T.I.L.T – My Bread Maker

Fresh, wholesome warm bread every morning. Need I say more.

I was spoilt on my birthday last November. Living in Asia means it’s very difficult to buy whole grain bread as most ‘bread’ contains a disproportionate quantity of sugar and butter to flour. And although there are hundreds of options when buying a rice cooker, you’ll not find a bread maker anywhere. So when I was told to search the apartment for my hidden gift, I went searching for something much smaller than a toaster. Behold – A Panasonic SD-YD250 bread maker imported from California by my darling.

Homemade Bread #1

And here’s my creation. I ignore the recipes in the booklet as they all contain milk powder or butter. Instead I use this fail safe recipe for whole-wheat white sandwich bread:

2 tsp salt
1/3 cup packed raw brown sugar
4 1/4 cups whole-wheat flour
1 1/2 cup warm water
2 tbsp vegetable oil (canola)
2 tsp active dry yeast

You need to follow the directions of your bread maker as to when/where to add the ingredients. For mine, I add everything in the order listed except the yeast which has a compartment in the top. I set the bread to BAKE, LARGE, MEDIUM CRUST for 4 hours. That’s it.

You may also add to it (by the tablespoon) lineseed, flaxseed, sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds.

Not to be a crusts hater, but that first real slice of warm bread is the best. The better than butter melts on the surface and you can see the whole-grains and seeds as you munch on your creation. Muwha!

    Hi! Love your blog! very inspirational and fresh :) Thank you for sharing this recipe. I live in Korea too and I was just wondering, how did you find the whole wheat flour? I can’t find any whole wheat breads here so I thought of baking it after I saw your page. :) thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

    How did you handle the voltage conversion? Did you use a large transformer? Or is this Panasonic model multi-voltage?
