Not Even Breadmaking 101

A while ago my cousin Viv was telling me about the wonderful bread recipe she got from a friend. Bread that was just incredible!! Well of course, I HAD to have the recipe. It was for a 2 pound loaf, but she and I figured that if I just cut the recipe in half I'd be good to go. I made the bread and then there was this smell of burning bread....... ooops, not the smell I'd been after.
It turned out that the dough had risen out over the outside of the pan and then cooked (burned) onto the outside of the pan and the inside of the bread maker! RATS! I had to put a wet washcloth over it for most of the day to finally get all of the baked on bread off.

So, thinks I, I'll try this again. After all it's just a matter of ingredients and the bread maker does the rest. This was my second attempt. BUT dum da dum dum.... at least this time I was on the watch.

I checked the bread YES it was on the outside but I very cleverly took the pan out put the bread into the pan and let it bake. Well a picture is worth a thousand words.


I WILL try this bread-- but Viv will have to make it for me. I am going back to my old recipe!!:) Hmmmmm does this mean I visit her or she visits me?
Back to the old stand by recipes for me:)


  1. Okay everyone.... Sidney does not know the difference between 2 Tablespoons of yeast and 1 teaspoon of yeast. The difference is what pours over the top and cooks (burns) into the machine. Sidney it is 1 teaspoon... you know the little one!

  2. Okay, I had no idea you have a blog!! Yay! Don't worry, I cook like that all the time. It's a wonder my family is still alive! My fire alarm is my timer!


I LOVE comments!! They make me smile! Thanks!!
