Yesterday I came across some machine bread recipes on Pinterest so I cleaned off the Toastmaster and made a simple loaf of grain bread. The only changes that I made were to add 2 tsp sugar and 2 tsp of salt before I put in the flour.
I made the loaf above on Tuesday and the one below I made today (Thursday).
I made a blueberry lemon bread on Wednesday using blueberries I froze last summer. It smelled good but there's a reason it called for dried blueberries and not fresh/frozen. Too much extra liquid. I should have reduced the milk to 1/4 cup. I will try again!
What prompted this bread making is the fact that we buy bread once a week at The Country Pie Shoppe in Donegal. They have fantastic bread, donuts and pies there but I know I can create something equally as tasty using my machine without spending extra money given that the ingredients are something I always have on hand.
