Making bread

Tuesday, October 20, 2009
Last February while cleaning out my parents house, my sister gave me her bread machine. She loved it and used it often. As a baker, I've always been partial to the old fashioned way of baking bread: mixing, kneading, rising, and baking by hand. I was skeptical about using a bread machine. It seemed like cheating.

Yesterday, we finally broke out the machine from the garage. I wanted to give it a whirl. Our first attempt was unsuccessful. We had a power outage about halfway through the baking cycle. There was nothing we could do to salvage the bread. The dough had to be thrown away, and we had to start from scratch. Our second attempt was a keeper. Our house smelled soooo good. Warm bread with butter and jam! You can't beat it :)
