Playing With my New Toy - a Half Price Breadmaker!
|Watching the dough rising|
For this basic white, I used the simple 25p loaf recipe but added in some milk powder, sunflower oil and sugar, seeing as it was a very special occasion - the breaking in of the new breadmaker. In all, even if I had paid full supermarket price for the flour, it would still cost less than 50p for the load even allowing for the electricity to bake it.

Great excitement, as the loaf adequately filled the pan and turned a beautiful golden brown on top.
|I think this is a better shape than the tall loaves made in the old Fastbake machine|
The freshly baked bread tipped out of the pan easily and the paddle/mixing blade remained in the pan, rather than in the loaf - a definite plus!

I am very, very pleased with my wonderful new toy. I can see us spending many happy hours working together over the coming year to produce our daily bread.
