Good Bread, But No Bread Smell

Good Bread, But No Bread Smell

I have two ABMs, and have made several varieties of good tasting bread in each.

One big thing that is missing is that wonderful smell of fresh baking bread.

Does anyone know what may cause that?

I'm not sure what you refer to as "ABMs" but am feeling you mean bread machines....  if so, I don't think they do allow many fumes out while baking.  I've used bread machines for several years and only use them to mix, knead and proof.  Then I shape into loaves or rolls, rise and bake in the regular oven, which vents out the top of the stove.  Maybe if you try this, you'll get that great smell going thru your house.  paulav
