Bread tastes great, buuuuuut...

January 17, 2016 - 10:20pm -- Jsage

So, I have a black and decker b6000c deluxe 3 lb bread machine and I've got a recipe that I've been tinkering with. Changing the salt and yeast have helped a bit but I ran into a point at which it stops helping. 

The bread tastes awesome and has a wonderful texture in the top half. The bottom 1/3 is super dense. Also, it rises unevenly and one end of the loaf will be significantly taller than the other. I am not against using a different recipe, I just love the taste of this one.

Hi. John here.   We just bought a Panasonic.   Enjoying it.   

Posting here on breadmaker recipes because it seems to be the only place specifying breadmakers on the site.  

Have made three loafs so far.  All using recipes from the book.  

Full white bread.   Full whole wheat.  and then 1/2 each.   All came out pretty good, but there is certainly room for improvement.    ( trying to find the right mix for the kids To love ) the Whole  wheat loaves were a touch on the denser side.  The full white was a bit crumbly.

almost daily, I make a 2 lbs French loaf Bread in the office kitchen to share with everyone. nothing fancy, The ingredients are simple and so is the process-trying to keep it simple. We cut the loaf into slices and spread butter and its gone in no time.  I place the ingredients in the machine right before leaving for the day, set the timer and magically we have fresh bread in the morning (12 hrs delay start). we love it !  BTW-we are all IT nerds so we know nothing about cooking and love bread or cake or ...

the ingredients:

1.5 tea sp. SALT

2.0 table sp. SUGAR

I've been gifted a breadmaker! - Help!!

October 30, 2015 - 3:57pm -- lizziepee

Hi - new to the site :-)

I've been gifted a used Sunbeam Breadmaker (model 5837-33) by someone who knows nothing about it.

I was thrilled to receive it and expected to be able to find manuals, etc., on the internet. Unfortunately that is not the case and I don't know where to start with using it.

There are no options for loaf size so I assume it only makes on size, but which one? The bread pan looks a good size.

Does anyone have this machine or suggestions for figuring it out? I don't want to waste a lot of ingredients getting it wrong.

Adapting recipes for bread maker

October 15, 2015 - 10:57am -- terysav

I'm new to this site so- hello! 

Hoping for some advice. I have baked cakes for several years, venturing every now and then into the realm of bread. Recently my partner and I moved onto our boat, so we have just bought a bread machine to conserve gas, have bread available even when we're sailing somewhere remote, and to reduce the amount of time the oven is on in the heat (the boat heats up very quickly! ).
