I used to have a breadmaker ….. in the cupboard! It produced beautiful loaves of bread, but it was massive and I have a tiny kitchen where bench space is at a premium, so I kept it in the cupboard. And everytime I thought about how nice it would be to have a beautiful loaf of bread freshly made, I thought about how long it would take me to get the beast out and set it up – and invariably I went to the supermarket around the corner and bought a loaf.
Seeing as the thermomix has a permanent place on my bench I thought I would try out some bread. Actually the scenario was more like both the kids were napping (very unusual!), I had no bread for lunch and I came across a recipe with a name of “plain white rolls – no fuss” and I thought it was a sign (maybe from the god of thermomix??).
Here are the beautiful breadsticks shaped and starting their second rise. I made mine with wholewheat which is why they look darker.
Yep, they were easy, no fuss breadsticks. They were gobbled up by Mr 2 and Mr 5 as soon as they were out of the oven and I was a smug mum thinking how wonderful it was that I had just made bread for the kids lunch!
I’d like to say I will be baking my bread from now on but I know it’s not going to happen. But I do hope that on weekends when I have a bit more time, I might just whip up a couple of these loaves for a Sunday lunch!
Oh yeah – the recipe is here for those who want it http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=4253.0
