Using all purpose flour instead of bread flour won't result in taste differences but it will give the bread a different texture and it may not rise as well. I've got a recipe that works wonderfully with all purpose flour and the family LOVES it!
1/2 c. cooked white or brown rice
1 1/2 Tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
Put the above ingredients in a 2 cup measure, add enough warm water to make 1 1/2 c. Dump in bread machine pan. Add:
2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. sugar
3 c. all purpose flour (I've also used 1/2 white & 1/2 wheat or all whole wheat flour)
1 1/2 tsp. yeast
Depending on your preference, you can set the machine to the desired crust setting for white bread OR use the dough cycle, remove the dough when done and form a loaf, place in a greased loaf pan and let rise until 1 inch above pan sides. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from pan as soon as you remove from the oven.
