Default Our new bread maker

Today my brother-in-law came round to demonstrate how to make a wholemeal loaf. He has the same model machine. Do you think that I should ever take notice of him again?

That ain't pretty. But, how did it taste?

Obviously, something went wrong. Wife looked at the photos and has no idea what went wrong. Maybe too much yeast? Ingredients not in the proper order? Wrong proportions? This has always amazed me as how important these are. Never had the bread overflow in our machine. Need to dust ours off and put it to use!
Harry, when you said "new bread maker," I thought you had hired a new personal chef. G'day!

Gene,I managed to cut a couple of very heavy rounds, I thought that it tasted OK, but then I'm the sort who can't tell Margarine from Butter! Marlene thought that it was doughy.

John, the full story is as follows: My brother-in-law has the same model so I thought that inviting him over to demonstrate was a good idea, he brought with him a pack of wholemeal mix. He carefully weighed the mix and measured the Yeast, then poured two of the supplied measuring cups of water and started the machine. After a short time he looked at it and decided that it was too sloppy so added a heap more mix. The result you have seen.

I just received this shot from my brother-in-law of a white loaf that he just baked. His reason for our failure in that he inadverttantly used the recipe for white bread whilst using whole grain mix.

Are you're still cleaning up, Harry?

Maybe Stick has a manual!

Looks good, Harry. I'll send some butter by PM. Whole grain is usually a bit heavier than plain white bread.
We will be watching grandkids later in October. They all love bread so I mentioned to the boss that we should take the bread maker and let the kids make their own bread. I'll furnish the honey and jam.

I managed to make it almost immaculate with lots of very HOT water and elbow grease before I went to bed last night feeling very tired!
