This is what happens…

First time making bread -oh oh

I think I put in twice the amount of yeast. It’s not supposed to rise till it cakes the lid of the machine and overflows. But all things considered my white choc bread turned out quite yummy!

To me, that is… (yes, ok, I know that breadmaking is a science.)
