I love kitchen gadgets and John will probably tell you we have too many. We have a tiny kitchen and only really have room for things we use a lot so multi functional appliances are a must have for us. Something I’ve been thinking about buying recently is a bread maker but wondered if I would use it enough. After having a look around, I found that Panasonic Bread Makers have loads of different functions and can make a lot more than just bread. I never would have thought of some of the things you can make so here are 5 delicious ways to use a bread maker:
Pizza is one of my all time favourite meals and I do love a stuffed crust! I always thought something like this would be a bit tricky to make but it doesn’t have to be. Katykicker has a great recipe for making stuffed crust pizzas in her bread maker. This recipe makes me drool and I know it would be one of the first things I made.
Jam and Compotes
I was so surprised when I found out that some bread makers come with a jam and compote setting. With Christmas just around the corner this would be a great opportunity to make some homemade gifts of jars of jam. It would be lovely to have some homemade cranberry sauce or jam all ready for Christmas dinner.
Another Christmas classic is Panettone. Supermarkets can charge quite a lot for this delicious Italian treat but making your own could not only save you a lot of money but you can also make it exactly how you like! Just like with the jam, this would also make a fantastic homemade gift this year.
Lemon Drizzle Cake
I am a big fan of cake, no matter how it’s made but I’m honestly not the best baker in the world. Lemon drizzle cake looks amazing and is such a popular choice. If this cake can be made in a bread maker, I’m sure a lot more can be too!
Honestly, I have never had a pretzel of any kind before. Erin loves the crunchy kind but these big, soft pretzels look far more appetizing. I’d love to try making them myself to find out if we all like them or not!
How delicious does all of this look? What would you make first with a bread maker?
