Allow us to help you remember the video’s important details with the following information:

  • Make sure the bread machine‘s current setting is the “Dough” program.
  • Directly put the ingredients in the machine’s pan.
  • Roughly combine the ingredients, preferably with a nonstick spatula or scraper (use the same tool when removing residues around the pan during the process).
  • To help you remove residues, sprinkle bread flour from time to time.
  • When the pan’s sides are already clear enough and the dough becomes a smooth ball, close the machine’s lid or cover.
  • Once the cycle is over, leave the machine unattended for one hour to let the dough rise.
  • To shape the dough, feel free to remove it from the pan.
