Making Bread

My Home Made Bread
So I have dug out my old bread maker from the depths of my cupboard and had a go at making my own bread. After reading an article about how bad shop bought bread can be for you, making my own has been on my mind for a while.  After looking through the instructions I chose the bread type I wanted and added the few ingredients it requires to make home made bread and a great smelling house!  The ingredients required to make your own bread are minimal and usually, flour, water, yeast, sugar, salt and skimmed milk powder.  And with a bread maker it is so simple, by just adding the required amounts measured in cups or spoons and pressing 'start' all you have to do is wait and the machine does all the mixing, kneading, proofing and baking for you. Three hours later your home smells divine and your family have great tasting, soft, warm bread!  My daughter is already addicted and we went through a whole loaf in just one day.  So here's to my new resolution and lifestyle choice, to make my own bread from now on..let's see if I can keep it up and I urge you to give it a try! :)
