I have always made bread using bread maker. Now I am branching out into making my own but because of health issues it has to be a wholemeal loaf. The ones I have made up until now have been "OK" but I would like one which is not as dense as they appear to be. I have experimented using half white and half wholemeal flour which does make a difference but still not completely satisfied. Does anybody out there have a foolproof recipe that I could try please? Also I am using quick yeast, so not sure whether I should be using fresh.
