During use it is normal to hear the
machine make thumping noises while it kneads
the dough. Also, during certain stages in the
program it is usual for condensation to form on
the viewing window. NEVER open the lid
during the rising and baking time as it will let
warm air escape and can affect the results
dramatically. Warning: Do not cover the top of
the appliance with any type of material whilst in
use as this may cause the viewing window to
melt. Do not touch the viewing window as it gets
hot during the baking cycle.
10 When baking has finished, a beep sounds.
Ideally remove the bread from the pan as soon
as it’s ready. There may be times when this is
not possible, so the appliance automatically
switches to the “keep warm” function (see
point 12) to prevent condensation spoiling the
bread. Switch off the bread maker at the mains
and unplug. Open the lid and lift out the bread
pan using oven gloves, as it will be very hot
(this is easier if the handle is positioned at the
front). Warning: Do not place the bread pan on
heat sensitive surfaces as it will be hot.
11 To remove the loaf from the pan, still wear
oven gloves and turn the pan upside down
and shake the bread out onto a wire rack to
cool. If you have difficulty removing the loaf,
loosen the sides with a plastic or wooden
spatula (never use metal utensils as they could
scratch the non-stick coating). Allow the bread
to cool before slicing. (See section ‘Slicing and
Storing Home Made Bread’ page 6).
Sometimes the kneading blade can remain in
the loaf after baking, to remove it wait until
the loaf has cooled slightly and then use the
end of a plastic spatula or other non-metallic
utensil to prise it out. Remember the kneading
blade could still be hot. If the kneading blade
remains stuck in the bottom of the pan, fill
with warm water and leave to soak to loosen
the blade from the shaft. Note: The handle on
the baking pan may remain very hot for a long
time after use, so take care when you come to
wash it.
12 The ‘Keep Warm’ function automatically
begins when the baking time has finished and
the display shows 0:00. During the one hour
period of keeping warm a beep continues to
sound at regular intervals and at the end of the
cycle automatically turn itself off. Bread can be
removed at any time during the keep warm
period. To turn off the ‘Keep Warm’ feature
manually, switch off at the mains and unplug.
5
13
Allow the appliance to cool with the lid
open for at least 30 minutes before using again.
Making Dough in your
Breadmaker (using programs 7 & 8)
Follow steps 1 to 9 in section ‘How to Use your
Breadmaker’. Open the lid and remove the
dough from the machine as soon as the cycle
finishes and use straight away. If you keep the
dough in the breadmaker, it may over rise and
produce poor results.
Switch off the bread maker at the mains and
unplug. Shape and give the dough a final rising
in a warm place until doubled in size. This takes
about 40 minutes - 1 hour for a large loaf and
about 25 - 30 minutes for rolls. Then bake in a
conventional oven. Please refer to individual
recipes for further details.
The final rising, often called proving, allows the
dough to rise a second time. Cover the dough to
prevent a hard skin forming, either use a large
polythene bag or cover with lightly oiled
polythene. Place the shaped bread in a warm,
draught free place until the dough had doubled
in size. If the dough has risen insufficiently it will
not produce a satisfactory result.
When baking it is important to preheat the oven
to the temperature stated in the recipe. If using a
fan oven, reduce the cooking temperature by
10°c and the cooking time may be a few
minutes faster. When correctly baked the bread
should be well risen and sound hollow when
tapped on the base.
Using The Timer For A
Delayed Start
You can program the Breadmaker up to 13
hours in advance, so that the bread is ready at
a time to suit you. The cycle time will be
exactly the same, it just means that you can
delay when the bread making will begin. For
example, you can set the timer in the evening
and wake up to fresh bread the following
morning. This function cannot be used on
programs 5, 6, 10, and 11.
Follow the instructions in ‘How to Use Your
Breadmaker’ steps 1 - 7. The program time for
the setting you have selected will be displayed.
Calculate the time you want the bread to be
ready. Example: If it is 8 pm when you place the
ingredients in the baking pan and you want your
bread ready at 7.30 am tomorrow morning, set
the timer to 11:30 (11 hours and 30 minutes), the
time required until the completion of the bread.
Use the “delayed start buttons” (J2) to set the
required time. Each time you press the + or button the display will increase or decrease in
10 minutes increments. Once you have set the
time, press the start/stop button (J4). The colon
in the display will flash to indicate that the timer
has been set and the countdown will begin.
If you make a mistake while setting the
“delayed start buttons”, press and hold the
“Start/Stop” button (J4) until it flashes “1 P”
and you can set the timer again.
Since home made bread has no preservatives it
tends to dry out and becomes stale faster than
commercial bread and is best eaten freshly
made, but it should keep for about 2 days.
Breads which contain egg and those without
any fat should be eaten on the day they are
made. Use up any dry bread for making toast.
To freeze home made bread, wrap in foil or
sealed freezer bags then defrost at room
temperature or in the microwave.
Cleaning
• Unplug the breadmaker and allow it to
cool down.
• Clean the body of the breadmaker and the
inside of the pan using a damp sponge.
Dry with care.
• Wash the pan and the blade using hot
water and washing-up liquid. Rinse and dry
quickly and carefully.
• Remove the lid to wash it in hot water and
washing-up liquid. Rinse and dry quickly and
carefully. Never immerse the lid or soak it in
water, in order to avoid any water getting
into the air vent grid.
• Never wash any part of the breadmaker in
a dishwasher.
• Never use scouring pads, nor alcohol, nor
scouring powder to clean the breadmaker.
Slicing and storing home
made bread
Cool bread on a wire rack for at least an hour
before slicing with a sharp, serrated edge knife or
electric carving knife. If you want to eat the bread
while it is still warm we advise cutting chunky
slices about 2.5 cm (1 inch) thick, otherwise it is
difficult to get even slices.
Store bread in an airtight container or wrap
loosely in a polythene bag and keep in a cool
dry place. Do not keep in the refrigerator as it
stales more quickly and draws the water out.
Crusty bread recipes are best stored in a paper
bag to prevent the crust softening.

Getting To Know Your
Breadmaker
sizes of loaf, either 500g or 750g. After baking
a ‘keep warm’ function stops the bread from
going soggy by keeping the bread warm for
up to one hour.
Whether you are inexperienced at making
bread or have been making your own bread
for years, with your Moulinex Home Bread
Maker you can gain the satisfaction of baking a
loaf of bread. Just add the ingredients, select
the type of bread and size of loaf then simply
press the start button. The Home Bread Maker
then mixes, kneads, proves, and bakes the
bread automatically, all in the same pan
leaving you free to do something else. What
could be simpler? You can even set the timer
to delay mixing, so that you can wake next
morning to have a loaf of bread ready for you
and your home filled with the delicious aroma
of freshly baked bread.
The recipes in the following pages have all been
specially developed for this machine and include
specific ingredients important for that bread. It
is extremely important not to alter the quantities
otherwise it could upset the critical balance of
the recipes and result in unsatisfactory baking
performance. One thing that may come as
unexpected surprise when first using your
breadmaker, is that all baked loaves have a hole
underneath where the kneading blade is
positioned while the bread is cooked in the
baking pan. This is typical of all breadmakers,
but we consider that the delicious taste of home
baked bread more than compensates for this.
Besides being able to make loaves, your Home
Bread Maker can also prepare bread dough for
rolls, buns and pizzas, ready to shape it by
hand and then bake in a conventional oven.
In fact there are 11 settings, including some for
making teabreads and cakes, and another for
making jam plus the choice of making two

Ingredients For Breadmaking
For successful bread making the quality of the
ingredients is critical. Even if you follow the
recipe exactly, inferior quality ingredients, the
wrong type of ingredient or inaccurate weighing
will affect the results considerably. The
information below will help you get to know
more about the key role of each ingredient.
Flour
For bread making a flour with a high gluten
content is essential. Some of the flours
recommended are listed below and are usually
available in large supermarkets and health
food shops.
Strong Plain Flour
Only use Strong Plain White Flour or flour
labelled as suitable for bread making. Never
use ordinary plain or self-raising flour as they
are not suitable for bread making, since they
do not contain enough gluten.
Wholemeal flour (also called Wholewheat flour)
All the bran and wheatgerm is present in this
flour. Like white flour, look for flour sold as
“Strong” or “Bread flour”. Loaves made with
all wholemeal or wholewheat flour have a
heavier texture and smaller rise. To improve
the rise when using wholemeal flour, vitamin C
powder can be added. This is available from
chemists. Even so a bumpy, gnarled looking
top and slightly sunken loaf are typical with
wholemeal bread as, although the loaf may rise
perfectly, the gluten gets overstretched in
kneading, rising and baking stages. Recipes
using a mixture of strong white flour and
wholemeal flour give a lighter texture loaf and
reduce this problem.
Stoneground flour
Instead of the modern milling method of using
steel rollers, the grains are crushed between
mill stones.
Brown or Wheatmeal flour
During milling only 10 - 15 % of the bran and
wheatgerm has been extracted. Brown bread
has a lighter texture than wholemeal bread.
Granary® or Malted Grain flour®
Crushed wheat or rye grains are mixed with
malted wholemeal flour. This gives the bread a
nutty flavour and coarse “bits”. The texture is
slightly heavier than white bread.
Softgrain flour
Rye and wheat grains are added to strong
white flour. This flour essentially makes a white
loaf with a rustic texture provided by the rye
and wheat grains. Softgrain flour can be
substituted for white flour in recipes.
Rye flour
Bread baked with all rye flour would be too
heavy and dense, for most British tastes, so it is
usually combined with other flours in a recipe.
Yeast
Yeast is a minute single-celled plant visible only
under a microscope. Given the right conditions
of moisture, warmth and food (in the form of
sugar and flour carbohydrates), the yeast
produces bubbles of carbon dioxide gas to
“rise” or leaven the yeast dough. This reaction
is retarded by cold, salt and high concentrations
of fat and sugar.
Yeast for home baking can be purchased in
three types - Fresh Yeast, Dry Granular Yeast,
(which needs to be dissolved in warm water
before use) and Easy Bake available in sachets
which can be used dry (also called Easy Blend
or Fast Acting Yeast). Do not use fresh yeast
or dry granular yeast, usually sold in tins.
Always use yeast marked “Easy Bake”, “Easy
Blend”, “Fast Action or Fast Acting” on the
packet. Do not dissolve this type of yeast in
water before use. Once a sachet of yeast has
been opened, seal it well and use it within 48
hours. Bread or dough that fails to rise is often
caused by stale yeast.
Always add the yeast last so that it is not in
contact with the liquid otherwise it could activate
the yeast too soon.
Sugar
Sugar is required as food for the yeast.
Generally granulated sugar is used in the
recipes, but any type of sugar can be added,
including caster sugar, brown sugar, golden
syrup, or honey. However too much sugar may
affect the rising process and make the bread
collapse. As sugar burns easily too much can
make the crust too dark. Artificial sweeteners
cannot be substituted for sugar as the yeast
will not react with them.
Salt
Salt is a vital ingredient as it prevents the yeast
from working too quickly and making it rise
too much, adds flavour and helps the gluten to
stretch. However, too much salt slows down
the fermentation process and too little results in
a poor dough. Use ordinary table salt and
ensure the salt does not come in contact with
the yeast before mixing otherwise it could kill
the yeast. Do not use coarsely ground salt or
salt substitutes.
8
For special diets, it is possible to make salt free
bread but it tends to over rise and have large
air pockets. Please contact our Customer
Relations Team for recipe information on:
0845 330 4554 - UK (calls charged at local rate)
01 6774230 - Ireland.
Nuts should be finely chopped and take care
not to add more than about 100 g (4 oz) as
they cut through the gluten structure and
reduce the height of the cooked loaf.
Liquid
Bread Making With The
Delayed Start Program
Accurate measuring of the liquid is essential,
using the measuring cup provided. Flour may
produce different results from brand to brand or
even batch to batch, so you may need to adapt
the quantity of liquid by 1 or 2 tablespoons to
achieve the same cooked result. Too much
liquid can cause a loaf to over rise and collapse,
and too little can result in a lower rise.
Most recipes use either cold tap water or milk,
or a combination of the two. Any liquid used in
the recipes should be tepid, about 20°C 25 °C, and not too cold. In winter weather
water straight from the tap may be too cold
and likewise milk straight from the refrigerator.
Water alone produces a crisp crust and milk
softens the crust. If using fresh milk, we advise
using semi-skimmed or skimmed milk to avoid
bread having a close texture.
Do not use fresh milk on the delayed start
program as it could sour overnight.
Milk powder
Many recipes have skimmed milk powder
added to enhance the flavour of the bread and
improve the keeping qualities. This is often
omitted if fresh milk has been included in the
recipe and for continental style breads.
Fat
Fat enriches the dough, improves the softness
and colour of the bread and delays staling.
Any type of fat can be used, but butter gives
the best flavour. Instead of butter in the recipes
you can substitute block margarine (not soft
margarine), white vegetable fat, lard, or oil. For
butter or solid fats, cut it into small pieces
before adding to the bread pan to ensure even
mixing. Do not use low fat spreads or butter
substitutes.
Other ingredients
Other ingredients are often added when
making bread such as egg, cheese, dried fruit,
nuts, grains, seeds, herbs and spices.
Remember if adding cheese, fresh fruit or fresh
vegetables that the water content of these
foods will affect the loaf volume and could
cause a slightly collapsed loaf.
9
If you are using the delayed start facility, the
yeast must not come in contact with the liquid
so ensure the flour totally covers the liquid
ingredients underneath. Also, do not use fresh
milk, eggs, fresh fruit, sour cream, yoghurt or
cheese as they could spoil or stale overnight.
Top Tips For The Best
Breadmaking
• Read the instruction and recipe book.
Whether you are an inexperienced
breadmaker or have been baking bread for
many years, it is important to familiarise
yourself with the machine and the recipes, as
using a bread maker is quite different to
making bread by hand.
• Buy the correct ingredients for bread
making. You need strong bread flour and
EasyBake/EasyBlend or Fast Action dried yeast.
• Measure the ingredients exactly. Measure
liquids using the measuring cup supplied and
use the measuring spoon provided for yeast,
salt, milk powder and sugar. The measuring
spoon is marked with a half level for your
convenience. Use accurate weighing scales
for the other ingredients.
• Place the ingredients in the bread pan in
the exact order stated in the recipe. The
order must not be altered. Always add the
yeast last so that it is not in contact with the
liquid otherwise it could activate the yeast
too soon. Never let the yeast touch the liquid
before kneading.
• Do not use stale or out of date ingredients.
Reseal dried yeast after opening and discard
within 48 hours. Use flour within the best
before date, and reseal the packet after use
storing it in a cool, dry place.
• Avoid overloading your Breadmaker.
Do not exceed the 750 g quantities in
the recipes.
• Experimenting with new recipes. Ideas
from other Bread Maker recipe books or
recipes developed for other Bread Makers
may give different results as the programme
cycles and baking times vary between various
models. We advise you to follow the
proportions of flour, water and yeast in our
recipes as they have been specially developed
to work best with the Moulinex Home Bread
Maker programmes cycles.
• Keep the ingredients and your Home Bread
Maker at room temperature. The right
temperature is critical when baking bread.
The temperature of your kitchen and the
position of the Home Bread Maker are
important, and it works best at room
temperature. In a cold room or during winter
months when the delayed start facility is used,
a difference in volume may be noticed. Take
care not to position the appliance next to
ovens or cookers, or in direct sunlight as
extremes of temperature can affect the
cooked loaf.
• Remember that when bread making no two
loaves will have exactly the same appearance
and rise, even if using the same recipe.
Sometimes it will have a perfect shape and
on others occasions it may have dips, bumps
or an uneven top crust. This is inevitable, but
usually the taste and quality of the bread are
not affected. Also, cooked loaves will have a
hole underneath where the kneading blade is
baked into the bread and the texture may be
slightly denser around this area. This is typical
of all breadmakers, but we consider that the
delicious taste of home baked bread more
than compensates for this.
Creating Your Own Recipes
Once you have become familiar with the
operation of your breadmaker, you may want
to experiment with creating your own recipes.
It is important not to exceed the maximum
capacity of 750 g (the total weight of the flour,
water and any other ingredients). Use the
recipes in this cookbook as a guide to the
quantity of ingredients and program setting.
If you have any problems with the cooked loaves
refer to the Troubleshooting section for advice.
Glazes For Baked Bread
To give your loaf an attractive finish the top
crust can be brushed with any of the following
after it has been baked and removed from the
bread pan.
Melted butter or margarine
Melt some butter or margarine in a saucepan
or in the microwave and brush over the top of
the bread for a soft, tender crust.
Milk or cream glaze
Brush some single cream or evaporated milk
over the top for a shiny, soft crust.
Jam, Syrup or Honey
Ideal for buns and sweet breads.
Glacé Icing
Mix a little warm water with some sifted icing
sugar to make a fairly thick icing. Spread over
buns and sweet breads.
Making More Than One Loaf
If you want to bake more than one loaf, allow
the breadmaker to cool with the lid open for at
least 30 minutes before using again. Always
ensure that the baking pan and kneading blade
are clean and dry before starting the next loaf.

French Loaf
Bread Recipes
Bread is very much personal taste so finding the right recipe to match your idea of the ‘perfect’ loaf may
require trying different recipes and settings. For white bread use Program 3 if you like a crisp crust or
Program 4 if you prefer a softer crust. Loaves cooked on the Super Rapid program 5 or using delayed start
may have slightly less rise and volume. Measure the ingredients using the cup and spoon supplied with
your appliance and add in the exact order stated in the recipe.
All Moulinex recipes use the minimum of yeast, to avoid unpleasant yeast flavours in the bread, and give a
good rise with freshly opened dried Easybake or Active yeast. Reseal yeast immediately after opening and
discard within 48 hours. Recipes with other bread machines may use different proportions of ingredients
tailored to suit their program cycles.

Super Rapid Bake Bread
Your Moulinex breadmaker can bake a white loaf in under one hour using the “Super Rapid” program
number 5. Loaves baked on this setting are a little more dense in texture with less rise and tend to have a
darker crust than with the other programs. Sometimes there is a crack along the top of the crust. The loaf
is best eaten fresh on the day it is made.
Super Rapid Program Tips and Hints
• Always use HOT water in the range 46°C to 51°C for the “Super Rapid” program. This is essential
as the yeast needs to activate quickly due to the shorter kneading and rising time. We advise you
use a cooking thermometer to check the temperature, if the water is too hot it could kill the yeast.
• Use less salt to help obtain a higher volume loaf.
• More yeast is used when making bread using the “Super Rapid” program so that sufficient volume
is achieved in the short rising time.
For all the dough recipes, follow the steps in the section ‘Making Dough in your Breadmaker’ page 5.
Suitable glazes are whole beaten egg, beaten egg white, egg yolk beaten with a little water, or milk.
For a soft crust brush with milk and dust with flour before baking. After glazing a topping can be sprinkled
on such as poppy seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, caraway seeds or cracked wheat.

• Commercially prepared Gluten free bread mixes such as Glutafin, Trufree and Juvela should be
prepared as directed by the manufacturer. For further information and gluten free bread recipe

• If gluten bread is made for dietary reasons it is very important to avoid cross contamination with flours
containing gluten. Ensure the bread pan and blade, plus any utensils used, are thoroughly cleaned.
• With gluten free bread mixes and flours the ingredients are mixed to a thick batter, unlike the dough
made in traditional bread making. To ensure an even mix open the lid during the first kneading and stir
in any dried mix around the sides using a rubber or plastic spatula.
• Usually the liquid ingredients are added to the bread pan first and then the dry ingredients (but do
not allow salt to come in contact with the yeast).
• The blade may get stuck in the cooked loaf and this is to be expected with gluten free bread.
Leave the loaf to cool for 10 minutes and remove the blade using the end of a plastic spatula but
take care when removing as it will still be very hot.

Your Moulinex Home Bread can be used to make gluten free bread but the method is very different from
traditional bread making. Please follow the guidelines below.
Teabreads
Use Program 6 to mix and bake teabreads made with baking powder and bicarbonate of soda instead of
yeast. Add all the liquid ingredients first and then place the dry ingredients on top. They are mixed to a
thick batter but any unmixed flour in the corners of the pan needs to be stirred in using a rubber spatula.
When baking has finished, remove the pan from the machine immediately using oven gloves. Switch off
the appliance at the mains and unplug. Leave the cooked teabread to ‘set’ in the pan for 10 minutes
before removing, then cool on a wire rack before slicing. All teabreads have a large hole in the base from
the kneading blade and a thicker crust than when cooking in a conventional oven.

of the pan. Follow the directions above. For a walnut topping, just before the baking cycle starts (time on display
1 hr 30 min) open the lid and sprinkle 50 g (2 oz) chopped walnuts on top of the mixture.

Cakes
Jams And Compotes
Cakes can be mixed in a separate bowl and then baked in the bread pan using Program 11 providing they
cook within 1 hour. However it is not suitable for all cake recipes, such as Victoria Sandwich mix, or those
that require a hot oven or have a high sugar content as they tend to burn. Remove the kneading blade
from the pan and line the sides and bottom with baking parchment, before adding the cake mixture.
Cooked cakes may have a thicker, darker crust than in a conventional oven.
Small quantities of jam, sufficient to make about 675 g (11/2 lb) of jam, can be made on Program 10. The
setting of the jam will depend on the quality of the fruit which should only be just ripe. Poor quality fruit,
under ripe or over ripe fruit will give a poor set. Adding fresh lemon juice, squeezed from lemons, helps the
jam to set as does Certo, apple pectin extract, available from large supermarkets. When cooled it will keep for
about 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
When baking has finished and remove the pan from the machine immediately using oven gloves. Switch
off the appliance at the mains and unplug. Still using oven gloves, loosen the sides of the cake with a
spatula and turn out on to a wire rack.
Safety note: When making jam never exceed the maximum quantity in the recipe otherwise it could boil
over into the inner case. Do not open the lid during the jam cycle and when it has finished leave the jam
for 10 minutes before slowly opening the lid. Some hot steam may escape. Always use oven gloves when
slowly pouring the jam into the warmed jars as the jam will be very hot.

• There is a protective film over the display
when new.
• Remove the protective film.
Not mixing or working on Program 2.
• On program 2 for the first 30 minutes it
will seem that the breadmaker is not
doing anything, However, there is a slight
temperature rise within the breadmaker
to activate the yeast during this time.
The next operation will begin when the
display shows 3:40 (750 g setting) and
3:30 (500 g setting).
• Wait for 30 minutes. Do not open the lid
of the breadmaker during this time as this
will affect the cycle.
• This is normal for breadmakers for this
design.
• Grease the shaft and inside of the blade
with oil before fitting in the pan.
• Ensure that the bread cools down before
removing the kneading blade and use
plastic utensils to avoid damaging the
blade.
Detachable kneading blade stuck in the
bread.
Detachable kneading blade stuck in the
baking pan.
• This is normal for breadmakers of this
design.
• Food debris not cleaned from inside the
kneading blade and/or shaft gets baked
on causing the blade to lock tight.
• Soak the pan in hot water and washing
up liquid for 5 mins or longer.
Remove the blade using plastic utensils to
avoid damaging the blade and the pan.
Loaf had a hole underneath and the
bread is doughy around this part.
• This is normal for breadmakers of this
design.
• If the doughy part is only partially cooked
possibly too much liquid used.
• Use the dough Program 8 instead and
bake in a conventional oven.
• Slice the loaf on its side, so that the top
crust is the first slice, then the ‘hole’ part
is the last slice.
• Use less liquid.
Bread rises too much.
Bread does not rise enough.
21
Reason
• Too much yeast added.
• Too much flour or incorrect type of flour.
• Not enough salt or forgot to add it.
• Liquid touched yeast before kneading.
• Use accurate measures for yeast and salt.
• Use less yeast (reduce by 1/4 tsp at a time).
• Check that all the ingredients have been
added and the flour is the correct type.
• It is essential to add the ingredients in the
order in the recipe with the yeast last.
• Not enough yeast.
• Yeast is too old or wrong type used.
• Too much/not enough water/liquid.
• Lid has been opened during the rising
program.
• Wrong type of flour used or stale flour.
• Liquid was too cold or too hot.
• No sugar added.
• Use accurate measures.
Increase yeast by 1/4 tsp at a time.
• Use fresh ingredients.
• Adjust liquid content by 1 tbsp at a time.
In high humidity use a little less liquid.
• Do not open the lid during rising cycle.
• Use strong bread flour not plain flour.
• Check temperature with a thermometer.
If too cold it retards the yeast and if too
hot kills it.
• Yeast needs some sugar to activate it.
Problem
Reason
Correction
Bread does not rise at all.
• Forgot to add yeast or yeast was stale.
• Yeast killed by contact with salt or by
adding an ingredient that is too hot.
• Liquid touched yeast before kneading.
• Yeast should be discarded 48 hours after
opening and not be past its expiry date.
• Always place the ingredients in the order
stated in the recipe with the liquid first
and yeast last.
• Only use tepid ingredients.
Wholemeal bread has less rise.
• It is normal for bread made with
wholemeal flour to have less rise and a
denser texture.
• For a lighter texture use the 50%
wholemeal recipe.
Wholemeal bread sometimes has a
wrinkled top or slightly sunken top.
• This is typical for wholemeal bread in
your Home Bread Maker as the gluten
gets overstretched in the kneading, rising
and baking processes.
• You may prefer results using program 1
for Rapid Baked Wholemeal bread which
has a shorter rising time.
• The rustic appearance does not affect the
taste and quality of the bread.
Loaf had a big air hole inside or top crust
has split/erupted.
• Liquid touched yeast before kneading.
• Always place the ingredients in the order
stated in the recipe with the liquid first.
• When using the delayed start option
make sure the yeast is in the centre of the
pan.
Heavy, lumpy bread.
• Too much liquid.
• Not enough yeast.
• Too much flour.
• Older ingredients or wrong type of flour.
• Reduce the liquid by 1-2 tbsp at a time.
Use accurate measures.
• Increase yeast by 1/4 tsp at a time.
• Reduce quantity of flour.
• Use fresh ingredients.
Open, moist/too porous bread.
• Too much liquid.
• No salt added.
• Use accurate measures.
• In high humidity use a little less water.
• Different batches of flour may require less
liquid.
Air bubble under the crust.
• The dough was poorly mixed.
• Unfortunately this does happen on
one-off occasions. If the problem persists
add an extra tablespoon of liquid.
Bread difficult to slice
• Bread is cut too soon after baking.
• Bread is too moist due to either too much
liquid or addition of moist ingredients eg
olives.
• Leave the bread to cool for at least 1
hour before slicing.
• Reduce the quantity of liquid.
Loaf difficult to remove from the pan.
• This can happen with any breadmaker.
• The pan was poorly cleaned and scraps of
food debris remained on the shaft and/or
kneading blade. This causes sticking
when making the next loaf.
• Loosen the sides first with a plastic
spatula. If the loaf does not come out
easily, leave for about 5 minutes and then
try again.
• Clean pan and kneading blade
thoroughly after each use.
