What you need:
I usually make my own bread from scratch. However, I was given a breadmaker and it would be rude to not try it out.
I put in the water and oil in first (wet ingredients first), then sprinkle the flour on top of the water to form a seal. I then put in the salt and sugar. I created a small well in the dry ingredients and poured my yeast into the well.
Now for the easiest bit, select bread from the menu (there are a number of options, including scone, cake and french), press the start button and let it do it's thing! My breadmaker has a little timer on it and it takes about 3 hours....I'm sure it doesn't take that long without the bread maker, but this is for ease.
