If the machine is heating up and there is no burning on the set heat that you have chosen then I dont think it can be the fault of the micro wave .
If there is burning on the sides or the bottom , then reduce the power rating and extend the timing. But if the cake seems fine, the batter is evenly cooked , the I suppose the fault can be the mix by itselt.
I recommend that you must try with new yeast, maybe the one you have used is old and ineffective. Use a good mix preferably good whipping.I am sure the next time your cake will be great.

    Sorry I meant the bread and not the cake.. I personally advice baking with the gas flame and the microwave to be used for defrosting, preheating from the freezer and not much for cooking.

    Hope my advice helps.

I have G273v samsung microwave. can i bake a cake in that

Yeast will not rise using conventional microwave oven type energy. So, you can't have your microwave and eat it too ... (groan - sorry)

At 17 minutes bread rises well but the bread is not done because the edges are only a little brown, but at 20 minutes the bread always falls!

Check the manual of your oven (ESPECIALLY FOR BREAD MAKING) you probably do not have the correct programming, when the bread FALLS it means that the heat (microwave) kick's in too abruptly (NOT LIKE IN AN CONVENTIONAL OVEN) graduated...

I'm not an expert just a suggestion...

Good luck!

Can i use the kenwood chef with the dough hook for the second kneading in bread making

If you use the dough hook it will remove the air built up in the rising dough. The Kenwood should have a beater or paddle for that.
I prefer to use my hands and give the bread a good beating!

Clonking when kneeding dough and not mixing properly

A very clever microwave, making bread!
If and as I suspect you have a bread maker, the beater does clonk a lot as it mimiks the beating motion of making dough and proving. It will pick everything up and stir it in as it rises.
Hope that clarifies for you.

After using the dough cycle do I need to let the dough rise again, or just bake it?

All bread need tim, (pardon the pun). It should be left to ris a little then bake it.

Bread not rising

I know somebody with a breadmaker who had a similar problem and it was because the yeast was close to out of date. Bought new yeast and all was fine

Maybe... It all comes down to individual taste, just use what works and suits you; like all cookery it's not an exact science. The wrong recipe won't break your machine, it'll just be a bad loaf or sometimes a happy accident which produces better results than expected.

Regular bread recipes don't usually include milk powder, just flour, water and yeast, at the most basic and usually sugar (mainly to get the yeast activated) and a little salt, but it depends upon what you're making.

I have an Oster Bread maker model # 4811 and the

If it's heating at all, the element is probably good. If it is cooked partway, but not fully, that could be because it isn't rising. Make sure the dough is the right consistency before baking, as a different flour could have a different moisture content, thus requiring a different amount of water. Make sure there is sugar in the dough for the yeast to "eat" or it will not rise. If all else fails, try other yeast. Your can also test the yeast by proofing it. Put a teaspoon of the yeast in a cup of warm water with a teaspoon of sugar. It should foam and bubble in 5 minutes or so. You can find more detailed directions on testing the yeast by searching "proofing yeast" on a search engine. Good luck.
