I currently have 2 ABM machines. I have noticed that when using both to make dough, one never rises as well as the other. Note that they are identical machines. I took a tip from another CT blogger, and decided to try making and baking (I usually only use an ABM to mix and rise dough, then bake conventionally but with this heat-not an option!)a banana bread. The dough mixed fine in machine # 1 but didn't bake and the machine was cold. Broken heating element? So, I tagged that machine, moved the filled bucket to machine # 2, which got hot and produced this:
Looks goofy, silly hole from the paddle of course, not shaped/risen as usual but was that due to using self rising flour? the 2 x's processed mix? Hopefully it's edible, I got the recipe on line.
