and help the keeping properties of bread. If you wish to use
margarine based on vegetable oil, ensure that you use the
regular kind. Avoid the “light” varieties as they contain quite
large amounts of water which will adversely affect the bread. If
you are in doubt, read the small print on the container; this will
indicate whether the product is suitable for breadmaking.
The Basics of Breadmaking
An understanding of ingredients and their interaction is
essential to good breadmaking. This short guide will help you
understand some of the processes and the materials used.
is the essential ingredient. It should be fresh, and stored in
cool, dry conditions, preferably in an airtight jar. Use only
breadmaking flour. General-purpose flours do not contain
enough gluten to produce well structured bread.
When substituting oil for butter, margarine or solid cooking
fat, reduce the amount of liquid by around ¾ tbs. to
compensate for the extra liquid content of the oil.
As you will see from our recipes, it is good practice to cut butter
and solid fats into small pieces before using them.
Wholemeal flour contains the whole wheat grain. This results
in heaver denser loaves than bread made with white bread
flour, and takes longer to rise - use the Wholemeal settings for
best results.
Low fat bread can be made by substituting natural low fat
yoghurt for some or all the fat in the recipe, in equal amounts.
Apple purée may also be used. Once again, monitor the
dough and adjust accordingly.
Other flours such as rye are often added to bread flours to
make speciality loaves. As these flours contain no gluten they
cannot be used entirely on their own.
Sugar provides food for the yeast, helps bread to rise and
improves flavour, structure and colour. Almost any kind of
natural sweetener can be used, - all the various sugars, corn
and maple syrup, honey, etc. Once again, when using liquid
sweeteners to replace sugar, reduce the amount of water
slightly to compensate.
Flours vary - millers all have their own special methods, and
age and storage play their part. Although you should always
follow the recipe carefully there are occasions when you may
have to adjust the dough. You may do this a few minutes into
the kneading cycle. Open the Breadmaker lid and gently
touch the dough. It should feel very slightly sticky. If it is sloppy,
add a little flour (½ -1 tablespoon). Allow this to work in and
re-check if necessary. If the dough is too dry, add the same
amount of lukewarm water. Re-check if necessary.
Artificial sweeteners are not suitable for breadmaking.
Salt in bread is NOT just a matter of taste! Salt restrains the
growth of the yeast, and improves elasticity and structure. If
you reduce or eliminate salt from the bread it will rise
excessively - if you use too much salt the loaf will not rise
enough. Use common table salt.
As you gain experience, you will get to know the feel of good
dough. It should be soft and smooth with the faintest sticky
feel, but should leave no residue when turned out of the pan,
as in our recipes for doughnuts and other recipes blended on
the Dough programme.
When adding salt to the bread pan, keep it away from the
yeast by introducing it at one corner. If the yeast comes into
premature contact with salt, the bread will not rise properly.
This situation is obviously more important when using the
delay timer.
The only time you can adjust the quality of the dough is during
the kneading cycle. Once baking commences do not lift the lid
or the bread may spoil.
Whole, semi-skimmed or skimmed milk can be used in
breadmaking but it should always be added lukewarm.
Refrigerated milk must be heated to around 27ºC (80ºF).
Never heat milk above 37ºC (98ºF) as this can cause
problems with yeast.
Yeast is a micro-organism which feeds on sugars and starches
in the bread mix producing carbon dioxide gas which in turn
causes the bread to rise.
We recommend the use of dried fast-acting yeast which is
intended for breadmakers. The instructions on the sachet will
tell you if the yeast is suitable for breadmakers. Easy-blend
yeasts are readily available from branches of Tesco and other
good grocers.
Milk can usually be substituted for water in most recipes, but
the quantity may need to be adjusted - usually slightly higher. If
dried milk features in the recipe, leave it out when substituting
milk for water.
When adding yeast, be especially careful to get the quantity
correct otherwise you could have a disaster on your hands,
especially if you add too much!
Flour is absorbent, its texture will vary to some extent with the
prevailing atmospheric conditions. The amount of liquid may
have to be adjusted if the conditions in your kitchen are
excessively dry or humid. If there is too much water in the
bread it will not rise properly, even to the point of collapse.
Insufficient liquid will result in a poorly structured, lumpy loaf.
Note: Some ingredients, especially garlic and cinnamon can
spoil the quality of your bread if added in excess. Never be
over generous with such additions, use the amounts
recommended in the recipes.
If you are in any way unsure, it is good policy to monitor the
dough while it is kneading, using the notes above.
When baking items containing milk and onions, it is advisable
not to use extended timer settings
These are interchangeable in bread making. Fats add flavour

Before using your Breadmaker for the first time:
Open the Lid. Press the UNLOCK button to release the
lid and open it fully.
Remove the bread pan: Lift the handle and hold it with
both hands. Turn the bread pan anticlockwise
(REMOVE). Lift the pan out.
Filling with Ingredients
CARROT BREAD (Use the Basic Programme)
BRIOCHE (Use the Cake Programme)
Ensure you have all the ingredients to hand. Carefully fill
the pan making sure you don’t leave any ingredients
out. When filling, it is essential that the ingredients are

Dry Ingredients
Lift pan
The ingredients should be at a warm room temperature
(20º-25ºC). If the room is cold (below 18ºC), use warm
water (40ºC) to make sure the yeast ferments fully. To
gauge the temperature if you do not have a
thermometer, heat some water and slowly add this to a
jug of cold water until the resulting temperature is barely
warm to the touch.
Measure and add the water to the pan. Next add the salt
and the other dry ingredients. Finally add the yeast. It is
essential to keep the yeast away from the salt and the
water before mixing commences ore the bread will not
rise properly.
Wash the inside of the bread pan, the kneading paddle,
and the measuring utensils in hot soapy water. Rinse
and dry well. Wipe the interior of the lid and the exterior
of the bread pan and appliance with a damp cloth.
Clean off any spills around the outside of the bread pan
and lower it into the breadmaker, reversing the process
described earlier.
Prepare the Bread Pan: Make sure the drive shaft in
the bread pan is clean and free from crumbs or pieces of
Using the handle, lower the pan into the Bread maker.
Turn clockwise (LOCK) to secure the pan firmly in place.
Position the kneading paddle on the shaft (it will fit only
one way round). Push it firmly into place. If the paddle is
insecure it may come off when kneading and the
ingredients will not be properly mixed.

Recipes - Getting Started
To get you started with your Bread maker, here is a
selection of recipes. The recipes use fast action or easy
bake dried yeast intended for bread makers.
When adding ingredients add the water first, followed by
any other liquid and semi-liquid ingredients. Next add
the flour followed by the other dry ingredients. Tap the
pan lightly on all sides to settle the flour. This prevents the
yeast from coming into contact with the liquids. Finally
add the yeast in a small heap in the centre of the pan.
The Control Panel
The recipe quantities are sufficient to bake a 700
gram loaf. Scale them up for larger loaves.
To avoid conflicts with different measuring systems the
amounts are based on the supplied measuring cup and
spoon. The cup is calibrated in cups, ounces and ml.
The spoon is calibrated in tablespoon (tbsp-15g) and

Example: It is 8.00 p.m. and you want to have fresh
bread (using the Basic setting) at 7.00 a.m.
The difference between now (8:00 p.m) and 7:00 a.m.
is 11 hours. Plug the breadmaker in. The preset cycle of
3:00 hours will be displayed.
Set the display time to 11:00.
(The time difference between now
and when you want the bread)

The START/STOP button serves to start or to stop the
program. Only press START after you have selected the
Menu Program, Crust Colour (and the Delay Time if
required). As the button is pressed you will hear a beep,
the machine will start and the timer display will count
down. The symbol will flash when the machine is running
or the delay function has been activated.
Although the Breadmaker works perfectly well at low
temperatures, if your kitchen is cold the bread may not
be satisfactory. Ideally, bread should be baked in an
ambient temperature around 20ºC (70ºF).
Stopping the Breadmaker in an Emergency
Keep the START/STOP button depressed for 3 seconds.
Only do this in an emergency, as the machine will reset to
the beginning of its program: You must then begin again,
the ingredients may be ruined and need replacement.

Start, Stop & Safety Cut-out
If the bread maker program menu is set at Basic, French,
Whole Wheat, Sweet, Sandwich, beeps are heard during
the second kneading process. These inform you when
extra ingredients may be added. During breadmaking,
open the lid of the Breadmaker only at the times specified.
If the lid is opened at any other time, the quality of the
bread may be adversely affected.
Memory Recall
If the power supply is temporarily interrupted,the process of
bread making will continue automatically when power is
restored. If the power cut exceeds15 minutes the the bread
maker must be restarted manually. If the process has gone
no further than the kneading phase when the power supply
is cut off, you may press the “START/STOP”button to
resume the program from the beginning
Note: Always use a rack. If you leave the bread to cool on
a normal work surface, water vapour in the bread will not
evaporate and the bottom of the loaf may be spoiled.
The next few pages contain a series of recipes to help
you get acquainted with the facilities available on your
new Breadmaker. If you are to get the best results it is
vital that your measurements are careful and accurate
as small differences in key ingredients can have a huge
effect on the final result.
This applies especially when using the delay timer.
Use a clear container for measuring
liquids and measure at eye level. If
you measure from above or below
you will not get an accurate reading. The measuring cup
provided has scales marked in cups, millilitres (ml) and
fluid ounces (fl.oz.) to help you measure the ingredients
correctly. Always fill the liquid exactly to the marked line.
If you are measuring dry ingredients by weight, use a
good pair of kitchen scales calibrated in grammes (and
Imperial if you prefer).
NOTE: Where the abbreviations tsp. (teaspoon) and
tbsp. (tablespoon) appear in the recipes they refer to the
supplied measuring spoon. Use this spoon as other
utensils may not yield the correct amounts. Spoon
measurements must be level. Rounded or heaped
measures may not yield the proper results.
Press the START/STOP button to start the
machine. When the program is completed the display
shows 0:00 and the appliance will beep 10 times. The
1hour “Keep Warm” time is not displayed.
When the program is completed and the bread is
baked the “keep warm” function will operate for a
further hour. After a period of 1 hour the breadmaker
will again beep 10 times and then switch off. For best
results, stop the breadmaker with the START/STOP
button and remove the baking pan within this period.
10. Take care when removing the bread. The baking
pan is very hot. To remove the baking pan open the Lid
and, using oven gloves because the pan is still hot,
remove the pan, Using the handle, twist the pan anticlockwise to the REMOVE position and lift out.

Weighing and Measuring Ingredients
Note: All our recipes and those that are available
elsewhere are based on yeast specially intended for
breadmakers, available in sachet form.
Select the required program by pressing the
MENU button until the number corresponding to the
program appears. Remember to select the loaf size and
the crust colour .
Always unplug the appliance after use.
Note: When the Breadmaker is operating only open
the lid at the prescribed places in the baking cycle.
Failure to observe this will affect the quality of the bread,
especially its ability to rise properly.
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
If the display shows E:EE after you have pressed
START/STOP, the temperature sensor is inoperative. Have
the Breadmaker examined by a competent repair facility.
Lift the lid. Using a pair of oven gloves, remove the pan
from the Breadmaker following the procedure on Page 4.
Place the bread pan on a heatproof surface and leave it
for 10 minutes. Invert the bread pan over a breadboard or
other heat resistant surface and tap the bread pan lightly
to release the bread. The bread should now be allowed to
cool on a heatproof rack before use. If the paddle has got
stuck in the loaf, remove it with a melamine fork or other
suitable tool.
Measure the ingredients as required and add
them all into the pan. There Is no need to mix the
ingredients before hand, the Breadmaker will do this.
Plug the appliance into the power supply (you will
hear one long beep). The appliance will automatically
be set to the BASIC program with the crust setting at
MEDIUM. The display wilI show 3:00
The timer display shows in hours and minutes the total
time left until the bread is finished (including the delay
added and the program time) It does not display the 1
hour "keep warm" time after the program is finished
13. Leave the bread on a rack to cool. Make sure the
paddle has been removed before slicing the bread.
Ensure that the paddle is attached to the spindle
inside the baking pan (this simply pushes on) Make sure
the paddle is fitted the right way round.
If you try to use the Breadmaker when the internal
temperature in is too high the display shows H:HH. Switch
the Breadmaker off, remove the pan, leave the lid open
and wait until the Breadmaker has cooled down.
When the program is completed the display shows 0:00
and the appliance beeps 10 times. The pan may now be
removed from the Breadmaker.
Remember to press the START/STOP button to
commence the timer countdown - otherwise nothing will
happen. 1f you set the timer incorrectly after the start
button has been pressed, you are able to switch off and
reset the delay period again only if mixing has not
Open the lid and remove the baking pan by
raising the handle and twisting anticlockwise to the
REMOVE position. Lift the pan out and place it on the
work surface.

12. Turn the pan upside down and gently tap or
shake the bread from the pan. Occasionally, the paddle
will stay in the loaf; wait until the loaf is cool and then
remove the paddle with a wooden utensil to avoid
damage to the non-stick surface. If you need to aid
removal of bread from the pan use only wooden or
heatproof plastic utensils.
Breadmaker Operating Sequence
Do not overfill the baking pan This will affect the
bread and may damage the appliance. Using the pan

machine in normal orientation. This is particularly
important for the heavier breads.
The capacity of the Breadmaker is sufficient to bake a
22lb (900g) loaf, or to raise the equivalent amount of
dough for baking elsewhere. Do not exceed this amount
otherwise the mechanism may be damaged, or the
dough may rise through the appliance lid.
Let the pan cool for about 10 minutes out of the
