Most problems of this type are related to the amount of liquid added. Carefully measure. If using other liquids such as honey, be sure to adjust the amount of liquid accordingly.

When I make banana nut bread, it always falls in the middle, do I need more flour or baking time?


If you are making it in a bread maker, it's the blades that do that. Better off just mixing the ingredients then putting it in a pan in your oven.

try using 1 tablespoon less liquid on your next loaf. If it still collapses on the next one use 2 tablespoons less liquid. One of those should work.

Hotmail.comWhy does my bread sink in the middle evey time I make it? and it seems to be hard as a rock.


Are you using Strong bread flour? You may be using a poor quality flour. All pyrpose flour is not suitable for bread.
Too much liquid or yeast will also cause bread to sink

Bread top "sinks" when in the final baking process


Suggest that you check the amount of yeast. If there is too much the top may sink.

Sink in the end of the baking process


Hi,

Most bread machine manuals include a wealth of information about how to use the models so that they work at their best and produce great loaves of bread. Many manuals also have a troubleshooting section near the end. Before you contact customer service or attempt to take apart your machine, read the manual completely and try restoring your machine to its original settings, testing it again, and finally trying the repair ideas offered in the troubleshooting section.

If you've misplaced your manual, you may be able to find a down loadable copy on the manufacturer's website.

If the problems you're having relate to your finished loaves of bread rather than to your bread machine itself, you might be able to solve them by experimenting with the machine's settings or the ingredients in your bread. For example, expired yeast could result in a loaf that doesn't rise, and especially warm weather could mean a loaf that will sink in the middle.

Play around with ingredient amounts and types to see if your loaves improve when you use certain combination or settings. You can also experiment with the machine itself, disassembling its parts and putting it together again after you attempt to locate the problem.

If your bread machine is still under warranty, customer service representatives from the manufacturing company should be able to offer you online or telephone assistance. If you're not able to resolve the issue over the phone, you may be able to send your machine back to the manufacturer for free or low-cost repairs.


Even if you don't have a warranty for your machine, you can still contact the manufacturer for troubleshooting assistance and repairs, although you may have to pay a fee. You can also search for appliance-repair centers in your area and check to see if any of them handle bread machines.

Have a nice day.

Loaf falls in the middle and outside is hard


Falling in middle is usually due to innacurate measuring of liquids. Try again using the instruction manual's recipe and very carefully measuring. Be sure to adjust the liquid if you use honey or other liquid not called for in the recipe.

Bread Rises Beautifully - then sinks in middle during bake cycle


Sinking in the middle means that there was too much rising for the amount of structure in the bread.
Usual causes:
-too much yeast (reduce 1/2 tsp.)
-too much sugar (reduce 1/2 tsp.)
-not enough salt (increase 1/4 tsp.)
-too much water (reduce 1 tbsp)
Another possible remedy: use "best for bread" flour, it has more gluten, or add gluten separately, 1 tbsp.

Start with reducing amount of water.
