My date with Ken Wood…

It was such a bleak day in Edinburgh the other day there was nothing else for it but a bit of home made bread….with the help of my trusty breadmaker I hasten to add.  I dusted down Ken (Wood) from the pantry, very happy to see him, it’s been a while and we were very close not so long back (don’t let mr predictable know that!). Kitchen renovations this year have seen him pushed right to the back of the pantry and almost forgotten about. Never mind, he’s back with me now!

So, ingredients all to hand, the pantry is well stocked so no need to even leave the house, perfect.

Chucked in everything I could in the hope that a granary loaf would come out the other end! Added a few extras, rude not to, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and a few sesame seeds for extra crunch. Yum…it’s a waiting game now…..

zzzzzzzzzzzz…………..3 hours 25 minutes later………..(that’s the problem with bread makers, particularly Ken, he seems to take AAAAAAGES)
Wow, blooming marvellous, I am very proud!

Yum, couldn’t wait to get stuck in…I did wait though, about another 3 hours 25 minutes (could have made another loaf) when the lovely Mr Predictable got home and munched his way through several ‘thick cut’ slices….
I love Ken, he’s a top date, I’m meeting up with him again soon, he has very low expectations but always provides a decent result, yay!
