Zojirushi :bread/cake is short and heavy,what am i doing wrong?
i followed the exact recipes/instructions in the book that comes with the Zojirushi Virtuoso for both cake and bread and the result is always the same.
it comes out always short and heavy inside (the crust is good and crispy).
things i tried to get a different result:
- increase the yeast (i use instant yeast).
- sprinkle 1/4 of the yeast all over . instead of putting all of it in the middle in a small depressing.
- use different flour.
- make cake (no yeast in recipe, only baking powder).
- use olive oil instead of butter.
but i got the same result all the time.
ps. in all recipes i add sesame and black cumin when the add beeps sound.
the attached images are from the french bread recipe :(
