Question about Welbilt ABMIL2P Bread Maker

1 Answer

Half sized dish shaped wholemeal bread

I have observed my bread rise perfectly then shortly after the baking-oven cycle comes on it just collapses forming a big crater. The bread is tasty and edible if heavy with a course texture. I have no probs with white bread it is perfect every time so it's not the machine.
Recipe used: 3 1/3 cups of wholemeal flour, tablespoon of vegetable oil, 3 teaspoons of dried yeast, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 1/3 cups of water.
Programme used Wholemeal
I would very much appreciate any suggestions.
John

    Thanks abbyjas, I added 1/4 teaspoon of salt and there was definite improvement. I'll try extra sugar next.

Hi
I had a similar problem in making sourdough bread and noted on some websites the importance of correct salt and surgar quantities for rising. I increased my quantities to correct the problem. Of course the recipe was different but it may help.

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.

Mixing OK but not heating/baking


That's not a good sign. This will keep your bread from rising properly and baking, obviously.
If you are still under warranty, contact your manufacturer, otherwise, you can still use the machine to mix but you will need to use your oven to finish your bread.
If your bread is not rising in the machine:
  • Remove mxing chamber from machine
  • If the chamber is not removable, UN-PLUG THE BREAD MACHINE so the blades DO NOT TURN.
  • Be careful of the mixing blade in the chamber
  • Remove dough gently with slightly oiled hands into a lightly oiled bowl with room for about 2x the volume of the dough
  • Cover with plastic wrap to prevent the dough from drying
  • Place the bowl of dough in an unheated oven and leave the oven OFF
  • Place an empty lasagna pan in the cold oven on a shelf below the dough or on the floor of the oven if there are no exposed elements
  • Boil some water and pour it carefully into the lasagna pan
  • Close the oven door - You have just made a proofing box. The steam and heat from the boiled water is sufficient to make a great proofing cabinet out of your oven hot box
  • Allow the dough to rise to about twice the original volume
  • remove the dough from the oven and remove the pan of water
  • continue with the baking instructions below
If your bread is rising in the machine or you have finished the above instructions:
  • Remove dough gently with slightly oiled hands into bread pans. Breadmakers are different sizes so you may need to use one or two pans. Or make an artisan style loaf on a cookie sheet lined with parchment.
  • Be careful not to compress your risen dough as this will make the loaves dense
  • You may also choose to make buns by separating the dough into smaller balls and placing on parchment lined cookie sheets
  • You can allow the dough to rise again for a short time in the proofing box above but I would just leave them on the counter under clean towels to prevent drying for say another 20 minutes. Over-rising bread should also be prevented. The result will be 'deflated' looking bread.
  • Preheat your oven to 375F and bake the bread until it is golden and makes a hollow sound when thumped on the top or the bottom crust
Personally, I love that a machine will mix and knead my dough for me while i go do something else but I don't like the appearance of a machine baked bread. I like the artisan hand-made look. I recommend you keep the breadmaker until you find one you like that is drastically reduced in price and just use the artisan proofing & baking options above.
If you have a Pizza Stone, you can also try that for baking an artisan bread. Use the breadmaker as the workhorse, use your oven as an artist.
Good Luck and may the Yeast be Lively!

My bread appears to be rising well with a nicely rounded top then somewhere early in the bake cycle the top collapses or falls. What would cause that?


This is probably caused by a large bubble forming in the dome. Try cutting back on the yeast by a half teaspoon. Bread maker recipes are a hit or miss situation.

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

Bread collapses after rising at start of bake cycle


bake the same recipe next time but use 1 tablespoon less liquid. It should get better. If it only gets a little better then use 2 tablespoons less on the second one. Total of 2 should do it if you have to go that far.

Bread raises to good heights and then falls while baking to half the size. I have made 2 loaves now and it has done it to both. I have new yeast for a "bread maker machine".


Very likely Oven temperature that's too low. This means the dough rises to its maximum, then collapses before it gets hot enough to set.

Try using a little less liquid and/or more flour in your recipe; Might be enough to fix it..
Also try a different program. and/ or Try different recipes

If still happens, return machine as defective.

Everything works fine, bread rises and looks like it will be beautiful, but almost every time, the top collapses by the end of the baking cycle. This happens whether I use the regular cycle or the whole...


The next time you bake bread use 1 tablespoon less liquid. If it still collapses then the 2nd time use one tablespoon less liquid and ONE MORE tablespoon of flour. That should do it!

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.

Bread settles down wile baking.


Bread deflating or baking sunken in with a crater ridge around the top usually means too much liquid or sugar.  Try the same recipe by reducing the liquid by 2 tablespoons.  If dough appears like pie crust dough, add teaspoon of liquid down the side of the dough and observe. Add another if necessary.  Humidity and temperature affect the dough and its behavior  Do not dispair if a recipe that has been tried and true suddenly does not "work."

Baking gluten free bread in model 5890


good day,
hope this link below will solve your problem.

Set your bread machine program for 1.5 loaf medium crust. I used the gluten-free cycle on the Breadman; if you don't have a gluten-free cycle, I believe a rapid rise cycle will also work.

Check the dough after a few minutes of kneading- it should be closer to a muffin batter than bread dough, soft but not too wet. Adjust dry to wet ratio with a tablespoon of flour or warm liquid, as needed. Humidity influences the dough. As does temperature (your bread will rise higher on a hot day).

If you like a crusty loaf, remove the bread from the pan and place it in the oven at 350 degrees F for an additional 10 minutes- keep an eye on it and don't let it get too brown. It should be a light golden color.

Cool the loaf before slicing for best results.

Enjoy fresh from the oven- the first day (as with most gluten-free baked goods) has the best texture and taste
