Unold breadmaker backmeister 68456 in practical test
For my first loaf, I decided to bake a mixed loaf using program 1.
To do this, I lift the handle of the baking pan a little, turn it slightly to the left and remove the baking pan from the machine. Now I plug in the breadmaker which is included in the scope of delivery dough hook fixed on the shank of the baking pan.
In the next step, all liquid ingredients such as water and sourdough, yogurt, milk, etc. Into the machine, sugar and flour follow subsequently. Now the baking pan is put back again. Then, with the help of the menu key select the appropriate program 1 in the upper left corner.
The time required to finish the bread is shown directly on the display of the bread machine. Now I select the appropriate bread size with the "bread size" button and finally decide on one of three selectable browning levels. Now press the start/stop button and off you go with the bread setting.
The baking result is convincing and the bread has exactly the crust I chose in advance. You will achieve the best baking result if the bread is baked on a grate 15 to 30 minutes can cool for a long time before being cut by them.
