Start With the Bread Machine
Set the bread machine to the “dough only” setting. The machine will combine the ingredients, knead the dough, and give it its first rise. When the bread machine beeps, it means the dough is ready to shape.
How long is the dough cycle on a bread machine? It would depend on the bread machine brand and model but generally the dough cycle would be around 1.5 hours. In the initial 15-30 minutes the bread machine kneads the dough and then it rests which allows the dough to go through the first rise.
What is this? Kneading in a breadmaker can take around 20-40 minutes depending on what you’re making. The kneading is done all at once or broken down into two parts with a rest and rise session in between. Most breadmakers knead dough much like a mixer mixes ingredients.
