Sick to death of the wind and piss bread in the shops with all its fungicides, flour improvers, vinegar and too much salt? Me too. I used to make my own until I got that crappy arthritis. I never thought I would end up with a bread machine, no sir! But, here I am with it and it is probably one of the best kitchen appliances that I have EVER bought. 5 minutes to put the ingredients in the pan, press start and around 3 hours later a wonderful loaf of good, tasty, exactly as I want it bread. Lidl's flour makes it cheaper than bagged bread and I am enjoying the freedom from mass - produced loaves. Actually, I must admit that it makes a better loaf than I ever did.
I would be interested to hear your thoughts and if you use a breadmaker please put your favourite recipe here.
Long live the wonderful loaf of bread.
My best recipe in a separate reply.
