    The thing that puts me off bread machines is the look of the finished product. It always looks the same - unattractive. Appreciate it can taste OK though.

    I do use mine for dough making but only about 40℅ of the time. After the dough cycle I let it rise for about 8 hours before baking as I use real baker's yeast and not the fast yeasts baking machines need.

    I use a Panasonic too.

    Luxury porridge



    1/3 cup of pinhead cooked in 1 cup water. Pinch of salt once boiling starts. 1 min in, add a sprinkle of jumbo oats. Once nearly cooked add a level tsp of brown sugar and some fruit juice. Then a little cream at end(double). Serve with fruit, cream and brown sugar on top. Astonishing

    Here's a bomb-proof method to get a juicy, flavoursome chicken every time, it is well worth spending a few quid on a digital meat probe to take the guesswork out of doneness:

    1. Prepare your rub, there's loads of recipes online to choose from, but to keep it simple: 3x heaped tablespoons of peppercorns, grind them up in a pestle & mortar, and add in 2x heaped tablespoons of sea salt, grind up into a grey powder. You might need more with a bigger bird e.g. 4x pepper 3x salt, don't wimp out on the amount used.

    2. Prepare your bird, quality matters, and I find the 5-ish free range chickens from ALDI are great. Pat it dry with kitchen paper, inside goes a peeled onion, halved or quartered, 3x squashed garlic cloves, and a fistful of 'savouries' such as rosemary and thyme. Get it all in the cavity. Then sprinkle your bird all over with the rub, patting it in and rubbing into the creases around the leg and wing joints. Rub some extra virgin olive oil into your hands and start patting the bird all over until you have a nice thin coating.

    3. Prepare your oven. Get a decent roasting tray in making sure that you've got some clearance for the chicken, bring the oven up to gas mark 7.

    4. Put your bird in upside down. This is critical because thighs take longer to cook than the breast, hence why people usually end up with dry breast meat when it should be juicy. Leave upside down for half an hour at gas mark 7.

    5. Turn your bird over and lower the temp to gas mark 6, when the breast reaches 70 deg c, it's ready to be taken out. Usually you'd check the thigh meat, but it'll be done if you've followed the above steps, so check the breast instead. If you like, do a butter baste in the last half hour, I find that this isn't necessary due to the upside down cooking dropping juices and fats into the breast & skin.

    6. Rest your bird for at least 15 minutes, upside down with a loosely wrapped 'tinfoil tent', don't wrap tightly as it'll continue to cook the bird for too long. Upside down resting drops the juices back through the breast again.

    7. Use the juices from the tray (deglazed with a splash of white wine) and the juices from your rested bird to add into your gravy. Enjoy.

    Cooking times will be shorter than what the packet says (maybe half an hour less), or by the usual methods, due to the upside down blast at gas mark 7, so again, invest in a digital meat probe for fuss-free roasting.

    Nice, I like the idea of using different oats, am also a sucker for cream & brown sugar, will give this a go.

    Pineapple is one of the best to serve with, Fresh or tinned. It cuts into the oatyness. Yes it used to be called farmers porridge way back coz they had plenty cream etc. Mix of oats improves texture with the prodominance for pinhead as it doesnt turn to mush.
