You're doing everything great with your ingredients. Listen to your machine or watch it. Stop it before the bread is in the rise cycle and restart it after the kneading cycle.Try running the knead cycle two times, then the rest of the baking cycle. If the bread is still too hard try using the kneading cycle three times. This process is trial and error, but I firmly believe this will solve your problem as it did mine.

My bread appears to be rising well with a nicely rounded top then somewhere early in the bake cycle the top collapses or falls. What would cause that?


This is probably caused by a large bubble forming in the dome. Try cutting back on the yeast by a half teaspoon. Bread maker recipes are a hit or miss situation.

I baked a bread and now its uncooked how do i set the timer for more time to bake ONLY please help me quickly


There will be no need to extend the baking time on your uncooked loaf for if the loaf is uncooked as you say cooking it longer won't make things any better. I suspect you need a bit of tutoring regarding the fine art of using a bread machine.

Here is the assistance I offer:

White Flour: When using white flour select nothing less than unbleached white flour containing 12 to 16% protein (or 3 to 4 % per ¼ cup serving). Storage: Flour absorbs ambient humidity hindering it from blending with liquid ingredients during the initial kneading phase so always be certain to store your flour in a burped & sealed freezer bag.


Yeast: Use active dry yeast for all your standard-rise bread recipes and rapid-rise dry yeast for all your fast-bake bread recipes. Fast-Bake aka Ultra-Bake aka Rapid-Bake aka Express-Bake is an option available on select models. Always refrigerate your yeast with a close eye on the expiration date. When using grocery-bought bread mixes always substitute the yeast packet provided with fresh active dry yeast. Tip: A packet (or "sachet") of active dry yeast contains 2-1/4 teaspoons.


Baking Surface Prep: Spray, not wipe or smear, the inside of your loaf pan generously with cooking oil before adding the ingredients.


Water: Use only drinking or filtered water, never tap, boiled or distilled.


Ingredient Temperatures: All ingredients should be at room temperature before pressing Start. Specifically 70 to 80 degrees F, 21 to 87 degrees C. Add liquids, oils, salts, sugars and seasonings first, next the flour, and last the yeast.


Delayed Start: Flour floats on the surface of the water until the initial kneading phase begins. That is why many breadmakers have a programmable start-delay timer. You can add the ingredients tonight and wake up in the morning to the aroma of fresh-baked bread.


Shelf Life: Refrigeration and/or freezing finished loaves is not recommended. For best results store them in a breadbox. Tip: Adding 1-2 tsps of lemon juice to any bread or dough recipe will double the shelf life of your bread.


Measuring: Water MUST be measured using a clear liquid measuring cup. Dry ingredients MUST be measured using standard measuring cups. All measurements, either spoons or cups, MUST be leveled.


Slicing The Loaf: Electric carving knives work best, especially when using a slicing guide. Be certain to wait until the loaf is cool to the touch before slicing.

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.

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.

Collapsed bread


Try using more white flour with the whole wheat flour. Maybe increase the yeast and/or sugar.

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.
