From time to time, Louise's Cookbook Wednesday posts have been about cookbooklets. And last week, Poppy posted about a recipe book that came with knives. That got me to thinking about my new bread machine and its predecessors. The first ones came with some half decent cookbooklets.
The first bread machine I bought was in the late 1990s. It made a 1.5 pound loaf in about 4-1/2 hours. It came with this spiffy little book, which has a fairly sturdy cover - standard paperback book cover material.
It wasn't long, but it was functional, and its recipes were good.
The second bread machine made a 2 pound loaf in 3 hours. Oh, happy day!
Its recipe book was 3 times the size of the book that came with the original machine. Its cover wasn't as good, as you can see from the water damage to it.
But it included color pictures!
I'm not sure where someone came up with the idea for chocolate yeast raised bread. Sounds suspicious to me. Plus, they clearly didn't include proper instructions, since the source of the chocolate is chocolate chips, and they don't specify melting them.
I don't have many appliance recipe booklets, but I've kept every one I ever got. Maybe it's time to look through them again.
Happy Cookbook Wednesday, everyone! Pop on over to see Louise and check out what she and others have to offer.
