Introduction
The smell of homemade bread
wafting around the home is one of
those great smells. Bread, fresh out
of the oven, with melting butter is a
memorable taste sensation. The
Morphy Richards automatic
breadmaker can create that
experience every morning.
There's very little effort on the part
of the baker, because the
breadmaker is a sophisticated
appliance with a computer memory
that does all the work for you.
It’s as simple as one-two-three.
1 Put in the ingredients.
2 Select programme from the menus
and press start.
3 Wait for your bread.
But don't stop at baking bread in
this appliance.
Besides being able to do all kinds
of speciality breads, including
wholewheat, you can also prepare
doughs for bread rolls, pizza, cake
and jam. Everything is easy and
tastes homemade - because it is.
Before First Use
Before first use, please take a few
minutes to read this instruction
book and to find a place to keep it
handy for reference. Pay particular
attention to the safety instructions.
1 Carefully unpack the breadmaker
and remove all packaging
materials.
2 Remove any dust that may have
accumulated during packing.
3 Wipe the baking pan, kneading
blade and outside surface of the
breadmaker with a clean, damp
cloth. The bread pan is non-stick
coated. Do not use scouring pads
or any abrasives on any part of the
breadmaker.
4 For first time, use oil, butter or
margarine to grease the bread pan
and bake empty for about 10
minutes (select the Extrabake
programme).
5 Clean once more.
6 Place the kneading blade on the
axle in the baking pan.
During manufacturing, it is
necessary to lightly grease some
parts of the appliance. This may
result in the unit emitting some
vapour when first used, this is
normal.
About This
Breadmaker
• It has two settings to make a small
680g (1.5lb) or large 907g (2lb) loaf
(approximate weight - depends on
recipe).
• A Fruit and Nut beep signals when
extra ingredients can be added so
they don’t get chopped by the
kneading blade.
• The 1.5lb setting can be used to
make a 1lb loaf for some of the
recipes.
About the Recipies
The recipes in this booklet have
been thoroughly tested to ensure
best results. Recipes have been
created by home economists
specifically for this machine and
may not produce acceptable
results in other similar machines.
• Always add ingredients in the order
they are listed in the recipe.
• Accurate measuring of ingredients
is vital. Do not use larger amounts.
Programme
Descriptions
1 Basic white (3:00 and 2:53)
For white and brown bread. Also
for flavoured breads with added
herbs and raisins.
2 French (3:50 and 3:40)
For the baking of light weight
bread, such as french bread which
has a crisper crust and light
texture.
3 Wholewheat (3:40 and 3:32)
For the baking of bread containing
significant amounts of wholewheat.
This setting has longer preheat
time to allow the grain to soak up
the water and expand. It is not
advised to use the delay timer as
this can produce poor results.
Wholewheat usually produces a
crispy thick crust.
For details of other Morphy Richards products, please see our website:
4 Cake (1:40)
This setting will mix ingredients and
then bake for a preset time. It is
required to mix two groups of
ingredients in bowls before adding
to the breadmaker (see cake
recipes).
5 Sweet (2:55 and 2:50)
For the baking of sweet type bread
which gives a crisper crust than on
basic setting. The crisper crust is
produced by the sugar ‘burning’.
6 Fastbake I (1:10)
For preparation of a 1.5lb white loaf
in a reduced time period. Loaves
made on this setting can be shorter
and the texture more moist.
7 Fastbake II (1:15)
For preparation of a 2lb white loaf
in a reduced time period. Loaves
made on this setting can be shorter
and the texture more moist.
8 Dough (1:30)
This setting only makes the dough
and will not bake the final bread.
Remove the dough and shape it to
make bread rolls, pizza, etc. Any
dough can be prepared on this
setting. Do not exceed 1kg (2lb) of
combined ingredients.
9 Jam (1:20)
Use this setting for making jam
from fresh fruits and marmalade
from Seville oranges. Do not
increase the quantity or allow the
recipe to boil over the pan into the
baking chamber. Should this
happen, stop the machine
immediately. Remove the pan
carefully, allow to cool a little and
clean thoroughly.
10 Speciality (2:50)
For bread types that are required in
a shorter time. Bread baked on this
setting is usually smaller with a
dense texture.
11 Sandwich (3:00 and 2:55)
This is to bake light texture bread
but with a softer but thicker crust.
12 Extra bake (1:00)
This setting is bake only and can
be used to increase the baking
time on selected settings. This is
especially useful to help ‘set’ jams
and marmalade. When started, the
default time is 1 hour (1:00) and
counts down in 1 minute intervals.
You will have to manually switch
this off, by pressing the stop
5
button, when you have completed
the extrabake process. It is advised
that you check the condition of the
bread or jam after 10 minutes and
at 10 minute intervals. Pressing p
takes the display to 0:10, (10
minutes), and pressing again
increases by 1 minute intervals,
0:10, 0:11, 0:12 etc. to a maximum
of 59 minutes.
When the button q is pressed, the
display will show 0:59 minutes, and
pressing again will decrease the
time by 1 minute intervals, 0:59,
0:58, 0:57 etc.
Do not use the extrabake
programme for more than 1 hour,
as over heating of the product may
occur.
Using Your
Breadmaker
1 Take out the pan
Open the lid and remove the pan
by lifting the handle, turning anticlockwise and lifting out. Place on
the work surface. It is important
that the pan is filled with
ingredients outside the machine so
that any accidental spillage is not
ignited by the heating elements.
2 Attach the blade
Attach the kneading blade to the
shaft by pushing on. Ensure the
blade is in the upright position
before adding ingredients shown
on page 9.
3 Measure ingredients
Measure the ingredients required
and add them all into the pan in the
order listed. See later section
(‘Measuring your ingredients’).
• When adding the yeast to the
baking pan, take care that the
yeast does not come into contact
with the water or any other liquid,
as it will start to activate
immediately.
• Use tepid water 21-28oC.
4 Put pan back in
Place the baking pan back in the
breadmaker, turning clockwise to
lock into place. Close the lid.
5 Plug in
Plug into the power supply. The
breadmaker will automatically be
set to basic bread menu and
normal time.
6
UK Helpline 0844 871 0944
for 15 minutes, then turn the pan
upside down and tap the bread
from the pan onto a rack to cool.
Fill the pan with warm water
immediately to prevent the blade
from sticking to the shaft.
• Everytime you press a button you
will hear a beep to confirm.
6 Select programme
Choose the desired setting from
the list by pressing the Menu
button.
• Occasionally the kneading blade
will stay in the loaf. Wait until the
loaf is cool and then remove the
blade with a wooden or plastic
utensil to avoid damage to the nonstick surface.
7 Select weight
Press Loaf size button to choose
between small or large.
8 Select colour
Choose desired crust colour by
pressing Colour button.
16 Always unplug the appliance
after use.
9 Select the delay time
If you wish the bread to be ready
later, set the time delay now, as
described in next section.
10 Start
Press the Start Stop button to start
the machine. The remaining time
will count down in one minute
increments.
11 Progress
The breadmaker will automatically
proceed through the programmed
stages as shown in the ‘Baking
cycle times’ section. If the
breadmaker has a programme
selected that has a second
kneading process, beeps sound to
inform that fruits and/or nuts may
be added.
12 Finish
When the programme is completed
and the bread is baked, the display
shows 0:00 and the beeper will
sound.
14 Remove the food
Press Stop. Open the lid.
WARNING: Use oven gloves
when removing the baking pan
and take care as it is very hot.
15 Turn out the bread
Allow the bread to cool in the pan
Replacement Parts 0844 873 0710
Room temperature note
The breadmaker will work well in a
wide range of temperatures, but
there could be a difference in loaf
size between a very warm room
and a very cold room. We
recommend the room temperature
should be between 15oC and 34oC.
Using the timer
• It is possible that steam will escape
through the vents during baking,
this is normal.
13 Keep warm
The keep warm function will
circulate hot air for a further 60
minutes on most settings (see
‘Baking cycle times’ section). For
best results, remove the baking
pan and loaf within this period or
when the initial programme is
completed. 10 beeps will be heard
when the keep warm period is
finished.
• Do not open the lid whilst the
breadmaker is operating as this will
affect the quality of the bread,
especially it’s ability to rise
properly. Only open the lid when
the recipe needs you to add
additional ingredients, see recipes.
Use the timer when you want the
bread ready later, or in the morning.
A maximum of 13 hours can be set.
Check if function is available by
consulting ‘Baking cycle times’
section. Do not use this function
with recipes that use perishable
ingredients such as eggs, fresh
milk, sour cream, or cheese.
1 Decide when you want the bread to
be ready and calculate the
difference in time between now and
then. For example, if you want a
loaf at 8am, and it is now 7.30pm,
the difference is 12 1/2 hours.
2 Enter this time by pressing ‘Time
▼’ and ‘Time ▲’ buttons. Arrows
will move time up or down in 10minute increments. After you have
pressed Start, the colon (:) will
flash.
• If you have selected the wrong
time, press stop for 2 seconds. The
timer will go back to the
programme time, repeat step 1 and
2.
Ireland Helpline 1800 409 119
3 The timer delay is up to a
maximum of 13 hours. This is when
the bread will be ready to remove
from the machine, see page 8, item

or 2.5cm (1 inch) cubes and used
in favourite recipes to make
croutons, bread pudding, or
stuffing.
Drop down blade
Beeper
The beeper sounds:
• when pressing any button;
• during the second kneading cycle
of certain programmes to indicate
that cereals, fruit, nuts or other
ingredients can be added;
• when the programme finishes;
• when keep warm finishes.
Power interruption
After a brief power supply failure
• if the programme has not yet
reached rise 1, press start and the
programme will continue using the
automatic repeat function;
• if it has gone beyond this point, the
process must be started from the
very beginning. The ingredients will
have to be discarded and you must
start again with fresh ingredients.
Slicing and storing
bread
For best results, place bread on a
wire rack and allow to cool for 1530 minutes before slicing.
Use an electric knife or a sharp
knife with a serrated blade for even
slices.
Store unused bread tightly covered
in a plastic bag at room
temperature for up to three days. If
weather is hot and humid, store in
the refrigerator overnight.
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 1.3 cm (half inch)
The breadmaker has a unique
kneading blade which folds down
flat at the end of the 2nd rise cycle,
this ‘punches’ the dough ready for
the final rise 3 and allows the blade
to fold flat to minimise the hole size
left in the base of the baked loaf.
Ensure the blade is in the upright
position before adding the
ingredients. If it falls over, lift it back
to the upright position.
Clean the blade every time after
use, ensure the blade rotates freely
on the spindle before each use,
you can add a little sunflower oil to
the joint before putting it back into
the pan. This will then be ready for
next use.
Care and cleaning
1 WARNING: To prevent electrical
shock, unplug the unit before
cleaning.
2 Wait until the breadmaker has
cooled.
• IMPORTANT: Do not immerse or
splash either the body or lid in any
liquid as this may cause damage
and/or electric shock.
3 Exterior: Wipe the lid and outer
body of the unit with a damp cloth
or slightly dampened sponge.
4 Interior: Use a damp cloth or
sponge to wipe the interior of the
breadmaker.
5 Baking pan: Clean the baking pan
with warm water, soap is not
necessary. Avoid scratching the
non-stick surface. Dry it thoroughly
before placing it back in the baking
chamber.
• Do not wash the baking pan,
measuring cup, spoon or kneading
blades in the dishwasher.
• Do not soak the baking pan for
long periods, as this could interfere
with the working of the drive shaft.
• If the kneading blade becomes
stuck in the bread pan, pour hot
water over it and allow to soak for
For details of other Morphy Richards products, please see our website:
30 minutes.
This will enable you to remove the
kneading blade more easily.
• Be sure the appliance is completely
cooled before storing away.
Do not use any of these when
cleaning
• Paint thinner
• Benzine
• Steel wool pads
• Polishing powder
• Chemical dustcloth
Special care for the non-stick finish
Avoid damaging the coating. Do
not use metal utensils such as
spatulas, knives or forks.
The coating may change colour
after long use, this is only caused
by moisture and steam and will not
affect the performance of the unit
or quality of your bread.
The hole in the centre of the
kneading blade should be cleaned,
then add a drop of cooking oil and
replace it on the spindle in the
baking pan. This will prevent the
blade sticking.
• Keep all air vents and openings
clear of dust.
Storing the unit
Be sure to dry all parts before
storing, including wiping any
moisture from the viewing window.
Close the lid and do not store
anything on top of the lid.
Understanding
baking
It is often said that cooking is an
art, relying on the creativity of the
chef, while baking bread is much
more of a science. This means that
the process of combining flour,
water and yeast results in a
reaction that produces bread. You
have to remember that when the
ingredients combine with each
other they produce a specific
result. Read the following
information carefully to gain a
better understanding of the
importance each ingredient plays in
the breadmaking proces
7
Important note on
flours
Flours, while visibly similar, can be
very different by virtue of how they
were grown, milled, stored, etc. You
may find that you will have to
experiment with different brands of
flour to help you make that perfect
loaf.
Storage is also very important, as
all flours should be kept in an
airtight container.
All purpose flour/plain flour
All purpose Flour is a blend of
refined hard and soft wheat flours
especially suitable for making cake.
This type of flour should be used
for recipes in the cake/quick bread
section.
Strong white flour/bread flour
Bread flour is a high gluten/protein
flour that has been treated with
conditioners that give dough a
greater suitability for kneading.
Bread Flour typically has a higher
gluten concentration than All
purpose flour; however, depending
on different milling practices, this
may vary. Strong plain flour or
bread flour are recommended for
use with this breadmaker.
Whole wheat flour/wholemeal
flour
Whole wheat flour/wholemeal flour
is milled from the entire wheat
kernel which contains the bran and
germ and makes it heavier and
richer in nutrients than white flour.
Breads made with this flour are
usually smaller and heavier than
white loaves. To overcome this,
whole wheat flour/wholemeal flour
can be mixed with Bread flour or
strong plain flour to produce a
high, light textured bread.
Self-raising flour
Self-raising Flour contains
unnecessary leavening ingredients
that will interfere with bread and
cake making. It is not
recommended for use.
Bran
Bran (unprocessed) & Wheat Germ
are the coarse outer portions of the
wheat or rye grains separated from
flour by sifting or bolting. They are
often added in small quantities to
bread for nutritional enrichment,
heartiness and flavour. They are
also used to enhance the texture of

bread.
will not react properly with them.
Oatmeal
Oatmeal comes from rolled or
steel-cut oats. They are used
primarily to enhance flavour and
texture.
Salt
Salt is necessary to balance the
flavour of breads and cakes, as
well as for the crust colour that
develops during baking. Salt also
limits the growth of yeast, so the
amounts shown in the recipes
should not be increased. It may be
reduced for dietary reasons,
however, your baking may suffer.
Other ingredients
Yeasts (active dry yeast)
Yeast, through a fermentation
process, produces gas (carbon
dioxide) necessary to make the
bread rise. Yeast must be able to
feed on sugar and flour
carbohydrates in order to produce
this gas. Fast action granular yeast
is used in all recipes that call for
yeast.
There are basically three different
types of yeast available: fresh,
traditional dry active and fast
action. It is recommended that fast
action yeast is used. Fresh or
compressed cake yeast are not
recommended as they will produce
poor results. Store yeast according
to manufacturer’s instructions.
Ensure your yeast is fresh by
checking it’s expiration date. Once
a package or can of yeast is
opened, it is important that the
remaining contents be immediately
resealed and refrigerated as soon
as possible for future use. Often
bread or dough, which fails to rise,
is due to stale yeast being used.
The following test can be used to
determine whether your yeast is
stale and inactive:
1 Place half a cup of lukewarm water
into a small bowl or cup.
2 Stir 1 tsp. of sugar into the water
then sprinkle 2 tsp. of yeast over
the surface.
3 Place bowl or cup in a warm area
and allow to sit for 10 minutes
undisturbed.
4 The mixture should foam and
produce a strong yeast aroma. If
this does not occur, discard
mixture and start again with
another packet of dried yeast.
Sugar
Sugar is important for the colour
and flavour of breads. It is also
food for the yeast as it is part of
the fermentation process. Artificial
sweeteners cannot be used as a
substitute for sugar as the yeast

Liquids/milk
Liquids such as milk or a
combination of powdered milk and
water, can be used when making
bread. Milk will improve flavour,
provide a velvety texture and soften
the crust, while water alone will
produce a crispier crust. Some
liquids call for juice (orange, apple,
etc) to be added as a flavour
enhancer.
Note: For most recipes, we suggest
the use of dry skimmed milk.
Eggs
Eggs add richness and a velvety
texture to bread doughs and cakes.
Sunflower oil
Sunflower oil ‘shortens’ or
tenderises the texture of yeast
breads. Butter or margarine can be
used as a substitute. If butter or
margarine is used direct from the
refrigerator, it should be softened
for easier blending during the
mixing cycle.
Baking powder
Baking powder is a raising agent
used in cakes. This type of raising
agent does not require rising time
before baking as the chemical
reaction works when liquid
ingredients are added.
Bicarbonate of soda
Bicarbonate of soda is another
raising agent not to be confused or
substituted for baking powder. It
also does not require rising time
before baking as the chemical
reaction works during the baking
process.
Vitamin C - Ascorbic acid
Ascorbic acid helps improve the
volume of the loaf. Vitamin C
powder or tablets should be used.
You can also use the orange flavour
vitamin C supplement tablet.
These are usually marked in mg
(milligrams) strength. If they are
200mg tablets, use 1/2 tablet for
Ireland Helpline 1800 409 119
100mg dose. The tablet must be
crushed between 2 spoons to
create a powder. If using powder,
refer to the packet instructions, but
a 1/4 of a teaspoon is usually
recommended.
Measuring
Ingredients
The key and most important step
when using your breadmaker is
measuring your ingredients
precisely and accurately. It is
extremely important to measure
each liquid and dry ingredient
properly or it could result in a poor
or unacceptable baking result. The
ingredients must also be added
into the baking pan in the order in
which they are given in each
recipe. Liquid and dry
measurements are done somewhat
differently and are as follows:
Liquid measurements
Use the cup provided A. When
reading amounts, the measuring
cup must be placed on a horizontal
flat surface and viewed at eye level
(not on an angle). The liquid level
line must be aligned to the mark of
measurement. A ‘guesstimate’ is
not good enough as it could throw
out the critical balance of the
recipe.
Dry measurements
Dry measurements (especially
flours) must be done using the
measuring cup provided. The
measuring cup is based on the
American standard 8 fluid oz cup British cup is 10 fluid oz. A
Dry measuring must be done by
gently spooning the ingredients
into the measuring cup and then
once filled, levelling off with a knife.
Scooping or tapping a measuring
cup will pack the ingredients and
you will end up with more than is
required. This extra amount could
affect the balance of the recipe. Do
not sift the flour, unless stated.
When measuring small amounts of
dry or liquid ingredients (ie yeast,
sugar, salt, powdered milk, honey,
molasses), the measuring spoon
which is provided must be used.
Measurements must be level, not
heaped, as this small difference
could throw out the critical balance
of the recipe.
DO NOT USE NORMAL KITCHEN
TEASPOONS OR
TABLESPOONS.
A
Hints on measuring ingredients
• The cup is marked in various
‘volume measurement’ scales. The
recipes in this book use the ‘cup’
volume which is based on the
‘American’ cup of 8floz and is
conveniently marked in 1/16
divisions.
B
• If you prefer to use weight (gms) as
a measurement, fill and weigh the
required number of cups and
record this conversion. ie: 2 cups =
xx gms 3 cups = xxx gms
You must use a good quality set of
accurate scales, we prefer to use
the ‘cup’ measure for consistency
and accuracy.
B
A conversion table is provided on
page 18.
• There are 2 spoons provided to
cover all combinations of quantities
in the recipes B:
Tablespoon (tbsp) and teaspoon
(tsp).
For 1/2 teaspoon measurements,
use the 1/4 tsp twice.
1 tsp = 5 millilitres
1 tbsp = 3 tsp = 15 millilitres
Hint: measure dry ingredients first
with the tablespoon, then wet (oil)
last.
Your breadmaker produces
delicious baked goods with ease.
This machine requires only that you
carefully follow the recipe
instructions. In basic cooking,
normally ‘a pinch of this and a
dash of that’ is fine, but not for
breadmakers. Using an automatic
breadmaker requires you accurately
measure each ingredient for best
results.
Ingredient
temperatures
All ingredients, including the
machine and pan, and especially
liquids (water or milk), should be
warmed to room temperature
21°C (70°F).
If ingredients are too cold, below
10°C (50°F), they will not activate
For details of other Morphy Richards products, please see our website:
the yeast. Extremely hot liquids,
above 40°C (104°F), may kill the
yeast.
Creating your own
yeast breads
With the breadmaker, even the
most inexperienced baker can
achieve the satisfying experience of
baking a loaf of bread. All of the
mystery and hard work is gone.
Inside this talented machine with
an electronic brain, the dough is
mixed, kneaded, proofed and
baked without you being present.
The automatic breadmaker can
also just prepare the dough, and
when it's ready, you shape, allow to
rise and bake in a conventional
oven. The recipes on the following
pages are ‘tailored’ for this
breadmaker. Each recipe features
ingredients that best compliment a
particular loaf of bread, and each
was tested in our machines. It is
extremely important not to exceed
the amounts of flour specified in
each of the recipes or else it could
result in unsatisfactory baking
performance. When creating your
own yeast bread recipes or baking
an old favourite, use the recipes in
this cookbook as a guide for
converting portions from your
recipe to your breadmaker.

Special glazes for
yeast breads
Give your just baked bread a
professional finish. Select one of
the following special glazes to
enhance your bread.
Egg glaze
Beat 1 large egg and 1 tablespoon
of water together, brush
generously. Note: apply only to
doughs before baking.
Melted butter crust
Brush melted butter over just
baked bread for a softer, tender
crust.
Milk glaze
For a softer, shiny crust, brush just
baked bread with milk or cream.
Sweet icing glaze
Mix 1 cup of sifted icing sugar with
1 or 2 tablespoons of milk to make
a glaze consistency and drizzle
over raisin bread or sweet breads.
Poppy/Sesame/Caraway
seed/Oatmeal
Sprinkle your choice of these
seeds generously over just glazed
bread.
Other tips
• Place all recipe ingredients into the
baking pan so that yeast is not
touching any liquid.
• After completing the process of
making dough in your breadmaker,
typically when letting dough rise
outside the breadmaker, allow 30
minutes or until dough doubles in
size. Dough should be lightly
greased and covered with grease
proof paper and a dry towel. It
should be placed in a warm area
free from draughts.
• The DOUGH setting is great for
mixing, kneading and proofing,
allowing dough to rise. Use the
automatic breadmaker to prepare
this dough so all you need to do is
shape and bake it according to
your recipe.
Recipes
All of the following recipes use this
same general method:
1 Measure ingredients into the
baking pan.
• When recipes call for a ‘lightly
floured surface,’ use 1 or 2
tablespoons of flour on the surface.
You may want to lightly flour your
fingers or rolling pin for easy dough
manipulation.
2 Use tepid water 21-28oC.
• When you let dough ‘rest’ and ‘rise’
according to a recipe, place it in a
warm, draught-free area. If the
dough does not double in size, it
may not produce a tender product.
5 Push the start button.
• If the dough you are rolling shrinks
back, let it rest covered for a few
minutes before rolling again.
7 Remove the bread from the baking
pan (and the kneading blade from
the bread if necessary).
• Dough may be wrapped in plastic
and stored in a freezer for later use.
Bring the dough to room
temperature before using.
8 Allow to cool before slicing.
• After 5 minutes of kneading, open
the lid and check the dough
consistency. The dough should
form a soft, smooth ball. If too dry,
add liquid. If too wet, add flour (1/2
to 1 tablespoon at a time).
3 Insert the baking pan securely into
the unit, close the lid.
4 Select the appropriate bread
setting.
6 When the bread is done, remove
the pan from the unit using oven
mitts.
This method is modified by notes,
if applicable, at the end of each
recipe.
These recipes have been
developed using Allinson flours and
Easybake Allinson yeast.
• When using honey, malt extract,
golden syrup or treacle, coat the
spoon or cup with oil first, this will
prevent these ingredients from
sticking to the spoon or cup.
• Humidity can cause problems,
therefore humidity and high
altitudes require adjustments. For
high humidity, add an extra
tablespoon of flour if consistency is
not right. For high altitudes,
decrease yeast amount by
approximately 1/4 teaspoon, and
decrease sugar and/or water or
milk slightly.

Important
The cakes produced in this breadmaker will not rise to
fill the pan completely, they will be approximately 55mm
(2'') tall. The standard cake is a Madeira type which is
moist, rich and dense in texture. Adjustments to the
recipe may be required for personal taste - less butter
and sugar to reduce the richness, less water and/or
eggs to reduce moisture.
Variations
Cherries - 1/2 cup cherries halved (wash thoroughly to
remove the excess syrup) and allow them to drain and
dry on absorbent paper;
or mixed fruit - 1/2 cup or chocolate chips - 1/4 cup
Add any of these variations into the breadpan last, on
top of the other ingredients.

Gluten free breads are yeast leavened breads, where
Gluten (a protein part of the wheat, also found in Oats,
Barley and Rye) is removed.
People who cannot tolerate Gluten in their diet (known
as Coeliacs) can obtain this flour on prescription. It is
found in most high street chemists and health food
stores, however, it is expensive!
Morphy Richards has developed these recipes using
one particular brand: ‘Nutricia Glutafin’ Gluten free white
flour mix and fibre mix. Other brands have not been
tested, therefore Morphy Richards cannot list these
brands.
Contact the Morphy Richards Helpline
(0844 871 0944 in the UK, and 1800 409 119 in the
Republic of Ireland) for further recipes when available.
The bread is excellent on the day it is made, but with all
Gluten free breads when one day old or more it will
need ‘refreshing’. 2 slices placed in a microwave for 1015 seconds will usually do this. Any remaining fresh
bread can be frozen for storage. To store Gluten free
bread (or any bread) slice the bread, re-assemble the
slices back together, wrap the assembled loaf in
aluminium foil and place it in a plastic bag. Store in the
freezer until required. The slices will ‘snap’ apart when
required and quickly thaw, use the microwave if
required.
3 Combine groups 1 and 2 together until mixed.
4 Pour mixture into breadpan.
Bread mixes
Use the ‘basic white setting’
Follow the information for bread mixes on the bread mix
packet. There are two types of bread mixes currently
available.
1 Just add water
These mixes are complete and they have all the
necessary ingredients provided, even the yeast. You only
add water.
IMPORTANT: Follow the packet instructions as some
mixes contain more than the normal amount of yeast,
which could over rise in the pan. Use 3 cups of mix
maximum.
These mixes are more prone to over-rising and
collapsing when the weather is hot and humid. Since
these mixes are complete, we cannot advise how to
adjust, as with our own recipes. Bake in the coolest part
of the day, use water between 21-28oC.
2 Just add flour and water
These mixes have the necessary ingredients in separate
sachets. Just add water and flour. Remember strong
white bread flour is required. A packet of this mix will
produce a 500g loaf, just over 1 lb.

Liquids, flour and others
We recommend that you use the
cup provided for all recipes for
consistency between brands and
types of flour.
The cup provided is based on the
American cup measurement of 8
Floz.
The tablespoon and teaspoon
provided are required to measure
the smaller quantities. A set of
British standard spoons with
‘scrape’ level tops can be used.
For people who prefer to use their
own measuring utensils, alternative
measurements are in millilitres (ml)
and cubic centimetres (cc) for liquid
measurement and grams (gm) for
weight of flour, sugar and fruit.
Do not use a kitchen tablespoon
or teaspoon as they are
inaccurate.
Note: A good quality set of
accurate kitchen scales with
divisions and accuracy to 2 grams
are required.
A measuring jug with divisions of 2
ml is required.

Need Help?
Questions about
general performance
and operation
Question 1
What should I do if the kneading
blade comes out with the bread?
Remove it with a pair of plastic
tongs before slicing the bread.
Since the blade can be
disconnected from the pan, it is not
a malfunction if it comes out in
your bread.
Question 2
Why does my bread sometimes
have some flour on the side
crust?
In some cases, the flour mix may
remain on the corners of the
baking pan. When this happens, it
usually can be eaten or simply trim
off that portion of the outer crust
with a sharp knife.
Question 3
Why isn't the dough mixing? I
can hear the motor running.
The Kneading Blade or baking pan
may not be inserted properly. Make
sure the pan is facing the right way
and that it has ‘clicked’ and seated
into the bottom of the breadmaker.
Question 4
How long does it take to make
bread?
Timings for each setting are
outlined earlier.
Question 5
Why can't I use the timer when
baking with fresh milk?
The milk will spoil if left sitting in
the machine too long. Fresh
ingredients such as eggs and milk
should never be used with the
delayed timer feature.
Question 6
Why do I have to add the
ingredients in a certain
order?
This allows the breadmaker to mix
the ingredients in the most efficient
manner possible. It also serves to
keep the yeast from combining
with the liquid before the dough is
started to mix, which is essential
on the time delay.
Question 7
When setting the timer for
morning, why does the machine
make sounds late at night?
The machine must start operation
when the time delay reaches the
start time of the programme so that
the bread will be ready. These
sounds are made by the motor
when kneading the dough. It is a
normal operation, not a
malfunction.
Question 8
The kneading blade is stuck in
the bread pan. After baking, how
do I get it out?
The kneading blade may ‘stick’ in
place after baking. Running warm
or hot water over the blade should
loosen it enough to be removed. If
still stuck, soak in hot water for
about 30 minutes.
Question 9
Can I wash the baking pan in the
dishwasher?
No. The baking pan and kneading
blade must be washed by hand.
Question 10
What will happen if I leave the
finished bread in the baking pan?
Whilst still in the breadmaker for
the first hour after baking is
complete, the bread ’keeps warm’
to prevent it becoming ‘soggy’.
Leaving the bread in the
readmaker after the keep warm
period may result in a ‘soggy’ loaf
of bread as excess steam
(moisture) would not be able to
escape.
Remove and allow to cool on a
wire rack after baking to prevent
this.
Question 11
Why did the dough only partially
mix? Why didn't it mix
completely?
The dough may be too heavy or
dry. Also, the kneading blade or
baking pan may not be inserted
properly. Ingredients may have
been added in the wrong order.
Question 12
Why didn't the bread rise?
The yeast could be bad, past it’s
sell by date or possibly no yeast
was added at all. Also, if the mixing
was not complete, rising problems
could develop.
For details of other Morphy Richards products, please see our website:
Question 13
Why can't the delayed finish be set
for more than 13 hours? What is
the minimum time a cycle may be
delayed?
The maximum length of delay is 13
hours including the total cycle time.
For example, Setting 1 (basic small)
has a cycle time of 3:20. This start
is delayed by a maximum of 9:40.
The minimum length of delay for
each setting is 10 minutes. The
delay clock increases and
decreases in increments of 10
minutes.
Questions about
ingredients and
recipes
Question 14
How do I know when to add
raisins, nuts, etc. to the bread?
There is a beeper tone to signal
that you may add raisins, nuts, etc.
during the second kneading cycle.
Note: See ‘Baking cycle times’
chart for ‘Add nuts & raisins’ time.
In some cases, ingredients can be
broken up during the initial
kneading cycle. Each recipe
indicates the best time to add fruit
and nuts to the dough.
Question 15
How come my bread comes out
too moist? What can I do?
Humidity may affect the dough.
Add an extra tablespoon of flour.
Also, high altitude may have the
same effect. Decrease the amount
of yeast by 1/4 teaspoon and
decrease the sugar and/or
water/milk slightly.
Question 16
Why do I get air bubbles at the
top of the bread?
This can be caused by using too
much yeast. Decrease the yeast by
1/4 tsp.
Question 17
Why does my bread rise and
then collapse or crater?
The bread may be rising too much.
To reduce the rate of rising, reduce
the amount of yeast and/or
increase the amount of salt.
19
Question 18
Can I use my favourite bread
recipes (traditional yeast bread)
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 5 cups of dry
ingredients (that includes the total
amount of flour, oats, oatmeal,
bran). Use the recipes in this book
to help determine the ratio of dry
ingredients to liquid and amounts
of yeast, sugar, salt, and
oil/butter/margarine to use. We
advise creating your own bread
recipes using the basic mode, then
progress to the others, using the
Baking cycle times chart as a
guide.
Question 19
Is it important for ingredients to
be at room temperature before
adding them to the baking pan?
Yes, even when the delay timer is
being used. (Water must be
between 21oC and 28oC).
Question 20
Why do the loaves vary in height
and weight?
The whole wheat/wholemeal
breads are always shorter. Am I
doing something wrong?
No, it is normal for Whole wheat
and Wholemeal breads to be
shorter and denser than Basic or
French breads. Whole Wheat and
Wholemeal flour are heavier than
white bread flour, therefore they
don’t rise as much during the bread
making process. This is also true
for bread containing fruit, nuts,
oats and bran.
Question 21
Can I premix the yeast with
water?
No, the yeast must be kept dry and
put into the baking pan last, above
the flour. This is especially
important when the delay timer is
being used.
Question 22
Why is there a large hole in the
base of the bread?
This hole has been created by the
kneading blade. Sometimes this
hole is larger than normal. This is
20
UK Helpline 0844 871 0944
because the dough has rested to
the side of the blade after the
second kneading cycle - normal
with bread makers. You could
position the dough evenly in the
base of the pan.
Yeast has been activated before
programme has started.
Take care that yeast does not
come in contact with liquid
before programme has started.
Bread rises too
much.

Too much liquid from fresh or
canned fruit.
Always drain liquids well as
specified in the recipe. Water
may have to be reduced
slightly.
Large amounts of rich
ingredients like nuts, butter,
dried fruits, syrups and grains
will make dough heavy. This will
slow down the rising and prevent
the bread from baking through.

Difficult to remove
from the pan
The bread is sticking to the pan.
The surface of the pan needs to be
oiled before everyday use. Wash
the pan in hot soapy water and
thoroughly dry. Liberally coat the
inner surface of the pan with oil,
butter or margarine. Follow the
guide on page 6, ‘Using your
breadmaker’. When the bread pan
is removed from the machine after
the baking programme allow the
bread to cool in the pan for 15
minutes before turning out onto a
rack. Only slice the bread when
fully cooled after 20-40 minutes.
