Why does the top of the
bread collapse?
Usually this is because the ingredients are not in balance or low protein flour is used. Check the
method of weighing/measuring the ingredients. Too much yeast, water or other liquid ingredients,
or insufficient flour, may cause the bread to be pale on top and collapse while baking.
Why does the bread
sometimes vary in height
and shape?
• Bread is sensitive to its environment so can be affected by altitude, humidity, weather, room
temperature, length of the Delay Start timer and fluctuations in household current. The
bread shape can also be affected if stale ingredients are used or are incorrectly measured.
Why is my whole wheat loaf
shorter than my regular
white loaf?
• Whole wheat flours and some specialty grains do not rise as well as bread flour. The result
will be a shorter and smaller loaf.
Why does bread color differ? • Ingredients and their properties can cause the loaf to brown differently. Try changing the
crust color or modifying the baking temperature and/or time. Also, the crust may have
darkened during the ‘keep warm’ phase. We recommend removing the bread before the
‘keep warm’ phase begins.
Why does bread sometimes
have a strange odor?
• Too much yeast or stale ingredients, particularly flour and water, can cause odors. Always
use fresh ingredients and accurate measurements.
Why does flour sometimes
stick to the side of the bread?
During the ‘knead’ phase small amounts of flour may sometimes stick to the sides of the bread
pan and bake onto the sides of the loaf. Scrape the floured portion from the outer crust with
a sharp knife. The next time you try the recipe, if necessary, during the ‘knead 2’ phase use a
rubber spatula to fold in any unmixed flour from around the edges of the bread pan. This is
especially important on the GLUTEN FREE and YEAST FREE settings. You may want to spray
the bottom and halfway up the sides of the bread pan with cooking oil before adding ingredients
for your yeast free breads, and use a rubber spatula to loosen the loaf before turning out.
