If you're unsure about how to use a breadmaker it couldn't be easier, watch our video on how to use a breadmachine.

7 ingredients6 steps


    1. Step 1

      Ensure the pan is clean and free of residues before inserting securely into the baking unit.

    2. Step 2

      Accurately measure the ingredients into the baking pan in the order as listed. When adding the yeast to the pan, take care the yeast does not come into contact with the water or any other liquid as it will start to activate immediately. 

    3. Step 3

      Close the lid and select the Basic White program 01, 4 hours- 4 hours 5 minutes size XL 'Medium' crust colour. 

      Press the start/stop button once to start the program. Do not open the lid whilst the bread maker is operating. 

    4. Step 4

      To stop the bread maker during the run cycle, press the start/stop button for three seconds, however this will reset the program to the beginning, hence the bake must be re-started using fresh ingredients. 

    5. Step 5

      When the program is completed, the machine beeps 8 times and the bar at the 'End' flashes. Remove the baked loaf from the pan straight away otherwise the bread will become wet from condensation. Use oven gloves during this operation. Using the handle, simply twist the pan anti-clockwise to the 'REMOVE' position and lift out. 

    6. Step 6

      Turn the pan upside down and gently tap the bread from the pan onto a cooling rack. Ensure the kneading blade is removed. Allow the bread to cool completely before slicing.

    If i use the dough button. THEN TAKE OUT THE DOUGH when ready! Do i still need to prove and how many times.? Then what tempersture do I cook a 300g loaf on for how long? Having managed to shaoe like a bllomer loaf?) Please help?

    Baking Mad

    If using the dough button the machine will prove the dough for you. You can make a freeform bread on a baking sheet. I would bake Gas Mark 6 for 20 minutes before checking if it is baked. it might need a further 5-10 minutes.
    Happy Baking!
