How long does the breadmaker rest during kneading? I tried making dough for cinnamon buns and set it to 1:30mins, after the first 30 mins. The machine stopped kneading but the operating light was still on. Is this normal and how long is the rest period? My dough always come out soft and way too sticky.
I have a bread maker and this is what I did. First I went to a thrift store and went looking for a bread maker book. Second thing I did was go to Wal Mart and get the white bread box thats for bread maker and make it. It was delicious . The Sweet bread one is out of this world too.
It was a lot simpler unless you want to find the company on the net and write them an email asking them for a free one cause it didn't come in your pkg.
Did you Google it ? ? ? Check it out...I just did and a bunch of stuff came up. Everyone should check these search engines and they will surely find, more then 80% of the time, what they are searching for.
Hope these will work for you. I don't have one, but
my daughter has a bread maker and her children love several
different ones. I am NOT sure what kind you like so I will share some with you that her family likes. This time of year she likes to make Pumpkin Bread. I DO NOT know the difference in machines though. This is a pound and a half loaf.
Pumpkin Pie Bread
Ingredients for 1 1/2-lb loaf:
1 cup pumpkin pie mix
2 eggs, large
4 teaspoons butter
1/4 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup raisins
1/2 cup toasted chopped pecans
1 tablespoon vital wheat gluten
3 cups bread flour
1 tablespoon fast-acting yeast
Place all the ingredients in your bread pan in the order listed. Select the Fast cycle. Open the lid after the machine has kneaded the dough for about five minutes. The dough should be formed into a very soft, sticky ball. If the dough is sticking to the sides or bottom of the pan you need to add a bit more bread flour. If the dough is crumbly - not in a ball or the ball appears firm - add more water. Check on you dough until you are satisfied that a soft, sticky ball has formed.
After the machine has completed the baking cycle, remove the pan from the machine and transfer the bread from the pan to a wire rack to cool. If you cut the bread before it has cooled for about an hour, it will look doughy. It must cool completely to allow the structure of the bread to set.
They love whole wheat bread for daily eating.
Whole Wheat Bread

4 teaspoons margarine or butter
2 cups whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 active dry yeast
Add ingredients according to manufacturer's instructions. Select Basic cycle. When baking cycle has ended, let cool to room temperature before slicing.
What does HBD stand for? Basically, I think you have to find out whether you put in wet ingredients first or dry ingredients and go from there. Mine, you put in the wet ingredients first. You can find a lot of recipes for your breadmaker at allrecipes.com
