My Homemade Bread Tips
I mix and knead using the dough cycle on my Breville Breadmaker. This cycle takes 1 1/2 hrs.
When adding ingredients to the pan use lukewarm water and add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.
Let the process finish and turn onto floured board, very lightly knead and the cut into usable sizes and lightly shape before placing into the pan.
My new pans I purchased from http://www.mackies.com.au/
