Raisin Soy Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2003
This is surprisingly good. The bread rises well, keeps for days and has a very nice flavour. The only bad thing about it is the crust, even on the light setting it tends to taste burnt, but that certainly doesn't put me off making it. For an interesting variation, try replacing the soy milk with Earl Grey tea and soaking the raisins in it for an hour beforehand. Yummy.

Baked Pretzels

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2003
These were very good, crunchy outside and soft and chewy inside. My flatmate and neighbour stole most of them. I found they were especially good sprinkled with sesame seeds as well as the kosher salt. Don't make these if you're on a diet, they're irresistable. Oh, and don't feel you have to use a good beer, I use Tesco Value generic 2% volume lager and they still taste good.

Argentine Chimichurri Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2003
I did enjoy this bread. I thought it lacked a little in cayenne, and the oregano was somewhat overpowering, but that may be my personal taste. I would guess it goes really well with beef, though as a vegetarian I was stuck with eating it with baked beans. Decent stuff, and good toasted, just go easy on the herbs.

Dr. Michael's Yeasted Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2003
This turned out okay, more of a cake than a bread in my view, I've never found a bread with egg in that I really enjoyed. It was a gorgeous colour though, and had a very nice crust, but I did end up turning half into a bread pudding and half into croutons. However, if you like your bread sweet and eggy (challah fans?) you'll probably enjoy this bread.

Date and Nut Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2003
I make this bread at least once a week, it's a good source of fibre so you can pretend it's healthy if you leave out the nuts. It's highly sweet, so watch out if you haven't got a sweet tooth. The recipe is easily adapted to incorporate other dried fruit such as pears or figs. If you want to be able to find any chunks of date in the bread I'd recommend ignoring the beeps and adding the fruit only about two minutes before the end of the kneeding, otherwise the blade tends to just smooth them into the bread.

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2003
These were pretty good. They were somewhat crunchier than I expected, but that wasn't a bad thing. They looked really good, even on my first attempt. A little squirt of cooking oil spray made all the difference with removing them from the tray after baking.

Pumpernickel Rye Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2003
Mmm, very good. I visited America this summer and fell in love with pumpernickel bagels, then cried when I came back to Scotland and the best I could get was German Rye bread. This recipe stopped my tears, it is better than the bagels. It has a strong flavour, plenty of caraway seeds, and works well even if you do just bake it in the breadmaker. The bread also keeps well in the fridge for ages.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2003
Very, very good. I used golden syrup instead of brown sugar for extra sweetness, which worked really well too. I was surprised by how well this bread turned out, what with it using non-bread flour, but the texture was wonderful and light. Very tasty, very easy and very cheap to make.

Blueberry Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2003
I really enjoyed this bread. I added some lemon juice and used soymilk instead of buttermilk because of my diet, but even so it tasted amazing. I ate it warm, in chunks, covered in soymilk. It's not too sweet, really easy to make, and the dried blueberries didn't break up in the bread machine. Great stuff.
