Make sure to remove the dough from pan after completion of the cycle. An audible alert will sound and

Most of your favorite yeast dough recipes can be prepared in your bread maker at the DOUGH Setting,
however, do not exceed 4 cups of flour as the dough will not be kneaded properly. Some minor
adjustment may be needed during the knead period for proper consistency of the dough. See ‘Special
Notes on Flour Section’ for more details on making minor adjustments to the dough during the kneading
If bread maker labors during the kneading period, the dough is too dry. Add 1 tablespoon warm water at
a time until dough softens. Do not add too much extra water as the dough can get too sticky. The dough
should be soft to the touch after kneading.
Dough may be refrigerated up to 3 to 4 days for later use if desired. Simply remove dough from pan and
place into an oiled bowl, turn dough over to oil top and cover tightly. Or, put dough into an oiled plastic
bag and seal. Check dough daily and punch down if needed. When ready to use, shape, rise and bake as
recipe directs.
To freeze dough, shape as recipe directs and wrap tightly. Dough can be frozen for up to one month.
When ready to use, remove from freezer and thaw in refrigerator or at room temperature. Keep covered
to prevent the dough from drying out. Once thawed, allow dough to rise until doubled in size, then bake
as directed.
