White Honey Bread
Well I have to admit I was honestly impressed with this machine. The first thing I made in was this bread because I wanted to see how the dough cycle works. I’m a baker at heart and love making homemade bread every chance I get.
The Ninja® Intelli-Sense™ Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer™ is no ordinary product and I’ve never been a big fan of bread made in a food processor (other than pizza dough) but this machine changed my mind. First of all it is four different vessels on one smart base that automatically recognizes which vessel you are using. There are 12 Smart Programs that deliver optimal results with precisely calibrated patterns of pulsing and pausing combined with the ideal speed, power and torque for each attachment. You can create everything from dressings, breads to margaritas and even ice creams with one simple tap. We’ll talk more about this amazing machine when I share the recipe I created for Pork Tenderloin with Apple Cranberry Sage Butter and Zucchini Spiralized Noodles with a Garlic Butter Sauce. It’s perfect for holiday entertaining.
I find it easiest when using this machine to gather all of my ingredients together and then adding them to the vessel you’re using all at once.
I added the flour first and then the remaining ingredients.
Once everything is in the vessel and the lid locked correctly down you will see the red circle light up. (yes, I forgot to remove the plastic covering the display panel, the good thing is you can see all 12 setttings!) Press the red button and the options available for that vessel will light up or you can manually do your own setting. I wanted to see what this machine could do so I used the dough cycle. It’s like one minute! When it shut off I thought I was going to be doing about 5 minutes of kneading time but to my surprise in 30 seconds it looked like the picture below. Boy was I surprised.
I covered the dough with a kitchen towel and let it raise. It took about a hour and a few minutes to double.
I cut the dough in 2 pieces and shaped them into loaves or you could make one large loaf. These pans are 4 1/2 x 8 inches.
30 minutes later you are ready to slicing into these wonderfully textured loaves of bread.
I am really looking forward to trying some other bread recipes in this machine. One thing that stood out while the bread was mixing there was no stall of the motor or slow down at all. I was pretty impressed. This dough would also work really well for cinnamon rolls. I think you’d get about a dozen cinnamon rolls if you decide to make those. I’ll try them soon and let you know.
This Ninja® Intelli-Sense™ Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer™ is a real work horse in the kitchen. I can’t wait to use it again!
