Bread won't rise

Made several loaves of basic white bread over the last few months since I bought the machine. None of them will produce a 2lb loaf. It usually won't even rise to the top of the bread pan. If I use a lot of yeast, it will rise but there is always a hole in the middle of the loaf that protrudes about half way through the loaf. I've tried different settings, different variations of the recipe and even different recipes. Nothing I've tried has even come close to a proper full size 2lb loaf. Is it possible there is something wrong with the machine or is there a better basic white recipe that I could try. Thanks for your help.

    Bread rises and looks great then when it starts to bake it falls in.

We have owned a Panasonic bread maker for ten years and gets used twice a week to make bread using "spelt " flour.About three years ago the bread maker was producing flat loaves,and was very heavy.We contacted bread making company called "Simply No Knead"and asked for there advise,as we were following the same recipe and method for around six years. They suggested that we add a little more water,and this would fix the problem.We tried this and the bread still failed to rise,so we rang them again .This time they said that we need a new bearing in the bread maker and that would fix it.We did this at a cost of $40 and still no good.This happened over a period of several months.We suggested to them that there must be something wrong with the flour,which they denied.After checking the labels on the packaging we noticed that they were using flour from another country [ I think it was Hungary ],because they had run out of suppies from Australian wheat produces.
The flour was far to old,and bread won't rise if the flour is to old. As soon as they started using Australian produced flour again the bread improved dramatically.

Hope this is helpful to you

Hi Luke,

First thing I would check to see if the yeast you are using is past its "best before" date. Yeast is a living organism that if it is too old it will not works as effective as "fresh".

Usually the yeast will have a note to use the yeast by the date stamped on the packaging.

Next be the order in which you are placing the ingredients in the bread pan. On my B&D 2200 I need to add the ingredients in the order listed in the recipe.

Water first, then fat, then sugar/honey if required, salt and then flour with the yeast placed last in a small well that you make with your fingers in the top of the flour.

Right now I am having the opposite trouble with some new recipes I'm testing. The bread rises right up out of the bread pan and pushes up against the top of the unit. I'm testing by reducing the yeast by 1/4 tsp

I would make sure that all of your ingredients are fresh, particularly your yeast. Also, make sure that not only is your flour fresh, but that you are using bread flour. If the weather is particularly humid, add a couple of extra tablespoons of flour.

Of course, be certain that the water is room temp, and that all ingredients are added per manufacturers specifications!
Good luck - I'm sure you'll get it to come out.

You probably are using tooooo much yeast. As above, make sure its fresh yeast, not expired and use the amount the recipe calls for. Put liquids then flour, then salt, sugar etc.. make a small indent in the flour and put your yeast in the little hole. Only make a small hole though. Are you using the recipes called for in the manual or your own?

Another thing to try is making sure the water is warm. If it isnt the yeast wont rise.

I have a CBK-200 also. I haven't had very good loaves of bread from the recipes in the cookbook that came with it. Try some of the ones on AllRecipes.com instead.

Also, as the other person said, check your yeast. Even if it is before the "best by" date, if it's been open more than 6 months, it's too old.

Is your yeast, butter, etc. all at room temperature? Is your water 85-95 degrees?

Try adding vital wheat gluten, even if you're not doing a quick loaf. Add 1 teaspoon up to 1 Tablespoon for the best results. It will improve your texture and height of the loaf. You can purchase it next to the flour at the grocery store.

One other thought - are you using whole wheat flour in a recipe that's for white flour? That can also affect things.

FWIW, my first loaf in my machine was like a brick. The second was much better (different recipe).

Bread kneader gets stuck in loaf


That is going to happen often with breadmachines, especially when making breads with thick crust. The only way to avoid it 100% of the time is to make dough with your machine and then do the final rising and baking in the oven. There is one other thing you can do to avoid the dreaded" paddle injury" to your loaves and still bake in your machine. Visit me at breadmachineshelp.com and I'll reveal my little trick!

1.5 pound loaves often come up short of the top. One thing you can do to get a little better size loaf is to use 1/2 the salt recommended. If you like this solution and it works for you please send consider sending a small courtesy payment to my paypal account at daryl441@msn.com
I always use 1/2 the salt recommended and get a better size loaf and it's healthier for you also.

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.

My wholemeal loaves rise too high and stick to the roof of the lid. i sm using white and whole meal flour and the water seems to be the correct heat. please can you tell me why this is as any other loaf i...


I don't have this model breadmaker, but if your loafs are raising too high, you should either reduce the amount of sugar or the amount of yeast you put in. The yeast makes the gas that makes the bread rise. If the culture has less food (less sugar) or if the culture is smaller it start with (less yeast) than you'll get smaller loafs. Try decreasing your sugar by a tablespoon or cutting the yeast by 1/2 teaspoon. You might need to try several reductions. If you're using another source of sugar, like molasses, just cut it by the same tablespoon amount.

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 is ****.


Try to buy bread mixes that are in proportion to your machine. I had a machine that mads 2-1/2 pound loaves. I could only find mixes for 3/4 pound loaves. I had to buy multiple mixes, put them together and divide them by weight. I gave the machine away.

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!
