I love to bake and try out new recipes like this one. I love this recipe, and I think you will, too.

My mom loves making bread. When I was younger, she used to make bread from scratch. She loves using the breadmaker to mix her dough then takes the dough out and lets it rise before baking it in the oven. On the other hand, I love to use the breadmaker to mix the ingredients and bake the bread all at once. I remember using it for the first time years ago. I had placed the ingredients in the maker and pressed a button. About an hour later, I was wondering why it was taking so long to mix and then I realized that I had pressed a button that not only mixed it but baked it at the same time. I thought this was awesome. The breadmaker is a great invention. You can use this recipe without using a breadmaker.

As you can see in the picture below, we made this bread to go with the beef stew that we had for supper. Homemade bread with stew was great. The beef stew had stew meat, potatoes, carrots, onions, celery, and lots of spices. It was delicious.
