You may be experiencing hotter temps due to youre location, if youre on elevated ground thats significantly higher than sea level, your temps will be off from the knob setting. There really isnt any adjustment you can do to your knob.

Why does my bread continually fall in baking cycle


i use reg yeast ~~ my machine doesnt rise long enough so i use it just to mix the ingredients and do the 1st rise --i take it out before the final rise and raise it in a bread pan myself and bake it to 195 degrees
ALL baked goods should be baked to a specific internal temp!!!!!!!
Checking the internal temperature of bread is a foolproof way to tell if it is fully baked. Insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the loaf and the internal temperature should be 190 to 200 degrees~~cakes about 210

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.

Why do cakes sometimes collapse while baking?


helllo dis.... There are many things that can cause cakes to fall in the middle.... Jumping, etc., around the baking area is unlikely to be a problem except with very delicate sponge or angel food cakes. More likely, cakes fall when the crust appears to be done, but the batter is not baked through the middle. An uneven baking temperature is a frequent culprit; check the temperature of your oven with a separate baking thermometer, and be certain that your oven holds a steady heat through the entire baking period. Some older ovens preheat properly, then cycle off and drop the temperature after 15 or 20 minutes, which causes the uncooked portion of the cake to fall.

Less likely but possible problems could be inaccurate proportions of baking powder or baking soda if the cake is made from scratch. This could occur with cake mixes if sour milk or buttermilk is used instead of regular milk; the additional acid in sour milk requires additional baking soda to rise properly. Eggs that are not beaten properly, or perhaps beaten too much for the type of cake being made, might also cause problems. Joe

The dark pan absorbs heat more readily, you may have to experiment a little. Lower the temp 25 degrees (it may be up to 40), and put the rack in the middle, to attempt to keep the bottom from overbrowning.

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.

Amana Convection oven not controlling temp


I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda
