whole grain bread does not rise
I've been recently experimenting with homemade whole grain bread. It's quite tasty but it does not rise very well and also does not bake well (I'm using a Kenwood machine, http://www.amazon.com/Kenwood-BM256-220-...%3AKenwood)
I'm using one of the standard recipes of the machine:
- 300g whole grain flour
- 300g white flour
- 1/2 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon dry yeast
- 380 ml water
Initially I dissolve sugar, salt and yeast in warm water and select program 3 (for whole grain bread).
Any suggestion of how to improve the result?
