  • Page 5: Introduction

    Introduction Bread plays an important role in our diet, providing essential vitamins, minerals and protein. Whole wheat breads made with wholemeal flour and multi-grain loaves are also a good source of fibre. Your bread maker will help you transform a few ingredients into a tasty golden loaf of bread, taking away all the hard work of mixing and kneading as well as lots of washing up.

    Power Interruption Protection Your breadmaker has a 5 – 8secs power interruption protection in case the unit is accidentally unplugged during operation. The unit will continue the program if plugged back in straight away. CARE & CLEANING IMPORTANT: unplug the Bread Maker and allow to cool before cleaning. G DO NOT immerse either the Bread Maker body or the outside base of the bread pan in water.
  • Page 18: Ingredients

    Ingredients The major ingredient in bread making is flour, so selecting the right one is the key to a successful loaf. Wheat Flours Wheat flours make the best loaves. Wheat consists of an outer husk, often referred to as bran, and an inner kernel, which contains the wheat germ and endosperm. It is the protein within the endosperm which, when mixed with water, forms gluten.
  • Page 19 Ingredients Granary Bread Flour A combination of white, wholemeal and rye flours mixed with malted whole wheat grains, which adds both texture and flavour. Use on its own or in combination with strong white flour. Non-wheat Flours Other flours such as rye can be used with white and wholemeal bread flours to make traditional breads like pumpernickel or rye bread.
  • Page 20 Ingredients Fats and Oils A small amount of fat or oil is often added to bread to give a softer crumb. It also helps to extend the freshness of the loaf. Use butter, margarine or even lard in small quantities up to 25 g (1 oz) or 22ml (1 ⁄...
  • Page 21 Ingredients Yeast Yeast is available both fresh and dried. All the recipes in this book have been tested using easy blend, fast action dried yeast which does not require dissolving in water first. It is placed in a well in the flour where it is kept dry and separate from the liquid until mixing commences.
  • Page 22: Adapting Your Own Recipes

    Adapting your own Recipes After you have baked some of the recipes, which follow in this booklet, you may wish to adapt a few of your own favourites, which previously have been mixed and kneaded by hand. Start by selecting one of the recipes in this booklet, which is similar to your recipe, and use it as a guide.
  • Page 23: Removing, Slicing And Storing Bread

    Removing, Slicing and Storing Bread For best results, once your loaf is baked, remove it from the machine and turn out of the bread pan immediately, although your bread maker will keep it warm for up to 1 hour if you are not around. Remove the bread pan from the machine using oven gloves, even if it is during the keep warm cycle.
  • Page 24: General Hints And Tips

    General Hints and Tips The results of your bread making are dependent on a number of different factors, such as the quality of ingredients, careful measuring, temperature and humidity. To help ensure successful results, there are a few hints and tips worth noting. The bread machine is not a sealed unit and will be affected by temperature.
  • Page 25 General Hints and Tips Do not exceed the quantities given in recipes as you may damage your bread machine. If the bread does not rise well try replacing the tap water with bottled water or boiled and cooled water. If your tap water is heavily chlorinated and fluorinated it may affect the bread rising.
