I solved the problem... I had to read the Black and Decker book again. But the machine is really to small for the 3 lb loaf. Many times I had to punch down the bread by hand so it would not stick to the top. And cutting down on the yeast is not the problem, as so many had said. Thank you, I am still not over happy with the BIG Machine.

Foolproof bread recipe: 2 cups milk, 5/6 tsp bread machine yeast, 2/3 tsp salt, 2 tbsp brown sugar, 2 tbsp margarine, 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1 1/2 cups white flour, some flax seed and some poppy seed to taste. There is no way this will stick to the top of your pan, if (a) you start the bread soon after putting the ingredients in and (b) you put the flour in it last.

Cut back on your recipe a wee bit. You are adding to much thus making a loaf to large for the pan and it has no where to go but up. :)
That happened to me just once and I learned to be more careful on what I was doing and measure a bit more carefully.
I am very happy with this big machine!

Bread rises too high


Try using less yeast ( average loaf needs only 1 1/2 tsp yeast) and don't forget to add salt as that will also control the rising.
Or make a smaller size bread.

Hi, Take the pan out of the machine and see if you can turn the paddles by hand. If yes that's good...if no then paddles are sticking. Keep pan out of machine and start a kneading cycle. Look through the lid window and see if the motor shafts are turning. If no...then the belts fell off or are loose. If everything is fine then maybe it's the electronic panel. Hank

B&D B2300 - when the bread finishes baking, I end up with it collapsed in at the top so I get a big crater in the finished product. I have been using part whole wheat, part white flour. Why is it...


Your machine is too warm while the dough rises. No adjustment possible. You can add a bit of Gluten to your bread or buy flour for bread making instead of general purpose flour. Most white flour has gluten reduced during processing.

Julie Childs book, "the way to cook" has a nice write up on gluten in European flour vs. the general purpose flour we commonly buy in the US.

I have a brand new black and decker bread maker - used it four times....but each time the bread is very heavy, not light. I measure ingredients excactly as your recipe calls for. What is the problem Jean...


There are many ways to adjust the weight of your bread. Try any (or all) of the following:
1) a little less salt.
2) a little more water
3) a little less flour
4) add 1 or 2 tablespoons of wheat glutten
5) use the dough setting and let bread rise in bread pans for a good long time (e.g. 1.5 or 2 hours)
6) 'better for bread' yeast - stored in the refrigerator

Way to high of loaf


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!

Paddle stuck inside bread


I have the B2300 bread machine as well and I have encountered the same problem as you. So, I came up with the idea of removing the paddles right after the machine has stopped mixing the dough. Whenever I bake bread at home, I tend to follow the above mentioned solution and it made my life much easier.

this is the second rise period. it is ok, and at this time if you like, you can gently move the dough aside, and remove the paddles. Just remember to put a little oil on the exposed stem. This way, you can have bread without the huge holes from the paddles.

I had the same problem and I changed the regular white flour for the one especially made for bread. Now I have big loaf of bread.
