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: —...
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.
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.
Traditional White Bread 2 lb. loaf 1 + 1/3 cups water 4 teaspoons softened butter or margarine 4 cups bread flour 2 tablespoons sugar 4 teaspoons dry milk Carefully measure 1 and 1/3 cups water. Remember, use water that is room temperature.
This takes care of all of the liquid ingredients for the recipe. Next come the dry ingredients. 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.

— 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.
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.

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.
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.
To Use the Delay Timer: flgure 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 Use the “Timer Up” button to advance the time In 10 minute increments.
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.
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.
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 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.
