Why do some loaves from same batch rise higher than others?
So, I do batches of bread. Last week I made 4 loaves of King Arthur's Honey Oatmeal wheat bread. I used 100% white whole wheat. Two of the loaves I kept plain, and two I rolled out to make it a cinnamon swirl bread (I do a slight variation from traditional with making it a twisted dough). I weigh all four pieces to make equal size loaves and I start with the plain loaves so they have more time to rise as this happens EVERY time I do this. Then I roll out the cinnamon swirl bread pretty thin, sprinkle with a powdered sugar/cinnamon mix, roll it up, and then twist it to get it to fit in the pan.
When I put them in the pans, the are all approximately the same height, but ALWAYS the cinnamon bread grows taller and faster. I end up with a sandwich loaf that is 4 inches tall and a cinnamon bread that's 5" tall or more. Why is that? More manipulation? I do slightly roll out the plain bread and then roll it up and tuck under the ends, so I don't get it!
Help! I want a taller sandwich loaf! (And less dense).
