I “borrowed” Mum’s breadmaking machine and our first attempt has been a delicious success. I say “our” because Nipper 3.0 was the only family member who was not involved in its creation: much excitement about a machine that makes bread. I picked the recipe up from Bibliocook and the inclusion of fennel seeds is supposed to aid milk production. I managed to get all the seeds except one type and included equal amounts (about 35g) of linseed, pumpkin seed, sesame seed and sunflower seeds. We set the breadmaker to complete before breakfast and the aroma of freshly baked bread that greeted us this morning would put a smile on the face of even the grouchiest morning grump! Delicious!
Here’s a pic of the crumb of the second loaf I made (24/03/2010) – it has a great aniseed-y smell & flavour. Nipper 1.0 really likes it too
