    I'm making my own bread so come check it out

    Alright then, I'm using a bread making machine so here is the first step. Go down the shop and buy yourself a decent bread mix. I go for a Multi Grain as white bread is crap.

    Home made bread is the best.

    Firstly I give a light spray of olive oil to coat my mixing bowl, I find this stops the bread from sticking to the bowl but up to you. Then we bung in the 310 ml of water.The amount of water is very important to making decent bread because if you add to much or to little its game over.To make a standard size loaf (750g) you need
    310ml.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    Next move is to bung in the 500 grams of bread mix.

    Give the mix a stir so the yeast and bread mix together properly.I do this because I once had a brew fail because the two did not mix properly. Bolliks to that I say.

    Terry: Does all the cool gear you have belong to you, or the firehouse? I know in the US, firemen rotate as firehouse cook (or they used to). Is that the same in OZ, or do you just hang around and play with your hoses?

    Bang down the lid ,select 7 on the machine which selects French loaf style and away she goes. This cycle takes 3 hours 30 minutes. Cooking times can vary but my style of cooking is slow and steady which always brings home the bacon. Cooking is not a race, its all in the preparation.

    Good question, one of the boys bought this machine to work and it was never used
    so I asked the lads if I could have it. They said OK so I bought it home and started making my own bread, I had never done it before and was duly impressed once I worked out what to do. Firstly we play with our hose then cook later.

    ^Pretty neat. My wife makes all of her own bread, but without the benefit of a machine. Got to make sure she doesn't see this thread. Hope you wash up between hosing and cooking....

    The cooking process is finished so its up with the lid and to check out how things went. Fairly good I'd say.

    Lift the mixing bowl from my machine and let it cool for 10 minutes.Some people will take the bread from the bowl and place the bread on a wire rack. Whatever.

    OK a few money shots. This is seriously good bread and the stuff you buy in the shop is no comparison.

    Full bodied full grain great tasting bread. Also you can add herbs and spices at the beginning of the mix, parsley, oregano,cracked peppers etc and whatever takes your fancy.

    This bread is not like you buy in the shop, its a real chunky loaf and you'll find cutting small slices is sufficient. I store it by wrapping in cling rap and freezing one half as It takes me a while to get through it.This bread lasts a lot longer in the fridge compared to normal bread from the shop.

    And at last I get to bang a slice in my toaster, add some margarine and Vegemite and life's good.
