HOW TO BAKE WALNUT AND APRICOT BREAD USING PANASONIC SD-P104 BREAD MAKER

Do you guys still remember on my previous blog post on attending Panasonic Bread Maker Workshop organised by OMY Blog? I was impressed by the functions and final bread texture bakes by the bread maker that I had ordered the bread maker from Panasonic. Due to Christmas festive season, I had waited till Jan 2015 for the stock to arrive. Finally the wait is over! I was so excited when I had finally received my Panasonic Bread Maker on the last week of Jan 2015. Been using the bread maker to bake loaf of breads for our weekday morning breakfast. So far, I have only tried baking bread loaf and can’t wait to experiment different type of breads or cake using the Panasonic SD-P104 Bread Maker.

After using the Panasonic Bread Maker myself, here are my reviews based on my own personal experience:

1. Ease of Operation

It is very easy to operate the Bread Maker. Just select the desired menu, any raisin to add in and the type of crust (light or medium). With a press of ‘Start ‘button, all job will be done by the Bread Maker!

2. Ease of Cleaning
You will only need to wash the bread pan and blade. The inner of the Bread Maker, you can just use kitchen towel to wipe it clean.

3. Get a load of bread in just 2 hours using ‘Rapid Mode’
No joke, I had tested and proven the ‘Rapid Mode’. You can really get freshly bake loaf of bread in just 2 hrs using the ‘Rapid Mode’. All I need to do is to prepare the ingredients and it had taken me less than 20 mins to get ready the ingredients.

However, I do hope that in future, Panasonic can design a Bread Maker with glass window such that users are able to see the baking process.

Really love the aroma of bread that fills the kitchen during the baking process.

    Hi, i just bought this model bread maker. I am very excited to bake the banana bread.

    I do not understand what you mean by beep sound. Can you explain at which stage?
    Why you don’t place the walnuts and apricot in the raisin pan?

    Hi Vanessa,

    After you have selected mode 2 and press the ‘Start’ button, kneading is performed. After which there will be a beep sound to prompt you to add in the nuts ingredient. Happy baking Vanessa!

    Cheers,

    I read somewhere that milk powder is very unhealthy, can i omit that in the recipe or replace it with fresh milk?

    Hi Rene,

    For the walnut and apricot bread, it does not becomes hard after cool down.The bread turn slightly harder after two days of storage. I guess is best to eat home bake bread fresh.
