Troubleshooter

When your Basic Ingredients bread does not come out as expected, check the table below to find out what could have gone wrong.

 

When your machine starts mixing, open the lid after 10 or 15 minutes. A ball of dough should have formed by now. If it looks too “wet”, add a little water. After 20 minutes, no dough should stick to the tin walls. If all else fails, give us a ring or an email and we’ll try and sort it out.
