Using a Bread Machine to Bake Fresh Bread at Your Veranda Apartment in Mount Dora, FL
There are few better smells in the world than the aroma of freshly baked bread. It’s comforting, delicious, and enticing. Not only does fresh bread smell wonderful, but it tastes amazing, too. Baking bread used to be rather difficult, though, before the advent of bread machines. A bread machine consists of a bread pan with one or more built-in paddles that is mounted in the center of a small, special-purpose oven. This tiny oven is programmed by a computer, where you can input the exact cycle you need – whether you want to bake white bread, whole-grain bread, French bread, or any other type of bread.
If you are lucky enough to have one of these machines at your Veranda apartment in Mount Dora, Florida, here are some instructions on how to bake that fresh loaf of bread you’ve been craving:
• First, pour ¾ cup of water into your bread machine.
• Next, add 2 cups of high-gluten flour, covering the entire pan.
• Following that, you’ll sprinkle ½ tablespoon of powered skim milk over the flour.
• Then, pour ¼ cup of softened (not melted) butter into one side of the pan.
• On the opposite side, pour ½ teaspoon of salt.
• In another corner, add 6 teaspoons of sugar.
• In the center of your flour and milk powder mixture, make a shallow indent, being careful not to indent too far and reach the water. In this indent, pour 1 teaspoon of yeast.
• Now, close your bread machine and select the “dough” cycle on your control panel. Soon, you will have a lumpy mass of dough that you can then bake with the settings you wish (located on your bread machine) to create the perfect bread of your choice.
• Let your bread cool in the machine for up to an hour before taking it out and slicing it. Enjoy!
Baking fresh bread doesn’t have to be difficult. With the tips above and a bread machine, you can easily have fresh loaves in your apartment whenever you want.
