the love for my bread machine grows stronger everyday! silly statement i know, but it is so very true.
just kidding, i did NOT name my bread maker, but i do love it! i don't care for the loaf size so i usually use it to make my dough. bread dough, pizza dough, cinnamon rolls and even dinner rolls.
i dump the ingredients in...put it on the dough cycle...
and within an hour to an hour and a half i have my dough. all the...ahem...hard work is done for me! when my machine beeps, i pull it out, prep it and viola! for example...if i am making pizza for dinner i would add all the ingredients as per my bread machines instructions. i would select setting number '10' which is the dough setting on my machine. after it does all the mixing, kneading and rising it will beep to let me know it has finished. i then pull it out, roll it out onto a preheated pizza stone, add our toppings and then pop it in the oven. FINISHED!
pretty cool right? i would do something similar for cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls. i just follow the recipe and let the machine do most of the work!
so in conclusion, go get a bread machine. just kidding, well sort of. i wouldn't buy a brand new machine, if you can help it, but start looking at your local garage sales, goodwill's and consignment shops. i have heard of some people finding bread machines for $5. crazy cool right?
