Important Safeguards
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should
always be followed including the following:
1
Read all instructions, product labels and warnings before using the
breadmaker.
2 Do not touch hot surfaces. Always use oven mitts when handling hot
materials, and allow metal parts to cool before cleaning. Allow the
breadmaker to cool thoroughly before putting in or taking off parts.
3 When unit is not in use and before cleaning, unplug the breadmaker from
wall outlet.
4 To protect against risk of electrical shock, do not immerse the appliance
or plugs in water or other liquids.
5 Close supervision is always necessary when this or any appliance is used
by or near children, or incapacitated persons.
6 Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not plug in cord
where people may walk or trip on it.
7
Do not operate this or any appliance with a frayed or damaged cord, or
plug, or after the appliance malfunctions or is dropped or has been
damaged in any manner. Take appliance to the nearest authorized
service facility for examination, repair, or electrical or mechanical
adjustment.
8 Do not let the cord dangle over the edge of a table or counter or touch
hot surfaces. Do not place on an unsteady or cloth-covered surface.
9 Avoid contact with moving parts.
10 Do not use attachments not recommended by the manufacturer; they may
cause fire, electric shock or injury.
11 Do not use outdoors or for commercial purposes.
12 Do not place the appliance near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a
heated oven.
13 Do not use appliances for other than intended purpose.
14 To unplug, press and hold the “STOP” button for 2–3 seconds (until “Beep”
is heard), grip plug and pull from wall outlet. Never pull on the cord.
15 Use of extension cords: A short power supply cord has been provided to
reduce the risk of injury resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping
over a longer cord. Extension cords are available from hardware stores
and may be used with care. The cord should be arranged so that it will
not drape over the counter or tabletop where it can be pulled by children
or tripped over accidentally. If the appliance is of the grounded type, the
extension cord should be grounding-type 3-wire cord.
16 Electrical Power: If electric circuit is overloaded with other appliances,
your breadmaker may not operate properly. The breadmaker should be
operated on a separate electrical circuit from other operating appliances.
This unit is intended for household use only.

Getting Started
1
Place the breadmaker on a
counter where the plug will
reach an outlet. DO NOT yet
plug the machine into the
wall outlet. You will be shown
later when to do this.
Make sure you can open the
breadmaker top without
hitting the top of kitchen
cabinets.
2
2
Open the lid and remove the
baking pan. To do this,
simply grasp the handle of
the pan and pull straight up.
Use a gentle, non-abrasive
soap and wash, rinse, and
dry the pan thoroughly.
3
Attach the kneading blade to
the baking pan, as shown.
You will find the kneading
blade in a small plastic wrap
attached to the power cord.
4
Set the pan aside. Do not yet place the pan into the
breadmaker.
You’re ready to start!

Let’s Bake Bread
The simplest way to learn how to bake bread is to follow a basic
recipe. The following recipe is easy and the bread is delicious.
Before you begin
• Make sure you have the following
measuring equipment:
— Liquid measuring cup
— Dry measuring cups
— Measuring spoons
• You will need the following ingredients:
— Water
— Butter/Margarine
— Salt
— Bread flour (be sure to buy
bread flour, preferably for
breadmakers)
— Dry milk
— Sugar
— Active, fast rising yeast

Measuring
THE most important secret of making bread.
Exact measurements. That’s the key to successfully baking
bread. Exact measurements.
With wet ingredients, use ONLY
measuring cups with the cups/
ounces marked clearly on the side.
After filling the measuring cup,
place it on a flat surface and view it
at eye level to make sure the
amount of liquid is exact. Then,
double check.
With dry ingredients, always
“level off” the measurement with the
back of a knife or a spatula to
make sure the measurement is
exact. Another helpful tip is to
never use the cup to scoop the
ingredients (for example, flour). By
scooping, you could add up to one
tablespoon of extra ingredients. Fill
the measuring cup with a spoon
before leveling off.
The SECOND most important secret of making bread.
Put the ingredients into the breadmaker in the EXACT order
given in the recipe. This means:
—FIRST, liquid ingredients
—SECOND, dry ingredients
—LAST, yeast
Also, make sure ALL ingredients are at room temperature,
(between 77°–85° F) unless otherwise noted in the recipe .
5
Temperatures too cool or too high can affect the way the
bread rises and bakes.
Last, it’s a good idea to start with all new, fresh ingredients
(especially fresh flour and yeast).
Now, let’s try a simple (but really good) recipe.
6
Traditional White Bread
2 lb. loaf
1 + 1/3 cups water
2 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons softened
butter or margarine
2 teaspoons active dry
yeast
4 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons dry milk
1
Carefully measure 1 and 1/3
cups water. Remember, use
water that is room
temperature. DO NOT use
very hot or very cold water.
It’s a good idea to view the
measuring cup at eye level to make sure you have
measured exactly 1 and 1/3 cups.
2
Pour the water into the bread
pan.
3
Carefully measure 4 teaspoons of butter or margarine
that is at room temperature. Add this to the bread pan.
7
This takes care of all of the liquid ingredients for the
recipe. Next come the dry ingredients.
4
Measure 4 cups of bread flour. Make sure not to
“overpack” the flour into the cup. To avoid over packing,
a good trick is to fill the measuring cup to overflowing,
then tap the side of the cup with a knife or spatula to
remove air pockets. Level off the measuring cup with the
knife or spatula. Pour the flour into the bread pan.
5
Measure 2 tablespoons of sugar. Again, make sure to
level off the tablespoons for an exact measurement.
Add the sugar into the bread pan.
6
Measure 4 teaspoons of dry milk. Level off the
teaspoons of dry milk like all of the rest of the dry
ingredients. Add the dry milk to the bread pan.
7
Measure 2 teaspoons of salt. It is especially important to
measure the salt precisely because too much salt, even
a little, can affect the rising of the dough. Add the salt
to the bread pan.
8
Before adding the yeast, use
your finger to form a well
(hole) in the flour where you
will pour the yeast. Yeast must
NEVER come into contact with
a liquid when you are adding
ingredients.
Measure (again, leveling off) 2 teaspoons of yeast and
carefully pour it into the well you made in the flour.
8
9
Carefully snap the baking
pan into the breadmaker.
the lid of the bread machine and plug the power
10 Close
cord into the wall outlet.
The following things will happen. The machine will
“beep,” and the lights of the display will turn on. The
time setting will say “3:00” hours.
11
Repeatedly press the “Crust Color” button to select the
kind of crust you want. For this recipe we recommend
“Medium.”
Depending on the crust color you select, the arrow will
be pointing to either light, medium or dark. As you press
crust color, the display will temporarily read:
3 :0 0
Light:
1L
Medium: 1P
Dark:
1H
Press the “Crust Color” button until “IP” (medium)
temporarily appears in the display window.
9
the “Start/Stop” button and your machine will start
12 Press
making bread. You will hear the breadmaker begin to
mix the ingredients.
Important: Do NOT press the “Start/Stop” button while
the breadmaker is making bread. If you do, the machine
will turn off and you will need to start over again, from
scratch.
Important: You should not raise the lid for this recipe.
(For other recipes you try later, you will need to raise
the lid to add nuts, fruits, or other ingredients.)
Caution: The breadmaker is very hot. Do not handle the
machine while its operating. Do NOT lift the lid while the
breadmaker is baking bread.
Bread Machine Stages
It’s fun to watch your bread being made through the viewing
window. For the basic cycle, you can expect the following
things to happen as the timer counts down to zero.
To begin: The dough is kneaded for the first time.
(10 minutes)
10
At 2:50:
The dough begins to rise. (20 minutes)
At 2:30:
The dough is kneaded for the second time.
(15 minutes)
At 2:15:
The dough continues to rise. (20 minutes)
At 1:55:
The dough is “punched down.” (30 seconds)
At 1:55:
The dough rises for the final time. (55 minutes)
At 1:00:
The bread begins to bake. (60 minutes)
At 0:00:
The bread is finished.
After the bread is baked
Caution: Do not put your face near the lid when you
open the breadmaker. Hot steam may escape that
could burn you.
Important: The breadmaker has an automatic “keep
warm” setting that will keep your bread warm for up to
one hour. We recommend however to remove the bread
from the breadmaker right away to preserve its
freshness.
1
Use pot holders or oven mitts to
carefully lift the pan by its handle
from the breadmaker.
2
Turn the pan upside down onto a
cooling rack and gently shake it until the bread comes
out. If it sticks, take a rubber spatula (metal can
damage the pan’s surface) and carefully go around the
sides of the loaf until the bread comes out.
3
If the kneading blade comes out with the bread, use a
plastic utensil to remove it from the loaf. Remember, it
will be hot!
Allow the bread to cool for 15 minutes before slicing and
enjoying it.
Important: If you wish to make another loaf of bread
right away, please allow the breadmaker to cool down
for 10 to 15 minutes with the cover open and the pan
removed.

1
Basic
This setting is probably used more than any other because
it gives you the best results with just about any recipe.
2
Whole Wheat
The whole wheat setting offers a longer rise time for breads
that contain more than 50% whole wheat flour.
3
French
Use this setting for making French breads. French bread
takes longer to knead, rise, and bake, providing a heartier
crust.
14
4
Sweet
The sweet setting is for baking breads with high amounts of
sugar, fats, and proteins, all of which tend to increase
browning.
5
EXPRESSBAKE™ (58 minutes)
Use this setting to for baking bread in under one hour.
(please see page 16).
6
EXPRESSBAKE™ (80 minutes)
Use this setting to quickly bake larger loaves of bread
(please see page 16).
7
Dough
This setting lets you prepare dough for rolls, specialty
breads, pizza, etc. which you shape by hand, allow to rise,
then bake in a conventional oven.
8
Bake
This setting is for making dough or jams.

EXPRESSBAKE™: Making Bread
in Under 1 Hour
Your Oster® breadmaker can bake great bread in under one
hour. This is called the “EXPRESSBAKE™” setting. Loaves
baked on the EXPRESSBAKE™ setting are a little different
than loaves not baked on EXPRESSBAKE™ settings. Try all
the different settings to see which one you prefer.
There are two EXPRESSBAKE™ settings:
• One setting can bake
bread in 58 minutes.
The bread is a little
more dense in texture
with this setting.

There are a few things you should know about the
EXPRESSBAKE™ settings that are different than the other
settings.
— Loaves baked on EXPRESSBAKE™ settings tend to have a
darker, thicker crust than other kinds of bread. Sometimes
there will be a crack in the top of the crust. This is because
baking is done at higher temperatures. They also tend to
be shorter, denser loaves.
— You CANNOT use the Delay Timer for the EXPRESSBAKE™
settings. This would cool the liquid ingredients and affect
the way that the bread rises.
— You CANNOT use the “Crust Color” buttons when baking
breads on the EXPRESSBAKE™ settings.
— DO NOT open the cover while making breads on the
EXPRESSBAKE™ settings.
— If the loaf is hard to remove from the pan, let it sit for about
5 minutes to cool. Shake the bread out of the pan and wait
for 15 minutes before slicing.
17
— If you wish to bake another loaf of bread, you must let the
breadmaker cool for 20 minutes with the cover open.
— YOU CAN use standard bread mixes for EXPRESSBAKE™
setting breads, but the results may not be as good as the
results when using your Oster® Breadmaker recipes within
this book.
EXPRESSBAKE™ Setting Tips and Hints
Yeast
Always use a fast rising yeast like Red Star® Quick•Rise™
yeast. DO NOT use active dry yeast for EXPRESSBAKE™
settings because the loaves will be much shorter when baked.
Liquids
Always use hot water in the range of 115°–125° F. You must use
a cooking thermometer to gauge the temperature; hotter water
can kill the yeast while cooler water may not activate it.
Salt
As a rule, you should use LESS salt for EXPRESSBAKE™
setting breads. Less salt provides you with a higher loaf. Make
sure to follow your Oster® Breadmaker recipe suggestions for
best results.
Other Ingredients
Make sure all other ingredients (like flour, sugar, dry milk,
butter, etc.) are at room temperature.
Always use bread flour for the EXPRESSBAKE™ settings.
Things You May Need to Buy
— You should only use “Bread
Machine” flour for the
EXPRESSBAKE™ setting recipes.
18
— You may need a cooking
thermometer to measure the
temperature of the water you use
in these recipes. You should only
use hot water (between 115° and
125° F) for EXPRESSBAKE™
setting recipes.
Although baking EXPRESSBAKE™ setting breads is a little
different, the results and convenience are well worth it.
The following recipe is a great one to try for your first
EXPRESSBAKE™ setting loaf.
1 1/2 lb. Traditional
White Bread
1 cup and 2 tablespoons (9
ounces total) of hot water
(115°–125° F)
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons oil (room
temperature)
41/2 teaspoons “Red Star®
Quick•Rise™” yeast
3 cups “Bread Machine”
flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1
Carefully measure 1 cup and
2 tablespoons (9 ounces total)
of hot water. Remember, it’s a
good idea to place the
measuring cup at eye level to
make sure you have measured
exactly 1 cup and 2 tablespoons (9 ounces total).
19
2
Use a cooking thermometer to
make sure the temperature of
the water is between 115°–125° F.
When the water is at the proper
temperature, pour into the
baking pan.
3
Carefully measure and add 2 tablespoons oil that is at
room temperature.
4
Carefully measure and add the salt, sugar, and dry milk
to the baking pan.
5
Measure and add exactly 3 cups of bread flour to the
baking pan. Remember to level off the bread flour for
an exact measurement.
6
Before adding the yeast,
use your finger to form a
well (hole) in the flour
where you will pour the
yeast. Yeast must NEVER
come into contact with a
liquid when you are
adding ingredients.
Measure (again leveling off) 41/2 teaspoons of “Red Star®
Quick•Rise™” yeast and carefully pour into the well you
made in the flour.
7
20
Carefully snap the baking pan into the breadmaker.

Press the “Start/Stop” button and your machine will start
making bread.
Caution: Do NOT raise the lid when using the
EXPRESSBAKE™ setting. Doing so can affect the rising
of the dough. The breadmaker is very hot, right from the
beginning of the cycle. Do not handle the machine
while its operating.
Important: Do NOT press the “Start/Stop” button while
the breadmaker is making bread. If you do, the machine
will turn off and you will need to start over again, from
scratch.
After the EXPRESSBAKE™ setting bread is baked
Caution: Do not put your face near the lid when you
open the breadmaker. Hot steam may escape that

Important: The breadmaker has an automatic “keep
warm” setting that will keep your bread warm for up to
one hour. We recommend, however, to remove the bread
from the machine right away to preserve its freshness.
21
1
Use pot holders or oven mitts to carefully lift the pan by
its handle from the breadmaker.
2
Turn the pan upside down onto a cooling rack and
gently shake it until the bread comes out. If it sticks,
take a rubber spatula, (metal can damage the pan’s
surface), and carefully go around the sides of the loaf
until the bread comes out.
3
If the kneading blade comes out with the bread, use a
plastic utensil to remove it from the loaf. Remember, it
will be hot!
Allow the bread to cool on the rack for 15 minutes before
slicing and enjoying it.
If you wish to make another loaf of bread right away, please
allow the breadmaker to cool down for 10 to 15 minutes with
the cover open and the pan removed.
22
Using the Delay Timer
You can delay the time your breadmaker starts to have fresh
bread ready when you get up in the morning or when you
come from work.
We recommend that before you use the Delay Timer, you try
out a few recipes. Use recipes that have produced good
results for you in the past.
Important: You cannot use the Delay Timer for
EXPRESSBAKE™ settings. Before using the Delay Timer:
1
Add all of the ingredients of the recipe.
2
Select the correct setting for the kind of bread you
are making (French, Sweet, etc.).
3
Select the crust color.
Caution: Do not use recipes with ingredients that can
spoil like eggs or milk.
23
To use the Delay Timer:
1
Figure out how many hours and minutes there are
between now and when you want final, baked bread.
For example, if it is 8:00 AM and you want bread ready
for dinner at 6:00 PM, that is 10 hours.
2
Use the “Timer Up” button to
advance the time in 10
minutes increments. In our
example, you will do this until
the timer reads “10:00.” If
necessary, use the “Timer
Down” button to decrease the
time. (To advance the time
quickly, simply press and
hold down the “Timer
Up/Down” buttons.)
Light Med Dark
Timer Set
Important: If you make a mistake or wish to start over,
press and hold down the “Start/Stop” button until you
hear a beep. The display will show the original setting
and cycle time. The Delay Timer is canceled and you
can start again.
3
When the Delay Timer is set where you want it, make
sure to press the “Start/Stop” button. The colon “:” will
flash and your bread will be ready when you planned.
Important: When using the Delay Timer during times of
hot weather, you may wish to reduce the liquid in your
recipe by 1 or 2 tablespoons. This is to prevent the
dough from rising too much. You may also reduce the
salt by 1/8 or 1/4 teaspoons and try cutting the amount
of sugar you use by 1/4 teaspoon at a time.
24
Tips and Hints
Experienced cooks consider breadmaking to be as much of
an art as a science. Keep in mind that some recipes may
require a little experimentation before they are exactly the
way you want them. Just don’t give up.
Still, there are special hints to ensuring quality bread almost
every time.
Use Exact Measurements
We’ve already mentioned how
important it is to use exact
measurements when baking bread,
but it should be said again. Level
off all dry ingredients and make
sure that all liquid ingredients are measured in a glass cup
with the markings clearly labeled on the side.
Use Fresh Ingredients
You should always use fresh ingredients. The reasons are:
• Flour. If you have stored your flour for a long time, it may
have become wet from absorbing moisture, or dry,
25
depending on the area of the country in which you live.
We recommend using fresh bread flour.
• Yeast. Fresh yeast is probably the most important
ingredient in baking bread. If the yeast is not fresh, your
bread may not rise. It is better to buy new yeast than to
take a chance on yeast that has been stored for a long
time.
You can test the freshness of your yeast. Simply fill a cup
with warm water, then add and stir in 2 teaspoons of sugar.
Sprinkle a few teaspoons of yeast on the surface of the
water and wait. After 15 minutes, the yeast should foam and
there should be distinct odor. If neither reaction happens,
the yeast is old and should be thrown away.
Add Ingredients in Order
Read all recipes from top to bottom, and remember:
—FIRST, liquid ingredients
—SECOND, dry ingredients
—LAST, yeast
Check the Doughball
This is a secret well known by people who make bread the old
fashioned way. While hand kneading the mixture, they adjust
the consistency of the dough by adding a little flour or a little
water until the doughball is just right.
Although the breadmaker kneads the dough for you, this
secret is still true. Here’s what you should do.
26
If the doughball is too wet
During the second kneading cycle,
check the consistency of the
doughball. If the doughball
appears sticky or wet, like pancake batter, sprinkle in flour, a
tablespoon at a time, until the doughball appears smooth,
round, and dry and circles nicely in the pan.
If the doughball is too dry
If the doughball appears flaky, or
you hear your breadmaker begin to
make “knocking” sounds, the dough
ball is too dry. To correct this
problem, simply sprinkle in water, a teaspoon at a time, until
the doughball appears smooth, round and dry, and circles
nicely in the pan. Be careful not to add too much water.
For Baking at High Altitudes
If you live above 3000 feet, you probably
already know how to adjust other recipes like
cakes and muffins. Higher altitudes tend to:
• make dough rise faster
• make flour drier
To compensate for high altitude baking, We recommend
the following:
If the dough is too dry
• increase the amount of water to the recipe, sometimes as
much as 2–4 tablespoons per cup.
27
If the bread rises too high
• reduce the amount of yeast. For each teaspoon of yeast,
try reducing the yeast by 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon.
• reduce the amount of sugar. For each tablespoon of sugar,
reduce the amount by 1 to 2 teaspoons.

Taking Care of Your Bread Machine
Caution: Do not put the breadmaker in water or in a
dishwasher. Do not use benzene, scrubbing brushes, or
chemical cleaners as these will damage the machine.
Use only a mild, non-abrasive cleaner to clean the
breadmaker.
General cleaning
30
1
Remove all bread crumbs by wiping them away with a
slightly damp cloth.
2
DO NOT bend the heating
element which is located on the
inside of the breadmaker.
Cleaning the baking pan and kneading blade
1
Wipe the baking pan and kneading blade with a damp
cloth and dry completely.
2
DO NOT wash the pan or parts in the dishwasher. This will
damage the finish of the pan and the other parts.
Caring for your breadmaker
1
Keep your breadmaker clean at all times.
Caution: Do not use metal utensils with the
breadmaker. This will damage the non-stick pan and
other parts.
2
Don’t worry if the color of the bread pan changes over
time. The color change is a result of steam and other
moisture and does not affect the machine’s performance.
3
If you have trouble removing the kneading blade, place
warm water in the bread pan for 10–15 minutes and this will
loosen the blade.
Storing your breadmaker
1
Make sure the machine is clean and dry before storing.
2
Store the breadmaker with the lid closed.
3
Do not place heavy objects on the lid.
4
Remove the kneading blade and place inside the bread
pan.
31
Troubleshooting
Getting Started
If you experience difficulties when operating the breadmaker,
review the troubleshooting information in this section to find a
solution. If you are unable to find a solution, please call our
Consumer Relations Department at 1(800)526-2832.
If you have a power outage
If the power goes out while you are using your breadmaker,
the display will go blank.
• If the breadmaker is kneading the bread, you can restart
the machine and continue.
• If the machine is baking bread, either finish baking the
bread in an oven or start from scratch with a new loaf.
When the power comes back on, you should do the following:
32
1
Hold down the “Start/Stop” button for at least 3 seconds. If
the display does not return to the time setting before the
outage, unplug the breadmaker and then plug it back in.
2
If the machine still does not start, hold down the
“Start/Stop” button a second time for 3 seconds.
Continue to unplug and replug the machine and hold
down the “Start/Stop” button until the display returns to
the cycle time before the power outage.
Understanding Display Information
Your Oster® Breadmaker is designed to give you information on
temperature problems that may occur. The following chart shows
you how to correct problems that may occur from time to time.
Display Problem
What to Do
The display does not light up.
Plug in the breadmaker.
0:00 (“:” flashes)
There is no problem. This just
means the baking cycle is over
and the breadmaker is keeping
your bread warm. Press the
“Start/Stop” button to turn off the
“keep warm” feature.
H:HH (machine beeps)
This just means that the
breadmaker must cool before you
bake another loaf. Press the
“Start/Stop” button. Open the top
of the breadmaker, remove the
bread pan and let the
breadmaker cool about 15 minutes
before baking another loaf.
L:LL (machine beeps)
This means that the room
temperature is too low (59° F or
less). Press the “Start/Stop”
button. Place the breadmaker in
a warm room and allow it to warm
up.
E:EE (machine beeps)
This means that the room
temperature is too high to bake
bread (86° F or more). Press the
“Start/Stop” button to remove the
display. Place the breadmaker in
a cool location before using it.

Troubleshooting Baking Problems
If your bread does not turn out the way you expected or has
some characteristic you don’t care for, review the chart below
for some possible solutions.

been left in the bread pan too
long after baking. Remove the
bread from the pan sooner and
allow it to cool. Try using more
flour (a teaspoon at a time), or
less yeast (1/4 teaspoon at a
time), or less water or liquid (a
teaspoon at a time). This could
also be the result of forgetting to
add salt to the recipe.
34
Baking Problem, continued
Solution
The bread has a heavy, thick
texture.
Try using less flour (a teaspoon
at a time), or more yeast (1/4
teaspoon at a time). This could
also be the result of using old
flour or the wrong type of flour
for the recipe.
The bread is not baked
completely in the center.
Try using more flour (a teaspoon
more at a time), or less water or
liquid (a teaspoon less at a time).
Do not lift the lid too often during
baking.
The bread has a coarse or
holey texture.
This is usually the result of
forgetting to add salt to the
recipe.
The bread rose too much.
Try using less yeast (1/4 teaspoon
less at a time). This could also be
the result of forgetting to add
salt to the recipe or forgetting to
put the kneading blade into the
baking pan.
The bread did not rise enough.
There are several possible
solutions. Try using less flour (a
teaspoon less at a time), more
yeast (1/4 teaspoon more at a
time), or less water (a teaspoon
less at a time). This could also be
the result of:
• forgetting to add salt to the
recipe,
• using old flour or the wrong
kind of flour for the recipe,
• using old yeast,
• or not using hot water (except
for the EXPRESSBAKE™
cycles).
35
Baking Problem, continued
Solution
The bread has a floured top.
This is usually a result of using
too much flour or not enough
water. Try using less flour (a
teaspoon less at a time), or try
using more yeast (1/4 teaspoon
less at a time).
The bread is too brown.
This is usually the result of
adding too much sugar to the
recipe. Try using less sugar (1
Tbsp. at a time). You can also try
selecting a lighter crust color
selection.
The bread is not brown enough. This is usually the result of
repeatedly lifting the lid of the
bread machine or leaving the lid
open while the bread is baking.
Be sure the lid is shut while the
breadmaker is in operation.

Dough
Note: The pan does not get hot when using the dough setting.
Preparing Dough for Baking
1
Lightly sprinkle all-purpose flour onto a pastry mat or
board. Using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, remove
dough from the bread pan and place on lightly floured
surface. Knead by hand 2 or 3 times to release the air. If
the dough is easy to handle without flour, shape on a
lightly oiled, clean countertop.
2
Shape dough into your favorite rolls, coffee cake, etc.
(suggestions follow). Place on greased baking pan. Cover
dough with a clean cloth and let rise until almost doubled
in size (about 1 hour).
3
Bake as directed in the recipe. Remove from pan and cool
on a wire rack or serve warm.
Variations for Shaping Dough
Easy Dinner Rolls
Divide dough into 12 equal pieces,
shape into balls and place in greased muffin
cups. Cover, let rise and bake as directed.
Makes 12
Swirls
Lightly grease baking sheet. Divide
dough into 10 equal pieces. On a
lightly floured surface, using your
hand, roll each piece into a pencillike strand about 10 inches long.
Beginning at one end of the strand,
continue wrapping each piece around the center to form a
61
Dough
swirl. Place rolls 2 to 3 inches apart on prepared baking
sheet. Cover, let rise and bake as
directed. Makes 10
Butterhorns
Lightly grease baking sheet and
set aside. On a lightly floured
surface, roll dough into a 12-inch
circle. Brush dough with melted butter. Cut into 12 wedges. To
shape rolls, begin at wide end of wedge and roll towards the
point. Place rolls point side down, 2 to 3 inches apart, on
prepared baking sheet. Cover, let rise and bake as directed.
Makes 12
Rising
To Reduce Rising Time of Dough
Preheat conventional oven to 200˚F for 5 minutes, then turn off
oven. Shape dough, place on baking pan as directed and
cover with a clean kitchen towel. Place dough in oven until
doubled in size. This will reduce rising time by about one half.
Recipes using whole grain or unrefined flours contain less
gluten and may not rise as much as those using white bread
flour. As a result, these heavier breads may fall slightly in the
center. This is normal and will not affect the taste of the
bread. Wheat gluten can also be added to improve the shape
and volume of bread made with low gluten flours.
Storing
Keeping Your Bread Fresh
There are no preservatives in your homemade bread, so store
cooled loaf in a lightly sealed plastic bag. If desired, enclose
a stalk of celery in the bag to keep bread fresh longer. Do not
store in the refrigerator as this causes bread to dry out faster.
