Adventures in Breadmaking

I like to use my bread maker to help me make dough. I don't have the patience to make dough from scratch, so I let the machine do most of the work. Here, I followed a recipe from the bread maker's instruction manual, substituting En-R-G egg replacer, Silk, and Earth Balance margarine for butter, milk, and eggs. After and hour and a half of the bread maker's kneading and rising, I spread the dough out on a cookie sheet, sprinkled margarine, cinnamon, sugar, and chopped walnuts onto it, rolled it, and cut it. After they came out of the oven I drizzled a Silk, vanilla, and confectioner's sugar icing on top. They were AWESOME!!!

Here is a loaf of oatmeal, cinnamon, and walnut bread:

...and here it is sliced with some margarine... ...and sprinkled with more cinnamon!

I also use the bread maker to help me make pizza dough. Here is a white flour pie, half with cremini mushrooms:

I love mushrooms on pizza!

... and here is a whole wheat pie, made easier with my handy bread maker!

I wish I had a breadmaker. I'd probably make fresh bread more often that way. But I wouldn't have the counter-space for one...sigh...

Who would have thought that adding vanilla to the icing sugar would make it taste so yummy, but it just makes the cinnamon rolls doesn't it!?!
I love my breadmaker for doing all the hard work for me, and for helping me get fluffy bread! yay!
