    Can anyone tell me? I have a bread machine that does a two pound loaf.I find i always get a heavy loaf not light anf fluffy.I follow the instructions exactly. If there is a cure to this that anyone knows of I would love to hear it. Maybe it is always like that,everything tastes good just that it is heavy.

    Thanks

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm, I use a bread machine 2 or 3 times a week and it does not come out heavy. Are you placing the yeast on the flour and not letting it get wet before mixing? Are you using a mix or homemade?
    I have a very light loaf of cinnamon raisin with icing just waiting for morning coffee!!

    Hi TxsChef:
    Here is an example of zucchini bread that is very tasty but very heavy.

    Zucchini Bread

    3/4 cups of water
    1/4 cup of grated zucchini
    3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
    1 tbsp of honey
    1tsp of sea salt
    1/4 cup of wheat germ
    1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
    1 1/2 cups of bread flour
    1 tbsp gluten flour
    2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

    Everything is put in machine in order listed. Do you see a problem.I would love to try your recipe if you would share it. Have a great day.

    Looks perfect to me! Is your wheat flour high protein? That’s the only difference in the recipe I use! Now I’m hungry for some more bread!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
