I just had a comment from @breadcentric who has been absent from Steem for a while. I met him at one of the London meetups where he gave me some fresh bread to take home. I just had a look and saw the @breadbakers account has also recently returned. Maybe it is time for more baking content.

I am not much of a cook of any sort, but I do have a bread machine. I acquired it from a former colleague who was getting rid of it. I like the convenience of being able to load it up and then everything is automatic.

Machine

What I tend to do is to set it up before I go to bed and set the timer for it to be ready when I get up. You need water, flour (I use a mix of white and granary), salt, sugar, butter and yeast. The amount of yeast is fairly crucial. Too much and it balloons over the top, too little and you get a small loaf. I got it about right this time.

I had already had some of the loaf for my lunch today. I found a full brown/granary loaf can be too heavy and pure white can be a bit bland. This has a nice crunch crust and fluffy inside.

Bread

Today I had it with peanut butter, which I have got back into recently whilst cutting down on cheese.

Crumbs!

Thank you for using breadbakers tag @steevc! That's a great advantage to use a bread baking machine to have freshly baked bread ready for breakfast. The smell may work better than alarm 🍞 Keep on baking!!

It's a great smell to wake up to. Just need the machine far enough away to not keep me awake with the noise it makes when mixing.

Gotta get back into using mine. Damn you temptress!!!

@breadcentric used to submit some tasty entries to #steemitsandwichcontest ;)

nice to see some ppl returning after (what is probably a healthy break) lol.

I hope more will come back. Steem has changed and there may be exciting stuff coming soon. Rock on!

We got one for my dad many years ago, but only ever used it once when he visited and didn't take it with him. It'd been sitting in the cupboard since, so i shipped it off to my sister last week. I'm sure she'll be using it.

What's the bread actually like? Does it have the feel of oven baked bread?

I think it is pretty good bread. It gets well mixed and rises well. I ought to be more adventurous with the recipes.

I used several bread machines, some brought great results, some not (the last one had a too long second kneading cycle and did knead all the air out of the dough). And waking up to the smell of fresh bread is awesome :)

I think I got lucky with this one considering it was free. I know some have extra features, but this does what I need.

Very nice! My mom has a bread machine and she used to make all kinds of wonderful treats for us. One of my favorite was the sourdough loaf that she would occasionally make. Great stuff!

I've not tried that yet. Just made simple loaves and pizza dough so far.

Healthy bread for active sportsmen lol. Good food is essential @steevc!

I'm not interested in a flagging war, but I don't want this sort of nasty comment on my posts. My downvote policy is to do what is good for Steem and people buying votes as you did is depriving others of rewards. It should be obvious that the community is taking action against that story of behaviour now. Striking out against all these people is not helping your case at all. You are free to do what you want, including downvoting me, but the community has a say in your rewards.

I'm not just here for the money.

Go in peace.
