Way to high of loaf

I am following the recipe in the booklet given with the machine....I have cut the yeast back twice now and still have dough stuck all over the window. Sure makes a mess and NOT a very good experience if it takes half an hour to clean the thing and the loaf looks horrible. This is not my first bread machine but the recipes are pretty few in the booklet. Can this machine just be returned?

Cut the water down to 1 2/3 cups and the flour to 5 cups
Everything else remains the same and it should work out OK

Sounds like you may need to use a smaller quantity of all of the ingredients, or exchange for a machine that makes a large loaf. Well done, most people seem to have problems getting the loaf to rise enough!

Are there more recipes for my Crofton bread maker. I'm afraid that I haven't had a lot of good success with it recently. I have used Wrights complete bread mixes, they always dip in the middle


Hello, Julz -

Instead of looking for more recipes for your Crofton bread maker, or any other bread maker, I looked for information as to why the bread made with a bread maker would collapse on top.

The answers I found on this online baking formum:
http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/9725/bread-machine-loaf-collapse-when-baking-starts
may prove instructive.

To summarize, some of the causes and remedies for bread maker bread collapsing on top:
- You may reside at a high altitude and have not adjusted the recipe so that it does not over-proof [over-rise]. Cut down on the yeast, sugar, and salt.
- Even if you are not at a high altitude, try a recipe with reduced amounts of yeast, sugar, and salt (try reducing the amounts by 1/4 to 1/3)
- Use the dough mix cycle; Then turn the machine off and let the dough rise a little less than the recipe calls for; When you see the dough has risen turn the machine on to bake.
- If your bread maker allows,.reduce the amount of time between rise and bake

If you want additional bread maker recipes, you will find more here:
http://allrecipes.com/recipes/338/bread/bread-machine/

I did find a PDF document (Adobe Reader software - free) for a model of a Crofton Breadmaker, model MD 8505. In case you do not have a manual for your machine. The manual I found has information on how to make adjustments for altitude (page 22) and other adjustments to make (pages 23 - 24), including what may cause the loaf to fall while baking. This is the link to the manual:

Best wishes.

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:

I have the same model - here is one of the recipes in the booklet. I can send more if needed - just let me know. Also, the recipes on the back of bread flour bags work well with this model.

Traditional White Bread
1.5 pound loaf

1 cup water
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons dry milk
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons dry yeast

Measure and add liquid ingredients to bread pan.

Measure and add dry ingredients (EXCEPT YEAST) to bread pan.

Use finger to form a well in the flour to pour the yeast. Measure yeast and carefully pour it into the well - keep yeast away from liquid!

Snap pan into breadmaker and close lid.

Press "Select" button to choose Basic setting.

Press "Crust Color" button to choose crust.

Press "Start/Stop" button.

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,
Evelyn

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.

Chefmate bakery oven model cm 725


Since practically all bread machines work the same simple way, you don't need the manual if you read the excellent instructions at the following website. The following website tells you how to operate a bread machine, even if you don't have the manual. It also includes great recipes (and you can easily find many more recipes online). Using the following website, I was EASILY able to figure out how to use my Chefmate 725k bread machine even though I didn't have a manual.
http://hillbillyhousewife.com/breadmachinemanual.htm

By the way, the Chefmate 725k holds 16 cups of water which means that it should be able to make a 2.5 lb loaf of bread (though I've never tried to make a loaf that big). If I'm making one loaf of bread, baked in the machine, I'll generally make a 1.5lb loaf. But more often than not, I just use the bread machine to knead and raise 2 lbs of dough. Then I remove the dough (with rubber spatula) cut it into two equal parts, and then put the two pieces of dough into separate 5" x 8" x 2.5" bread pans (if I want a traditional shaped rectangular loaf of bread) or on a cookie sheets in round or oval shapes. I don't really care for the shape & style of bread that is baked in a bread machines.

Black & Decker B2250 - Recipies


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

Recipes Are wrong in instruction booklet


I had a similar problem when I switched machines. It seems that most recipes will work in same size machines (1 or 1.5 lb loaf size). My issue was that my old machine had to have liquids in first and then dry ingredients (new machine is the opposite). I ruined several loaves before I figured out the issue. I would have never imagined the order of ingredients would make a big difference.
Good luck!

Bread too high


The one thing that rises bread is yeast. You have some super duper yeast if the breadmaker suggests a certain amount and you keep getting the same results. You can either reduce the rise time -- or the amount of yeast -- or both.
