Bread maker

I was hoping to buy a bigger bread maker but then again, I changed my mind. I hardly need to make a big loaf of bread, or bugs in large quantity, so my small 500g bread maker is sufficient for my family of 4. Besides that, we don’t consume bread everyday and I will try my best to prepare different types of breakfast if possible.

If you are new to bread making, maybe you won’t need a bread maker. Hand knead can be pretty tiring, if the dough is wet, especially those tangzhong recipes. Thus, I’m glad that I have a small bread maker to do the job.

    Hi, what a conjncidrnxe! Was thinking of investing in a bread maker but have no experience in baking at all. Could you share with me the model if your maker? And my friend told me the bread will not be as soft as for instance gardenia bread. Pls do a tutorial! Thanks!

    Irene, it’s a good investment if you are making bread often. Either way, you can use a mixer to knead the dough as well. I prefer to shape the dough by hand, so I’m only using the bread maker to knead the dough, let it proof and shape and bake separately. You can refer to this post.

    Most commercial bread added bread enhancer to soften the dough but if you use tangzhong recipe, the bread is very soft. Please refer to this recipe
