Question about Black & Decker Bread Machine

1 Answer

The bread rises only to about half the size of the container. I have used extra yeast, extra liquid, let the yeast begin to work before adding it to the machine, but nothing changes. The bread is good, but it is heavy. What can I do to increase the amount the bread rises?

The bread doesn't rise properly, it sort of sinks in the middle. This is the same recipe we've used for years successfully. Could the machine just be broken?


Is this the same machine you have been using all this time? Or, is this an old recipe that worked in your previous machine but doesn't work in your Cuisinart? If you have moved from one location such as Florida to Colorado, elevation changes like that can make a difference in bread rising properly. If nothing has changed and now your bread doesn't rise properly then try using 1 tablespoon less liquid. If that doesn't work try 2 tablespoons less liquid and 1/2 teaspoon extra yeast.

Breadman ultimate bread won't rise


Ensure you are using the right ingredients, fresh yeast, a little salt and maybe a crushed vitC tablet. Don't use standard fine flour you need a courser flour. help it mix by putting ingredients in evenly, liquids first. melt any butter you use in a microwave before adding. most breads use artificially improved flours. if you grind your own flour it will end up a much heavier loaf.....i like it that way.
If nothing i have said helps then it might be time to give up on your breadmaker

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.

A few tips.
The yeast must be absolutely fresh, use sachets instead of packets.
Keep yeast well away from the fats and liquids.
The fast rise setting will produce less rise than the full program.
You must only use strong bread flour.

With the 5838 the bread looks good till the bake cycle as than the bread falls about halh an inch


Accurate measured ingredients, fresh and best ingredients (especially yeast and flour), warm liquid (110 degrees), use peanut oil instead of butter (raises well and stays fresh longer), pkg. Rapid Rise yeast is same as bottled bread machine yeast and is always fresher (1 pkg equals 2 1/4 tsp.so use jarred yeast for odd amounts, ie. 5 tsp=2 pkgs + 1/2 tsp from jar). Wheat bread will rise good and drop a little but stays good for slicing. Oster's pan is too large so I cut loaf in half length ways for smaller and easy to slice pieces.

Frequently the bread does not rise correctly when doing "fast" mode.Should the unit be heating during the rise cycle?


Bread not rising correctly is complicated since there are so many factors involved more than just proofing temperature. You should hear a short click once in a while as it cycles the heater on for just a second at a time. You won't notice any considerable heat since too much heat will kill the yeast. Bread not rising correctly is normally due to the gluten not being developed in the bread or the flour was poor quality without much gluten to begin with. You can try adding some "Vital Wheat Gluten" to each batch to help and at the same time adjusting the yeast up by a half teaspoon at a time. Also keep in mind that the salt you add to the dough will ****** the yeast. Try and limit the salt to a teaspoon per loaf. Too little salt and the taste of the bread will go bland on you. Another aid to rising is to add some Diastatic Malt Powder to assit in the rise. And lastly, remember that you whole wheat flour will never rise as high as white flour.

Bread too high


The one thing that rises bread is yeast. You have some super duper yeast if the breadmaker suggests a certain amount and you keep getting the same results. You can either reduce the rise time -- or the amount of yeast -- or both.

Bread won't rise


We have owned a Panasonic bread maker for ten years and gets used twice a week to make bread using "spelt " flour.About three years ago the bread maker was producing flat loaves,and was very heavy.We contacted bread making company called "Simply No Knead"and asked for there advise,as we were following the same recipe and method for around six years. They suggested that we add a little more water,and this would fix the problem.We tried this and the bread still failed to rise,so we rang them again .This time they said that we need a new bearing in the bread maker and that would fix it.We did this at a cost of $40 and still no good.This happened over a period of several months.We suggested to them that there must be something wrong with the flour,which they denied.After checking the labels on the packaging we noticed that they were using flour from another country [ I think it was Hungary ],because they had run out of suppies from Australian wheat produces.
The flour was far to old,and bread won't rise if the flour is to old. As soon as they started using Australian produced flour again the bread improved dramatically.

Hope this is helpful to you
