The bread maker can be used to help make any dough that requires hand molding after it has been mixed and kneaded. Insert the pan into the bread maker. Be sure it is locked in place. Attach the kneading blade inside the pan. Add the liquid ingredients from your recipe first. Then add the remaining dry ingredients. Keep the yeast and salt in separate corners. Salt will kill the yeast if it touches it in concentrated form. Close the lid. On the Select pad, choose the "Dough" cycle. Once the machine beeps and the timer is at zero, remove the pan from the bread maker. Tip the dough out onto a floured surface and finish the recipe.
Baking a loaf of bread is similar to making dough. Insert the pan and attach the kneading blade. Add the liquid ingredients from the recipe. Next add the dry ingredients. Close the lid. On the Select pad, choose the "Basic" setting. On the Crust color pad, choose your setting from light, medium or dark crust. Press "Start." Once the bread maker beeps, and the timer is set to zero, use an oven mitt to remove the pan. Turn the bread pan over and gently shake the pan until the loaf of bread slides out. Cool the bread and then slice it.
Believe it or not, this machine can make jam. Insert the pan and attach the kneading blade. Add the ingredients from the recipe. A typical recipe will include sugar, pectin, fruit and lemon juice. Close the lid and press "Start." Allow the machine to mix for 5 minutes. Scrape the sides a couple of times while it is mixing. Press "Stop." On the Select pad, choose the "Bake" setting. Press "Start." Once the machine beeps and the timer reads zero, press "Stop." Remove the pan with an oven mitt. Pour the jam into containers. The jam can be stored in a refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
