New Bread Machine..Or Me?Chef MunkyMy guys picked me up this goodie. [URL="http://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-CBK-200-Convection-Automatic-Breadmaker/dp/B0009VELTQ"]Amazon.com: Cuisinart CBK-200 2-Pound Convection Automatic Breadmaker: Kitchen & Dining[/URL]
Here I'm trying to downgrade the kitchen. They couldn't pass up a good deal. They said I needed another one. My eye! They want more bread! Fancy bread at that.:lol:
I tried my TNT recipe that works well with my other bread maker in this model. Just a simple 1Lb loaf.
Picked the correct settings. It did what it should have.. I think. It didn't come with a manual. I have it on a PDF. Read that. Ok, on track so far.
Everything was fine until it went into bake cycle. When I checked on it the whole loaf had deflated like a flat tire. It was so funny. I was shocked. Laughed it off anyways. Looked like a sink hole.:rofl: let it finish baking.
My other bread maker isn't a convection. So what happened with that loaf? It cooked to a nice med brown crust. Evenly cooked on all sides. What do you call flatness in techie terms. I'm not a baker. All of the ingredients were fresh.
Are Convection bread makers that different from the standard models?
Did I miss a secret tip along the way?
Here's the TNT I usually use.
1C. warm water
1 package of yeast.
Let it rest until it foams
Then I add the rest of the ingredients and let it go.
1/4 C Vegetable oil
3C AP flour
Last night I added the liquids first. Then the rest. Just like the video showed.
They ate it anyways. Said it tasted the same as the other.
Open for suggestions.
