Question about Breadman TR2200C Ultimate Bread Maker
I used hawaiian bread mix mulitiple times, tried different settings but just does not rise to 2lb and is very meally.
When I hear of bread not rising, I always suspect the yeast first.
You said you've used the hawaiian bread mix multiple times. From the same container? Or have you tried multiple different packages (hopefully from different production lots)?
Back in the day when my Mom was baking bread on a regular basis, she'd occasionally get a bad batch of yeast, and the bread would be the weight and consistency of fruitcake, but with somewhat less flavor. (We ate it anyway).
If your yeast is separate from the bread mix (don't know, you didn't specify), you need to first check the quality of your yeast. If the yeast is too old, or just bad, your bread won't rise.
To test the yeast, mix a sample in warm water (~105 deg. F) and add a little sugar. If the yeast is good, it should start forming bubbles. No bubbles, time to get new(er) yeast.
If your yeast checks-out, then you need to see if something in the machine's process is overheating the yeast too soon - - the yeast's fermentation process creates the carbon dioxide (CO2) bubbles that causes the bread to rise (sort of like inflating a balloon, if you like). If something is killing the yeast (e.g. too much heat too early in the process), it won't react and create the bubbles.
If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.
Good luck, and thanks in-advance for your rating,
