I have an OSTER Breadmaker but if I wish a very light crust I simply turn the machine off 10-15 minutes early and leave the lid closed, which keeps the steam in and allows the crust to be softer. Then I have a new cold stick of margarine or butter, unwrapped part way, and slowly pass it over the top and sides of the new bread loaf. Sometimes due to weather changes or altitude we need to adjust our recipies, from those in our manuals. If your kitchen is 10-15 degrees warmer in the summer this can affect your machine. As with the amount of moisture in the air. My Gramma never made bread if it was rainy or a snow storm was brewing. The drop in air pressure made it uncertain if her bread would rise. Don't be afraid to fiddle with your recipe and adjust the amount of flour or kind of flour you use. Also have all ingredients at room temperature, for any recipe. Try various amounts of oil, water, an egg added, even if the recipe doesn't ask for one..! It is your bread and you get to eat it, it should be as you like it. The first adjustment is less time. Pull the plug early. Second would be the margarine. Third is play with the contents and adjust. Feed the birds the NOPES. Last reduce the amount of flour, but only by 3 tbsp at a time. This is the trick-y-est. Keep track on a paper and then re-write YOUR RECIPE on the inside front cover of your bread book.
6 heaped tablespoons whole meal
2 heaped tablespoons strong white
2/3 Teaspoons dark brown sugar
A healthy squeeze of tomato puree (adds ascorbic acid and makes the bead last longer)
Pinch of salt
about 3grams dried yeast
select "dough" (9 on mine)
When the program end bake in an oven at gas mark 5
I have never really been satisfied with a square loaf with the paddle hole in it. Also the bread ends up really heavy. I think this is because the bread sweats rather than bakes
The bread-maker is also easier to clean after just making dough, it produces better dough than i can by hand and the machine gets on with it while i can do something else!
