There was a diversion into breadmaking on the Coronavirus thread and a couple of folk suggested offering some recipes. So here's a starter! smile

This will make a medium sized loaf.

 Ingredients - 210 ml water

30 ml sunflower oil

10 ml clear hoNeyland

200 g grated carrot

500 g white bread flour

30 ml skimmed milk powder

2 generous tsp fennel seeds

1.5 tsp salt

1 tsp dried yeast. 

 

To make - pour water, oil and honey into bread pan.  Sprinkle over the grated carrot.

Sprinkle over the flour, making sure it covers the liquid.

Add the milk powder and fennel seeds.

Add the salt in one corner and the yeast in a small indent in the centre of the flour.

Set bread machine on basic setting and off you go.

When finished knock out loaf onto a wire rack to cool.

TDA, my Mum used to make that bread nearly every Sunday for tea, we called it milk bread. Thanks for the reminder. I'll try and dig out a no knead cook in pot bread....hope this fits in with the spirit  Moulesy if there's no breadmaker around.

Here's one of the no knead bake in a pot breads, looks like gluten free flour can be used too. There are similar recipes around, scroll down for the recipe. >BREAD<

I make a bread maker loaf every other day (overnight - timed to finish at 5:00 when OH gets up, then it’s cool by breakfast after milking).

My go to recipe is (and sorry it’s a mix of units).

18 oz flour (I include in that a 5 seed mix, about a quarter of total)

teaspoon salt

2 teaspoon sugar

knob of butter.

350 ml water.

teaspoon yeast.

Breadmaker set at XL, dark crust. 4hr 5 min.

I vary it by using different flours, adding sun dried tomatoes, cheese, herbs, dried fruit and various nuts, malt extract.

No proper recipes (I’m not one for recipes) - just try it and see. 

The only time we buy shop bread is for silaging boxes.

I think we have the same recipe book M! I just can’t get hold of any more flour at the moment and yeast is like unicorn poo!

I tend only to make normal bread in the breadmaker and bake it about every four days as we don't eat much bread.  It makes lovely toast.  Fortunately, at the time of lockdown my bread flour tub was full and I've managed to get more from Tesco to top up the tub since.  I have half a little tub of dried yeast left but my son's neighbour managed to get me some more yesterday from Asda.

Looking forward to some alternatives to try.

The Breadmaker has certainly been working overtime over the last two or three weeks. Sorry to say I can't offer any recipes as I just eat it! Agree with Jill's comment about toast. Simon managed to get some French bread flour from a farm shop which is quite nice as it gives a more robust crust and perhaps slightly denser bread. Yeast could be our Achilles' heel if it doesn't turn up with out next delivery! Good luck to all with your on going bakery.
