Recent Bread Machine Problem
I just found this forum and it looks amazing, so much great information. I'm pleased to meet you all.
I have been making bread in a bread machine for almost 2 years. I have a black and decker and i've always gotten great results. The last two loaves I made in the last few weeks have come out concave on top and with a weird gooey texture.
The first time it happened I thought it was just an old yeast issue and it was a recipe I was less familar with.
Tonight I tried again with a tried and true recipe and a fresh jar of yeast. I did every thing the same as I always have with this recipe and same thing, totally concave top.
I live in Toronto and it has of course gotten hotter and more humid over the last month, but not southern united states humid. I didn't have this problem last summer, but this summer I live in a converted attic that gets quite stuffy, regardless of my small ac unit.
Could the change in temperature be making such a difference in the bread machine? Or did I do something else wrong? Like I said, I think I followed the recipe precisely, same as always.
Any suggestions would be very appreciated!
