    I don't understand the basic bread recipe at all. My breadmaker (panasonic) programmes take 4 hours and this is supposed to take 50 minutes. Please tell me how this works!  -  31 Oct 2011


    Ok first of all I have a next bread making machine secondly I am now on my 3rd attempt at following this re wipe and I have had nothing but disasters! I have followed the comments used extra virgin olive oil instead of veg (I think that may be too heavy) and followed method but on next machine there is an ultra fast setting that cooks in the same time as stated on recipe or if I use the basic setting this is a 3 hr shot ( this is what I am now doing for the 3rd attempt, so what am I doing wrong help please losing the will to live!  -  17 Sep 2011
