1 cup of flour weighs about 145 grams

240/145 =1,65
so you need 1,65 cups....
so it's one cup and 2/3 of cup....

it's cooking, it's not laboratory work..... it doesn't need to be that exact amount...... nothing will happend....

### Basic instructions to make bread in B48M

• 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
• 2-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
• 3 tablespoons sugar
• 1 tablespoon salt
• 2 tablespoons canola oil
• 6-1/4 to 6-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
Directions In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, salt, oil and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 8-10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide dough in half. Shape each into a loaf. Place in two greased 9x5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30-45 minutes. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and bread sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).

### I baked a bread and now its uncooked how do i set the timer for more time to bake ONLY please help me quickly

There will be no need to extend the baking time on your uncooked loaf for if the loaf is uncooked as you say cooking it longer won't make things any better. I suspect you need a bit of tutoring regarding the fine art of using a bread machine.

Here is the assistance I offer:

White Flour: When using white flour select nothing less than unbleached white flour containing 12 to 16% protein (or 3 to 4 % per ¼ cup serving). Storage: Flour absorbs ambient humidity hindering it from blending with liquid ingredients during the initial kneading phase so always be certain to store your flour in a burped & sealed freezer bag.

Yeast: Use active dry yeast for all your standard-rise bread recipes and rapid-rise dry yeast for all your fast-bake bread recipes. Fast-Bake aka Ultra-Bake aka Rapid-Bake aka Express-Bake is an option available on select models. 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 active dry yeast contains 2-1/4 teaspoons.

Baking Surface Prep: Spray, not wipe or smear, the inside of your loaf pan generously with cooking oil before adding the ingredients.

Water: Use only drinking or filtered water, never tap, boiled or distilled.

Ingredient Temperatures: All ingredients should be at room temperature before pressing Start. Specifically 70 to 80 degrees F, 21 to 87 degrees C. Add liquids, oils, salts, sugars and seasonings first, next the flour, and last the yeast.

Delayed Start: Flour floats on the surface of the water until the initial kneading phase begins. That is why many breadmakers have a programmable start-delay timer. You can add the ingredients tonight and wake up in the morning to the aroma of fresh-baked bread.

Shelf Life: Refrigeration and/or freezing finished loaves is not recommended. For best results store them in a breadbox. Tip: Adding 1-2 tsps of lemon juice to any bread or dough recipe will double the shelf life of your bread.

Measuring: Water MUST be measured using a clear liquid measuring cup. Dry ingredients MUST be measured using standard measuring cups. All measurements, either spoons or cups, MUST be leveled.

Slicing The Loaf: Electric carving knives work best, especially when using a slicing guide. Be certain to wait until the loaf is cool to the touch before slicing.

Ingredient Information
• Flour– Use flour that is marked “bread flour” or “better for bread”. (Thesewill usually be labeled as having more gluten than regular flour.)
• Dry Skim Milk – This enhances the flavor and adds to the nutrition of the bread.
• Butter – Butter adds a rich flavor to the bread and makes it soft.
• DryYeast – Yeast is necessary for causing the dough to rise. Select readyto use yeast which needs no preliminary fermentation. Use only activedry yeast. Don’t use 50% faster dry yeast.
• Sugar – Sugar speeds up the dough rising process, adds flavor, and makes the bread soft and the crust brown.
• Salt – Salt controls the activity of the yeast and makes the dough firm.
• Water– Gluten is formed when flour is mixed with water. This allows thedough to rise by retaining air. The amount of water and its temperatureare very important. Usually, the water temperature should be between 68F/20 C and 77 F/25 C. When the room temperature is over 82 F/ 26C, usecold water (about 41 F/5 C). When the room temperature is under 50 F/10C, use lukewarm water (about 100 F/38 C).
