    When I let the shapes bread rise, it didn’t rise to top the pan. Any idea why it stopped rising? I waited for 40 minutes.

    Vital Wheat gluten ? I am in the UK

  • Blendtec

    What jar did you use?

  • Karla

    When I tried to mix the dough my blender says "over temperature"

  • Blendtec

    It shouldn’t be over temperature, we’re just pulsing in this recipe, not blending. Did you use a blend cycle? Feel free to call our customer service team at 1-800-748-5400, they are trained to troubleshoot and diagnose over the phone.
