Making bread from a microcomputer Rice Cooker :)


The dutifully rice cooker :)











Who says you need a proper oven to make a nice bread? well, since i,m moving around so much and going to picnics or staying over at relatives place i can easily make something up out of my rice cooker :) I bought 2 of this one for my parents in law in france hence this one manually translated into french as for the functions of it and secondly one is somewhere in africa now awaiting for me to work on it hehehe. Anyways, i have made cakes with it also as it has a cake funtion button as well, so i was thinking why not bread so i tried it and voila! a wonderful golden bread :)

here is the recipe, actually anykind of good bread recipe will do as this is just another mode of emploi for baking the bread. my bread recipe is really pretty easy to follow indeed :-

The bread starter
  • 1 cups of warm water
  • 1.5 Tablespoons of active dry yeast
  • 1 cup of plain flour
¤ mixed all up and wait for about 30 minutes or less until it becomes frothy

The dough
  • 1 cup of wholemeal plain flour
  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • 1 Tablespoon of salt
  • 1 handfull of cereal
  • extra flour (almost a cup)
  • 1 cup of warm water
¤ mixed all the dry ingredients up and finally pour in the "bread starter" [pic 1] to the dough and mixed well adding every now and then extra flour until it forms a dough [pic 2] then let it rest for 1 hour

¤ after for about an hour the dough will resemble something shown on
[pic 3] flatten out the dough [pic 4] and finally let it rest for about 3 to 4 more hours until it resembles the dough in [pic 5] the doubled now sized dough indicates that its ready to be baked

¤ baked in the oven for 45 minutes until its brown or golden on the top or if using the rice cooker for about 1 hour until it resembles like the picture on
[pic 6]

a voila! my golden brown bread made from baking in the rice cooker :)

have a go everyone!


À bientôt!
