Basic white bread in Bread maker with review (Panasonic SD P104) pros, cons. Detailed video and pictures.

I bought bread maker last month and when I posted photos in my stories, many of you asked about my views and asked to share recipe too. This recipe is what I follow in my bread maker. You can try the same in traditional way too, but this is customized for machine process where it undergoes a good amount of high speed kneading, given several hours of resting time. So you may want to put some effort and spend time to get similar results.

The bread maker is really helpful if you consume bread in regular basis. You can get a homemade bread just by dumping all ingredients, a push of button. No need to worry about the additives and preservatives that you kept worrying with store bought bread. white-bread-in-bread-machin

I am sharing this post just to help who are in dilemma to buy or not a bread maker. I am based in Singapore and this model is available here. If you are in other part of the world, try to find similar ones reading reviews that are available in the internet. This post can help you to get an idea about bread maker. And if you are buying go for fully automatic bread maker.

If you are in India, the Panasonic bread maker is not available there as of now.

What made me buy bread maker machine:

Last two years both myself and Vj started thinking how the store bought bread is soft, white and stays good for long time. I even have discussed with friends how unreal they stay as such and dream soft the store bought bread are.

Aj, Somehow he consumes bread in every weekday. He loves it as it is convenient for him to have it as quick bite in recess, after meal snack (yeah, after meals, we snack!😁) So it had me worrying to give him store bought bread even though I swap white bread with mutli grain bread. After thinking for a while finally bought this bread maker.

After almost a month of usage, I am finally getting a hold of it. I am trying to explore various options of adding healthy ingredients to the break. Already tried 50 50 maida and atta (wheat flour, all purpose flour) bread and convinced with the results. Also started sneaking a little of ground flax in it. For sandwiches, you might not even know the difference.

So here’s basic white bread recipe in bread maker.

It will be maintained in rest mode before starting it’s process according to it’s scheduled time.

Take out immediately from the machine (use oven gloves), loosen up the sides (not needed necessarily) and invert the pan to a counter top. Wait to become warm, slice using a bread knife.

Storage

  • I use a clean kitchen towel and wrap loosely the bread when it is hot/ warm. Place over wire rack for cooling. Once cooled, I slice (you can slice when it is warm enough to handle itself) and store in a container. Stays good for 3 days.

Notes

  • Suggest you to buy bread knife as it is must for getting the bread sliced easily. Normal knife gives you hard time.
  • Bread is soft when taken out. Next day you might see it slightly getting dense.
  • After 3 days it might get spoiled.

  • Shape of the bread is bit different from usual bread from bakery, it looks like vertical version.
