If Bread be the Staff of Life – Make mine a Crispbread!
From time to time I get my Breadmaker out. I have made every bread recipe in it and it all comes out too heavy. It is however fine for just making and kneading the dough and I have great success by using it like this. However last night I had a disaster. This time, instead of adding the ingredients, I used a shop bought dough mix. I’d bought this mix before and had good results with it.
I used it in the machine as usual, but no matter what I did it wouldn’t rise when I got it out, even though I kept it in a warm place. In the end after 1 and half hours waiting for it I gave up and put it in the oven. It came out like a kind of thick crispbread…..and away to the bin it went! I won’t give up, it could have been just a bad packet. Next time though wihen using a packet mix, I might do it by hand!
