Although very basic the Cookworks machine really is a great little workhorse. We lost the paddle for it for a couple of years - it eventually turned up in our son's bedroom drawer ((??)) - so in the interim we bought a cheap replacement, but that eventually burnt out so back we went to the Cookworks.
So what do we make in the bread machine?
On average we bake about three loaves of bread a week (every day when we're snowed in). It also makes the dough to make home made rolls that we eat with bowls of wholesome soup. I love the fact that you can make standard, quick or rapid loaves - handy when we've run out of bread and need a loaf for the table in just over an hour.
We also make white, brown or wholemeal loaves, depending upon circumstance.

The machine makes the dough and we add the toppings.
It could be as simple as pesto spread over the top (as in picture) or a bit more elaborate with sprigs of rosemary, sun dried tomatoes, sea salt and olives. Whichever way we choose, if it's sitting on the bread board when the children walk in from school,it won't be there 20 minutes later!
