This is the second rise period. it is ok, and at this time if you like, you can gently move the dough aside, and remove the paddles. Just remember to put a little oil on the exposed stem. This way, you can have bread without the huge holes from the paddles.

The bread will rise in some spots but not the entire loaf. The loaf ends up lopsided. It's like it's not mixing properly.


Hi Darlene

I have the same machine and I wonder if your kneading parts are locked into place...i remember using it one time and the kneeding blades were not secured and the same thing happened.

Good luck..

Darlene S.

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.

Model No. B2300 - the padels stay in the bread after it is finished baking- is there any way to prevent this? thanks - Chris


Hi Chris,
You can take the paddle out of the machine after the final kneading cycle and before the final rise cycle. Take the whole pan out of the machine to do this to be safe, or use a pause button if you have one. Hank

Keeading blades


I had the same problem. I find the loaves to be a much better size if I just use program setting 8 - Dough then put the dough in 2 regular bread pans or on cookie sheets (bagetts), let them have a second rising and finish them in the convection oven at 350 F for 21 minutes.

TR440 Breadman won't begin kneading once "start" button is pushed


Hi Mindy.......it takes 30 minutes to PREHEAT this silly machine for wheat bread. I thought I did something wrong, too........I stopped it twice after it preheated for about 15 minutes. I did not want to waste anything so I let it stay in the machine.....I just went to check the machine and it started after 30 minutes of preheating.

I wish they would mention this in the book!!!

Kneading blade cooks into the loaf


Hi Jessica,

As I read the manual, under the Care & Cleaning section,

"2. If the kneading blades remain in the bread pan, grip the kneading blade and
pull straight up to remove......"

Based on the diagrams and instructions, I don't think you're supposed to pull the blades before baking...why do you want them out? Cosmetics?

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon

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).
