How Does a Bread Maker Work?
A bread machine simplifies the normally tedious process of mixing and kneading dough, easily creating homemade bread. Think of this small kitchen appliance as a tiny oven that can make one to two loaves of bread at a time. A bread maker kneads your dough, then bakes it into the bread of your choice, with a color from golden brown to dark and crusty. A kitchen stand mixer can knead dough, too, but a bread maker is a single appliance used to make bread instead of needing multiple appliances. You could, however, use the bread maker solely for mixing and kneading dough and then use traditional cookware and bakeware to complete the baking process in the oven. Breadmaking is still a lengthy process, even with an automatic bread maker, as yeast always takes time to rise, even in the easiest bread-machine recipes. You’ll love the delay timer on many bread makers, which allows you to program it to start at a convenient time.
An electric bread machine is a great shortcut to fresh-baked bread. Fresh ingredients and proper use of your bread machine will guarantee fresh bread every time. Make sure the recipe is the right size for the machine. Add bread flour, salt, sugar, warm water, olive oil and then fresh yeast. As soon as all the ingredients are inside your bread maker, you just press start and let the machine do the heavy lifting. Check out more small kitchen appliances to complete your cookery.
