Maunty's Baking Tips

Bread Mix:

  • Using bread machine & oven combined: select "dough setting," when ready, place dough in a prepared loaf pan for cooking in your oven
     

  • Tips to ensure your dough rises:  turn the oven light on and place a mug of boiling water to create a warm and humid environment for the dough to rise for a minimum of 20 minutes
     

  • Pan selection: type of pan makes a difference, using glass is colder, it may slow the process for the dough to rise, perhaps warm the glass with hot water before putting your dough in.  During cooking; note that glass retains heat longer, therefore cooking time may vary
     

  • Tin pans warm quickly, ideal for the dough to rise and may need less cooking time
     

  • An 8-inch loaf pan is recommended 

Pancake Mix:

  • To thicken batter, allow to rest at least 15 minutes before pouring
