    If yeast is slow it could be old unless you store it in frig. I freeze mine but let it warm to room temp before using. also try proofing yeast to get it started before putting it in the mix. Mix yeast with 1/4 or 1/3 cup warm water one teaspoon++ sugar. I have a similar problem but mine is warm cycle is too hot killing yeast

Make sure you are following the recipe very carefully. You have to have the proper type of four, and yeast. Make sure you are using flour that is called bread flour. This type of flour has higher glutent than cake flour. Cake flour would make a heavier bread.

As for the yeast, there is a special yeast for bread machines. Regular yeast would be too slow acting for most bread machines.

The dough will not raise no matter how fresh the yeast


Check the type of flour you are using. In the US, if you are using white flour you need to select the type that is labelled "for bread". Also, do not open the lid while the bread is supposed to be rising or you will make it fall. It needs to have a steady temperature while it is rising. Also, make sure that the measured quantities are quite precise. The heavier the ingredients the harder it is to make the dough rise. Adding a little extra water can help.

If the machine is heating the element is working.

If it looks like bread dough then the paddle is mixing.

It's more than likely your ingredients. Old flour, old yeast, not enough flour, not enough yeast, water too hot or cold.

Check each ingredient to the recip as you put it in. Put them in in the order suggested by the recipe. The yeast should go in last and shouldn't have contact with the water until mixing starts.

What is the sequence for placing the bread ingredients in the baking container of the bread machine.


How To Make Bread (without a bread machine)
Step 1 What you'll need
You will need: Yeast - 2 Tbsp Hot-ish* water - 2 cups Bread flour - 5 cups total, 2 for the sponge and 3 for later. (NOT regular flour) Sugar - 2 Tbsp. Salt - 2 tsp. Oil - 2 Tbsp. 3 loaf pans Quick-read thermometer Oven pre-heated to 375 *Hot-ish means betw…
Step 2. Make the sponge
This recipe uses what I call a "sponge." The sponge will activate the yeast and get things started; getting the yeast warm, happy, and ready to go Start by mixing the hot water and the flour. Then, add 2 Tbsp. sugar, 2 Tbsp. oil, 2 Tbsp. yeast, and 2 tsp. salt. Let this sit for about 8 or 10 m…Step 3. Add some flour and knead it
Now you need to add about 3 more cups of flour. I added a little less this time, it really depends on the humidity and how exact your measurements were in the sponge step. Once it gets too tough to stir, flip it onto a clean floured surface. Now, knead away, adding flour as you do so. Knead th…Step 4. Let it rise...
let the dough rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes to an hour. the dough should be about doubled in size by the time it's finished.
Step 5. Into the pans
Punch the dough down (Yes, punch it. Beat the heck out of it. Just don't make a mess), then divide it into 3 parts. Spray the pans and put the dough in. Let it rise again in the pans (covered) util it looks like the second picture.
Step 6. Into the oven
Preheat your oven to 375 F and put the loaves in. Bake them for about 25 minutes. Your quick read thermometer should read between 180 and 190 degrees. Pull the loaves out and place them on their sides on a rack, after a few seconds slide them out of the pans and onto the rack. Let them cool.Step 7 Eat!
Eat it! Share it! etc.! You can do a lot with this recipe... ...You can add nuts, roll it out and add cinnamon and raisins for cinnamon-swirl bread, add your favorite spices, etc. Add sweet potatoes, chunks of cheese, pieces of ham, or whatever suites you.

Also, here can find few recipes about making bread recipes

Hope this helped.

My experience with the machine is that it kneads perfectly, but you have to use ACTIVE DRY YEAST instead of another kind of yeast, and you have to throw the ingredients into the pan in order - do not mix the ingredients at all - just pour them in, and let the machine do the mixing. Except for substituting between BREAD FLOUR and WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR, do not substitute any other ingredients. This one is very picky about the type of ingredients that you use - not for the innovator :-)

Control Panel: (when pressing a controlbutton, be sure to hold it down until you hear a “Beeping” soundindicating contact has been made.
  • Display: Shows the time remaining until a mode is completed. Can also display timer setting or mode selected.
  • Select button: Push to select mode: Cycles through modes in following order:

    If used after a mode is started, it will stop it.
  • Timer set buttons: Up arrow: advances timer setting 10 min each time pressed.
    Down arrow: sets timer setting back 10 min each time pressed.
Ingredient Information
  • Flour– Use flour that is marked “bread flour” or “better for bread”. (Thesewill usually be labeled as having more gluten than regular flour.)
  • Dry Skim Milk – This enhances the flavor and adds to the nutrition of the bread.
  • Butter – Butter adds a rich flavor to the bread and makes it soft.
  • DryYeast – Yeast is necessary for causing the dough to rise. Select readyto use yeast which needs no preliminary fermentation. Use only activedry yeast. Don’t use 50% faster dry yeast.
  • Sugar – Sugar speeds up the dough rising process, adds flavor, and makes the bread soft and the crust brown.
  • Salt – Salt controls the activity of the yeast and makes the dough firm.
  • Water– Gluten is formed when flour is mixed with water. This allows thedough to rise by retaining air. The amount of water and its temperatureare very important. Usually, the water temperature should be between 68F/20 C and 77 F/25 C. When the room temperature is over 82 F/ 26C, usecold water (about 41 F/5 C). When the room temperature is under 50 F/10C, use lukewarm water (about 100 F/38 C).

My breadmaker model BBCC-V20 completes the entire cycle, however the dough does not rise at all! I've tried with brand new ingredients eggs bread flour and yeast. Tried 3 times - no success at all.


Hi ravimalini,

Something is stopping the yeast from acting (fermentation creates to CO2 bubbles that cause the bread to rise). Was the new yeast you used all from the same batch? (sometimes they have bad days at the yeast factory, too). Can you watch when it runs through the cycle, and check for conditions _before_ the dough is supposed to rise? If it heats up much too quickly/soon, the heat can kill the yeast before it get to do it's job.

Rising cycle


Have you 'proofed' your yeast? The rise temperature is not very much above room temp, particularly in the summer months. I would expect the bread to rise at least 3/4 as much without any rise time heating.

Dense, heavy loaves


Hi nanearl,

(A personal aside - my personal experience with home-baked bread is that it tends to be a heavier product - - but that may be because the recipe gets experimented with, and whole grain flours tend to be used rather than bakers flour.)

It sounds like something is stopping the yeast from acting (fermentation creates to CO2 bubbles that cause the bread to rise). Was the yeast you used all from the same batch? (sometimes they have bad days at the yeast factory, too). Can you watch when it runs through the cycle, and check for conditions _before_ the dough is supposed to rise? If it heats up much too quickly/soon, the heat can kill the yeast before it get to do it's job.

Need bread to be lighter, more fluffy


To make it light and fluffy you need to add more water or milk so that the dough is sticky, also add a little more yeast. You will have to experiment to get the right quantitys but as a rule if the recpie adds 2 tsp of yeast i add 1 more, with the water if it aske for 10ml extra for every 100gm of flour.
