Question about Black & Decker Bread Machine

1 Answer

Dough not rising

I am using a Black and Decker model B2200. I have only used the machine about 5 times as I can't seem to get consistent rising. I am using a very good bread machine recipe book, follow the recipes very carefully with fresh ingredients. So far I have been able to get 2 loaves to rise properly. It's almost as if there isn't enough heat during the rising cycle. I have used a Black and Decker bead machine in the past with very good results (and without as much fussing) so I am wondering if there is a problem with the machine.
Thanks for your help

Hi,
Are you using yeast that has not past it's expiry date? Using bread machine yeast that has not past it's expiry date will give you better results. I switched to the bread machine yeast and had much better results. Also make sure the ingredients are for the right size loaf. The ones that come with your breadmaker are made specificaly for your machine. Make sure you are choosing recipes that are in the same quantities for the bread cycle you are choosing. I hope this helps. I have included the link to the manual for your machine in case you don't have one.

Carol.

We haven't used our Black & Decker B2200 breadmaker for a few years. When we did, liquid and uncooked flour were left at the end of the cooking process. Could this be due to lack of use? If


When your machine started kneading did you notice if the ingredients were actually mixing? Sometimes the drive belts on bread machine break and there is no mixing (the paddle doesn't spin around)

White bread not rising


A couple of ideas. Firstly get fresh yeast, I use active dry yeast from the bulk barn, it is way cheaper than "breadmaker yeast" and I use a bit more. When I want more rise to my bread, I add an egg, which works wonders.

The Use and Care Manual for your Black & Decker B2250 All-In-One Automatic Breadmaker can be dowloaded in PDF from the following link:

Follow a recipe similar to that for Dinner Rolls on Page 19 where you would use the Dough Setting to allow the dough to be removed for shaping and baking in your regular oven.

I have not had any luck with the machine since I bought it! For one thing, the "recipe" booklet does not include basic white bread! I have tried a couple of the recipes and the bread is...


Here is a website for all the recipes you could want:

From the description of your problem it sounds as if your yeast is weak or you are not using enough or there was not enough sugar to feed the yeast. Here is another site with recipes but also offers a tip chart that you may find useful:

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.

I have a brand new black and decker bread maker - used it four times....but each time the bread is very heavy, not light. I measure ingredients excactly as your recipe calls for. What is the problem Jean...


There are many ways to adjust the weight of your bread. Try any (or all) of the following:
1) a little less salt.
2) a little more water
3) a little less flour
4) add 1 or 2 tablespoons of wheat glutten
5) use the dough setting and let bread rise in bread pans for a good long time (e.g. 1.5 or 2 hours)
6) 'better for bread' yeast - stored in the refrigerator

Bread Machine B2300


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.
