    I would contact the manufacturer and see if they’ll send you a new paddle. You could also put a small strip of foil over the spindle to increase the friction of the paddle on the spindle.

    Hi Susan,

    For yeast breads set to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 to 35 minutes. For batter or cake breads set oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 45 to 60 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out dry.

    Hi Alice,

    Cakes are usually baked at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes to 60 minutes or until a toothpick or knife inserted into the center comes out dry. If the batter is still wet, continuing baking for an additional 10 minutes until the test yields a dry result.

    Hi Katie,

    The only thing I can figure is that this is not a problem with the yeast, but lifting the lid or a leak in the lid of the machine. That’s what typically will cause any bread to fall. It’s okay to lift the lid during the kneading process or immediately before the rising process, but anytime after during either the rising process or the baking cycle can cause a bread to fall.

    Hope this helps! 🙂

    Hi Laura,

    The cycles you want to have to replicate the pasta dough setting is a combination of a mixing cycle and a kneading cycle BUT NO “RISING” CYCLE. The duration for mixing is usually 5 minutes and kneading for 15 to 20 minutes. You would also not want to have a baking cycle if your goal is to make a dough or batter in the machine.

    Hi Jennifer,

    There are a few things that can cause a bread to fall or “cave.” The usual problem is a draft of air hitting the loaf during the rising or baking process. The reason for this could be a lid that was not properly closed during the rising or baking process, a defect with the lid on the machine, or someone taking a peek at the bread during the rising or baking process. There could also be a problem with the integrity of the rise. The action that causes a bread to rise is the release of carbon dioxide from the yeast. If the yeast is old or not kept fresh it will not produce enough carbon dioxide to maintain the rise. The easiest way to maintain yeast integrity is to refrigerate it immediately even though it’s typically bought “off-the-shelf” at a grocery store. Yeast is a dormant but living organism and old yeast can be a problem. The only other thought is to use “bread flour” instead of all-purpose flour. Bread flour has more gluten and will produce a more stable and reliable rise.
    We hope this helps!

    Hi, yes, you can make barley bread using only barley flour. Instead of adding 3 cups of bread flour to the recipe, just use 4 total cups of barley flour. But be forewarned. Barley flour has very little gluten which yeast needs to rise. You should still add the yeast but it will have less of an effect on the rise of the loaf. Your result will be a crisp, flatbread. It will taste good and has a very rustic appearance, taste and texture but it will be quite dense.

    Hi Kathy,

    The only thing we can figure has to do with the quality of yeast but there are other factors to think about. Yeast is a dormant, living organism. It’s a form of fungus that releases carbon-dioxide while growing and multiplying to cause a dough to literally inflate or rise. The key thing to consider is to always refrigerate any yeast even though you buy it off the shelf at the grocery store. Refrigeration will keep the yeast cells alive and active. The problem many of us face is that we don’t use our yeast with great frequency although that’s not true in our kitchens, but it is possible in some home kitchens. Bread machine yeast is the best. It comes in a jar and while it seems a little pricey, it’s a great value when you consider the amount of yeast you get for the money. However, that quantity will last a long time and it’s all the more reason to keep it refrigerated. The only other possibility is any exposure to air during the rising process. Some bread machine lids need to be pressed down firmly and others actually have a defect that doesn’t allow for a good seal. We’ve occasionally found that to be true in some of the reviews we have done. Most importantly, don’t be tempted to lift the lid on the machine while the bread is rising. That can cause it to fall as well. You also want to make sure your water is warm to around 110 degrees Fahrenheit. Not significantly warmer or cooler. The easiest way to do that is to microwave a cup of water in a Pyrex measuring cup for 40 seconds. That should get you real close to the 110-degree mark. If you have a cup and half of water 60 seconds in the microwave will do the trick. That’s about the best we can figure because you’ve already taken the extra step of trying more yeast. Sorry it’s been a struggle and we hope some of these suggestions help.

    Hi Chris,

    A possible problem is that cornmeal comes in two forms and many grocery stores label both forms the same way: “cornmeal.” One form is very granular and will blend well with the 1 ½ cups of yogurt. The other form has a flour consistency and will not blend as well using only yogurt as a liquid additive. The solution is to pursue the option of adding water to get a batter-like consistency up to one cup.

    No, you don’t have to do the egg wash if you’re not using seeds. But an egg wash gives a nice glistening look to the finished bread. However, if you’re allergic to eggs or have another reason to not use them, that’s okay. The bread will still come out looking and tasting great

    Hi Jane,

    There is nothing wrong with this recipe. A common problem is humidity. If the flour is extra dry it needs more moisture. Adding a tablespoon at a time to get the right consistency is all that is needed. You did the right thing. Also, the other wet ingredients including the molasses and the oil should have helped. I re-baked this using thin recipe and had a good result but you did the right thing adding a bit of water to compensate.

    Hi Barb,

    Sorry to hear that!
    There’s no difference between olive oil and vegetable oil when it comes to a bread recipe so that’s not the problem. You could try omitting salt which inhibits yeast growth; adding an additional teaspoon of yeast, making sure you store the yeast in the fridge and that it’s recently purchased to make sure it is healthy and active. Use bread machine yeast which is more robust or fast-rise yeast which has more active yeast or shutting the machine off after the rising cycle to add more time to the rising time. You’ll have to set a baking cycle only when you turn the machine back on or the kneading cycle will tear apart the dough ball. We’ve kitchen tested this recipe and it should work. It’s possible you need to buy some new yeast and omitting the salt could give it a better chance. Selecting proper settings are also important and the wheat bread cycle is best with the proper loaf weight and crust selection. Sorry you had problems. We’re going to try the recipe again in our kitchens and assess what happens 🙂

    Yes, After the dough cycle and the first rise, remove the dough to a buttered, metal bread pan and let rise again for 45 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes and then slice and serve.

    Hi Amy,

    Even with the gluten from the bread flour the lack of gluten in the ancient grains could need to be compensated for with the addition of the vital wheat gluten. You can try it without the vital wheat gluten if it’s hard to find but you might get a smaller rise from the dough. Another way to compensate for a shortage of gluten in any recipe is to omit any salt from the ingredients or add an additional 1/2 teaspoon of yeast and another half teaspoon of sugar or honey.

    hope this helps 🙂

    Hi Julia,

    The simple answer is no but there is a solution. You can use the basic dough setting, but once the kneading paddle stops remove the dough from the bread pan. Following the kneading cycles on many bread machines there is a rising cycle. This rising cycle subjects the dough to heat to encourage the yeast in the dough multiply to create the rise, but pasta dough does not have yeast. It’s typically a combination of water, eggs and flour but no yeast. If the pasta dough is subject to the heat of the rising cycle it will come out dry and crumbly. You want an elastic dough that can be rolled out on a floured counter-top or in a pasta machine.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Stephanie,

    There are a few things to keep in mind:
    1) The measurements should be very precise.
    2) The water should be heated to 110 degrees Fahrenheit. The easiest way to do this is to microwave the water in a Pyrex measuring cup on high for 40 seconds. The water will be very close to 110 degrees.
    3) Bread machine yeast or active dry yeast work well but both should be kept refrigerated the minute you get them home. Yeast is a living organism even when dry in the jar or package and both age and temperature will affect the how well the yeast will create a rise in the dough and the finished bread.
    4) Bread machine yeast delivers a better rise.
    5) If all of these steps have been followed it’s possible that the bread machine is not allowing sufficient time for the rise. It’s an unfortunate fact, but bread machine settings and cycles sometimes vary. If you suspect that, omit the salt and up the yeast amount to 3 teaspoons.
    6) Make sure you add the ingredients to the bread pan in the order indicated in the ingredient list. The yeast should always be added last on top of the flour.

    You can make gingerbread cookie dough in the bread machine but you need to follow a dedicated gingerbread cookie recipe and either use the paste dough, pizza dough or cookie dough setting which some machines have. If all you have is the dough setting you can add the gingerbread cookie recipe ingredients to the bread pan and select the dough cycle, but remove the dough after the kneading cycle. The basic dough setting has a rising cycle that surrounds the bread pan with heat to allow yeast to rise and that compromises a cookie dough which typically uses baking powder and/or baking soda instead of yeast. Hope that helps

    Hi Katie, I’m sorry to hear that! Here is what went wrong and your options to prevent this from happening again:

    This recipe requires a bread machine with a dedicated “Cake Bread” setting. A regular or basic bread setting won’t work. Precision measures are also important. If the bread machine does not have a dedicated cake bread setting the batter can be made in the bread machine using either a pasta dough or pizza dough setting. Cake breads or batter breads do not rise before baking and the basic bread setting and even the basic dough setting have a rising cycle where heat surrounds the pan so a yeast bread can rise. If a batter bread using baking soda is subject to this rising cycle before baking it will be hard and flat. You can make the batter in the machine and finish in the oven in a buttered baking pan at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 to 45 minutes. Insert a knife or wooden skewer into the center of the lemon cake when done baking and if it emerges wet it needs another ten minutes of baking time. If all you have is a basic dough setting you can use that to make the batter but pour it out after the kneading cycle and before the rising cycle for a yeast bread begins. Hope this helps.
