My new toy - a learning experience ;-)

Have had two attempts at making the perfect loaf of bread - we have attained a 95% success rate ;-)

the first loaf (750g) was not crusty enough on the top, but lovely everywhere else.
the second loaf (1kg) raised too much and stuck to the window, but was lovely to eat nonetheless ;-)

I am attempting another 750g loaf today, following the instructions on the Laucke Breadmix packet.

We will have crusty bread with our Pasta Carbonara for tea!

We have a breadmaker!

Yes, I have given in - hubby has wanted one for a long time, and now that I have the time to try some new things in the kitchen, I agree with him ;-)

we had our first loaf last night, and I was so excited, I didn't take any photos ;-(

I will post some pics on the weekend after we have had another play.
