    ... I've a question for those who make their own bread - I got a morphy richards bread maker from freecycle which didn't come with instructions

    I've had 2 breadmakers, prima and cookworks and they both needed ingredients putting in a particular order. I've borrowing my sons panasonic at the moment and that says yeast first, flour etc and then add the water last. The yeast needs to be kept dry until the machine starts mixing

    try here for a manual - you'll need your model no. :)

    and you might be interested in the Morphy Richards BM Club thread ;)

    Oh dear, another failure on the bread front :( It smelt nice whilst baking but when I tipped it out the bottom of the loaf was an inch thick of flour!! I've found the instructions online and like you say the water should go in first - I will try again tomorrow :o

    the prima and cookworks bm's I had wanted the water in first like yours, but the panasonic instructions say water last - I was a bit worried about having a pile of flour left like you did, but it mixed ok ;)

    I had to buy two bread rolls and a couple of slices of beef for sandwiches today.

    Rolls x 2 @ 50c, Beef $1.80

    Thats lunch for two people.

    I need to start trying to make my own bread but its all baby steps for me, dont want to try and do too much at once as I will fail at them all lol

    Morning all
    Can you lovely people (who always succeed better than me!) please put me down for £380 for March?
    Everything seems to be getting out of control in this house, including the spending, & it's a real struggle to stay sane ATM! :( I know I hardly post, but I do lurk & must try harder when I see how much less than me others manage to spend!

    Spent £13 something in Mr T's yesterday on bits and bobs - went in off list and paid for it!

    I did get some bargain cheese for 45p and 50p reduced from £1.90 and £1.80 and a piece of fish for £1, 6 creme eggs for £1.25 in a box when 3 cost £1.25 on offer and a half price easter egg for £1.25. What else did I get? Oh yes 4 pack of napolina toms for £2 (love those and always buy on offer), some jumbo scampi for easy quick teas and a pack of reduced sausages. Can't remember what else. Anyway I'm staying out of the shops for the next 2 days to get some NSDs in
    final unsecured debt to repay currently £8333
