7-Minute Power Failure Back-Up
Your Breadman® Bread Maker has a 7-minute power failure
back-up feature. If the electricity goes out, the memory will
store your cycle selection for up to 7 minutes. If the power
comes back on within this time, bread making will resume
where it left off.
If the bread maker loses power for more than 7 minutes and
you are using any dairy products, perishables or meat in your
bread, you should discard the contents of the recipe and start
again with new fresh ingredients due to health and sanitary
considerations. For nonperishable recipes you may try starting
the bread maker at the beginning of the cycle again. However,
this may not always produce an acceptable loaf of bread.
If you are not sure when the outage occurred, remove the dough
and discard.

Used for breads that primarily include white bread flour,
although some recipes may include small amounts of whole
wheat flour.
Whole Wheat
Used for recipes with significant amounts of whole wheat or
rye flour, oats or bran. Whole wheat cycle begins with rest
period during which flours or grains absorb liquid ingredients.
Soaking causes flour or grain to soften and helps ingredients
to combine. Generally, whole wheat and multi-grain breads are
shorter and denser than white, French or sweet.
Traditionally, French bread has a slightly crispier crust and
lighter texture than white bread. Recipes usually do not include
butter, margarine or milk.
Used for recipes that contain eggs, fruit juice, additional sugar
or added sweet ingredients such as coconut flakes, raisins,
dried fruit or chocolate. Baking temperature is reduced to
prevent burning.
Used for gluten-free recipes.
Quick Bread
Used for recipes that contain baking powder or baking soda,
rather than yeast, to make bread rise. Cake recipes made from
scratch must be specially designed for this cycle.
Use to prepare dough for making bread, rolls or pizza which
are shaped and allowed to rise before baking in a conventional
oven. This program blends and kneads the dough and takes it
through the first rise.
Low Carb
Used for recipes that are lower in carbohydrates.
Use to prepare preserves, marmalade, chutneys and ketchup. Add fruit, sugar and lemon juice for homemade preserves – a great topping for homemade bread, waffles and ice cream.
All-Purpose Flour
All-purpose flour is a blend of refined hard and soft wheat flours ideally suited for making quick
breads and cakes.
Bran (unprocessed) is coarse outer portion of wheat or rye grains that is separated from flour
by sifting or bolting. It is often added to bread in small quantities for nutritional enrichment,
heartiness and flavor. It is also used to enhance bread texture.
Used for White, Whole Wheat and Sweet cycles to decrease
time to approximately 1 hour. Choose recipe, then simply add
½ tsp. to amount of yeast listed for a 2-lb. loaf. Bread may be
shorter and denser than bread made using the longer program.
Bread Flour
Bread flour typically has higher gluten concentration than all-purpose flour. Using bread flour
will produce loaves with better volume and structure.
Cornmeal and Oatmeal
Cornmeal and oatmeal come from coarsely ground white or yellow corn and from rolled or
steel-cut oats. They are used primarily to enhance flavor and texture of bread.
Cracked Wheat
Cracked wheat has very coarse texture. It comes from wheat kernels cut into angular fragments. It gives whole grain breads a nutty flavor and crunchy texture.
Bake Only
Used if crust is too light or you wish to bake pre-made dough – also especially useful if your bread is not quite done.
Check every few minutes. Bakes for up to 1 hour, 30 minutes.
Rye Flour
Rye flour must always be mixed with high proportion of bread flour, as it does not contain
enough gluten to develop structure for high, even-grained loaf.
Self-Rising Flour
Self-Rising Flour is NOT RECOMMENDED for use with your bread maker. Self-rising flour contains leavening ingredients that will interfere with bread and quick bread making.
7 Grain Cereal Blend
7 grain cereal blend is a blend of cracked wheat, oats, bran, rye, cornmeal, flax seeds and
hulled millet. It is used primarily to enhance flavor and texture of bread.
Vital Wheat Gluten
Vital Wheat Gluten is manufactured from wheat flour that has been treated to remove nearly
all of the starch to leave a very high protein content. (Gluten is the protein in wheat that makes
dough elastic.) Vital Wheat Gluten is available at most health food stores. It can be used in
small portions to increase volume and lighten texture.
Whole Wheat Flour
Whole wheat flour is milled from the entire wheat kernel, which contains the bran and germ.
This high fiber flour is richer in nutrients than all-purpose or bread flour. Breads made with
this flour are usually smaller and heavier than white loaves. Many recipes mix whole wheat
flour with bread flour or vital wheat gluten to produce higher, lighter-textured bread.
Tips on Flour Storage
Keep flour in a secure, airtight container. Store rye and whole
wheat flours in a refrigerator, freeze or a cool area to prevent
them from becoming rancid. Allow flour to come to room
temperature before using.
Note: Flours, while visibly similar, can be very different in how
they are ground, milled, stored, etc. You may have to experiment
with different brands of flour to help you make the perfect loaf.
See RECIPE TIPS to assist with these experiments.
Active yeast, through a fermentation process, produces carbon
dioxide gas necessary to make bread rise. Yeast feeds on
carbohydrates in sugar and flour to produce this gas. Three
different types of yeast are available: fresh (cake), active dry and
quick-acting. Quick, rapid rise and bread machine yeasts are
quick-acting. Fresh (cake) yeast is NOT RECOMMENDED for use with your bread maker.
Tips on Yeast
Ensure your yeast is fresh by checking its expiration date.
Ideally, yeast should be used several months before the
expiration date. Once a package or jar of yeast is opened, it is
important that the remaining contents be immediately resealed
and refrigerated or frozen for future use. Often dough that fails
to rise is due to stale yeast.
Note: Basic bread and dough recipes in this booklet were
developed using active dry yeast. You may use chart below to
substitute any quick-acting yeast (quick rise, fast rise or bread
maker yeast) for active dry yeast.
Conversion Chart for Bread Machine Yeast
¾ tsp. bread machine yeast = ½ tsp. quick-acting yeast
1 tsp. bread machine yeast = ¾ tsp. quick-acting yeast
1½ tsp. bread machine yeast = 1 tsp. quick-acting yeast
2¼ tsp. bread machine yeast = 1½ tsp. quick-acting yeast
1 tbsp. bread machine yeast = 2 tsp. quick-acting yeast
Rapid Cycles
Rapid cycle settings for White, Whole Wheat and Sweet
decrease time for making your favorite bread in approximately
1 hour. Choose recipe, then add an additional ½ tsp. of bread
machine yeast to the recipe. The bread may be shorter and denser.
Important: Exact measurements for ingredients are the most important part of baking. It is the key to getting great texture
and consistency in your bread. Make sure to measure all ingredients exactly.
Baking Powder
Double-acting baking powder is a leavening agent used in quick breads and cakes. This type of leavening
agent does not require rising time before baking, as chemical reaction works when liquid ingredients
are added and again during baking process.
Baking Soda
Baking soda is another leavening agent, not to be confused or substituted for baking powder. It also does not require rising time before baking, as chemical reaction works during baking process.
Eggs add richness and velvety texture to bread dough and cakes. When recipe calls for egg(s), large egg(s) at room temperature should be used.
Butter, margarine and oil shorten or tenderize the texture of yeast breads. French bread gets unique
crust and texture from the lack of added fat. However, breads that call for fat stay fresh longer. If butter is used directly from refrigerator, it should be cut into small pieces for easier blending during kneading process.
All liquids should be warm 80ºF/27ºC to 90°F/32°C for all recipes. Liquids, such as milk, water or a
combination of powdered milk and water, can be used when making bread. Milk will improve flavor, provide velvety texture and soften the crust, while water alone will produce a crispier crust. Vegetable
or fruit juices and potato water may be used for flavor variety.
Salt is necessary to balance flavor in breads and cakes; it also limits growth of yeast. Changing the
amount of salt in a given recipe may result in shorter, gummier bread. When first making a type of
bread, do not increase or decrease amount of salt shown in the recipe.
Sugar is important for color and flavor of breads. It also serves as food for yeast since it the supports
fermentation process. Recipes in this book that call for sugar require granulated sugar.
Important: Do not substitute powdered sugar. Artificial sweeteners cannot be used as substitute,
as yeast will not react properly with them.
• In high-altitude areas (over 3,000 feet) dough tends to rise
faster, as there is less air pressure. Therefore, less yeast is
• In dry climates, flour is drier and requires slightly more
• In humid climates, flour is wetter and will absorb less liquid,
so less liquid is required.
How to Use
This product is for household use only.
• Remove packing materials and any stickers.
• Please go to to register your
• Place bread maker on dry, stable, level surface away from
heat and areas where cooking grease or water may splatter
on unit. Do not place near edge of countertop. If placing
beneath cabinets, make sure there is enough room to open
the lid without interference.
Important: Your bread maker will bake up at 2½-lb. loaf.
Do not put larger quantities of ingredients into bread pan.
Bread will not mix and bake correctly and bread maker may
be damaged. (See maximum ingredient amounts.)
• Before first use, operate on Rapid White cycle without
adding ingredients to burn off manufacturing oils. (Follow
instructions in using your bread maker.)
Note: During first use, bread maker may smoke and/or emit an odor from mineral oils used in manufacturing. This
is normal.
• Bread cycles: approximately 5 cups
• Quick breads: 4 cups
• Dough cycle: 4 2/3 cups
• Jam: 3 cups of fruit mixture
Bread Pan tips
Inserting bread pan
Note: Remember to insert kneading paddles first, then add all
ingredients in the order listed BEFORE inserting the bread pan
into baking chamber.
Important: Collapsible kneading paddles may fall when
ingredients are added. This is normal. They will stand up
when kneading begins.
• When inserting bread pan into bread maker, make sure to
set firmly in place.
Removing bread pan
• To remove bread pan from baking chamber, hold handle with
an oven mitt and lift straight up.
Important: When you remove bread pan after baking, be sure
to wear oven mitts to prevent burning.
• After removing loaf (by turning bread pan upside down
and shaking gently), check to see that kneading paddle is
removed from loaf. If it is stuck in bread, allow bread to cool;
then use the paddle removal key to remove it, taking care not
to scratch the kneading paddles. Allow bread to cool before
removing the kneading paddles.
Checking Dough Consistency
Although your bread maker will mix, knead and bake
bread automatically, when baking bread from scratch, it is
recommended that you learn to recognize condition of your
dough. The ratio of flour to liquid is the most critical factor in
any bread recipe, yet the most easily remedied. After 5 to 8
minutes in Knead 2, open bread maker to check consistency
of dough. Dough should be in a soft, tacky ball (feel sticky like
scotch tape). If it is too dry, add 1 tsp. of liquid at a time. If it is
too wet, add 1 tbsp. of flour at a time.
Using your bread maker
Note: D
epending on the cycle or recipe used, some steps may

Important: Do not use the automatic fruit and nut dispenser
with the 1-lb. bread pans.
9. Follow directions from step 12 to 15 in USING YOUR BREAD
MAKER to finish baking.
Slicing and Storing Bread
For best results, place bread on wire rack and allow to cool at
least 20 minutes before slicing. Use electric knife or serrated
knife for even slices.
Store unused bread, tightly sealed (sealable plastic bags or
plastic containers work well) at room temperature for up to
3 days. For longer storage, (up to 1 month) place bread in
sealed container in freezer. Since homemade bread has no
preservatives, it tends to dry out and become stale faster.
Leftover or slightly hardened bread may be cut into ½-inch
or 1-inch cubes and used in recipes to make croutons, bread
pudding or stuffing.
Important: Delay baking does not activate JAM cycle. Do not
use delay bake timer if your recipe includes perishables, such
as, eggs, fresh milk, yogurt
or other dairy products and meats, etc.
To preset your bread maker, follow these steps:
1. Add ingredients in the order listed as usual, taking care not
to let yeast and liquid ingredients contact one another.
Note: If your recipe contains salt, add it with the liquid
ingredients, taking care to keep it away from the yeast.
2. Close bread maker lid and plug it in.
3. Press MENU to choose cycle. Time needed for selected cycle
appears in display window.
4. Press ▲ to add time in 10-minute intervals. (Use ▼ to
subtract time.) Amount of time set is shown in display
• To fast-forward time, continually press ▲ .
• To fast-reverse, continually press ▼ .
• For example, if it is 8:00 AM and you want bread ready at
1:00 PM, press ▲ until the display reads 5:00 – meaning
it will finish baking in 5 hours. This is the hour difference
between 8:00 AM and 1:00 PM.
Note: Actual baking times will not change.
5. Press LOAF to choose loaf size, press CRUST to choose crust
color, then press START to begin timer. The colon (:) in time
display begins to flash, letting you know timer is started.
When your bread is finished baking, bread maker will beep
and “0:00” will appear in display window. Press START/STOP
and open lid.
6. If you make an error after you’ve activated program and want
to start over, press and hold START/STOP for approximately
5 seconds. Timer will clear and you can begin again.
Bake Only
The Bake Only cycle offers the flexibility to vary time. You can
bake pre-made dough or dough purchased at the store using
this cycle. You may also use this cycle if crust color is too light
or if your sweet bread is not quite done. Check every
few minutes.
1. Press the menu button and move to cycle 13.
2. Adjust the amount of time you need up to 90 minutes.
3. Press START to begin baking.
Special Glazes for Yeast Breads
Select one of the following special glazes to enhance your
• Melted Butter Crust: Brush melted butter over just-baked
bread for a softer, more tender crust.
• Milk Glaze: For a softer, shiny crust, brush just-baked bread
with milk or cream.
• S
weet Icing Glaze: Mix 1 cup sifted confectioner’s sugar with
1 to 2 tablespoons of milk, water or fruit juice until smooth.
Drizzle glaze over raisin or sweet bread when they are
almost cool.
Note: I f desired, generously sprinkle with your choice of nuts or
seeds after glazing.
Dough Cycle
Tips for Best Results
• If using delay bake timer, make sure yeast is on top of flour,
away from liquids.
Important: Never allow dough to remain in bread maker after
cycle is complete; it may over rise and damage machine.
• Rising times for dough after it is shaped and placed in
baking pan will vary due to recipe, temperature and humidity
level of your kitchen. Optimum temperature for rising is 80°–
85°F. Rising is the most essential feature in bread making.
• Bread maker allows dough to have first rise or fermentation
before dough is removed. Fermentation conditions gluten,
(becoming pliable and elastic with a soft, smooth quality)
develops flavor and leavens product.
• Sometimes a double rising is beneficial especially for whole
grain or 100% whole wheat bread. Let dough rise once in
bread maker. Remove from bread maker, punch down, let
rise again, punch down and let rest 10 minutes. Resting
allows gluten to relax and makes handling easier. Shape as
esired and allow to rise until doubled in volume. If only d
1 rise is desired, remove from bread maker, let rest, shape
and rise as above.
• Baker’s Tip: Dough has doubled in volume when an
indentation remains after tip of a finger is pressed lightly
and quickly into dough. If indentation springs back, cover
and let rise a few more minutes and check again.
Important: For use only with the Dough Cycle
• Always allow optimum rising of shaped dough.
• Use pastry brush to apply glaze.
• Bake as directed in recipe.
Apply Just Before Baking
Egg Yolk Glaze
For shiny golden crust, mix 1 slightly beaten egg or egg yolk
with 1 tbsp. water or milk.
Egg White Glaze
For shiny, chewy crust, mix 1 slightly beaten egg white with 1 tbsp. water.
If desired, sprinkle chopped nuts or fruit and/or seeds after glazing.
Lightly Floured
Sprinkle enough flour onto work area so dough can be handled
without sticking.
Shaped Rolls
Important: Once rolls are shaped, cover and let rise until
doubled before baking.
Cloverleaf Rolls
Shape into ½-inch balls. Place 3 balls in each greased muffin tin.
Crisscross Rolls
Shape into balls, setting 2 aside. Combine balls and roll into
a 1/8-inch thick square. Cut strips 1/8-inch wide and 2-inches
long. Brush top of roll with beaten egg. Place 1 strip across top
of each ball. Repeat process, placing second strip in opposite
direction across top of each ball.
Traditional Rolls
Shape into balls. For “pull apart” rolls, place dough balls with
sides touching in 8 or 9-inch round or square greased baking
pan. For “individual” rolls place dough balls 2 inches apart.
Crescent Rolls
On lightly floured board, roll dough to 12-inch circle. Spread
with softened butter. Cut into 16 wedges beginning at wider
end. Place rolls 2-inches apart on greased baking sheet with
points underneath; curve rolls slightly. If desired, brush with
melted butter just before baking. Rosettes
On lightly floured board, roll about 1½ oz. piece of dough into 14-inch rope. Tie in a loose knot, leaving 2 long ends. Tuck one
end under knot and second end into the top center of the loose
knot. Place 2-inches apart on lightly greased baking sheet.
JAM cycle
1. Following steps in USING YOUR BREAD MAKER; select Jam cycle.
2. Once Jam cycle is complete, remove bread pan from bread
maker and pour hot mixture into heat-safe jars, leaving ½”
of space at the top.
3. Allow to partially cool. Cover tightly to store. Mixture will
thicken upon cooling.
Tips for Best Results
Care and Cleaning
• D
o not reduce sugar or use sugar substitutes. Exact
amounts of sugar, fruit, and other ingredients are necessary
for good set.
• Use only ripe fruit (not overripe or under-ripe) for best flavor.
• Do not puree fruit. Jam should have bits of fruit in it.
• Recipes should not exceed 3 cups fruit.
• Remove stems, seeds or pits from fruit.
• You may use strawberries, blackberries, raspberries or
other thin skinned berries. Fruit such as peaches, pears and
apricots may be used, but should be peeled and have seeds
• Frozen berries or fruit (no sugar added) may be substituted
for fresh. Thaw and drain before measuring. For thinner jam,
use juice as part of 3 cups of berry or fruit amount.
• Lemon juice adds necessary acid to berries or fruit.
• You may decrease amount of sugar, but it will produce a
thinner result. More sugar will make it thicker. For best
results, sugar substitutes are not recommended.

Why does height and shape of bread differ in each loaf?
Height and shape of bread may differ depending on the ingredients, room temperature and length of timer cycle. Also, accurate measurement of ingredients is essential to make delicious bread.
Bread has unusual aroma.
Stale ingredients may have been used or too much yeast may have been used. Always use fresh ingredients. Accurate measurements are essential to make delicious bread.
Kneading paddle comes out
with bread.
This can happen, as kneading paddle is detachable. Use a nonmetal utensil to remove it.
Caution: Kneading paddle will be hot. Allow bread to cool before removing paddles.
Bread has floured corners.
Sometimes flour in the corners of the bread pan may not have been completely kneaded into
dough. Scrape it off the loaf with a knife. Check bread about 10 minutes into kneading cycle.
If all flour is not incorporated, use a rubber spatula to remove the flour from the sides of the
bread pan so it can be incorporated into the dough.
Can ingredients be halved or doubled?
NO. If there is too little in bread pan, kneading paddle cannot knead well enough. If there is too much, bread rises out of bread pan.
Can fresh milk be used
in place of dry milk?
YES. Be sure to decrease same measurement of water to equal liquid substitution. Fresh milk is not recommended when using delay bake timer, because it may spoil while sitting in bread pan.
