Homemade bread makes me happy

I continue to miss the fresh bread from our time in Lyon. Rather than bemoan the quality of our local offerings, we decided to return to making our own bread.

Freshly baked homemade bread

I bought a bread maker many moons ago. The machine is a traditional Russell Hobbs model. Nothing fancy but capable of more than I immediately need. Since then prices have dropped, and Aldi is now selling a bread maker for 79 AUD. I suspect you could find an even less expensive model.

A loaf of freshly baked homemade bread

A single loaf tended to get me through a week’s worth of lunches. I was single then, but even with two of us a dense loaf is enough for our working day lunches.

We are currently experimenting with soy and linseed variations. So far so good.
