Benefits of December

I know the calendar says it's not winter yet, but my body says otherwise. There's something about the atmosphere once we hit December that makes me want to eat homemade bread, soups, and roasts. For all the crappy things winter brings, that sure isn't one of them.

Tonight I made my very first loaf of bred completely in the bread maker. I let it do the rising and the baking. The ingredients couldn't have taken more than five minutes to throw together and that's including the cleanup. It's cooling now so we've yet to dig in. Hope it's good!

Does anyone know when you're supposed to remove the bread from the bucket? Should you wait for it to cool first or do it immediately?

    1. It is actually quite good. The consistency is perfect, but I think it's a little too sweet to become an everyday bread. The recipe I used is this one: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/amish-bread/

      It's a perfect breakfast bread if you like french toast or toast with jam.
