Why isn't my bread rasing in my bread machine?
i am knew to bread making. The other week I baught a used bread machine, looked up a user manual online and have attemped to make bread about 7 times. I have bread flour plus fresh ground wheat. I have 2 differant yeasts, 1 in a jar the other from the bakery.
My problem? When done I get this short 5 inch round loaf.
The machine is a Welbilt, 2 cup flour model. I have tried 3 differant resipes, differant temp water, taking it out and baking it in my oven, not adding salt, adding more yeast. When I took out the dough to bake it in my oven, it didn't raise as much as I thought it would, then colapsed while baking.
Maybe this is how it's suppose to be. I thought it would be as tall as the bucket at least.
Help. It teasts great but is heavey.
