now watch your waistline..
nice work.. I love baking bread.. make it almost every day.. haven't bought a factory 'loaf' for donkeys years..
once you try homemade you don't want to eat anything else..
@ScotJimland it was a Christmas gift, a day breadmaking including sourdough, I enjoyed it..
unusual gift .. much better than a pair of socks..
now you have been inspired are you going to make at home ?
Actually I have got a new pair of socks on today that I had for my birthday. Marks & Spencers - boy they are comfortable. In fact they are the most comfortable socks I have ever worn
So so, I have been interested in Sourdough...
Christmas gifts, I am difficult to buy for, I don't have a need for anything and therefore this was something that was indeed different, they also used organic yeast not the mass produced stuff,,,
impressive bread making skills on here.....
we have a Panasonic bread machine which works well. but I like the Cranks style loafs

As yet cant find a recipe for making this kind of dense, heavy, wholemeal loaf.......any bread machine experts out there?
... when it comes to socks I'm more a Lidl man
it can be addictive mind
What? Wearing socks? Not surprised in a British winter
I have a Panasonic as well. The mixes come out nice, but I have yet to make one in the machine from scratch that is as good as one made by hand.
We have a Panasonic too. But hubby only likes white bread and I can't eat it due to Gluten, wheat and yeast!
Hmmm....maybe I should use a tin and oven...God! so 1890's!
Cat 53, I cant eat salt thats why i bought the panasonic, loads of salt in commercial bread......cant you make rye bread for yourself?
ShiftZZ and ScotJimland - outstanding performance chaps. I have used a breadmaker for a few years and have recently advanced to soda bread in the Rayburn. Now, armed with Paul Hollywood's book, I intend to move on to the proper yeasted stuff. You have set a high bar to clear!
we the the bred maker in the skip and make our bred from scratch every time well when I say we I meant her indoors
I had poor results overall with my Panasonic machine. Then recently I started to mix my own stuff not buy pre-mix and I must admit the results speak for themselves inasmuch that the bread dissapears pretty much at the first sitting.
Not good in a diet situation! I too got a bread making book for Christmas, but I got socks as well from someone else
Very inspiring Mr Shiftzz.
Impressive bread making ShiftZZ
Since this thread is about bread here are a few piccies of bread stuff we have made in the van' with our Omnia Stove
My first attempt at Bread Rolls....
Tea loaf (Mrs Chox made this)
Chelsea Buns (Kate made these too.....yum yum)
What is it about older men and bread making?
When I was young its the last thing I thought of doing
Never thought I'd see a solicitor write that about making "bread"
