Sourdough bread

sourdough-bread-1

I’m not much of a kitchen accessory lover, but there are two things I cannot live without: my ice cream machine and my bread maker. You literally throw all the ingredients into the bread pan, put it into the machine and press a button. Within two hours the house is engulfed with the smell of freshly baked bread – it has nothing on your local bakery.

I try to experiment with different bread recipes, but I think I finally found my favourite. This sourdough bread has an almost sticky texture and taste just as good the next day when toasted. Baking sourdough bread has always intimidated me as it is quite a lengthy process, but if you have a bread maker you need to try this one out.

  1. Now you’re making me want to buy a bread machine! I don’t make it that much because you have to be home for hours to baby sit it…but a bread machine would totally fix that. Hmmm.

    1. I vote that you tell the.boy that it’s some kind of special new wives holiday and he needs to get you a bread machine as a gift. I tell you, it makes life so much easier and you actually know what goes into the bread (unlike store-bought bread).
