Hi, I’m a newbie so nice to meet you.
I bought a bread maker recently and eventually found a great recipe that made the perfect loaf several times. However, the last three loaves - same ingredients, same settings - have been different: the loaf rose too much and hit the lid ruining the shape and although each loaf tasted fine thy were too light, difficult to slice because it was too floppy, even three days old!
I can’t work out what has changed. I began using up an old pack of yeast sachets (still in date) and had no problems. A new pack of the same yeast coincided with these odd loaves - could that be the problem? If so, what’s the solution?
Any ideas gratefully received. Thank you.
