Question about Cuisinart CBK-200 Bread Maker

1 Answer

Having difficulty Out of 15 loaves I have only had success with one or two loaves. French Baguettes (baked in conventional oven) and one semi soft french bread recipe. All other loaves are comming out hard and compact. I have tried both rapid and standard cycles and am using bread machine yeast. I have followed the directions perfectly and have tried modifying the amount of glutun. Could I have a bad batch of yeast?

Try different batch of yeast. If still a problem increase the amount of yeast and/or sugar. Also if it rises and then falls there may be too much liquid.

I need a recipe for White Bread


Hi greatdane,

Plz find below the recipe for White Bread:

Ingredients:
  • 6 to 7 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 2 packages quick acting or active dry yeast
  • 2 1/4 cups scalded milk cooled to about 120°
Preparation: Mix 3 1/2 cups of flour with sugar, salt, shortening and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Add very warm milk; beat for about 1 minute. Stir in enough of the remaining flour, a cup or so at a time, until dough is easy to handle. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead, adding more flour as necessary to keep it from sticking, until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Place dough in a large buttered mixing bowl. Turn dough over so greased side is up. Cover with a clean dish towel and let rise in a warm place, out of drafts, for about 1 hour, or until doubled. When dough is touched, an indentation will remain. Punch dough down and divide into two equal portions. Flatten each half with hands or rolling pins into a rectangle about 18x10 inches. Starting at 10-inch edge, roll dough tightly; pinch long seam together. With sides of hands, press each end of loaf; fold ends under loaf. Place loaves, seam side down, in loaf pans (approximately 9 x 5 x 3-inch). Brush each loaf lightly with butter. Cover loosely with clean dish towels and let rise until double, about 35 to 50 minutes. Preheat oven to 425°. Bake loaves on a low rack, so tops of pans are at the center of the oven. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Bread will sound hollow when lightly tapped. Makes 2 loaves of white bread.

I'm sick of huge holes in the middle of my loaves where the paddles tear out dough. My breadmaker is a Breville bakers oven.


Hi, Simply take the paddle out of the machine after the final knead cycle and before last rise and baking cycle. If you don't have a pause button, take the pan out of the machine first then remove paddle and reinsert pan into machine (just to be safe). Hank

Keeading blades


I had the same problem. I find the loaves to be a much better size if I just use program setting 8 - Dough then put the dough in 2 regular bread pans or on cookie sheets (bagetts), let them have a second rising and finish them in the convection oven at 350 F for 21 minutes.

Bread Rises Beautifully - then sinks in middle during bake cycle


Sinking in the middle means that there was too much rising for the amount of structure in the bread.
Usual causes:
-too much yeast (reduce 1/2 tsp.)
-too much sugar (reduce 1/2 tsp.)
-not enough salt (increase 1/4 tsp.)
-too much water (reduce 1 tbsp)
Another possible remedy: use "best for bread" flour, it has more gluten, or add gluten separately, 1 tbsp.

Start with reducing amount of water.

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).

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

Breadman Pro TR875 won't start properly.


I believe whoever sold it on eBay did so for a reason....it's broken. I just bought a Breadman Pro at Linens n Things for 79.99 with the 20% off coupon from Bed Bath and Beyond (those two stores are interchangeable) and I have NO problem turning it on and have successfully baked several loaves of bread without incident. I'd suggest going and buying a new one. Sorry.....
