I am just loving my Kenwood Bread Maker which I found on the local Ebay for £12.50, the lady had been given it as a wedding present and only used it a few times.

I started off just by using the cheapest bread flour I could find, but then in Asda  a few weeks back I saw these on offer 2 for £2.00.






The bread is just delicious.

Today I baked the Eight Grain.





I have stocked up so I have plenty to keep me going until the next offer.





So I will be using this from now on.

Sometimes when you find something you really enjoy, paying a bit extra is worth it.



I must try making some cakes and tea breads in the breadmaker, do you make anything else besides bread in your breadmaker?

  1. It looks delicious Marlene and yes, it's definitely worth paying a bit more for something if it's worth it. My breadmaker broke a while back but I didn't replace it as I just didn't use it that often. I still make my own bread sometimes using the no knead recipe. I've just been mixing some ready to bake tomorrow whilst reading this post and it's got me feeling hungry. X

  2. I bake cakes in my bread maker, ginger and carrot work particularly well. I have made fruit bread many times and that is a real delight. I must try that brand of bread mix next time I do a shop.

    1. Sounds good to me, I love anything ginger, and I just love fruit bread, I am not sure if the other supermarkets stock it, but I got it from Asda.

  3. Its something I may consider once i have more time. Hubby is the bread eater but I may be tempted by fresh bread. I very rarely eat bread without toasting it.

    1. Hi Tania, I don't eat bread everyday, but Hubby does, the way I look at it is the more I can make at home the better, if you pop out for a loaf it can easily end up with buying half a dozen more things.

  4. I just do plain white, wholemeal and granary bread in a mixer and by hand. Perhaps I should be more adventurous.

  5. Over here (W.Canada) I buy 7 or 12 grain cereal from the bulk store.(it's made like porridge) and I just replace half a cup of flour with half a cup of the cereal and it turns out delicious. I may increase the yeast just a little and I always add gluten.

    1. Good idea buying in bulk if you have the room.

  6. I make jam in my breadmaker. It always turns out well with no fuss or mess, and seems to use a smaller ratio of sugar to fruit than making jam in the conventional way. I also use it to make pizza dough.

    1. Jam sounds good at least you don't have to stand over a pot.

  9. I don't know anyone who owns a bread maker who hasn't gained lots of weight, so be warned! Fresh, warm bread slathered in butter ~~~
