I finally made homemade bread last night.
In the bread machine.
That I bought.
Over a month ago.
Yes, like most things during this Covid-19 period, it was a saga. First I ordered the bread machine from Amazon. It was the KBS Pro Stainless 17 function Model. High amazon recommendations, lower price. So I figured why not?
Well, after about 3 weeks it finally arrived. But then came the chore of finding all the ingredients to actually make bread.
The stores I went to? No bread flour. No yeast. No sugar. No powdered milk. No baking powder. No eggs. You get the picture.
Over a couple weeks I was able to score bread flour. And eggs. And baking powder. And sugar. But no yeast. The most important ingredient and there was no yeast to be had. Anywhere.
I finally found some through Amazon and ordered it. My one pound pack arrived yesterday. Hallelu!
So I found a basic white bread recipe, dumped in the ingredients. Hit start and… voila!
Three hours and 11 minutes later— warm, crusty bread.
I had a couple slices last night while it was still fresh and warm. With butter. It was yummy (mostly because I haven’t had bread in my house in 9 months).
Now I just have to get some sourdough started.
