Try using more white flour with the whole wheat flour. Maybe increase the yeast and/or sugar.

How do I make a loaf of gluten-free bread moister and lighter in texture


Look for gluten free recipes that incorporate guar gum and / or xanthan gum (which you can get at health food stores: inexpensive and they go a long way.) Once you get an idea of quantities, you can experiment with adding them to your own favourite gluten-free recipes. These natural ingredients are what many commercial gluten-free bread makers use.

I have an 'All-In-One B1561 breadmaker which is producing small and hard loaves. Any recipe with a whole wheat flour is unedible, being so small, compact and hard. Is the breadmaker (about 8yrs old)...


If you use whole wheat flour without any bread flour (bread flour is marked on the bag) you will have small dense loaves unless you add wheat gluten. The product "vital wheat gluten" is for sale in most grocery stores in the baking aisle. If you don't want to add gluten then you will need to use at least 50% bread flour and 50% whole wheat flour to get a larger loaf. Those are the 2 choices to make large loaves using a lot of whole wheat flour.

I received my breadmaker Christmas 2009. I have always used the basic setting but decided to make wheat bread. The recipe calls for a different setting. After I plugged it in, nothing happened; for...


Yes, many machines warm up a little when you choose the wheat setting, also if your manual shows the cycle times for the various programs you will probably notice a different Knead time (more) vs. the basic program and that is because whole wheat flour lacks enough gluten to make a nice, large, soft loaf, so to compensate it has a longer knead. Even with that though your whole wheat loaves are probably going to be shorter than a 100 whole wheat loaf.
Many bakers ( me included) add purchased wheat gluten and add that to the flour, (be sure to remove and equal amount of w. wheat flour from the recipe if you do this) to get a softer, higher, better texture loaf.

Need recipe for 1 lb whole wheat loaf


I have a very healthy recipe. Makes two loaves so you will have to divide in two.

13 oz. water (warm)
3 3/4 cup stone ground whole wheat flour
1/2 cup steel cut oats
2 T oil
2 T dry milk
2 T vital wheat gluten
3 T honey
1 1/2 t salt
1 T active dry yeast

When machine beeps add if desired:

1/2 cup golden flax seeds
1/4 cup unroasted sunflour seeds or sesame seeds (or both)

Put into machine and go. I usually set it on dough cycle and put into pans for second rise 50min in a warm, draft free area. Preheat oven to 400 place bread in oven after second rise, reduce heat to 375 and bake 30-35 min.

You can find both flour and gluten with Bob's Redmill products

enjoy,

Dense bread


Try a different recipe--highly recommend The Bread Machine Cookbook by Melissa Clark it may be out of print, but can order from Amazon for less than $3.00. Also, if your bread is too dense, you can try adding a little wheat gluten flour, found in the baking section at most large grocery stores, including Walmart. However, a little of this goes a long way! I never need to add to my white bread, but it is wonderful for whole grain breads as it greatly improves the texture. Wheat gluten is made from the inside of the wheat kernel and is very high in protein, also helps your bread rise, so try starting with one teaspoon for your white bread and use up to one fourth of a cup with whole grain breads. A little of this stuff goes a long way!!!! Do read the introduction in the little paperback cookbook I recommended, it really helped me to understand the hows and whys of breadbaking, and I had to throw away many a loaf, before I read this section of the cookbook.

Heavy dry wheat bread


You can try replacing some of the heavier wheat flour with some lighter sifted bread flour. (You'll need to sift the wheat flour too.) I use Splenda when I can to try to keep the calories and carbs down, but a small amount of molassas can help sweeten too. Try experimenting with different amounts until you get one you like. You might try using fruit juice for liquid; it can sweeten while mixing in the flours. Good Luck and have fun eating your experiments.

Collapsed bread


Likely, your loaf is too wet.
This can happen with as little as 1 Tablespoon too much liquid. It's hard to describe "the look," but what I learned to do was to watch the bread during the initial mixing cycle (after the paddle begins to turn full circles). The dough should not stick to the side of the pan while mixing, and it should look elastic, but not shiny. If it looks shiny, there's too much liquid in relationship to flour. I add a tablespoon of flour at a time during the mixing cycle, until I get a good consistency.
There's nothing wrong with the taste of the sunken loaves. We usually just shrug and eat them anyway.

Instead of more yeast, substitute 1 cup of white bread flour in place of the whole wheat flour. Whole wheat flour always makes a more dense loaf. Also, put a tent of aluminum foil over the loaf to radiate the heat back onto the top of the loaf to help brown it (as you would when baking a turkey).
