Everyone seems to enjoy the convenience of putting all the ingredients into the machine, pressing the start button and leaving it to cook.

SIMPLY NO KNEAD began teaching breadmaking 25 years ago, although it was all by hand. The advent of the bread machine has altered the focus for Simply No Knead. We have seen that there has been a real need for help and advice and so have dedicated ourselves to developing the best bread mixes, with the easiest of recipes to follow and all the information you can possibly use to have great success making your own bread.
We still have the classes and flours for those who continue making bread by hand, in fact we are finding an increasing amount of machine users trying the traditional way of making bread - all by hand.

Using Your Bread Machine on the Dough Setting
One size recipe fits all machines using the dough setting will open up a whole new world of breadmaking for you.
You will be able to make the best hot dog rolls you've ever tasted, doughnuts, hot cross buns etc.
It doesn't matter what the capacity of your machine you can still use the quantities recommended because the machine only mixes the dough so therefore even if you have a small machine you will not have any problems with the amount being too large.
We hope you will find this way of using your machine creative and enjoyable.
Special Instructions for Using your Machine Overnight
Because it is essential that the yeast and water do not come in contact with one another when the machine is being left to come on overnight, please make sure that you separate the yeast from the water with the other ingredients when leaving your machine to come on overnight. If using your machine during the day on the normal settings the ingredients may be put in following the sequence of the receipe, or in any order.
MAKING BREAD DURING THE DAY:
ADD THE INGREDIENTS IN ANY ORDER Simply No Knead bread mix or flour,No Knead Yeast, Water, Oil
MAKING BREAD OVERNIGHT OR PRE PROGRAMMING:
ADD THE SAME INGREDIENTS IN THIS ORDER Water, Oil, Simply No Knead bread mix or flour, Yeast
You can mix and match any of the mixes together in any proportions as long as the final amount does not exceed the weight of the chosen recipe.
95% of failures are from incorrect measuring. You must make sure that the measurements are always accurate. Weigh your flour or bread mix and measure your liquid accurately.
You can add up to 4 tablespoons of grain to your recipe without changing the amount of flour or water eg 2 tablespoons soy grits and 2 tablespoons kibbled linseeds.
Always use Australian metric measuring spoons or cups NOT just any old spoon or cup.
To obtain an accurate measurement when measuring liquid you will find that 20 mls = 1 metric tablespoon and 5 mls = 1 metric teaspoon.
Always measure the liquid at eye level to get an accurate reading.
Ingredients may be put into your machine in any order EXCEPT when using your machine on time delaly, it is then necessary to separate the yeast from the water.
Fifteen minutes before the machine begins the cooking cycle you can lift the lid of your machine, spray the dough with water and sprinkle on sesame or poppy seeds being careful not to scatter them over the element.
If fruit is sticking to the outside of your bread, try adding 2 teaspoons of extra water OR wash the dry fruit in water before adding into the machine OR store dried fruit in the refrigerator.
If you use mixes or yeast other than those specified you will change the outcome of your finished loaf. Our mixes have been specially formulated for these recipes.
The oil can be left out as long as it is replaced by the equivalent amount of liquid. The bread will not be as moist and dry out more quickly.
To keep your bread fresh leave the loaf to cool and wrap tightly in plastic wrap like a second skin.
During the summer months when the humidity is high an extra 1-2 tablespoons of liquid may be needed.
Keep your No Knead dry active yeast and natural improver in the freezer, it will stay both free flowing and fresh for up to 12 months.
Only use the recipes that come with your ingredients, if you use a yeast other than Simply No Knead yeast you will find that the outcome will not be the same as yeasts come in varying strengths.
