Accurate measuring is essential
It is essential to measure ingredient quantities carefully, even slight
changes may effect loaf quality.
Yeast content
If the loaf rises too high and then collapses, ensure the ingredients
were measured accurately. If the problem persists, reduce the yeast
by a quarter of a teaspoon.

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 program 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 program).
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.
Electrical requirements
WARNING: The plug removed from the mains
lead, if severed, must be destroyed, as a plug with
bared flexible cord is hazardous if engaged into a
live socket outlet.
WARNING: This appliance must be earthed.
Should the fuse in the 13 amp plug require
changing, a 13 amp BS1362 fuse must be fitted.
Check that the voltage on the rating plate of your
appliance corresponds with your house electricity
supply which must be A.C. (Alternating Current).
If the socket outlets in your home are not suitable
for the plug supplied with this appliance, the plug
should be removed and the appropriate one fitted.
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 recipes
The recipes in this booklet have been thoroughly
tested to ensure best results. Recipes have been

Program descriptions
1 Basic white (3:00 and 2:53)
For white and brown bread. Also for flavoured
breads with added herbs and raisins.
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.
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.
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.
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).
12 Extra bake (0:10)
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 10
mins (0:10) minimum and counts down in 1 minute
intervals. You will have to manually switch this off,
by pressing the stop 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 ▲ increases the time in increments of 10
minutes up to a maximum 1 hour.
Do not use the extrabake programme for more than
1 hour, as over heating of the product may occur.
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.

Using your breadmaker
11 Progress
The breadmaker will automatically proceed through the
programmed stages as shown in the ‘Baking cycle
times’ section. If the breadmaker has a program
selected that has a second kneading process, beeps
sound to inform that fruits and/or nuts may be added.
• It is possible that steam will escape through the vents
during baking, this is normal.
1 Take out the pan
Open the lid and remove the pan by lifting the
handle, turning anti-clockwise 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.
12 Finish
When the program is completed and the bread is
baked, the display shows 0:00 and the beeper will
sound.
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.
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 program is completed. 10 beeps will be heard
when the keep warm period is finished.
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.
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.
• Everytime you press a button you will hear a beep to
confirm.
15 Turn out the bread
Allow the bread to cool in the pan 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.
• 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 non-stick surface.
6 Select program
Choose the desired setting from the list by pressing
the Menu button.
7 Select weight
Press Loaf size button to choose between small or
large.
16 Always unplug the appliance after use.
• 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.
8 Select colour
Choose desired crust colour by pressing Colour
button.
9 Select the delay time
If you wish the bread to be ready later, set the time
delay now, as described in next section.
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.
10 Start
Press the Start Stop button to start the machine. The
remaining time will count down in one minute
increments.

Using the timer
Slicing and storing bread
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
10-minute 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 program
time, repeat step 1 and 2.
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 14 ‘Remove the
food’.
For best results, place bread on a wire rack and
allow to cool for 15-30 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) or 2.5cm (1 inch) cubes and used in
favourite recipes to make croutons, bread pudding, or
stuffing.
Drop down blade
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.
Beeper
The beeper sounds:
• when pressing any button;
• during the second kneading cycle of certain
programs to indicate that cereals, fruit, nuts or
other ingredients can be added;
• when the program finishes;
• when keep warm finishes.
Power interruption
After a brief power supply failure
• if the program has not yet reached rise 1, press
Start and the program 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.

Care and cleaning
Storing the unit
1 WARNING: To prevent electrical shock, unplug
the unit before cleaning.
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.
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 paddle becomes stuck in the bread pan, pour
hot water over it and allow to soak for 30 minutes.
This will enable you to remove the paddle 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.

Know your ingredients
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
process.
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.
Oatmeal
Oatmeal comes from rolled or steel-cut oats. They
are used primarily to enhance flavour and texture.
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 will not react
properly with them.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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 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. 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.
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.
• 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.
A conversion table is provided on page 20.

• There are 2 spoons provided to cover all
combinations of quantities in the recipes:
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 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• If the dough you are rolling shrinks back, let it rest
covered for a few minutes before rolling again.
• Dough may be wrapped in plastic and stored in a
freezer for later use. Bring the dough to room
temperature before using.
• 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).
• 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.

Recipes
All of the following recipes use this same general
method:
1 Measure ingredients into the baking pan.
2 Use tepid water 21-28oC.
3 Insert the baking pan securely into the unit, close
the lid.
4 Select the appropriate bread setting.
5 Push the start button.
6 When the bread is done, remove the pan from the
unit using oven mitts.
7 Remove the bread from the baking pan (and the
kneading blade from the bread if necessary).
8 Allow to cool before slicing.
This method is modified by notes, if applicable, at
the end of each recipe.
These recipes have been developed using Allinson

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 recipes
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 10-15 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.

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.

Conversion chart
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.
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.
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.
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.

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 program 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 breadmaker 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.
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 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 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.
Question 20
Why do the loaves vary in height and weight?
The whole wheat/wholewheat 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
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.
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.
