Things You Should Know
About Your Breadmaker
BEFORE FIRST USE
There’s nothing like the aroma of fresh-baked bread.
With the Black & Decker All-In-One® Automatic
Breadmaker, you can have the old-fashioned goodness of homemade bread with today’s automatic
convenience. That’s because the All-In-One®
Breadmaker does the work for you. Even if you’ve
never made homemade bread before, you’ll rise to
the occasion with this Breadmaker.
Please take a few minutes to read this Use & Care
Instruction/Cookbook and to find a place to keep it
handy for reference. Pay particular attention to the
safety instructions provided for your protection.
Review the product warranty and service statements
and fill out and mail in the owner registration form.
Carefully unpack the Breadmaker and remove
all packaging materials. To remove any dust that
may have accumulated during packing, wipe the
Baking Pan, Mixing Paddle, and outside surface of
the Breadmaker with a clean, damp cloth. Do not
use scouring pads or any abrasives on any part of
the Breadmaker.
POLARIZED PLUG
This appliance has a polarized plug—one
blade is wider than the other. To reduce the
risk of electric shock, this plug will fit into a
polarized outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse it. If it
still does not fit, contact a qualified
electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this
safety feature by modifying the plug in any
way.
TAMPER-RESISTANT SCREWS
This appliance is equipped with tamper-resistant
screws to prevent removal of the outer cover. To
reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not
attempt to remove the outer cover. There are no
user-serviceable parts inside. Repair should be
done only by authorized service personnel.
ELECTRICAL CORD
The cord length of this appliance was selected to
reduce safety hazards that may occur with a longer
cord. If more cord length is needed, an extension
cord with a polarized plug may be used. It should be
rated not less than 10 amperes, 120 Volts, and have
Underwriters Laboratories (U.L.) or Canadian
Standards Association (CSA) listing, depending on
the country. When using a longer cord, be sure it
does not drape over a working area or dangle where
it could be pulled on or tripped over. Handle cord
carefully for longer life; avoid jerking or straining it
at outlet and appliance connections.
Product may vary slightly from what is illustrated.

Getting To Know Your Breadmaker
● An “Add-Ingredient” function signals with
beeps when it’s time to add ingredients
such as fruits or nuts to recipes used with any
setting except Super Rapid Bake. A beep signals
before kneading is completed to let you know
when to add ingredients. This feature helps
keep fruit or nuts whole (See “Add-Ingredient
Function” pg. 10 for more details). If you use
the TIMER to delay baking, you may add all
ingredients at once and bypass this function,
however, your fruit or nuts may get “chopped”
and blended into the bread.
● Do not cover the breadmaker with towels
or other material that may prevent steam from
escaping. Some steaming from vents is normal.
Because of escaping steam, you should keep the
breadmaker several inches (more than 20 cm)
away from cabinets while making bread.
● Do not place any objects on top of the
breadmaker.
● IMPORTANT: Add ingredients in the order they
are specified in the recipe. For best results,
accurate measuring of ingredients is very
important. Do not put larger quantities than
recommended into the Baking Pan as it may
produce poor results and may damage the
breadmaker.
Quick Tips
● Your breadmaker makes large 1.5 lb (700 g)
loaves.
● There are five settings including one for
dough or pasta.
● The “Super Rapid Bake” setting can produce
variations of basic white bread in 70 minutes.
This setting can only be used with recipes
supplied (see pg. 21). You cannot use the
timer with this selection. This setting cannot
handle heavier recipes such as whole grain
because of its shortened rising cycle.
● Depending on the recipe you select, the
“Dough/Pasta” setting will let you produce
dough that can be shaped into dinner rolls,
pizza, long loaves, challah, pretzels, filled braids,
or more. For Pasta, be sure to use pasta or
semolina flour. Pasta dough should be
processed through a pasta maker or pasta
shaper to form the desired shape. Consult the
Cookbook section of this manual.
● The Crust Control function lets you choose
“Regular” or “Dark” crust on the Basic, Super
Rapid Bake, or Sweet settings. It cannot be used
on the Whole Grain or Dough/Pasta settings.
● The “Keep Warm” function begins automatically
after bread is baked. It keeps baked bread
warm up to an hour after the baking is done.
This function stops after 60 minutes or when
the unit is unplugged, or the Start/Reset button
is pressed.

white flour, though some recipes may include small
amounts of whole wheat flour as well. In the U.S.,
be sure to use Bread Flour; in Canada, you may use
Canadian All-Purpose Flour or Bread Flour. Follow
recipes carefully. Basic Bread/Regular Crust will
produce good results when you are using
ingredients such as cheese, nuts, or cornmeal as
they tend to brown easily. Choose Basic Bread/Dark
Crust, to produce a loaf with a darker crust without
lengthening the baking time.

(1:10 hours)
DOUGH/PASTA (2:00 hours)
This setting makes bread-style dough and pasta
dough. Dough can be shaped to make pizza, rolls,
pretzels, long loaves or braids that must then be
baked in a conventional oven. It can also prepare
pasta dough that must then be processed and
shaped through a pasta maker. Pasta dough should
be removed from the Breadmaker after the
“Add-Ingredient” signals (in 40 - 45 minutes).
Follow pasta recipes on page 32 for
specific directions.
This setting is used only to make variations of basic
white bread quickly whether you choose a “Regular”
or “Dark” crust. Refer to the recipe section of this
booklet for a complete list of all recipes that can be
used with this setting. This setting cannot be used
successfully to make breads other than those
specified due to the shorter rising time of this cycle.
SWEET/Regular Crust or
SWEET/Dark Crust (3:50 hours)
Use this setting for recipes that use fruit juice, large
amounts of sugar, cheese, or added sweet
ingredients such as raisins, dried fruit, or chocolate.
Baking temperature is lower to prevent burning.
WHOLE GRAIN (4:10 hours)
This setting is used for recipes with significant
amounts of whole wheat or rye flour, oats,
or bran. This setting has a longer rise cycle
and preheat cycle to allow heavier grains
to expand. Generally, whole wheat/multi-grain
breads are shorter and denser than Basic or Sweet
breads. You cannot use the Crust Color selections
with this setting.
How To Use Your Breadmaker
good to excellent results in this Breadmaker; whereas
American “All-Purpose Flour” will produce poor
results.
T
he four bread making settings in this unit will
combine ingredients, knead, and bake bread
from start to finish – automatically. The
Dough/Pasta setting makes dough for a variety of
recipes but you must shape and bake the dough
yourself in a conventional oven or process it in a
pasta maker. To delay completion, the Automatic
Timer may be programmed to make bread while you
are at work or asleep. (See “Setting the Timer” pg. 10)
Therefore, each recipe is presented with two sets of
ingredients – one for each country. Since ingredients
are different, it is important that you double check to
be sure you are following the recipe appropriate for
ingredients in your country (U.S. or Canada) before
using your Breadmaker.
The Cookbook section of this book includes recipes
that have been thoroughly tested in Black & Decker’s
own test kitchens both in the United States and
Canada to ensure best results. Flours, cornmeal, and
a few other ingredients vary widely between
the two countries.
NOTE: The term,“All-Purpose Flour” for example, is
applied to two totally different types of flour
depending on whether it is purchased in the U.S. or
Canada. Canadian “All-Purpose Flour” will produce
Most North American national brand flours and
yeasts will produce good results. Keep in mind that
the recipes included here have been created by our
Home Economists specifically for this automatic
breadmaker (Model B1561) and may not produce
acceptable results in other similar breadmakers.

ARROWS will come up in the display window indicating BASIC BREAD TYPE with a REGULAR crust and
12:00 AM will flash in the display window. If you wish
to use the TIMER to delay baking, you will first have to
set the correct time of day. However, if you want to
start the breadmaking operation now, it is not necessary to set the CLOCK.
This Breadmaker is designed with a Keep Warm
function that automatically begins when baking
is complete. The red light will continue to flash for
up to 60 minutes after baking is complete and will
keep bread warm during that time. At the end of the
hour, the Keep Warm cycle will end and the light
will remain on constantly, indicating the unit is still
plugged in. The bread should then be removed as
soon as possible to avoid getting soggy. You may
remove the Baking Pan any time during the Keep
Warm cycle. To turn off the Keep Warm feature
before the 60 minutes are up, simply press the
START/RESET button and hold it until the display
time clears.

To bake a Basic loaf of bread with a Regular
Crust, simply press the START/RESET Button.
However, you can choose a different setting for your
NOTE: The Keep Warm feature does not function for
the DOUGH/PASTA setting since baking is not
involved in this program. If you leave finished dough
in the unit over a period of time, it may over-rise and

on the pad. Each time
you press BREAD TYPE, the
arrow in the display window will point
to the next selection (i.e. Rapid Bake, Sweet
Bread, etc.) If you are using a recipe that calls for the
Basic, Rapid Bake, or Sweet
Bread setting, choose a
crust color by pressing the
CRUST COLOR button until the
arrow in the window lines up with either
“Regular” or “Dark.”

Press the START/RESET Button once until it
beeps and the red “on” indicator light comes on.
The flashing 12:00 AM will be replaced by, for example, 3:50, if you chose a recipe for the Basic Bread setting (regardless of whether you chose “Regular” or
“Dark” crust). It will count down the
remaining time in one-minute intervals
(3:49, 3:48, etc.) until the bread is done. When the
baking is complete, several beeps will sound to alert
you that the bread is ready and the red indicator light
will begin flashing. In addition, a flashing 12:00 AM
will reappear in the display screen.

This unit has a convenient Viewing Window so
that you may watch the progress of the bread as
it is mixed, kneaded, and baked. Occasionally, some
moisture may form in the window during the rising
cycle. If moisture forms, you may lift the lid to look
inside during the mixing and kneading stages,
however, DO NOT OPEN THE LID DURING THE
BAKING CYCLE (approximately the last hour) or
during the Super Rapid Bake setting as this may
cause the bread to underbake. Most of the moisture
should disappear during the baking cycle.

Setting The Timer
(For Delayed Completion)
Use the TIMER when you would like to delay the
completion of your bread or dough/pasta. This
feature allows you to delay bake time for up to 13
hours. For example, it lets you set the TIMER at
7 PM one evening so that you can wake to fresh
bread by 8 AM the following morning. NOTE: The
TIMER cannot be used with the Rapid Bake setting.
difficulty removing bread from the Baking Pan, slide
a flat rubber or plastic spatula along the sides of the
pan to loosen the loaf. Turn the pan over and shake
the loaf out. Allow the bread to cool before slicing.
If the Mixing Paddle remains in the bottom of your
loaf, allow the loaf to cool then use a plastic spoon
or rubber spatula to remove the paddle. Do not use
a knife or other sharp metal object as this will
scratch the non-stick coating on the Mixing Paddle.
To set the TIMER, follow these instructions:
Using The “Add-Ingredient”
Function
1
All settings, except for Rapid Bake, have a builtin “Add-Ingredient” function which signals with
beeps when it’s time to add ingredients such as
fruits or nuts. The beeps sound before kneading is
complete to let you know it’s time to add the
ingredients. The actual time of the beeps can vary
up to 5 minutes depending on the room temperature at the time when you started the bread making
program. The following chart can be used for

“0 Hr TIMER
been set for a delayed completion time which is
shorter than the actual bake time (for example 3:50 is
the bake time for Sweet Bread). Reset the TIMER for
a longer delayed completion time.
To cancel the TIMER function, press the TIMER
button and the green light will go out.
To check the completion time while the green
TIMER light is on, press the TIMER button
twice. To check the completion time while the red
light is on, press the TIMER button once.
When the actual breadmaking operation
begins, the green “timer” light will go out, the
red “on” light will come on, and total bake time (3:50
for Sweet Bread) will appear on the display. The bake
time will count down in one minute intervals. When
the end of the countdown is reached, a beeping signal will sound and your bread is complete. The red
light will now begin flashing to show the Breadmaker
has automatically activated the 60 minute “Keep
Warm” function.

Troubleshooting
Specific questions about the breadmaker functions
and problems with ingredients or recipes are
addressed in the “Need Help?” section beginning on
pg. 33.
● If there is an operational problem with the unit,
you may see a hyphen, colon, double hyphen
(- : --) message in the display window. This
means there is an operational/mechanical
malfunction. DO NOT USE THE UNIT. Unplug
the unit and contact your local service center for
repair. Call the toll-free number on the cover of
this booklet to ask for the location of the Black &
Decker service center nearest you.
● If the START/RESET button is pressed and the
word “HOT” appears in the display window, it
indicates that the unit has not cooled sufficiently
after baking to use immediately again. Open the
lid, remove the Baking Pan and allow the inside
of the unit to cool. Once the unit has cooled
sufficiently, pressing the START/RESET button
will immediately start the breadmaking
operation.

How To Use Your Breadmaker
Slicing & Storing Bread
For best results, allow loaves to cool on a wire rack
15 to 30 minutes before slicing. You may use an
electric knife (such as the Black & Decker Slice
Right™ Electric Knife Model EK300) for even slices.
Otherwise, use a sharp knife with a serrated blade.
For sandwich slices, place the loaf on its side
and slice across.
Store bread tightly covered (resealable style bags or
plastic containers work well) at room temperature
up to three days. If weather is hot and humid, store
in the refrigerator. For longer storage (up to one
month), place bread in a tightly covered container in
the freezer. If you store the bread in the refrigerator,
leave it out to bring it to room temperature before
serving. Since homemade bread has no preservatives, it tends to dry out and become stale faster
than commercially-made bread.
Leftover slightly hardened bread may be cut into
1/2” or 1” (13-25 mm) cubes and used in favorite
recipes to make croutons, bread pudding,
or stuffing.
Care & Cleaning
CAUTION: To avoid electric shock, unplug the unit
and allow the Breadmaker to cool before cleaning.
For best performance and maintenance, it is
recommended to clean the breadmaker after each
use as follows:
Outer Body and Oven Chamber:
Wipe the outer body of the unit with a damp cloth
or slightly dampened sponge. Use a damp sponge
or cloth to wipe out any flour, crumbs, or other
materials from the oven chamber.
Lid
This unit has a removable Lid
for easy cleaning. Open the Lid
halfway and pull it out towards
you. Wipe it with a damp cloth
or slightly dampened sponge.
DO NOT IMMERSE THE LID in
liquid. Clean the viewing
window with a moist soft cloth
(not paper towel), then be sure
to wipe it dry.
CAUTION: DO NOT clean
window with a commercial
glass cleaner!
When reinstalling the lid, be sure the slots on the lid
are fully inserted into the posts on the hinge of the
Breadmaker. This will prevent damage when
closing the lid. If you feel resistance when you try to
close the lid, stop immediately and reposition it.
The lid should close easily without any force being
applied.
Baking Pan and Mixing Paddle
Both the Baking Pan and Mixing Paddle have a nonstick coated surface. Do not use any harsh cleaners
or utensils on these parts as scratching may occur.
Over time, the non-stick surface may change in
color due to moisture and steam. This is normal
and has no effect on its use or quality.
Remove the Baking Pan and Mixing Paddle from the
oven chamber before cleaning. Wipe the outside of
the Baking Pan with a damp cloth. Be careful not to
damage the rubber seal under the shaft. NEVER
TOTALLY IMMERSE THE BAKING PAN in water.
You can hand wash the inside of the Baking Pan
with soapy water. The Mixing Paddle should be
removed from the shaft and the depressed area
under the Paddle cleaned. If the Mixing Paddle is
hard to remove from the Baking Pan after baking, fill
the Pan with hot water and let soak for 30 minutes
to an hour. Next, pour out the water, turn the Pan
over and wiggle the Paddle loose while holding the
winged coupling on the bottom of the Pan. Using a
toothpick or soft kitchen brush clean out any dough
left in the hole of the Paddle.
CAUTION: None of the breadmaker parts are
dishwasher-safe. DO NOT place the Baking Pan,
Removable Lid, or Mixing Paddle in the dishwasher.
Storing The Unit
Be sure to dry all parts before storing and wipe any
moisture from the Viewing Window. To prevent loss,
you may want to store the Mixing Paddle on the
shaft. Close the Lid and do not store anything on
top of the Lid.

Bread & Dough Ingredients
Salt
Many ingredients differ between Canada and the
United States. Cheese, confectioner’s (icing) sugar,
and cornmeal are just a few ingredients that vary
between the two countries. The major difference is
in flour.
● In very small amounts, salt adds flavor and
controls the rising action of the yeast, allowing
the dough to rise evenly. In high altitude areas,
additional salt may be needed to improve bread
results, however, keep in mind that too much
salt may prevent the bread from rising.
Flours
Canadian flours are milled from harder wheats so
breads can be successfully made from national
brands of both All-Purpose Flour and Bread Flour.
U.S. “All-Purpose Flour” will produce poor results
and should not be used with this unit. In the U.S., it
is important to use “Bread Flour” for tall, eventextured loaves.
● Bread flour is processed from hard wheat and is
high in the protein substance called gluten.
When mixed and kneaded, the gluten stretches
and incorporates air bubbles to produce a light,
fine-textured loaf. The stretchy resilience of
gluten makes this kind of flour most tolerant to
high temperatures, altitude, or high humidity.
● Canadian “All-Purpose Flour” is easy to find
and has been extensively tested with the
Canadian recipes included in this book with
good results. Canadian Bread Flour may also be
used with good results.
● Whole wheat and multi-grain flours contain
the bran and germ of the grain. Although higher
in fiber, these flours are lower in gluten than
bread flour. Rye flour does not contain any
gluten and therefore, must be used in combination with other flours. Whole wheat, multi-grain
and rye flour typically produce shorter, denser
loaves. Whole wheat flours vary greatly between
the United States and Canada. Be sure to
consult the recipes for tips on successful whole
wheat breads. The recipes have been developed
and tested using nationally available brands of
flour.
Liquid
● Milk—whole, 1% or 2% fat, skim, buttermilk, or
reconstituted (powdered) dry milk, and water
are the most commonly used liquids in bread
recipes. Milk provides a soft crust, and gives
bread a velvety texture. If your recipe calls for
powdered milk and you prefer to use fresh milk,
simply substitute the milk for the water and
powder. Water makes a crisper crust. Some
recipes call for juice to be added as a flavor
enhancer.
Sweeteners
● Natural sweeteners, such as white or brown
sugar, honey, and molasses help the yeast in a
recipe to grow. Sugar serves as food for the
yeast. Without sugar, the yeast will not grow and
the bread will not rise. The balance of sugar, salt,
and yeast is a very important part of the bread
making process. Sweeteners enhance the bread
flavor and the browning process. If you prefer to
use a sugar substitute, your baking results may
vary with the type and amount of sugar
substitute used.
Yeast
Fat
● Butter, margarine or vegetable shortening are
often interchangeable in most bread recipes. Fat
adds flavor and tenderness to the dough. Lowfat (diet) margarines are high in water content
but may be substituted with acceptable results
for people on a low fat diet.
● Yeast is a heat-sensitive plant that feeds on the
sugar in dough. Too much heat will kill the
yeast, too little will slow the yeast action. Check
the expiration date to be sure the yeast is fresh.
The recipes in this cookbook have been tested
with Bread Machine yeast. If you prefer to use
Traditional Dry yeast, Rapid Rise yeast or Quick
Rise yeast, you will have to increase yeast
amount by 1/4 teaspoon in your recipe; for
example - if your recipe called for 1 teaspoon of
yeast, increase the amount to 1-1/4 teaspoon.
See the test for yeast freshness on the next page.
16
Bread & Dough Ingredients
The following test can be used to determine
whether your yeast is stale and inactive:
A) Place 1/2 cup of lukewarm water into a
small cup or bowl.
B) Stir 1 tsp. of sugar into the water then
sprinkle 2 tsp. of yeast over the surface.
C) Place bowl or cup in a warm area and allow
to sit for 10 minutes undisturbed.
D) The mixture should foam and produce a
strong yeast aroma. If this does not occur,
fresh yeast should be purchased.
Tips For Getting The Best Results
● Use only fresh ingredients.
● In the U.S.: Use Bread Flour; In Canada: Use
All-Purpose Flour or Canadian Bread Flour.
● Use lukewarm water – not cold water.
● Measure ingredients accurately and level off
dry ingredients with the flat side of a knife or
metal spatula. (See page 8 for measuring
techniques).
Tips For Handling Dough
● When recipes call for a “lightly floured surface,”
use about 1 to 2 tablespoons flour on the
surface. You may want to lightly flour your
fingers or rolling pin for easy dough
manipulation.
● Recipes referring to a “greased/oiled” bowl call
for about 1 tablespoon oil or soft vegetable
shortening spread on the bottom and sides of
the bowl. You may prefer to use a non-stick
vegetable spray to “grease” the bowl to cut down
on added fats and calories.
● When you let dough “rest” and “rise” according
to a recipe, place it in a warm, draft-free area.
For best results, cover the dough with waxed
paper and a clean, dry towel. If the dough does
not double in size, it may not produce a tender
product.
● Dough may be wrapped in plastic and stored in
a freezer for later use. Bring the dough to room
temperature before using.

U.S. whole wheat flour results in a shorter, denser loaf than
Canadian whole wheat flours. You can substitute one cup of
white flour for one cup of whole wheat for a lighter, yet delicious
wheat taste!
* In U.S., use Bread Flour; in Canada, use either Bread Flour or
All-Purpose Flour.

Measure first 5 ingredients in the order listed into Baking Pan.
Insert Baking Pan into oven chamber,twist to secure.Close lid.
Select:Dough/Pasta Setting.
Press Start - There will be a 25-minute preheat delay
before mixing begins.
When cycle is complete,remove dough from machine to a lightly
floured surface. If necessary,knead in enough flour to make
dough easy to handle.
Divide dough in half and roll each half into a 10" x 8" inch
rectangle. Beginning at long end,roll up tightly as for jelly roll.
Pinch seams and ends to seal. Taper ends by gently rolling back
and forth.
Place each loaf,seam side down,on a greased baking sheet
sprinkled with cornmeal (optional). Lightly brush each loaf with
oil. Cover and let rise in warm,draft-free place until double in size,
20 to 30 minutes. With a sharp knife make 3 or 4 diagonal cuts
about 1/4 inch deep across the top of each loaf. Lightly beat egg
white and 1 tablespoon water; brush some of egg white mixture
over top of each loaf. Bake at 350° F (177° C) for 20 minutes.
Brush again with remaining egg white mixture.
Bake 5 to 10 minutes more or until done. Bread should sound
hollow when tapped. (For even browning when baking two
loaves,switch positions of sheets halfway through baking.)
Remove the breads from the sheets; cool on a wire rack.
Yield: Makes 2 loaves.

Questions About The
Breadmaker :
Q1 :
What do I do if the mixing paddle stays
in the loaf? Is this normal? How do I
remove the paddle?
The mixing paddle may stay in the loaf when the bread is
removed from the bread pan. This happens because the
crust forms around the paddle during the baking
process.
Allow the loaf to cool before removing the mixing paddle
(the inside of the loaf is VERY HOT- you may burn
yourself if you try to remove the paddle too soon.) When
the loaf has cooled, use a plastic spoon or rubber spatula
to remove the paddle. Gently insert the spoon/spatula
into the bottom of the loaf and loosen the crust from the
paddle. Pull the paddle out. DO NOT use a sharp object
(knife, metal utensil) as it will scratch the non-stick
coating on the mixing paddle.
Q2:
What do I do if the mixing paddle is hard to
remove from the baking Pan after baking?
Remove the Baking Pan from the unit and fill with hot water
allowing it to soak for 30 minutes to an hour. Next, pour out
the water, turn the Pan over and wiggle the Paddle loose
while holding the winged coupling on the bottom of the Pan.
Using a toothpick or soft kitchen brush clean out any dough
left in the hole of the Paddle.
Q3:
Is there any time that I should not use
the delayed start feature?
Yes, when the recipe calls for perishable ingredients such
as milk, cheese, buttermilk, or eggs. These foods should
not stay at room temperature for an extended period of
time. With some recipes, you may substitute powdered
milk.
Q4:
Can I open the lid while the breadmaker is
operating?
This breadmaker is designed with a window in the lid to
let you watch your bread’s progress. Quick checks are
fine in the early stages of operation and of course to add
ingredients when the beeper sounds. However, don’t
open the lid too frequently during operation as the
change in air temperature may cause the loaf to fall.
Avoid opening the lid once the baking period begins—the
last hour of the cycle. Sometimes condensation forms on
the window after initial mixing and kneading. It usually
disappears once the baking cycle starts so you should be
able to get a clear view of your rising loaf.
Q5:
Where is the OFF button?
Since the breadmaker shuts off its “processing”
automatically once the bread or dough cycle is complete
and the “Keeps Warm” cycle ends, there is no OFF button.
However, the power light will remain on until the unit is
unplugged or the Start/Reset button is pressed and held.
Q6:
If the power goes out while I’m in the
middle of a breadmaking cycle, will my
Breadmaker continue to process my bread
once the power comes back on?
The breadmaker will only finish making bread if the
power returns within 20 seconds. Unfortunately, if your
power outage is longer, you will have to discard the
unfinished bread and start the process from the
beginning.
Questions About
Ingredients/Recipes :
Q7:
When do I add raisins, nuts, etc. to the
bread?
This breadmaker has an “Add-Ingredient” function that
signals with an audible tone to let you know when you
may add raisins, nuts, caraway seeds, etc. (NOTE: The
time of the tone varies from one setting to another.
Consult the “Add-Ingredient” chart on page 10.) The
“Add-Ingredient” feature helps reduce the breaking up of
added foods . If you are using the Timer and it is more
convenient, you may add ingredients at the start.
Q8:
May I use a sugar substitute in place of
sugar?
Sugar is necessary for the yeast to produce a light loaf
with a good height. Results may vary with the type and
amount of sugar substitute used. If you are going to use
an artificial sweetener choose one that is aspartame
based rather than saccharin based.
Q9:
May I omit the salt or sugar from the
recipe?
No, both the sugar and salt play an important role in the
bread making process. Salt prevents the yeast from
over-reacting and the bread from over-rising. The
combination of sugar, salt, and yeast is a very important
part of the bread making process. Remember that the
total sugar and salt amounts are divided among all the
slices, so the amount of sugar and salt per serving is
small.

Q10:
When I make dough, it is very sticky and
difficult to work with. How can I handle it
more easily?
Q15:
What is gluten?
Gluten is the protein in flour that makes dough elastic
and allows it to stretch and expand. It gives your bread
structure. The amount of gluten varies from one flour to
another.
Dough may be somewhat sticky at the end of the dough
cycle. This is normal. For best results, turn it out of the
Baking Pan onto a floured surface, cover it and let it rest
for 10 minutes. Lightly flour the board and your hands
when handling the dough. This will make it easier to
shape and divide. Once shaped, the dough must be
baked in a conventional oven.
Q16:
Can I use my favorite bread recipes in my
bread machine?
Yes, but you will need to experiment to get the right
proportion of ingredients. Become familiar with the unit
and make several loaves of bread before you begin
experimenting. Never exceed a total amount of 4-2/3
cups (U.S) or 4 cups (Cdn.) dry ingredients (that includes
flours, oats, cornmeal, bran cereal, cracked wheat, etc.).
Use the recipes in this book to help determine the ratio of
dry ingredients to liquid and amounts of yeast, sugar, salt,
and shortening (or butter/margarine) to use.
Q11:
Can I bake products formed from
doughs in my microwave oven?
No, once shaped, the dough must be baked in a
conventional oven.
Q12:
How do I know when dough is ready to
bake?
Q17:
Why does some flour occasionally stick to
the side of the bread?
Dough should have doubled in size.
There are many factors that may affect whether a dough
mixes completely or ingredients stick to the sides:
• Dough may be too dry (ingredients may have been
measured incorrectly).
• Mixing Paddle was not placed correctly in the Baking
Pan. Be sure it is pushed securely onto the shaft.
• Baking Pan is not placed in the unit correctly. Be
sure to “lock” the Pan into place.
• Ingredients were not added in the recommended
order. It is very important to add ingredients in the
order listed in the recipe and to measure accurately.
Sometimes during the initial mixing period, small
amounts of flour and dry ingredients may get stuck to the
sides of the Baking Pan. When the loaf rises and bakes,
the dry ingredients may stick to the bread. Once the loaf
is removed from the Baking Pan and has cooled 10-15
minutes, the dry ingredients may be scraped off the loaf
easily with a knife.
Q13:
How does the pasta come out of the
Breadmaker?
This breadmaker includes a setting to make dough for
pasta. However, once the pasta dough is completed, it
must be removed and shaped just like any dough must
be rolled, braided, or otherwise shaped. You may use a
pasta maker or pasta shaper (there are special pans—
similar to muffin tins—to shape ravioli and some other
kinds of filled pasta) to shape your pasta. Pasta dough
does not need to rise, therefore it can be removed from
the breadmaker according to the instructions in the
recipes, see page 32.
Q14:
Why do the loaves vary in height and
weight? The whole wheat and multi-grain
breads are frequently shorter. Am I doing
something wrong?
No, it is normal for whole wheat and multi-grain breads
to be shorter and denser than basic white breads. Whole
wheat and rye flours are heavier than white flour,
therefore, they don’t rise as much during the bread
making process. They also typically have added
ingredients, such as oats, bran, nuts and raisins, which
contribute to the shorter height and denser texture.
A 7-8 inch (19-21 cm) height for 100% whole wheat
bread and other multi-grain breads is considered normal
while 8-9 inches (20-23 cm) is normal for white or other
basic breads.
Q18:
Can I make cakes and quick breads (breads
that do not use yeast) in my breadmaker?
No, the breadmaker is designed to mix, knead, and bake
yeast breads. It is not recommended for use with
non-yeast foods, such as cakes, cookie dough or quick
breads. These foods use leavening agents (baking
powder, and/or baking soda) that react best with short
mixing and baking. If you are looking for something to
satisfy your sweet tooth, there are several recipes in this
book for sweet breads.

Q19:
Why does my bread rise and then collapse
or form craters?
Q23:
Why did I end up with a short, dense,
doughy bread? Why didn’t the bread rise?
Your bread may be rising too fast. To decrease the rate of
rising, try reducing the amount of sugar, increasing the
amount of salt slightly, or reducing the amount of yeast.
Refer to the “Trouble Shooting Guide” on pg. 12 for
correct adjustments.
The most common reason for unrisen bread is the yeast.
Maybe you forgot to add the yeast. Perhaps the yeast was
bad or expired (always check expiration dates). Also, if
the mixing wasn’t complete, you may have rising
problems. Did you check to see if the mixing paddle was
moving at the beginning of your cycle?
Q20:
Is it important for ingredients to be at
room temperature before adding them to
the Baking Pan?
Q24:
What will happen if I leave the bread in the
Baking Pan after baking?
This unit has a 60-minute “Keep Warm” cycle that lets
you leave the bread in the pan for up to an hour after
baking is completed. Once that warming cycle is over, it’s
best to remove the bread immediately or the bottom of
your loaf will absorb moisture and become soggy. The
soggy part of the bread will not be as tasty when it dries
out and it will go stale quickly. The sides of the bread
may also become moist and mushy.
No, as long as ingredients are not extremely cold or hot.
Milk, eggs, butter/margarine, and yeast can be added
directly from the refrigerator with good results. When a
recipe calls for water, use lukewarm water since it’s easy
to get from the tap.
Q21:
Which kind of yeast is the best to use?
Yeast specially packaged for Bread Machines, Traditional
Dry Yeast, Rapid Rise, or Quick Rise Yeast, can all be used
with good results. The most important thing is to be sure
the expiration date is not up. All the recipes in this
cookbook were developed using Bread Machine Yeast.
If you prefer to use Traditional, Quick Rise or Rapid Rise
Yeast, increase the amount of yeast you use in the recipe
by 1/4 teaspoon.
Q22:
Sometimes when I cut my bread, it’s too
sticky and it falls apart or it starts to mash
down and won’t slice cleanly. What can I
do?
If your bread is sticky or mashes down, it may be too hot!
Be sure to allow 15 to 30 minutes for your bread to cool
before slicing. Place finished bread on a wire cooling
rack to let air circulate around it. You may want to try
using an electric knife to slice bread instead of cutting it
manually. An electric knife has blades that slide back
and forth to let you slice straight through bread and
avoid mashing it down by putting pressure on the top of
the loaf.
