In General

All ingredients should be at room temperature before adding to the bread maker, unless the manufacturer of the machine recommends otherwise.

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions about the order in which you should add the ingredients to the machine.

Select the basic bread setting and cycle unless otherwise noted in recipe.

Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons water or flour, if needed.

Do not use the “delayed baking” feature on your machine for recipes with perishable ingredients that could start to spoil before baking begins.
