RE: doughy spots in center of loaf

According to the Bread Machine Magic Book of Helpful Hints, here are
some solutions for doughy spots in the center or top of a loaf:

The recipe was too large for your machine. Try the smaller size recipe.

If machine has a glass dome, cover it with foil during the baking cycle.
Take care not to let the foil hang down & cover the air vents.

Too much heat escaped from the machine as the bread was baking. Keep
the lid closed.

Too many rich or heavy ingredients & too short a Regular Bake cycle to
bake the bread properly. If your Regular Bake cycle is a Rapid Bake (
3 hours or less), you may need to reduce the fat &/or added ingredients
in certain recipes, such as raisin breads & holiday breads. They take too
long to rise in Rapid-Bake machines unless lightened up.

Hope one of these ideas help Debbie. If you get the Ethiopian Honey
bread to work, maybe you could post it to the list.  Lavon
