My husband just bought me a bread machine for my birthday.
Funny caveat here before I get to my question, I have been
hinting that I would want one for quite some time. So, my
husband brings out this little box on my birthday, like you
put earrings in, and gives it to me. All the while I am
thinking "Jewelry? ok, look happy, even though you wanted
the bread machine" So, I open it up and there is a little
piece of paper inside that says "Bread machine is in the big
box in the pantry!" I was so happy, I was jumping up and
down, and my husband was laughing because he thinks I am the
only girl who would ever want a kitchen appliance more than
jewelry, but I am sure I could introduce him to a number of
you who feel the same!
So, I know we had this string before, so e-mail me privately
if this gets too repetitive, but now I'd really LOVE all
those bread machine recipies that you were all speaking
about. He did get me a cookbook, too, but all of the
recipies call for fat and I haven't used a bread machine
before so I don't know how to compensate. For example, I
know I can replace the fat with prunes or apple sauce for
sweet breads, but there is a curry bread that I want to try
so I need a fat replacer that is not sweet. Ideas?
Also, my bread maker makes jam. Does anyone have experience
with this function? I'd like to try it, but any mistakes
are going to result in a BIG sticky mess!
Thanks!!! I am so excited!!!!!
