Improvers are additives used to quicken the rising time increase volume and enhance texture. Salt is one of the most common improvers; it is used to enhance flavour and the crumb (the inside of the bread) by strengthening the gluten. Improvers may include ascorbic acid and ammonium chloride. Certain fats such as butter vegetable oils lard and egg fat are solid at room temperature. These shortenings as they are known are used to keep the structure together during the development of the gluten. A fat content of about 3% by weight is considered best to enhance leavening. Fats also help tenderise bread and preserve its freshness. Cooking is usually by baking in an oven. But bread can be made by frying in oil (eg Indian puri) baking on a dry frying pan (eg Mexican tortillas) and by steaming (eg Chinese mantou).
If you have a model that doesn t have a built in timer use the bake cycle while keeping a close eye. Bake cycles on machines that don t have a timer are often set in 15 minute increments. Choose the one that most closely matches your recipe s requirements. If your cake starts to smell before the bake cycle ends check it Cakes often begin to smell delicious when they finish or are in the last stages of baking. Jams Fresh jam is a treat no matter how you make it but bread machines make some of the best jam around. Almost every bread machine on the market has a jam cycle. There are a few things you need to have in mind before making jam in your bread machine though. Doubling recipes for jam in a bread machine is a no-no. If the jam overflows you can actually destroy the heating element.
As you can see bread can contain ingredients that those of us who have type 2 diabetes need to avoid... salt and fats. It pays to check the labels. Leavening Leavening is the adding of gas to the dough creating bubbles that make it swell up. This makes the bread lighter and easier to chew. When flour and water are combined to make dough the starch in the flour mixes with the water to form a matrix. When this mixture is leavened (ie gas is added) the dough rises . Then when it sets the bubbles remain trapped in the dough. There are several ways dough can be leavened. However most types of bread are leavened using biological agents containing micro-organisms that release carbon dioxide as part of their life-cycle. These are either yeasts or sourdough starters. Yeast ferments some of the carbohydrates in the flour.
