  • Thanks Lisa.
  •  
  • I will try that this evening.
  • I always lower the salt so maybe that is where I could be going wrong.
  •  
  • Will let you know....!

  • It probably is the salt then Emma. Apparently you need it to stop the yeast going too mad! If you don't add enough, the bread rises too much and then collapses, as it's full of air.

  • Hi Emma
  •  
  • If you want to reduce the sodium in the bread use Lo-salt  I always use this in my bread recipies and it works just fine.

  • Fantastic news Emma,  if you are anything like me you wont go back to shop bought bread again except in emergencies.  It works out so much cheaper as well.  I am just about to put some Raison Bread on now, thanks for reminding me.

  • I'm so glad I looked on this thread as I've just taken a loaf out of my breadmaker and it ws all lumped together, it's the first time in ages I've made bread which always turned out ok before, so I wondered whether the yeast was old. But I've just gone back to look at the recipe and realised I missed out the salt altogether. If I'd not looked here I never would have realised and might have thrown away the yeast. I never knew that about the salt.
  •  
  • Well done Emma, as Marie says it's cheaper, plus it tastes much nicer, and you can put what you like in.

  • A tip when making wholewheat breads, instead of using the vitamin c tablets as mentioned in the recipe book use a little bit of lemon juice instead, It works far better and is easier to use
