Bargyla, I don't know the answer to that one! Maybe a 
solar oven? Maybe flat bread? (Chapatti?)
You're right though. A bread machine usually is (electric) 
switched on for 2 - 3 hours, the kneading time, the rising 
time, and the baking time. It would probably be as costly 
as a traditional oven used for an hour. At least it doesn't 
heat up the house while it's working, though. 
Actually, I have a friend who is so impressed with her 
solar oven, (sun something or other brand), she's going 
into business selling them. I was wondering if anyone 
uses one, and actually to what benefit they'd be. It seems 
like it takes 'days and days' to cook a meal in one, even 
in our Tx summer heat.
