My First Loaf of Bread

Bread (490 x 531)

Today I made my first loaf of bread! Well, I’ve made bread things before, but always by hand. This is the first time I’ve made a loaf of bread with a bread machine, which feels like an achievement. I just couldn’t help myself from taking a chunk out of the top before taking the photo. The bread turned out pretty good, even though I almost wrecked it.

My aunt gave me this bread machine and a liquid measuring cup to go along with it. So, I read the instructions on the box of bread mix which say to add 600 grams of bread mix. I pick up the measuring cup and use it as a guide, thinking ‘600 grams isn’t much, there’s way more left in the packet than I thought. This stuff must go such a long way, talk about value for money!’ Then I add the 420mls of water, using the same measuring cup. I switch on the bread machine and walk away.

Ten minutes later, I realise that 600ml in a measuring cup is not the same as 600g, oops! Rush to the bread maker, quickly weigh what’s left in the packet and dump in the remaining flour that I was supposed to add. Phew. Bread saved. First world problem averted.

    You’re not the only one who discovered ml is not the same as g! My mum found out about that too and lamented over the phone for 20 minutes!
