Read the manufacturer’s instructions on how to use your bread machine especially when it comes to:
- the order you add ingredients to your bread maker
- the setting you need to choose for the type of bread you are making
- the setting you need to choose for your desired crust when applicable
Be aware that your bread maker will likely beep multiple times during the bread making process, be sure to figure out which one signals the end as many bread machines will stay on warm mode. This will further cook your bread’s over time and may burn your bread.
