My latest bread machine started giving me problems in early March of this year. This lead to pulling an old, hardly used cookbook off the shelf.
For the pictured loaf, I cut the “Basic Yeasted Bread” down to a 1/4-recipe. This yields a single 1-pound loaf which can be devoured easily by two adults before going stale.
Now, in warm summer months, it rises super efficiently, whereas at the start of my old-school bread making adventure I actually set it on a heating pad!
Wish you could smell it!
Here’s a second hippie cookbook I’ve just started using again:
Found I had a 5-pound vacumbag of whole wheat, so wanted to try some bread made with sprouts.
In the past I haven’t had good luck with sprouts, other than lentils. (I think because once they sprout they are basically ready-to-eat.)
“We shall see.”
