Bread Machine Disaster

Hell, that don't look right!

Hell, that don’t look right!

Since I left cubicle hell last October, I have made friends with my bread machine. I have only had one snafu and even then, part of the bread was edible. But this disaster takes the ribbon!

While not edible, it is interesting to look at.

The bread machine came with an instruction book which has some basic recipes. So I decided to try a new one for me, the French style bread. I followed the recipe, except I used whole milk instead of water plus powdered milk. I don’t think this was a problem as I have used whole milk in all my bread machine recipes and I make bread 1-2 times a week.

The machine has a French bread mode, which I selected (as per the recipe) and I did notice that it takes ~1 hour longer than the normal bread recipe.

At any rate, it was interesting to look at. Right? Pretty crustations on the outside of the pan, melded on crust at the top, sunken bready crater. Oh yeah, art in bread form!

The chickens LOVED this bread.

I hollowed out the bread, then had to chip off the rest.
