My downfall is bread, its such a staple for me. Sandwiches, toast, egg on toast, toasties, fried bread & bread and butter pudding. Bread is so easy to put together in a lunch within a few minutes. Plus all the different types of bread is pretty amazing and nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread.
The first bread maker was released in Japan in 1986 by the Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. (now Panasonic). A decade later they had become popular in the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States.
A bread maker has been on my wishlist for a while I like the concept of adding all the ingredients and making new tastes to try. Plus never running out of bread, you can make it in a few hours.
Panasonic have some multi use bread makers , not only do they all make bread to your requirements with 25 bread & dough modes. They all can make cakes, jam & compotes. They each feature a fruit/nut dispenser which allows them to dispense at the right time for the freshly cooked loaf.
To create a loaf of bread, ingredients are measured into the bread pan in a specified order. The order of ingredients is important because the instant yeast used in bread makers is activated by contact with water, so the yeast and the water must be kept apart until the program starts. The bread makers are all digital with timers so you add the ingredients then start the program. The bread makers come with a non stick pan and you can create a loaf in M,L & XL sizes.
One of these have definitely been added to my wishlist!
