Eliminate Holes In Bread From Paddles

Despite obvious advantages, bread  machines share a minor drawback  – they leave holes in bread from the paddles. Paddle holes are holes within the loaf made by paddles which knead the dough after you add all the ingredients and press the start button.

Once the loaf is baked, you have to remove these paddles by hand from the loaf itself. The result – a loaf with 2 holes on the bottom, which looks both awkward and unnecessary (especially when you start slicing the loaf). Luckily, there is a way around this imperfection.

The solution is quite simple. The best way to get around this annoying detail is to physically remove the paddles from the machine once they aren’t needed anymore. In order to do this, you’ll either have to overlook the machine in person or check out the manual (n.b look for the ‘table of cycles’). The ‘table of cycles’ shows the duration of each cycle. Ideally, you should interrupt the machine after kneading/before resting.

However, most bread machine manuals aren’t so detailed, so you won’t know when to do that unless you look over the machine. If you are patient enough, wait for the machine to stop kneading, take out the dough from the bread pan and use your hands to remove the paddles. After that, put the loaf back in the bread pan, close the lid and press ‘start’ if your machine doesn’t resume automatically.
