Bread maker and basic bread recipe

breadmaker1

On Saturday morning my hubby surprised me with a top of the range Morphy Richards Fusion Bread Maker. I was happy and excited and dumbfounded and intimidated all at the same time. Not only can this machine bake breads, it can knead dough for pizza or other goodies and you can even make jam with it. It also has different sizes pans, which allows you to bake bread to snack on or something so large it can feed an army of forty.

Later that day we baked our first bread in the bread maker, and it was a triumph! *Reason for lack of photos.

The day after we baked another bread, this time a larger one. By the second bread I was comfortable with the machine and I was buttering slice after slice of hot fresh comforting goodness! *Reason for lack of photos.

I am so looking forward to experimenting with different ingredients and baking bread frequently. With summer coming up I’ll even try my hand with a few jams.

  1. Lucky you. I have wanted a bread maker and an ice cream maker for years. Needless to say I have neither because I keep talking myself out of buying them.

    1. Susan, I’ve had my ice cream maker for a year now – it hardly has time to pre-freeze as I use it constantly. I’m thinking it’s going to be the same with this bread maker.
      Treat yourself – you won’t regret it! 🙂
