first try with Bread machine - need help with dough rising questions

July 25, 2017 - 1:39pm -- RODDY

I have a used Black & Decker All In One Pro Breadmaker

I used the dough maker program

it took about 2 hours & was rising nicely when with about 8 minutes to go the paddle started up & again and it fell.

Is this normal?

I took the dough out, separated it into 2 halves and put them in baking pans

The dough has been rising now for about 1 hour & 35-40 mins

I was expecting it to rise above the top edge before I put them in the oven but it has not.

Here are some pics of how it looks now

Any thoughts?

Firm bottom - saggy top

Apologies for the corny title, but it describes the problem I'm having with my Panasonic SD2501 breadmaker.

I'm new to the world of breadmaking, and received the breadmaker as a Christmas gift. I love it and I am generally very happy with what it produces. However, now that I've had a few loaves through it, I'm getting a bit more picky about the results.

White loaves, of any size seem to turn out just about spot-on using the recipe in the instructions.

Need picture of ws bread machine ctrl panel

hi everyone!  I have a william Sonoma (model ws0797) bread machine but it's missing the sticker for the control panel. If someone has the same model can you send me a picture of your control panel so I know what button does what?  The manuals I found online don't have a picture that I could find.

why does my bread not rise properly?

December 7, 2016 - 1:58pm -- karaman


new to forum and bread-making machine.

I do everything it tells me to make a simple white loaf but after three hours 10 minutes, it comes out about three-quarters the height it ought to be.  It is edible but somewhat heavier and more compact than the light and airy production i am expecting.  Have tried it several times carefully measuring the ingredients ----> with the same result.  i am using the recipe from the previous machine which went t*s up ( it saw me coming) as the new machine's stuff is unintelligible for a numtie.

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?
