I am using the old recipe from my 20 year old Black and decker book, in my new new B & D bread maker and it falls flat on top? In the old machine it rises beautifully and stays there, why? new bread...


You may find that one machine (the old one) stipulates Active Dry Yeast and the other one (new) stipulates Rapid Rise Bread Machine Yeast. What are the main differences from your old recipe and a similar recipe in your new recipe?

My bread maker kneads twice just fine, and it bakes just fine, but the bread doesn't rise very high. All of my ingredients are fresh. I have tried several different recipes and it still doesn't rise in...


That is a difficult problem. One thing you might try to get a better rise in your machine is to cut the salt in your recipe by one half. It's healthier that way too. Please let me know the result.

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 ....

With the 5838 the bread looks good till the bake cycle as than the bread falls about halh an inch


Accurate measured ingredients, fresh and best ingredients (especially yeast and flour), warm liquid (110 degrees), use peanut oil instead of butter (raises well and stays fresh longer), pkg. Rapid Rise yeast is same as bottled bread machine yeast and is always fresher (1 pkg equals 2 1/4 tsp.so use jarred yeast for odd amounts, ie. 5 tsp=2 pkgs + 1/2 tsp from jar). Wheat bread will rise good and drop a little but stays good for slicing. Oster's pan is too large so I cut loaf in half length ways for smaller and easy to slice pieces.

Frequently the bread does not rise correctly when doing "fast" mode.Should the unit be heating during the rise cycle?


Bread not rising correctly is complicated since there are so many factors involved more than just proofing temperature. You should hear a short click once in a while as it cycles the heater on for just a second at a time. You won't notice any considerable heat since too much heat will kill the yeast. Bread not rising correctly is normally due to the gluten not being developed in the bread or the flour was poor quality without much gluten to begin with. You can try adding some "Vital Wheat Gluten" to each batch to help and at the same time adjusting the yeast up by a half teaspoon at a time. Also keep in mind that the salt you add to the dough will ****** the yeast. Try and limit the salt to a teaspoon per loaf. Too little salt and the taste of the bread will go bland on you. Another aid to rising is to add some Diastatic Malt Powder to assit in the rise. And lastly, remember that you whole wheat flour will never rise as high as white flour.

Dough wont rise . everything else works


We perserved for 6 months and found that the drive shaft was worn out. The shaft wobbled very slightly. We baked several windowless buildings (bricks) before we found this out and bought a new shaft for under NZ$80. Hope this helps.

The bread only rises about half way.


After its mixed the ingredients and before it cooks, it should sit for a while to allow the mix to rise. Check that the heater is on in this period, otherwise, if its cold, it wont rise

Bread won't rise


We have owned a Panasonic bread maker for ten years and gets used twice a week to make bread using "spelt " flour.About three years ago the bread maker was producing flat loaves,and was very heavy.We contacted bread making company called "Simply No Knead"and asked for there advise,as we were following the same recipe and method for around six years. They suggested that we add a little more water,and this would fix the problem.We tried this and the bread still failed to rise,so we rang them again .This time they said that we need a new bearing in the bread maker and that would fix it.We did this at a cost of $40 and still no good.This happened over a period of several months.We suggested to them that there must be something wrong with the flour,which they denied.After checking the labels on the packaging we noticed that they were using flour from another country [ I think it was Hungary ],because they had run out of suppies from Australian wheat produces.
The flour was far to old,and bread won't rise if the flour is to old. As soon as they started using Australian produced flour again the bread improved dramatically.

Hope this is helpful to you

Wheat bread problems


I had similar problems until I tried the recipe listed on the King Arthur Flour web site. I discovered using less flour is always the better option and they say to cook on the white setting even tho it is a wheat flour recipe. I have had good luck with the King Arthur white wheat flour.
