Low Carb Bread in a B&D B600C

November 12, 2016 - 1:48pm -- anon125

we have used the same basic recipe for years with the old B&D B2300. changes in the Vital Wheat gluten and oat flour meant minor changes like more yeast needed.

the new machine made a fine loaf the first time but the second - on 2 machines made lumpy and 'stringy' looking tiny loaves.

Any ideas?

Possible to make loaf in machine w/o AP four or bread flour?

August 24, 2016 - 3:21am -- IrishMike

So we got out bread machine last week. Made a white load with bread flour. Great stuff but it gave us gas and just an all around crummy feel. I am sure it was the white flour.



I would like to make a loaf using only multi grain flour, is this possible without bread flour or AP flour?

.... Hello all!

I'm looking for a good sourdough loaf recipe for the bread machine.  I have used the recipe from King Arthur several times, and I'd like to try out other versions.

Thank you!

Panasonic Bread Maker SD - 2500 WXC

July 24, 2016 - 10:46am -- Bonsai2


I have recently moved from an Anthony Warrel Thompson Breville Breadmaker to the Panasonic SD - 2500 which I picked up from e-Bay at  a cost of just over £30.00.

What a difference in the loaf quality, crust, and taste.  I have tried a few of the panasonic recipes and they are very good but the recipes from 'Brilliant Breadmaking' by 'Catherine Allison' take the biscuit!

Having taken advice from fellow contributors to 'The Fresh loaf', I have tried reducing the recipe sugar levels by 50% or completely without any loss of quality and taste.

bread-making machine, dense bread

June 8, 2016 - 12:36am -- Wulfsige

I follow the recipe book accompanying my Panasonic breadmaker 'to the letter'; I use warm water checking with a thermometer that it is ca 80 to 90 degrees. My 70% wholemeal bread is dense and heavy, hardly risen, and still coagulated at the centre. Adding a teaspoon of gluten improved it next time, but only a little. What might be going wrong - the machine, the recipe, or me? Any advice will be very welcome.

Reducing the recommended sugar quantity

May 14, 2016 - 4:25pm -- Bonsai2

I have just made the best looking and best tasting loaf on my Breville breadmaker to date.  50% wholemeal and 50% white flour.  The only downside is that the bread is too sweet for my taste.  The recipe stated to add one tbsp of caster sugar for a 750g loaf.

If I reduce the sugar quantity by 25% or 50% is it likely to affect any of the other ingredients and spoil the makeup of the loaf?
