Bread too high

I have baked 4 loaves "Family Favorite White Sandwich Loaf" and each loaf is too high. The first loaf pushed the lid up, so I reduced the yeast by 1/4 tsp. The second loaf pushed the lid up, although it was less, and I chose the middle sized loaf. The next loaf I chose the small loaf size with 1 tsp of yeast and it touche the top and I had to cut it off once cooked. This fourth loaf I reduced the yeast to 3/4 tsp and left it at it's preset setting (middle sized loaf) and it again rose so high that the dough completely covered the window. I am getting frustrated. What else can I do to reduce the size of my loaf? Should I cut the yeast down to a 1/2 tsp?

The one thing that rises bread is yeast. You have some super duper yeast if the breadmaker suggests a certain amount and you keep getting the same results. You can either reduce the rise time -- or the amount of yeast -- or both.

It may not be the yeast but the temperature of the water. When making bread the water has to be added at the percise temp to react to the yeast properly. The yeast pkg tells you the right temp. I always use a thermometor...Give that a try!! Good Luck!

Bread kneader gets stuck in loaf


That is going to happen often with breadmachines, especially when making breads with thick crust. The only way to avoid it 100% of the time is to make dough with your machine and then do the final rising and baking in the oven. There is one other thing you can do to avoid the dreaded" paddle injury" to your loaves and still bake in your machine. Visit me at breadmachineshelp.com and I'll reveal my little trick!

I need a recipe for White Bread


Hi greatdane,

Plz find below the recipe for White Bread:

Ingredients:
  • 6 to 7 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 2 packages quick acting or active dry yeast
  • 2 1/4 cups scalded milk cooled to about 120°
Preparation: Mix 3 1/2 cups of flour with sugar, salt, shortening and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Add very warm milk; beat for about 1 minute. Stir in enough of the remaining flour, a cup or so at a time, until dough is easy to handle. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead, adding more flour as necessary to keep it from sticking, until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Place dough in a large buttered mixing bowl. Turn dough over so greased side is up. Cover with a clean dish towel and let rise in a warm place, out of drafts, for about 1 hour, or until doubled. When dough is touched, an indentation will remain. Punch dough down and divide into two equal portions. Flatten each half with hands or rolling pins into a rectangle about 18x10 inches. Starting at 10-inch edge, roll dough tightly; pinch long seam together. With sides of hands, press each end of loaf; fold ends under loaf. Place loaves, seam side down, in loaf pans (approximately 9 x 5 x 3-inch). Brush each loaf lightly with butter. Cover loosely with clean dish towels and let rise until double, about 35 to 50 minutes. Preheat oven to 425°. Bake loaves on a low rack, so tops of pans are at the center of the oven. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Bread will sound hollow when lightly tapped. Makes 2 loaves of white bread.

Just baked a loaf of bread an now no power?


That is a temperature warning that is an automatic feature on bread machines. What the machine is telling you is that the oven chamber is still too hot from baking the last loaf. It does that to prevent you from starting another loaf and having that loaf fail due to the high heat killing the yeast. If you want to bake more than one loaf push the STOP button till it beeps, unplug the machine, raise the lid, and leave it open for no less than 20 minutes. It should work fine by then if not let cool off another 10 minutes. It will be cool enough by ½ an hour to start another one.

Every time I bake a wholemeal loaf, it bakes well enough, but it tapers off to one end. This problem does not seem to occur with white bread, which rises evenly throughout the length of the loaf.


Fast Action Easy Bake yeast is supposed to help with improving the volume of a loaf, but you can add 1/4 tsp of Vitamin C powder (ascorbic acid) to whole wheat loafs to improve the rise. Sometimes mixing the flours helps as a small amount of white (30%) can make the loaf less dense. Make sure you use the best quality flour you can afford - the cheap ones don't always make such a good loaf.

My wholemeal loaves rise too high and stick to the roof of the lid. i sm using white and whole meal flour and the water seems to be the correct heat. please can you tell me why this is as any other loaf i...


I don't have this model breadmaker, but if your loafs are raising too high, you should either reduce the amount of sugar or the amount of yeast you put in. The yeast makes the gas that makes the bread rise. If the culture has less food (less sugar) or if the culture is smaller it start with (less yeast) than you'll get smaller loafs. Try decreasing your sugar by a tablespoon or cutting the yeast by 1/2 teaspoon. You might need to try several reductions. If you're using another source of sugar, like molasses, just cut it by the same tablespoon amount.
