Bread. Nearly everyone eats it. It’s a staple for a lot of people and you’d be hard pressed to find a home without it. One thing I do love is the smell of freshly baked bread. Freshly baked bread dripping in butter and smothered with honey. Yum.
The town of Tom Price in which we live has been without a bakery for quite a few years now and the towns folk have had to rely on buying it from the supermarket, or making it themselves. Buying from the supermarket is obviously convenient but it’s not the same as making it yourself.
We’ve had a bread maker which I have used on and off over the years. It’s worked fine. The bread cooks and makes a nice crust however, the loaf is never even and a big hole is gouged out of it every time when removing it from the bread maker due to the bread cooking around the mixing blade.
My friend at Sugar Snout has been baking bread and bread rolls using her Thermomix and oven for as long as I have known her, and the results are amazing. Every time.
Last night I was chatting with Peta-Maree from Thermie and Pete and we were discussing bread and how easy it is to make it in the oven and that there is a bread tin available with lid that guarantees an even shaped loaf. So I bought one and decided to give it a go.
NOTE: The house smells amazing as I cook my first loaf and wait for it to finish so I can take a photo of the finished product.
What I learnt… Bread is very very easy to make without a bread maker. There are a literally hundreds of different recipes that can be found on the internet. I’ll definitely be making this again.
Until next time…
