Do you have a bread machine?

I have never used one until today and I have spent the last 6 hours making bread today.

I really wanted to make something that tasted like Christmas, so I have been experimenting with breads that are sweeter.

I feel like I am always saying that I’m experimenting on here, but that’s what creating recipes is, right?  

Experimenting is an imperative part of being in the kitchen or else you wouldn’t have half of the dishes that you get in restaurants right now.

Anyway, back to my bread machine.  

These things take some practice don’t they?

Have you used a bread machine before?

So, I made two loaves today.  

The first loaf, I did not like how it turned out at all.

Well, I guess I shouldn’t say I did not like everything about it, the taste was great, the visual aspects were not so good.

I wanted to add in some things that remind me of Christmas, like cinnamon, walnuts, currants.  

Which makes using the bread machine even harder, you have to add in all the ingredients at the perfect time and it was difficult to know when to do that.

But it turns out, your bread machine tells you when to do it.

I also wanted to pair my bread with a cinnamon honey butter that I whipped up.
