Yes, but start with 1 tbsp of water first and see how the dough ball appears at the beginning of the 2nd knead. Make sure the dough isn't smearing on the bottom. If it is then you added to much water. If the dough is forming a smooth round ball shape with no smearing that is what you want.

SOURCE: Bread sticks to pan

May be that the coating on the pan is just wearing off. Had the same problem several years ago and it was just that the poor old machine was over used and the simplest solution was to buy a new pan. That machine went though 2 of them before it died its self.

SOURCE: TR440 Breadman won't begin kneading once "start" button is pushed

Hi Mindy.......it takes 30 minutes to PREHEAT this silly machine for wheat bread. I thought I did something wrong, too........I stopped it twice after it preheated for about 15 minutes. I did not want to waste anything so I let it stay in the machine.....I just went to check the machine and it started after 30 minutes of preheating.

I wish they would mention this in the book!!!

Panasonic SD-YD250 Bread Maker uneven bread


Usually this happens when the mixture is too dry. Flour contains varying amounts of moisture, thus water needed also changes. Follow User Manual to help solve the problem or add additional water one tablespoon at a time. The dough should be a little more tacky than conventional bread dough. This will allow the dough to flow out more evenly and be less dense. This is a very important step that many persons miss.

I have an 'All-In-One B1561 breadmaker which is producing small and hard loaves. Any recipe with a whole wheat flour is unedible, being so small, compact and hard. Is the breadmaker (about 8yrs old)...


If you use whole wheat flour without any bread flour (bread flour is marked on the bag) you will have small dense loaves unless you add wheat gluten. The product "vital wheat gluten" is for sale in most grocery stores in the baking aisle. If you don't want to add gluten then you will need to use at least 50% bread flour and 50% whole wheat flour to get a larger loaf. Those are the 2 choices to make large loaves using a lot of whole wheat flour.

The next time you bake bread use 1 tablespoon less liquid. If it still collapses then the 2nd time use one tablespoon less liquid and ONE MORE tablespoon of flour. That should do it!

Hi Dan B,

Sorry about your bread problems. It is depressing to me to find an unsatisfactory result after going through the whole baking rigamarole. I had a similar problem early on, but I live in the Denver area, so I was also dealing with the high altitude problems, too. I started using Vital Wheat Gluten in all my bread recipes, and it helped a lot. I use a tablespoon per cup of flour, but you may want to start with a half tablespoon. I also put the salt in with the liquid ingredients, because you're not supposed to let salt touch the yeast. I also make sure to use non-iodized salt, because the iodizing stuff does bad things to the yeast. The final thing I always do is to set the timer for 10 minutes after it starts the knead cycle, and then I open the lid and touch the dough to see if it is too wet (add flour by tablespoons) or too dry (add water by tablespoons), until it feels and looks right to me. You are probably already doing most of these things already, but I thought I'd mention them just in case. Anyway, hope one of these things helps. Happy Baking!

Need recipe for 1 lb whole wheat loaf


I have a very healthy recipe. Makes two loaves so you will have to divide in two.

13 oz. water (warm)
3 3/4 cup stone ground whole wheat flour
1/2 cup steel cut oats
2 T oil
2 T dry milk
2 T vital wheat gluten
3 T honey
1 1/2 t salt
1 T active dry yeast

When machine beeps add if desired:

1/2 cup golden flax seeds
1/4 cup unroasted sunflour seeds or sesame seeds (or both)

Put into machine and go. I usually set it on dough cycle and put into pans for second rise 50min in a warm, draft free area. Preheat oven to 400 place bread in oven after second rise, reduce heat to 375 and bake 30-35 min.

You can find both flour and gluten with Bob's Redmill products

enjoy,

Black and Decker Bread Maker B2250


Here's a good basic white bread recipe that works great with a BD2550 (and usually doesn't even **** the mixing blade into the bottom of the machine

1 cup warm (not hot) water
1/3 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 tablespoons butter/margarine
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon yeast

Heat the water and add the milk to it. Dissolve the sugar and salt into this mix and pour the liquid into the bottom of the bread maker bucket (make sure the mixing blade is already in). Melt and add the butter to this mix. Add the 4 cups of flour directly on top, but do not mix it in. The flour will float on top of the liquid. Make a small dimple in the top of the flour in the middle with your finger and add the yeast into that little crater (at no point while adding ingredients do you let the yeast touch the liquid). Set the bread maker for basic setting 1, light crust, 2lb loaf and let it do it's thing. 3 hours later, you'll have a nice loaf of white bread with good consistency and density, and it usually leaves the mixing blade in the bucket (rather than having to dig it out of the loaf after).

Hope this helps!

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.

Collapsed bread


Likely, your loaf is too wet.
This can happen with as little as 1 Tablespoon too much liquid. It's hard to describe "the look," but what I learned to do was to watch the bread during the initial mixing cycle (after the paddle begins to turn full circles). The dough should not stick to the side of the pan while mixing, and it should look elastic, but not shiny. If it looks shiny, there's too much liquid in relationship to flour. I add a tablespoon of flour at a time during the mixing cycle, until I get a good consistency.
There's nothing wrong with the taste of the sunken loaves. We usually just shrug and eat them anyway.
