frustration and the bread machine!
So several weeks ago i made the decision to lead ny family down the path of healthier food and lifestyle. Its been brilliant! Every thing portioned, cooked from scratch and free of msg, additives , preservatives and sixty letter ingredients thst require google to decipher.
Everything except making bread. Ive mastered yeast rolls, cinnamon bread and crescants galore but i cannot for the life of me get a loaf of usable bread from the bread maker. Using the recipes that came from the book and bread flour, cannot cut it. Wheat, same issue.
Out of desperation i tried ap flour with 4 tablespoons vital gluten ( should have been teaspoons-- my bad). I wait several hours- sometimes the next morning to cut it and the result is the same :(
I have a oster 2 lb express bake, i use king arthur wheat and bread flour, orgabic AP flour and reds mill vital wheat gluten.
I also live a altitude between 5500 and 6000ft.
Please help! We are a large family and i really need to make this bread machiine produce usable loaves!
