We want to bake gluten-free bread in our Black and Decker 2300 all-in-one 3-lb bread maker but there is no gluten-free setting and no rapid rise setting. What program setting should we use please?

The only difference is that you are using Rice Flour instead of wheat flour. My advice as a trade chef would be to mix your yeast, water, and the yeast 'food', (honey, sugar, molasses) and get it working in advance. Mix it in a jug and keep it warm until it starts foaming up the jug. The dump that into the machine with all the other ingredients. Use that 1 hour 58 minute cycle.

This recipe is on the page, flagged because of the 'Gluten Free' title.

I have a great recipe for gluten free bread. I too have a model 1185 and quite regularly use it as I have two people in my family that need wheat free bread and buying pre-mixed flour or gluten free bread is much more expensive. Here is my solution:

First add wet ingredients:
1.5 C ROOM TEMPERATURE buttermilk
1 Tbsp cider vinegar
3 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup honey

Then in separate bowl mix together dry ingredients:
1+1/3 cup rice flour
2/3 cup soy flour
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup potato starch
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1 Tbsp Xanthan gum
1 tsp salt
Dump into machine on top of wet ingredients. Then sprinkle in 1 pkg Hodgson Mill yeast (this brand works much much better than any other. If you can't find it, use another brand but add 25% more yeast - an extra quarter packet).
Set machine for "DOUGH" (setting 5 on ours)
When it's done, pour dough into greased bread pan and set aside to rise (don't cover it).
When it almost reaches the top of the bread pan, put it in a COLD oven.
Turn the oven on to 300 and place a cookie sheet under it in case it drips over. Then set the timer for 1 hour.
You can add cinnamon chips for cinnamon bread.
To make pizza dough, add 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, a tablespoon of garlic powder, and a couple tablespoons of italian seasoning to dry ingredients.
Once dough is done, drop onto three pizza pans. The only way to spread it out is to spray the top with pan spray, spread plastic wrap over it and spread it out by pressing on the plastic wrap. When it's spread, peel off the plastic wrap carefully. Bake immediately at 400 until just beginning to turn brown. You can wrap and freeze or top with sauce right away,

I have purchased a Black and Decker bread machine to replace the one which I have used for the last 15 years or so. The recipes with the new machine are atrocious; I should be able to use my recipes which...

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.

When I first got my breadman I made several loves of the basic white recipe using Pamela's gluten free bread mix. They all turned out fine. Then I started experimenting with the other recipes provided. ...

Without knowing the specific ingredients in your recipe and having no experience with gluten free flour I am basing this on what I know about bread makers in general. I have owned dozens!
1) If the onion spice you are adding is something like a mix (onion soup mix for example) then you may get better results if you cut back on the salt by about 1/2. Also, next time when your machine starts the rapid knead (after the beginning slow knead) if the dough looks like batter instead of a dough ball add about 1 tablespoon slowly trickled in over about 10 seconds. Watch the dough ball and see if it starts to look a little dryer. The goal is to not have the gooey batter on the bottom of the pan. The slow addtions of flour will do that for you. If this works please leave a testimonial. I like helping fellow bread machine makers and getting feed back! Best of Luck with your next effort!

Bread making ingrediants for model # WWWTR442

Just follow the ingredients on the recipe. There is no formula for bread, you must follow a recipe, or buy the premixed packages.

Dense, misshapen (maybe undercooked?) loaf!

A COMMON problem is to use regular flour instead of the "bread flour".

I stack the ingredients in a particular order for my Hitachi brand breadmaker. The liquid goes in on the bottom. Then the BREAD FLOUR ( high glutten), then other powdered ingredients EXCEPT the yeast... It goes on top so as to be exposed and activated the last thing during mixing... The flour I use is the "Better for Bread" brand. Using regular enriched flour usually results in a paperweight half as tall as it should be.

After initial mixing, the dough should be in a ball and not really sticking to the sides of the container.

Making regular white or whole wheat works fine but as soon as a recipe calls for flaked onion, garlic, dill etc. the loaf does not rise very much. Should threse ingredients be added later?

due to the general acidic properties of these ingredients, the living organisms in yeast may be partially killed off in these recipes. To increase the rise of these breads using a small amount of warm water to activate your yeast (place the yeast in a small dish and add a tablespoon or more of warm, not hot water), until it's a little foamy, helps. If the directions call for the ingredients to be added at a later time then I would follow those instructions, if not, and you're feeling a little adventurous, try adding those ingredients near the end of the 'resting' cycle of the bread maker, this allows the dough to rise before the yeast is submitted to the more acidic ingredients, and you would be adding them before baking again. If your bread maker does not mix again after the resting period this will not work though.
Yeast are little organisms that when revitalized, excrete gases into the dough, giving it little pockets of air, that when baked expand and allows for more even cooking and those little bubbles in your bread that make it fluffy and more tasty. Higher quality east are typically more resistant to acids, and the older the yeast is the lower the gaseous production is.

Top of bread loaf falls

Use Fleischman's Active Dry Yeast, and not any other kind of yeast - make sure you follow the recipe guide to the letter, or your results may not turn out right. Also, never pre-mix the ingredients before putting them in the Cuisinart - let the breadmaker do the mixing for you.
