So, I have a bread machine. Okay, it came with 2 mixes, both of which came out puffy and light and delightful, but the idea is to make my own and just make it slave for me, correct?
I CAN NOT, repeat, CAN NOT produce a loaf of bread that is higher than 6 inches tall. I have used warm liquid, room temp liquid, cold liquid, measured exactly, never add too much sugar, always enough salt, bought fresh yeast. What in the sam hell am I doing wrong that my bread never makes it to the top of the bucket like the boxed mixes?
They taste great, but they are obviously dense and damnit, not tall. I want to produce some yeasty goodness instead of yeasty flatness. HELP!!!!
