Welcome to FixYa, if you appreciate our solution, please rate our services.

Breadmakers usually don't have as many crust settings as this one does. Darker crust settings usually equate to dryer bread because the bread bakes longer. The longer the bread bakes, the more moisture is removed. Accordingly, if you've tried this many recipes with dry texture, try progressively lighter crust settings until you get the moisture you desire. As for me, I rarely bake my bread in the machine (I don't like the hole in the bottom of the loaf). I do, however, appreciate the dough setting which does all the hard work, and I just bake it in the pan. I think the results are better and I get a better shaped loaf.

If this information has been helpful, don't forget to give me an appropriate rating. Thanks again and good baking!

I have a sunbeam bake house bm001 I just after a white bread recipe like how much flour water yeast please


I suggest you Google bread machine recipes. You will find plenty of suggestions there.

There are many different recipes for ordinary white bread, some producing a denser or a lighter loaf, various moisture contents and shelf life.
Take your pick...

Every time I make a loaf of bread it overflows the pan and pushes the lid up. I have followed the recipe in the book that came with the machine. What am i doing wrong?


You're using a fast-acting type of yeast instead of the standard active dry yeast. It's a very common mistake made even more common by the erroneous bread machine recipe writers.

Here are the rules concerning bread machines and the yeasts they love the most:

Use standard active dry yeast for all your standard-rise bread recipes.

For the fast-bake white bread recipes use only fast-acting dry yeast.

Fast-bake type mode selections are available on most newer models and the custom recipes provided in their instruction manuals are the only ones you should use. You should never experiment with recipe ingredients and their portions when using the fast-bake mode on any breadmaker.

P.S. 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 standard active dry yeast contains 2-1/4 teaspoons.

Hope this helps.

I am using the old recipe from my 20 year old Black and decker book, in my new new B & D bread maker and it falls flat on top? In the old machine it rises beautifully and stays there, why? new bread...


You may find that one machine (the old one) stipulates Active Dry Yeast and the other one (new) stipulates Rapid Rise Bread Machine Yeast. What are the main differences from your old recipe and a similar recipe in your new recipe?

Recipe book blatantly wrong


I've found that the recipe books that come with most appliances, aren't very accurate. They don't accomodate different altitudes or even different countries. I hate trying to convert European recipes to American. European recipes list their dry ingredients by weight, not by volume. I had to find a recipe converting website to change a lot of those that sounded good.

Heavy dry wheat bread


You can try replacing some of the heavier wheat flour with some lighter sifted bread flour. (You'll need to sift the wheat flour too.) I use Splenda when I can to try to keep the calories and carbs down, but a small amount of molassas can help sweeten too. Try experimenting with different amounts until you get one you like. You might try using fruit juice for liquid; it can sweeten while mixing in the flours. Good Luck and have fun eating your experiments.

Half sized dish shaped wholemeal bread


Hi
I had a similar problem in making sourdough bread and noted on some websites the importance of correct salt and surgar quantities for rising. I increased my quantities to correct the problem. Of course the recipe was different but it may help.
