JUST got it this morning. Followed directions (really easy to do) and I can't get more than 1/4 cup of liquid to come out! Plus water is filling the bottom thing up really fast! Tried the cleaning thing (whole start up process) a couple times from the beginning. Always the same result. Did I get a dud?

Hot chocolate is one of thoses childhood drinks that are amazing. It doesn't matter how old or young you are - everybody loves a good hot chocolate. I've followed hundreds of different recipes but my all time favorite is this one. It's actually a Parisian hot chocolate recipe so not only does it taste great but it sounds very fancy. Ingredients: 2 cups full fat milk 5 oz (130g) of good quality bittersweet chocolate ie high percentage of cocoa - chopped small 2 tablespoons of brown sugar (to taste). Method: 1. Heat the milk in a medium pan 2. When the milk is warm whisk in the chocolate and stir until melted and very hot. 3. Cook on a low boil light for about 3 minutes but whisk constantly. Make sure it doesn't boil over. 4.Taste it and add sugar if desired. Serve in small coffee cups for a really sophisticated look.
cups measure volume , you wish to measure weight. Try 100 ml equivalent , or a tiny bit more. 100ml is just over 3 ounces of liquid equivalent. In theory one ml is the same as 1 gram but the measure is for liquid. (water I think) A teaspoon full is about 5ml/5 grams. Slightly over the 100ml mark is a very rough estimate. A weighing scale really would be better
A good trick that i found was to fill tub with hot water and put a full cup of dishwasher detergent any kind but has to be powdered not liquid detergent. Do this two times in a row and then every month.
Here's a good basic white bread recipe that works great with a BD2550 (and usually doesn't even **** the mixing blade into 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).
Look at the box first. Many times it will have instructions on
it. However sometimes it may not and have only the the dry
ingredients. If the box has no instructions, see how many cups of
flour the mix uses. If it uses 3 cups of flour total, the mix is
for a 1 1/2 pound loaf. If the mix uses 2 cups of flour it will
make a 1 pound loaf. Box missing this info? It's time to
take the flour out of the box to measure it with at measuring
cup. Mixes sometimes combine all the ingredients together so it
will measure bit more than 3 cups for a 1 1/2 pound loaf or 2 cups for
1 pound loaf. After finding out how big the loaf is going to be
then get the bread pan and instruction manual and start constructing
the dough. I'd find the recipe in the manual that matches the mix
the best to find out how much liquid to use. (for a classic whit
its 1 cup for 1 1/2 pound leaf and 3/4 cup for 1 pound loaf) Then I put
the liquid in the pan first along with butter (if necessary), followed
by the dry ingredients in the mix with the yeast at the top. Put
the pan into the bread machine and select 1 or 1 1/2 loaf or if it is a
french or sweet bread. Press start. Unfortunately I have a
different machine than you do, but I think this will help.
