Breadmachine Why was I SO scared?!?!

Okay, I know what you are thinking.... Why scared of a bread machine?!?! I can not tell you what the reason was now ~ probably some lame excuse to not try something new.  Many that I spoke to that had machines suggested that  I  use those bread mixes for my first try but if I am going to do this then lets do it all the way.

My first try was a Tender cheese bread and well it kinda did not come out looking so hot see....
 Something went wrong...a tad on the short side!

Alright on to try number two...  Going to give this White breakfast bread recipe a go.
Yeah, Me!  Something went right ;)  

Okay, this recipe is a keeper and we will give the first recipe another go since I think I figured out what I did wrong. I placed the cheese in after the flour ~ probably should have placed it in prior to.   I do believe that they mean it when they tell you  a certain order to put things into the machine.  

That day I also found out how to make some buttermilk if you do not have any...
{this was a day of making due with what I had... Hubby would kill me if I used all the milk and did not leave him any for his am coffee so I had to make the milk from dry milk powder then turned that into buttermilk.  Next time I will buy buttermilk or turn our milk into buttermilk.}

Pumpkin Loved helping and watching the dough while kneading.  The aroma of the bread baking was intoxicating and the silence during our meals with it is enough proof that I will be making many more loaves of bread this year.

Girls still wanted to eat the Tender cheese bread with dinner and like they say about book covers.  It was good just not pretty.

Next baking adventure.... pie crust from scratch!  Eeeppp!

  1. Glad you got a bread machine. I love mine and have posted some recipes. Nothing beats the smell of bread baking and I love the fact that it does all the kneading for me. Hope you get many more great tasting loaves.

  2. I used to have a bread machine and it was pretty handy. The only thing I hated about it was the huge bread cubes that came out of it!

  3. I love my bread machine! I'm glad you decided to give yours a try! :)
