The first 'allsorts' I want to tell you about is the breadmaker I have had for some years. One of those 'toys' you just can't live without, then you get one, use it almost to its death, then decide you have had enough fresh made bread. So it got put away in the cupboard.
But recently my BIL in UK wrote that he made bread, so the idea popped into my head ahaha I have the breadmaker lets do it again.
Now being The Scot and The Sassenach...... he likes white I like wholemeal. But we will both eat the other.
So I alternate the two, also buying the bought 'stuff' in between. The Scot hates repetition.
I think one of the reasons we became a bit fed up with it was because it made such large loaves.
But upon reading the Instructions,
of course I do, thats why I have only just found out, I can make quite a small loaf.
Its taking a bit of adjusting, water wise. But today ......
not too bad but I am having some trouble getting it out of the pan, but today found out that if I let it cool a little more - it comes out easier.
But I still seem to get The Bread with the Less Fattening Bottom
a hole in the middle. I guess it will always be there as this is how the paddle of the machine mixes it.
But on the whole the bread tastes good and we haven't thrown any out.
Talking of toys. Here are two ............. one I hate the other I have just discovered and I love
