Question about Zojirushi BBCC-X20 Home Bakery Supreme Bread Maker
I have made three loaves on my new Zojirushi bread machine, and all three came out more dense than I would like. I have followed the directions perfectly, but I'd like to have lighter loaves—the kind I'm used to. Nanearl
(A personal aside - my personal experience with home-baked bread is that it tends to be a heavier product - - but that may be because the recipe gets experimented with, and whole grain flours tend to be used rather than bakers flour.)
It sounds like something is stopping the yeast from acting (fermentation creates to CO2 bubbles that cause the bread to rise). Was the yeast you used all from the same batch? (sometimes they have bad days at the yeast factory, too). Can you watch when it runs through the cycle, and check for conditions _before_ the dough is supposed to rise? If it heats up much too quickly/soon, the heat can kill the yeast before it get to do it's job.
You might be able to get more product-specific assistance from Zojirushi.
