    White bread recipe- Bread machine

    This is a simple white bread recipe and makes the most perfect white loaf for your family. Make sure the size of the an will provide enough bread at once for the size of your family. Believe me, buy the biggest size in order to save time, money and electricity for the long term.   Small: 350g-375g Flour Medium: 450g-450g Flour Large: 600g Flour   Trouble Shooting: If the bread falls in/flat: The moisture content needs to be 65% if the moisture content is higher than 70% the bread will collaps. The bread sticks to your pan: You need some oiliness in your recipe. If your bread comes out doughy and not evenly rissen:You will need to change the setting to brown bread so that the prooving time is longer. Annelien Pienaar

    White milkbread (bread maker)

    The Bread machine To summarise this machine, can be used for multi purposes like baking bread with yeast, baking quick breads containing baking powder and baking soda e.g. carrot cake, bananna bread, and even some cakes. Using the bread maker it is very important to read the manual as not all bread makers are the same. Note that it is most important to layer your ingredients correctly, most bread makers you layer your liquid first then the dry ingredients following by the raising agents... The recipe follows by Small, meduim and large. Annelien Pienaar

The end results is a silky smooth pasta with the hint of nuts and fruits. But of coursee you can use plain water instead of the wine.

    Honey & oat bread

    I am not quite sure which is better, the warm bread fresh out of the oven or the toast it makes the next day- that's if there is anything left. The sweet flavour of the honey really adds something to this bread and the buttermilk gives a wonderful texture. Stoneground flour is another important ingreient, as the courser txture of the bread gives it that real homemade feel. This is such an easy bread to bake, that even th unexperienced bread baker, will be able to follow the instructions and serve a warm bread fro their own oven in no time. Heleen Meyer
