Panasonic Breadmaker. Yesterday I set it up so that we could have fresh-baked bread first thing in the morning.
I'd not made bread since I was a child, and had never had a breadmaker. To be honest, I was expecting a dense bready lump to come out. I was incredibly surprised by the resulting loaf: a crunchy crust, a light, even textured crumb and a delicious taste.
We ate the first slice hot with jam.
3/4 tsp dried yeast
400g wholemeal strong flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
Put all ingredients (yeast first, then flour, then liquid) into breadmaker. Programme. Wait.
