Lora's Tips for Success


If you've never made bread before and don't know what dough is supposed to look like, buy a package of frozen bread dough (available at your local supermarket), and let it defrost according to the package directions. Place it on a lightly floured surface and play with it until you are familiar with the consistency. This is what you're aiming for in the bread machine.

To adjust the dough in your bread machine during the first knead cycle, wait until the ingredients have been kneaded for 3-4 minutes. If the dough looks very wet and is coating the bottom and sides of the pan and not forming a ball, sprinkle in flour, a tablespoon at a time (you may need up to an extra 1/2 cup) while the machine is kneading, until you have a smooth, supple ball of dough. If the mixture is dry and corrugated looking or the dough doesn't hold together, then sprinkle in additional liquid, a little at a time, until the dough is smooth and pliable and forms a cohesive ball. If you've wandered away from your machine and to return to find a wet messy glob or a dry desert thumping around in the machine, press STOP (you can do this at any time—except if the machine has gone into the bake cycle), add a small amount of flour or liquid and press START. Stick around and make additional adjustments, if necessary, until the dough looks right.
