I have inherited a bread maker and a 10kg bag of bread mix. I have wanted one for a while but figured we didn't have room for any bulky appliances as our kitchen is so small and we have no storage. I found a place to keep it though, around the corner on my food storage (book case) shelf in the hall way.
I have basically been baking bread for the last three days and I feel like Wonder woman. I guess most of you out there have bread makers so the novelty has probably worn off. I have only baked bread the old fashioned way once before, Cheesy bread sticks, which was delicious but making my own loaves of bread everyday is fantastically easy.
The boys were so excited they kept lifting the lid on the bread maker to have a look, so our first loaf rose right to the top and then deflated a little, but it was still delicious. Our second loaf I baked in the oven and came out perfect. Sam and Ethan think I should sell this free bread I'm making. My third loaf is still cooking and is smelling so good that my stomach is growling.
