Help me please (newbie)

February 2, 2012 - 10:02am -- james67543

Hello everybody, I have just started baking my own bread and it is so much more fun and tastier (and healthier I am sure) than supermarket bought.

There is one big problem that I have which is becoming very very frustrating and starting to make me feel like I should just give up and buy it again!

My problem is that every time I let the bread rise, I take the cling film off the top and the bread just collapses as if the air is being let out of a balloon!

If anybody would like to try and help me out on this issue I would be MOST grateful...
