  1. Does anyone know how to make this properly without a bread machine? I have heard some bread recipes can be made in a slow cooker/pressure cooker (that has a slow cooker function). I want to try this out the photo make it look very nice and I'm in a bread making phase right now lol


  1. This is a fantastic bread recipe which has worked really well for me when I have made it wih whey and when I stuck strictly to the recipe. It rises extremely well. Moreover it holds its shape and stores extremely well overnight and for a couple of days without going hard if accidentally left out. Great fluffy texture. All the good things about a plain white bread without the preservatives. This recipe has joined the very exclusive "Zaar recipe good enough to have been made twice" club and there are less than a dozen that can claim that fame.
  2. This recipe makes a very tasty, easy bread. I will be using this recipe often. I liked that it has no added fat and calls for ingredients I always have on hand. Thanks!
  3. This is one of the best bread machine recipes that I have ever made. It is fast and simple. We didn't have any sugar so we use brown sugar instead, and it still turned out wonderful.
  4. Horrible. A waste of time and ingredients.
  5. delicious and super easy, have made it 4 times in about 2 weeks since I made the first one. I put the yeast and sugar in on the bottom, then flour and and salt then luke warm water on top. fluffy delicious bread everytime. occasionally will add walnuts or other nuts, a great addition.


(READ MORE ABOUT ME AND MORE RECIPES AT vanessafrida.livejournal.com) Thanks for clicking on my name and finding out more about myself. I stumbled upon 'zaar by chance, and I have been hooked ever since. It is just so much easier surfing online for a recipe then flipping through a zillion cookbooks. I am a big fan of healthy meal, and i love to use heaps of garlic in my food. Guess it is the asian blood in me. :) And I am a real sweet tooth, and I'm constantly on a lookout for cake and biscuit recipes. Have a look at the recipes i have posted, and tell me what you think. Thanks!
