Bread for Life Cookbooks
These cookbooks are a great boon to those with Electrolux mixers because the recipes in them were developed by author Beth Holland using the Electrolux DLX mixer. Most of the bread recipes in Volume 2 actually contain specific instructions on how to use your Electrolux mixer to best advantage recipe-by-recipe. Between the quality of these solid, practical recipes, and directions that are tailor-made for your Electrolux mixer, we don't know what more a DLX owner could ask for. We recommend each highly. They're also excellent for owners of other bread-kneading mixers like the Bosch Universal Plus mixer.

Volume 1
has 52 pages and 168 recipes. Most are the simple, basic sort of recipes you need for everyday living. Yeast and quick breads, desserts, and main dishes are among its eight sections. See the table of contents & recipes below. One special note: New Electrolux users will want to start with with the basic bread recipe and the table of contents kind of "camoflages" it... it's at the top of page 9, titled "Breads and Rolls."
See the table of contents & recipes below.

Volume 2
has 184 pages and 250 recipes. This volume adds more basics, but also ventures into greater creativity. There are many more yeast breads, from "Linda's Bread" (basic whole grain) to "Maple Nut Twist Coffee Cake" and "Zesty Tomato Pesto" and "Toasted Pecan Date Bread." Nine recipe sections cover Sourdough as well as Cereals, Main Dishes, Hor D'Oeurves & Toppings, and many more. See details below.

Volume 3 is Beth's newest and largest work. It's organized by themes, making each section a "mini-cookbook" of its own. Volume 3 is 200 pages in length, and offers over 300 recipes including variations. See details below.
