Onion Soup Bread

Not everyone has a bread machine in the home but I thought I would include this book for those who do. Audrey loves to use the bread machine as it is simple and she gets to pour all of the ingredients in. Like cooking with a crock pot, the bread machine allows the toddler to be involved in most aspects of food preparation. My favorite bread machine cookbook is The Complete Bread Machine Bakery Book, for obvious reasons. It really is an all encompassing book. Here are some pictures of Audrey's first attempts at using the Bread Machine. We have come such a long way since then. Here is a recipe we like for Onion Soup Bread:
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp unsulphured molasses
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter or canola oil
  • 1 pkg dehydrated onion soup
  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cormeal
  • dash of salt (optional)
  • 1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
Pour the buttermilk into the baking pan of your bread machine and add the molasses, butter or canola oil, onion soup  mix, flour, cornmeal, and salt if desired. Distribute the yeast according to the instructions given for the particular bread machine you have. Bake on a quick cycle.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Pour all ingredients into the bread machine
  2. Push the button to start the baking cycle
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Assist Audrey in putting ingredients into bread machine
This is a simple one but very fragrant. We like it with butter or as a side with noddles.
