Useful Tips

1. If you are new to this recipe, please try the 1.5LB loaf variant first, as it is the most error-proof compared with the 2LB and 1LB. If you use the Delay Timer, the 1.5LB variant is also recommended to better cope with unpredictable events during the unattended hours. Please set the loaf size using the LOAF SIZE button.

2. This recipe was carefully developed at the normal room temperature 68°F - 77°F (20°C - 25°C) using Instant Dry Yeast. Yeast is the only wildcard for a successful loaf. Yeast performance varies with yeast types, product brands, package-open dates, storing methods, etc. If Active Dry Yeast is used or the yeast package is newly opened, the yeast amount should be increased by 1/4 teaspoon.

3. For the BASIC WHITE recipes, if a loaf rises too high, try reducing the yeast by 1/4 teaspoon; if the loaf does not rise high enough, try increasing the yeast by 1/4 teaspoon; if the room temperature is over 81°F (27°C) and the dough over rises, try reducing the yeast by 1/4 teaspoon. You can increase the salt and the yeast both by 1/4 teaspoon in any BASIC WHITE recipe variant for a stronger flavor.

4. It's recommended to measure yeast by teaspoons; measure flour by weight (grams) instead of by cups. If measure flour by cups, please observe these FIVE precautions: (a) Use US Standard measuring cup or the provided cup (b) Don't use cup to scoop flour (c) Don't fill cup from flour sack (d) Use a big spoon to loosen flour well, scoop flour, then loosely fill the cup (e) Level off flour at the cup top using a dinner knife.

5. Always use oven mittens when removing the bread pan from the machine or removing the loaf from the pan. Please take out the bread pan right after the baking is done, and then wait for 1-2 minutes or 4-5 minutes to remove the loaf from the pan. If the kneading paddle comes off with the loaf, remove it using the provided paddle removal tool. Let the loaf cool down completely before slicing it and then store the slices in a sealed food storage bag to soften the crust.

6. (OPTIONAL) You have the option to add nuts / fruits at the ADD Beep and to remove the kneading paddle at the REMOVE Beep. For the BASIC WHITE menu, the ADD Beep is 48 minutes after the menu starts; the REMOVE Beep is 93 minutes. If you use a timer, set 47 minutes for the ADD Beep; 92 minutes for the REMOVE Beep.
