Having your very own bread machine is like having the best kitchen assistant that you can trust when it comes to all types of breads.
A machine is very easy to use. If you want to know how to use a bread machine, then here are the steps:
- The first thing is to check machine manual instruction guide to get idea about whole machine to what functions are consist it with and accessories.
- Next you have to know is the capacity of your bread machine. Obviously, you cannot do more than what it can accommodate, so make sure to read the manual. For instance, if your bread machine says it can only accommodate 2 lbs of bread, then you should only use a recipe that will not go beyond that. Technically, 2 lbs of bread is about 12 cups of liquid. You calculate the capacity of your machine based on the amount of liquid that is required in the recipe.
- The next thing that you have to do is to look for a bread machine recipe. This can be easily found online, so you do not have to worry about it anymore. Also, when you buy a bread machine, you are likely to have a free recipe book where you can find a number of recipes that you can try out. Make sure to get a recipe that you think is easy for you. Try to make it simple, if you are doing this for the first time to avoid disappointments.
Once you already have a recipe, read the instructions carefully, and start your machine. Do what the instruction says, not only to achieve perfectly baked bread, but also to ensure safety for you and your bread machine.
Normally, a typical bread recipe takes 2 to 3 hours. Be patient, and wait for it to finish.
You can also choose the kind of crust that you like for your bread. For instance, if you want it dark, then select the button that will allow your crust to have a crisp dark brown crust, which is perfect for loafs.
- When your bread is done, unplug the cord, and make sure that you are wearing safety kitchen gears like mittens and apron, to prevent burns. Remove the bread by pulling the bucket first out of the machine, and turn it over the cooling rack, to remove the bread inside. Let your bread rest and cool before slicing, in order for you to get the perfect and clean slices for your bread.
