And if you don’t believe me, then why did I get one of these for Christmas?
See? My momma is just the bestest! Oh yeah, and my dad, too, I suppose. 😛 I have wanted a bread machine for A WHILE so imagine my surprise and delight when I found this under my tree on Christmas morning. To: us, From: my parents. Cool!
I’ve got a loaf of bread baking in it as I type. And I’m soooo excited; it smells sooo good. =) Unfortunately it only came with a handful of recipes. But since I know that y’all are just brimming full of yummy recipes to try, well, inquiring minds want to know. So spill the beans, or the bread dough as the case may be, and share your favorite bread machine recipe.
So far I have recipes for Homestyle White Bread, Traditional-Style White Bread, Classic French Bread, Whole Wheat Bread, Banana-Pecan Bread, Oatmeal Date Bread, Chock Full O’ Chocolate Walnut-Zucchini Bread (seriously??), and an Orange Anise Braided Ring. It also includes a recipe for a standard cake and peach jam. Peach jam? No kidding. Huh. And my mom gave me a recipe for a raisin/craisin bread.
So anywho, I’m definitely interested in more bread recipes or recommended websites. I’d also like recipes for bread dough to make biscuits and dinner rolls, and if you’ve got any other jam or specialty recipes, well, that’s just super neat!
[…] lots of homemade bread, and a sudden increase in fruits and veggies. That’s due in part to my Christmas present, and also in part to the National Body Challenge – which I have decided to attempt with much […]
Lol! Well, I figured you were the one who picked it out. =) It came out good, but I’m not quite sure if I did it all right because it seemed a little dense. Dense but good! I guess it could just be the recipe so I’m going to try it again. Princess wants me to make some cinnamon raisin bread next. 🙂
I love my bread maker! Although it’s been over a year since I’ve last used it. I go in spurts. Anyway, how cool for you that you have one!!! I like making cinnamon rolls (or the dough) with mine. It’s a lot of work/time but they are soooo yummy. Hmmmm….that gives me an idea for this week while the kids are home. 🙂
Oh, I love how it is snowing on your blog! That’s pretty cool!
Thanks Boo’ful! (and Opa says “thanks a lot, I think!) I have all sorts of dough recipes for oven baking and you can call anytime for others as well. Next time you are here, we’ll go through my bread books and you can copy some. Or maybe you’ll get a bread recipe book for…Valentine’s? St Patrick’s? Easter? Mother’s Day? etc………..
ps- how did it turn out??
