CRACKED WHEAT BREAD
I have just finished my second try at cracked wheat bread, both with the same results............fell flat on top while baking. Dissapointment to say the very least.
I am determined to conquer this quest for a nice light cracked wheat bread!
Would anyone have a tried and true recipe. I am using a Bosch Universal Plus if that makes any difference.
The recipe I tried called for 1 cup of milk, 2 1/2 c each of whole wheat and AP flours. Also, 1/4 cup of cracked wheat and 1 1/4 c of boiling water which cooks for 10 minutes then cools. I also used gluten and enhancer and 1 tbsp yeast, 2 tbsp each of honey and molasses and 1 tbsp salt.
I couldn't use the total amount of flour called for or the dough would have been as hard as rock. I used all the w/w and only about 1 1/2 cups AP.
The first rise was great and the second looked good also but then fell on top. To say my frustration level is fast rising would be an understatement.
