Trial and Error

    Trying to make a sweet bread in the bread machine and it is rattling like nobody's business. It also smells funny. Hope it's not about to give up the ghost as it's not very old and I only use it every other week or two. 

   The sweet bread is from a recipe for Russian Kulich which I have made before. I chose it to use up some dried fruit left over from the Christmas plum pudding but I think I may have measured the flour incorrectly. I took the ball of dough out of the machine to knead in the dried fruit, then started the cycle again. So, who knows how it will turn out. Stay tuned for the result!


  1. Fingers crossed. Mine used to make odd noises when the dough was too thick.

  2. Hmmm, just thinking when the last time was that I used my bread machine. Maybe it's time to dust it off and use it again! -Jenn

    1. Home made bread is the best but it doesn't keep very long. I keep mine, sliced, in the freezer.

  3. I have often wondered about getting a bread machine ... I enjoy toasted fruit bread, so maybe not a good idea as I'd be eating a loaf a day! Fingers crossed that all things go well with this loaf & that the machine is ready for the next batch without complaint.

  4. It came out OK and the machine seems fine.
