Everyone that has ever cooked anything knows the importance of following recipes carefully, measuring ingredients carefully, and cooking correctly to ensure an enjoyable tasty end product.
As a first time bread baker, I too understand the importance of following a recipe closely.
I will say, however, that this recipe is surprisingly forgiving. Ready access to all ingredients is not always that easy here. I have prepared this recipe lacking proper measuring cups, measuring spoons, mixing bowls, and even an oven, but the bread is always wonderful.
Intimidated to cook your own bread? Do not be intimidated. If this novice cook with minimal equipment and skills can make bread, you can too.
For the purist that prefers a traditional rectangular loaf of bread? I am looking for a rectangular bread pan that will sit nicely in my cooker. Once found, new bread recipes will have that more traditional shape. Tongue in cheek, required.
Please look for my other bread recipes using the same cooking method, such as banana bread and apple cobbler.
