I finally bought a breadmaker. The " sale " did it after all that research.
I love it (snowed in with my Toastmaster Breadbox)
#1. Why can't I use all purpose flour. I have some to get rid of two
#2 What is gluten and where is it sold? And if I have to add it, in
#3 Can bread be salt or sugar free or does the yeast need them to rise?
#4 What is "proof the yeast"
#5 Why do measurements have to be so exact? I cook with "pinches" and
get crazy when asked to do something EXACTLY.
I have most of my trouble with the yeast packets. Some of the recipes
ask for a 1/4th more or less. I dump the entire packet and it seems ok.
Much thanks for the help you all gave me in my efforts to find a
breadmaker. This is a most awesome list. Thanks in advance for help
with these questions. Bonnie
