Panasonic SD-YD250 Automatic Bread Maker
The Panasonic SD-YD 250 automatic bread maker is the perfect machine for my needs. It's a total and complete life saver for me. I often make use of the 4 baking options that aren't related to just dough making. I have no clue how to bake a bread. However, this machine makes it so easy for me. All I do is put the ingredients in and start it. When I'm done its the easiest cleanup ever done.
I frequently use the timer on the bread maker. It's a thirteen hour timer. I set it at night and I usually have a medium sandwich loaf ready to slice up for some breakfast and some slices to pack a sandwich for lunch. The machine makes loud beeps for the bake options and the dough options. When it beeps with the baking options I know that the bread is baked. When the machine beeps in the dough raisin or bake raisin options I know its time to put in the dried fruits. The machine does this so it doesn't crush the dried fruit when kneading the dough.
I like that the machine has three different options that are totally automated. When I put the machine into these options all I have to do is put the ingredients in and put the yeast in the yeast dispenser at the top. The machine will mix them, knead them, rise the dough and then bake automatically for me. For a basic loaf the machine usually takes about 4 hours to prepare it for me.
This is a simple recipe I used to make a medium load of basic white bread.
- 14.75 Ounces of flour
- 1.5 teaspoons of salt
- 1.5 tablespoons of dried milk
- 1.5 tablespoons of butter
- 1.5 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of dry yeast
- 10 fluid ounces of water
- Add all the ingredients to the breadmaker
- Put the yeast in the automatic dispenser at the top
- Select the bake mode and everything is done automatically for you
