The future father-in-law makes really delicious homemade bread with the bread-maker. I keep on telling everyone in the family that the bread-maker is a must-have appliance in my kitchen next time. :P
Here's how a bread-maker looks like.
And here's how you make your own homemade bread.
- 1 cup of water
- 3 cups of flour (normal or wheat)
- 1 teaspoon of yeast
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 2 tablespoons of margarine / butter
- 2 tablespoons of milk powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- Raisins, dried cranberries, assorted nuts (optional)
Mix everything together and place the dough in the bread-maker. There are a few program buttons on the bread-maker. You can choose the type of bread you want to make by pressing the buttons. It's similar to operating the microwave oven. So, just follow the manual to find out how long does it take to make a loaf of bread.
No preservatives are used. You will need to refrigerate leftover bread if any.
