Make sure you add the ingredients in the right order

You shouldn’t put in the ingredients at random, and it is essential that you follow the recipe. If your recipe doesn’t offer you enough information about the order of the ingredients, here is a simple rule that you can follow: yeast and liquids should be added first, then the dry ingredients, with salt on top of them, and finally butter on top.

When you put in the butter make sure that it is cut up and soft. You should place it in wells, or indentations that exist in the corner of the basket.

Regular yeast is just as good

Many people stay away from bread machines because they are not willing to buy bread machine yeast. The costs are too high, especially if you use the bread machine on a regular basis.

Nonetheless, bread machine yeast is not necessary. You can replace it with regular yeast, and there won’t be much of a difference. Buying regular yeast in bulk can help you save a lot of money. Even if you are not really sure about this, you should try using regular yeast at least once and see if you can tell a difference.

We should also add that you must pull the basket when you are adding your ingredients. This way, if you spill anything you won’t have to clean the inside of your machine as well.

Adding extra ingredients

It is always great to add a bit of extra flavor, and you can use cheese, spices, nuts or other ingredients for that. You should sprinkle these ingredients only when your ball is already forming. Wait until the dough ball almost forms and add the ingredient you want while the bread continues to mix.

Be careful

The bread will be very hot when it is done, and so will the basket. Don’t try to touch the handle of the basket without protection because you will end up burning your fingers. When your bread is done, you should unplug the machine and open the lid. Wait until the loaf cools off before removing it.

You should also keep in mind that the loaf shouldn’t remain in there for too long. If the bread stays in the machine for too much time, there is a chance that moisture will begin to collect on the bottom of the loaf and could start to make it soggy.
