I know this is kind of backwards, versus what you see a lot of people doing (rising dough and a bread maker and baking in a regular oven), but I teach middle school and another teacher has a bread maker in the classroom, and has been baking bread for the kids.
I make sourdough bread in a conventional oven, and haven't used a breadmaker. We wanted to do an activity around mixing and rising sourdough, and learning about yeast. But then to put it in the bread maker so the kids could see it fresh baked.
Is there usually a setting for this, and or would you recommend a temperature and time? Is it pretty comparable to temperature and time I would normally use? I bake at 430 to 470 F for about 50-55 minutes.
Can I set a breadmaker to skip the mix and rise steps?
