Help! I keep making Whole Wheat Bricks!
I'm pretty new to breadmaking and I have a Panasonic Bread Maker that I've been happy with so far making nice loaves, and doughs for pita, pizza, and focaccia, but I've thrown away 4 loaves of 100% whole wheat bread that came out like dense bricks! Does anyone have a good recipe out there for a nice light fluffy soft 100% whole wheat bread that works for the Panasonic? Here's what the latest one that i tried - I'm also including the rest and knead times.
3/4 cup of water
3/4 cup of milk
2 tablespoons Canola oil
1/4 cup light molasses
4 cups whole wheat flour (I used King Aurthur's 100% Whole Wheat)
3 tablespoons Gluten
1 3/4 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon bread machine yeast
I place all the ingredients in order - dry first, then wet, and yeast goes in the yeast cup on top. I choose the whole wheat cycle which runs as follows:
- 60 minutes rest
-20 minutes knead
- 2 hours 20 minutes rise
- 50 minutes Bake
Any ideas? This machine unfortunately does not have a programmable option for settign up your own times for kneading and resting so any changes I would have to do manually.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
