Bread Machine Double Duty

| 4/10/2019 9:00:00 AM

You may be able to cut bread making time in half by mixing and rising two loaves of bread at once.

Depending on the size of the loaves you’re making, your bread machine may be able to handle two batches of bread dough at one time.

This is a fairly easy way to keep up with baking demands. However, the first step in making a double batch of dough work is verifying your bread machine’s flour capacity.

The reasons you want to make sure your machine can handle two batches of dough:

  1. You don’t want to sacrifice bread quality for speed. That would be self-defeating.
  2. You don’t want to burn out your bread machine motor.

To calculate your bread machine’s flour capacity, check the recipes that came with it. If none of them exceed 3, 4 or 5 cups of flour, you know that your adapted recipes should not exceed that many cups either.
