Broken Bread Machine–Enter Hand Made Bread

I know it’s not a life changing event but here is my first batch of bread from scratch by hand for a very long time.

We got home from America only to find the bread machine, which I used to make my dough, had decided it had had enough – after all it worked very day at least once in its long life.  So now I have decided to make my bread completely by hand; it takes a bit longer but I do get a work out with the kneading and I can control the rising, allowing the yeast to ferment slowly therefore preventing the bread bloat which can happen with shop bought and machine made bread.

And best of all it tastes great – Yum.
