Homemade (vegan) Bread
I did it! I fi-na-lly successfully made bread in my bread machine! Funk’s grandma gave me her old bread machine a few years ago, and after two failed attempts at bread, I put it away in the basement. I wanted to give it another try this weekend, since everyone says bread machines are totally goof-proof (I defied the odds). Unfortunately every bread in the book the machine came with included butter, eggs, or dry milk, making the bread vegan un-friendly. After some googling, I found this bread recipe, and while I’d rather stick with whole wheat bread varieties, I thought the white bread would be a safe place to start.
Four hours later and I had the most perfect, warm, crusty loaf of bread. Ever. I couldn’t wait long before taking the bread knife to it.
Still hot with some blackberry jam.
I realized that the last few times I tried the machine, I didn’t notice there was a separate canister to add in the yeast. That is due to the fact that I am terrible at reading directions. As in, I don’t read directions. But like everyone said – if you follow the directions, you can’t fail!
