HOMEMADE BREAD AND BEEBZ GETS A MAKE OVER...
After visiting my salon for a a bit of a dodgey hair chop. Bobbin was looking a little bit small and chilly, so i knitted her a new nautical jumper...
First, I poured the liquid ingredients into the bread machine pan: 1 1/4 cup warm water (at 110 to 115 degrees F)
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
Then measured out and added the dry ingredients, adding yeast at the very end.
2 1/2 cups of strong white gluten free flour
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 packet rapid dry yeast or 2 1/4 teaspoons
Then i pressed a button and it started movin' and a bakin' me some homemade warm bread.
I kept peepin' through the widow watching the dough. it was pretty exciting stuff! a couple of hours later the beeper beeped and i had bread. marvellous.
once turned out and sliced it kinda tasted like crumpets... can't wait to toast and butter it up.
