I’ve never had many kitchen appliances but as I’ve gotten older and busier I find some of them are indeed time savers and a great help.
My husband and I much prefer making our own bread but it does take time and effort and we certainly don’t have the time. For years we toyed with the idea of buying a breadmaker but heard on the grape vine that they only made small loaves so we thought there was no point bothering with one. Just after Christmas some bread we had bought at a local bakery tasted a little strange so we decided to check out the breadmakers again and low and behold they now make loaves in three sizes, 750 gram, 1kg, and 1.25kg so we bought one. It was the best thing we ever did as far as having delicious, wholesome, healthy and fresh bread.
It’s so easy to make a loaf, all we do is plonk the ingredients in, press a couple of buttons and in a few hours we have the aroma of fresh baked bread in our kitchen and delicious bread that we know has no unpleasant ingredients.
It’s hard to resist fresh warm bread with butter and cherry jam. The breadmaker we bought comes with a recipe book which includes herb and garlic bread, and rye bread. It has a fruit and nut dispenser and also makes cakes and jams. I’ve already made sun-dried tomatoe and olive bread – delicious!
