I go in and out of making all our bread. I used to make most of it by hand. I tire of that. So, lately I have been making it in the bread machine. here is my recipe and I would LOVE to know WHY this bread is rising SO nicely adn then falling within just a minute or two of the cook cycle starting. PLUS, it takes wonderful hot, but let it cool down adn it gets crumbly, which is super messy and annoying.
1 cup water
2 Tb of oil
3 and 1/4 cup flour ( half bread flour, half ww)
1/4 cup brown sugar OR 2 Tb honey
1 tsp salt
3 tsp yeast
I know this is actually a roll recepi, but I used to use this exclusively to make my bread by hand. i used it for loaves, buns, rolls, pizza dough, etc etc.....why is it falling and crumbly??
