Crazy about my bread maker

Published by at 9:50 pm under All,Food/ Shopping,Miscellaneous

I bought a bread maker just before Christmas, and ended up loving it. It is a house brand of Tesco, but actually made by Elba – saw exactly the same in Jusco except for the button color! Anyway, I have been experimenting some bread recipes and have been crazy about it.

From My Bakery

Bread making is unlike cake baking, I do sweat a lot in making bread (except loaf bread, those are super easy!). Even with bread maker, there is still lots of ‘hard work’ to do, especially if want variety – every single bun must be hand made, the bread maker doesn’t helpt me to do that, LOL!

Here are some bread that I’ve made. Some I have shared recipe in my cook blog. Do check out Suzette Cooks for cinnamon rolls recipe and rosemary bread (this one is a loaf bread, really no brainer but extremely yummy!). And coming up soon will be other breads below… :)

    Wow! You really can bake. The breadmaker will be wasted on me. Haha.

    No, it won’t, if your family eat a lot of bread! You know how bad the bread improver can do to our body? And the bread sold at stores, are all enhanced with bread improver. With a little of bread improver, the same amount of ingredient can produce a lot more bread than without. That’s how they profit from selling bread. And that’s how the bread so airy – you press them and you get a thin slice, whilst home made bread is so compact, yet can be very soft. Very filling, and yummy. :) you will wanna bake more. Hehe!

    thanks for sharing, my next project is baking bread, actually. Probably, I’ll get it start next week as my toddler loves bread, and our family too. I’ll be back to this site when my project starts, once again, thanks! :)

    hot much is the bread maker? and how long it took to bake a loaf of bread?

  7. suzetteon 25 May 2012 at 10:29 am

    I paid RM199. Detail of this breadmaker can be found in my cook blog here: http://suzettecooks.com/2012/01/my-new-bread-maker/

    It takes total of 3 hours, but your involvement is only in the beginning – put in all ingredients, switch it on, then you can leave it until it beeps for you to remove the bread out. :)

    Does this mean that the bread maker can replace oven in terms of baking the bread (or any other breads i.e. bun, small buns etc).

  10. suzetteon 10 Jul 2012 at 12:26 pm

    No, only for loaf bread. If you want to shape your bread, you need to remove from the bread maker and shape into desired shape, bake in oven.

    Hi suzette,

    I am so interested to buy a bread maker. After almost a year, how is your Tesco brand holding up?

  12. suzetteon 21 Nov 2012 at 9:37 pm

    Cynthia, my Tesco bread maker still holding on strong! You can definitely use it, not bad at all. Go go! And let us know your experiments and come share your recipe here. LOL!

    Hi Suzette,
    You have made bread making so interesting! I have bought this Tesco breadmaker at the offer price but somehow, there was no guidebook in the box when I arrived home. Tesco do not have a spare copy, so the bread maker has been left in the box since. Can you share with me how to operate the machine? Is it possible to scan and share your guidebook or where else can I go for a copy?
    Much appreciate if you can help.

    Hi Suzette, just want to know how come my bread turn out very hard. Not soft or fluffy. I am using no 1 for basic bread.

    Hi, Suzette,
    My bread is not soft and fluffy. I am also using option 1 for basic bread. I followed the instructions in the manual from the breadmaker. It is hard and sometimes crumbly too. :(
    Any idea why this is happening? Amy suggested solutions? Thanks! :)

    Sorry for the long delayed reply. I guess the recipe you use matters. There are many recipes using whatever 5c method, tangzhong method, etc. I lately discovered that, by adding a little of cream cheese, or mashed pumpkin/ mango, can make our bread very soft for days. You can try that. Ian loves it so much that he can eat 2 loaves in 5 days, all by himself.
