  1. Clean and gather all of your utensils. Check that all of your cooking surfaces are clean. Gather all of your ingredients in a convenient place and make sure that your bread machine in properly assembled.
  2. Add the ingredients, in the order that they are listed or recommended by your manufacturer, to the bread pan of your machine. Always remember that when you are adding yeast as the last ingredient, you should make a well or indentation for the yeast to be placed in. The goal behind this is to keep the yeast dry until the right time.
  3. Select the Basic cycle and press start. If you want to check your dough, don’t be fearful of opening the lid to do so. If the dough seems to wet, you can add flour by the tablespoon. If it’s too sticky, do the same with water.
  4. The machine will knead, rise and bake the bread. When it is finished, place it on a cooling rack. Let the bread stand for at least 10 minutes before slicing.

    Yummy! Thank you!!! Changes I made for 2 lb: 1. Used 6 oz coffee as part of the 1 1/2 cups water, 2. Added tiny amount brown food coloring paste (opt), 3. Used 2 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast.
    –Used dough setting. Punched down when completed; divided into 2 and shaped into logs the size of my loaf pans (oiled). Covered with damp towels until doubled (approx 30 min.). Baked 30 min at 350* oven. Removed from pan; rubbed butter all over crust; cooled at least 10 min before cutting. Served with honey butter.

    My son loves pumpernickel. I always bake my bread in the oven after my machine does all the hard work. Any suggestions for oven temp and baking times. I just hate that paddle in my finished product.
