Introducing the NN-CD87KS Convection, Grill,

Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked pumpkin bread ☺🍞! Turn on your sound for some ASMR (which will do til social media invents a scratch and sniff button 😅). The bread had subtle undertones of pumpkin, the most divine crumb and a glorious crust. Bread is one of my weaknesses so I was thrilled to try @Panasonic_AU's new breadmaker. I just put in all the ingredients, walked away and hours later I had hot crusty bread🤤! Check out the link in my bio for more info on the breadmaker. Meanwhile, are you bready for the recipe? PUMPKIN TOAST Bread 1 ½ cups (225g) chopped pumpkin 2 ½ tsp quick yeast 3 cups (400g) plain flour ½ cup (125mL) plant-based milk, such as almond, soy or coconut 2 tbs olive oil 1 tbs coconut sugar 1 tsp salt Toppings Nut butter, yoghurt, fruit, nuts or whatever you have in your pantry 1. To prepare the pumpkin puree: Boil the chopped pumpkin in a small saucepan of water for 15 minutes or until soft. Drain the water and puree the pumpkin with a stick blender. 2. To prepare the bread: Add the ingredients to the Panasonic Hard-Crust Breadmaker in the following order: yeast, flour, pumpkin puree, milk, oil, sugar and salt. Select the ‘whole wheat function’ (number 4) on the breadmaker. The breadmaker will rest, mix, rise and bake the ingredients. 3. When the bread is ready, remove it from the breadmaker and let it cool. Use a serrated knife to cut toast slices out of the bread. 4. Top the bread as desired and enjoy! @Panasonic_AU #ad #HardCrustIsAMust

Are you Bready for the most delicious CRUSTY PUMPKIN SOURDOUGH RECIPE ever?? SAVE THIS Post!! . I recently had the opportunity to test out the new Artisan Hard Crust Bread Maker from @Panasonic_Au and I'm in love 😍 I used to always be sadly disappointed when I bought a bakery Sourdough and it had a soft crust… because #HardCrustIsAMust But now I get a crusty loaf everytime! 🥳 . Pumpkin is one of my favourite vegetables and one cup of pumpkin, as in this loaf, has 245% of the daily vitamin A intake, plus it has a good dose of vitamin C. You'll be adding some amazing nutrition and flavour to your bread loaf 🎃 You can enjoy your Crusty pumpkin bread toasted with butter, plain or a variety of other toppings. My favourite topping is Vegemite & Avocado! 🥑 You could also add some extra spices into the dough mix for added flavour! Ingredients 🔹2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast 🔹4 cups bread flour 🔹2 tablespoons sugar 🔹1 1/4 teaspoons salt 🔹1 cup mashed pumpkin (or canned pumpkin puree) 🔹2 tablespoons olive oil 🔹1 1/2 cups sourdough starter 🔹1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk 🔹 1/2 pepitas (optional) 1. Add all of the ingredients into the bowl of your bread machine according to the manufacturers suggested order – the default for the Panasonic Bread Maker is the order listed above. 2. Use the Soft Raisin bread setting in menu 10 with a light crust – I used this one so I can add the pepitas after the dough is kneaded. 3. Let your machine do its thing and enjoy the deliciousness when it's ready 🥰 Let me know if you try it! I'd love to see your pictures 🍞🎃👌🏻 . . If you'd like to try the #Panasonic #BreadMaker for yourself I've included the link in my bio: https://bit.ly/2YM10Ls . . . . . #sourdough #pumpkin #recipe #ad #PanasonicKitchen #KitchenEssentials #BreadLover #KitchenInspiration #HomeMadeFood #FreshBaking #FreshBread #carbs #healthysnacks #healthyrecipe #homemade #nourish #vegetables #avocado #avocadoaddict #bread
