The machine will beep when it is time to add such ingredients.  It happens toward the end of the second kneading. If your machine never beeps then something is wrong with it.

Sorry, I don't know too much about breadmakers, but generally speaking, you add ingredients that you want to remain solid later into the mixture. If you add them before the dough is dough-y, then they'll get crushed.

I need a manual for the magic mill auto bakery model #mmab300


From what I can assess about the unit is as follows:
The timer is for a delay start
The auto selection appears to be for setting the darkness of the loaf
After the unit kneads, it will beep for you to add the extra ingredients (i.e. raisins, etc.).
I hope this helps, I am still looking for the manual.

Do you mix up the dough before you put the dough in the machine? or do you just add all the ingredence and let it the machine mix it up?


Hi friend, that is the wonder of a bread machine! You just put the ingredients in (measured carefully) and it does all the work. You don't have to mix anything!

I baked a bread and now its uncooked how do i set the timer for more time to bake ONLY please help me quickly


There will be no need to extend the baking time on your uncooked loaf for if the loaf is uncooked as you say cooking it longer won't make things any better. I suspect you need a bit of tutoring regarding the fine art of using a bread machine.

Here is the assistance I offer:

White Flour: When using white flour select nothing less than unbleached white flour containing 12 to 16% protein (or 3 to 4 % per ¼ cup serving). Storage: Flour absorbs ambient humidity hindering it from blending with liquid ingredients during the initial kneading phase so always be certain to store your flour in a burped & sealed freezer bag.


Yeast: Use active dry yeast for all your standard-rise bread recipes and rapid-rise dry yeast for all your fast-bake bread recipes. Fast-Bake aka Ultra-Bake aka Rapid-Bake aka Express-Bake is an option available on select models. Always refrigerate your yeast with a close eye on the expiration date. When using grocery-bought bread mixes always substitute the yeast packet provided with fresh active dry yeast. Tip: A packet (or "sachet") of active dry yeast contains 2-1/4 teaspoons.


Baking Surface Prep: Spray, not wipe or smear, the inside of your loaf pan generously with cooking oil before adding the ingredients.


Water: Use only drinking or filtered water, never tap, boiled or distilled.


Ingredient Temperatures: All ingredients should be at room temperature before pressing Start. Specifically 70 to 80 degrees F, 21 to 87 degrees C. Add liquids, oils, salts, sugars and seasonings first, next the flour, and last the yeast.


Delayed Start: Flour floats on the surface of the water until the initial kneading phase begins. That is why many breadmakers have a programmable start-delay timer. You can add the ingredients tonight and wake up in the morning to the aroma of fresh-baked bread.


Shelf Life: Refrigeration and/or freezing finished loaves is not recommended. For best results store them in a breadbox. Tip: Adding 1-2 tsps of lemon juice to any bread or dough recipe will double the shelf life of your bread.


Measuring: Water MUST be measured using a clear liquid measuring cup. Dry ingredients MUST be measured using standard measuring cups. All measurements, either spoons or cups, MUST be leveled.


Slicing The Loaf: Electric carving knives work best, especially when using a slicing guide. Be certain to wait until the loaf is cool to the touch before slicing.

Recommend you go ahead and put your raisins in with all the rest of the ingredients in the beginning. Raisins are pretty tough so I don't think they will just puree. Please let me know if this solve the problem.

Do you still have your old machine? If so try one of the recipes that failed in your new machine. If it fails again you may have bad ingredients. Old yeast, old flour, etc....that's the only thing I can come up with based on what you have described. If the loaf in your old machine turns out well then you should return your Black and Decker. You can find good deals on ebay on used bread machines that are tested and they show the loaf of finished bread. I have some for sale there, that I have baked in.

Ingredient Information
  • Flour– Use flour that is marked “bread flour” or “better for bread”. (Thesewill usually be labeled as having more gluten than regular flour.)
  • Dry Skim Milk – This enhances the flavor and adds to the nutrition of the bread.
  • Butter – Butter adds a rich flavor to the bread and makes it soft.
  • DryYeast – Yeast is necessary for causing the dough to rise. Select readyto use yeast which needs no preliminary fermentation. Use only activedry yeast. Don’t use 50% faster dry yeast.
  • Sugar – Sugar speeds up the dough rising process, adds flavor, and makes the bread soft and the crust brown.
  • Salt – Salt controls the activity of the yeast and makes the dough firm.
  • Water– Gluten is formed when flour is mixed with water. This allows thedough to rise by retaining air. The amount of water and its temperatureare very important. Usually, the water temperature should be between 68F/20 C and 77 F/25 C. When the room temperature is over 82 F/ 26C, usecold water (about 41 F/5 C). When the room temperature is under 50 F/10C, use lukewarm water (about 100 F/38 C).

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!

I had the same problem with a loaf of whole wheat bread. I also am a new bread machine user and followed directions explicitly. What I figured out was that the pan was not seated all the way into the clips so the paddle mechanism wasn't connected to the motor.

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.
