I have an 'All-In-One B1561 breadmaker which is producing small and hard loaves. Any recipe with a whole wheat flour is unedible, being so small, compact and hard. Is the breadmaker (about 8yrs old)...


If you use whole wheat flour without any bread flour (bread flour is marked on the bag) you will have small dense loaves unless you add wheat gluten. The product "vital wheat gluten" is for sale in most grocery stores in the baking aisle. If you don't want to add gluten then you will need to use at least 50% bread flour and 50% whole wheat flour to get a larger loaf. Those are the 2 choices to make large loaves using a lot of whole wheat flour.

Whole wheat set up not mixing right away...is that normal?


This is perfectly normal for the whole wheat setting. Because it is a heaver bread the flour has to soften a bit before it starts to kneed. I use this setting a lot with perfect results.

I just purchased my bread machine and was excited to use it so i tried to bake whole wheat bread... i followed all the instructions and exact ingredients but my bread turned out undone... the top was not...


Don't get discouraged. Most new users of bread machines make some mistakes in the beginning.
Some things to remember: Don't lift the lid and peak inside... you'll let heat out especially during baking....recommend rapid rise yeast not active dry....I use half the salt recipes call for especially with whole wheat. Recommend you try some recipes first with unbleached bread flour, basic white bread recipes so you'll get a good rise and get your confidence up and then try whole wheat.
Maybe some of these tips will help ....

B&D B2300 - when the bread finishes baking, I end up with it collapsed in at the top so I get a big crater in the finished product. I have been using part whole wheat, part white flour. Why is it...


Your machine is too warm while the dough rises. No adjustment possible. You can add a bit of Gluten to your bread or buy flour for bread making instead of general purpose flour. Most white flour has gluten reduced during processing.

Julie Childs book, "the way to cook" has a nice write up on gluten in European flour vs. the general purpose flour we commonly buy in the US.

I have a brand new black and decker bread maker - used it four times....but each time the bread is very heavy, not light. I measure ingredients excactly as your recipe calls for. What is the problem Jean...


There are many ways to adjust the weight of your bread. Try any (or all) of the following:
1) a little less salt.
2) a little more water
3) a little less flour
4) add 1 or 2 tablespoons of wheat glutten
5) use the dough setting and let bread rise in bread pans for a good long time (e.g. 1.5 or 2 hours)
6) 'better for bread' yeast - stored in the refrigerator

Can i return the b2300 to cnd tire store and buy the smaller one... this machine is not good . the bread sicks to the top all the time... It is a piece of junk


I solved the problem... I had to read the Black and Decker book again. But the machine is really to small for the 3 lb loaf. Many times I had to punch down the bread by hand so it would not stick to the top. And cutting down on the yeast is not the problem, as so many had said. Thank you, I am still not over happy with the BIG Machine.

Need recipe for 1 lb whole wheat loaf


I have a very healthy recipe. Makes two loaves so you will have to divide in two.

13 oz. water (warm)
3 3/4 cup stone ground whole wheat flour
1/2 cup steel cut oats
2 T oil
2 T dry milk
2 T vital wheat gluten
3 T honey
1 1/2 t salt
1 T active dry yeast

When machine beeps add if desired:

1/2 cup golden flax seeds
1/4 cup unroasted sunflour seeds or sesame seeds (or both)

Put into machine and go. I usually set it on dough cycle and put into pans for second rise 50min in a warm, draft free area. Preheat oven to 400 place bread in oven after second rise, reduce heat to 375 and bake 30-35 min.

You can find both flour and gluten with Bob's Redmill products

enjoy,
Evelyn
