Bread making difficulties...


I've  just joined this forum and I'm new to bread making. I have a Morphy Richards 48280 bread maker, which I have only been successful with when baking with a ready mixture! Today I made my first bread following a recipe, but the bread came out a bit heavy and too much yeast taste.  This is the recipe I used, can anyone tell me what's wrong with that, please.

200g Allinson wholemeal very strong bread flour

300 Allinson country grain bread flour

1 sachet (7g) easy bake yeast

2 tsp sugar

1.5 tsp salt

2 tbsp skimmed milk

2 tbsp oil

1 crushed vitamin C tablet

325 ml water.

I appreciate any help and advice. Also would like a recipe for spelt bread for a bread maker, please.

Thank you!

I would cut the vitamin c to 1/4 tsp and add a dash of ginger to your flour mix.
