autolyse for bread machine
I have been trying an autolyse for my bread machine. (I am trying to find an everyday sandwich bread.) I grind my own wheat and for the moment, I still like the convenience of the bread machine because I can't seem to make it well by hand yet. The texture of the bread seems to be doing better but it still is crumbly when you cut in the middle and falls apart for sandwiches. I have tried following JMonkey's recipe and procedure for whole wheat sandwich bread and put it in the bread machine for kneading and then baked in oven and also, baked in the bread machine. Is there a way to make it less crumbly? What ingredient or technique could improve the texture (besides doing it all by hand)?
