There are only the two of us around most of the time now so no point in making much bread and allowing it to go to waste. 2 Day old bread is not so interesting to either of us and you can only make so many bread crumbs.
Love it! But again how much bread can you eat?
The bread-maker fulfills the wonderful smell of fresh baking bread but there is something really nice about getting your hands on beautiful bread dough.
This bread-maker does many things that I like a lot.
It makes the best lemon curd … oh my!
Something I did not do often until this machine … as much as I really love lemon anything.
Then I happened upon the “Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day” written by Jeff Hertzberg, M.D., and Zoe Francois
What a fun experience this was. No kneading or heavy mixing required. You dump everything into a plastic bucket or bowl. Stir the few ingredients together let it rest then pinch off about a grapefruit size piece make it into a ball. Let it rise and bake.
I do have a great set of Dough-Joe® Pizza and Baking Stones.
For years I used a thinner pizza stone that fit the bottom of my stove. It however was rather thin and these are close to 3/4 inch thick and I love them … what else can I say?
Some complain that the stones are in 4 pieces. If it is a problem I have set mine on a large cookie sheet.
The thick stone makes a wonderful crispy crust on your bread as well as pizza.
Here is a video of Jeff and Zoe showing you hot to do it … enjoy!
