So we've had our glorious breadmaker for two weeks now, and after lots of trial, error and tweaking, I do believe I have the perfect loaf. Move over Chorleywood and the national loaf, this is MY loaf...
We like a good seeded loaf in this house, but finding a good one is a a bit of a mare. Seeded is good, but too often its like a bird feeder, so rather than using ALL seeded flour its some seeded and some brown. And at about 51p, its win win really. Fresh bread, cheaper and just the way I like it. The recipe is in cups, because that is much easier for just slapping into the breadmaker and pressing go.
2/3 cup + 2 tsbp water
1 1/2 cup seeded bread flour - I use the red Waitrose one.
1 cup brown flour
1 tbsp butter (I guess you could use any oil or margarine if you wanted)
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp / sachet of yeast
Put the ingredients in your pan in the order above, and go. I do this on the French setting my breadmaker has, and medium crust. Very yummy, as well as easy to slice.
