Yes, I'm a manual baker and I know there are others on the list.

Certainly! I do this all the time. I just mix the flour, yeast and
other dry ingredients, then add in the liquids, and knead, adjusting the
moisture as necessary. I usually shape the bread into small rolls, but
you can make it into a loaf, either freeform or in a pan. A 1-1/2 pound
bread machine recipe should make 1 standard loaf in an 8-1/2" x 4-1/2"
