. Combine all ingredients in a baking pan and mix it in the bread maker.
Step 5. Deflate the dough then cut it into small, equal sizes.
Step 6. Prevent the dough from sticking to the muffin tins you're planning to use by lightly coating them with olive oil.
Step 7. Divide each dough ball into three equal portions. Roll each piece into a small ball.
Step 8. Array three small dough balls in each muffin cup then cover with a plastic wrap and allow it to rise until its size doubles (about 30-40 minutes).
Step 9. Preheat oven to 375°Fahrenheit. When rolls have doubled in size, brush the tops with dry milk.
Step 10. Bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until lightly browned and hollow-sounding when you tap it.
Step 11. Take them out from the muffin tins and serve warm. May be made ahead and reheated to serve.
