Re: bread maker help....

I am having the exact same problem. I just got a new bread maker for Christmas, and I cannot for the life of me get the bread to rise properly. I even bought brand new yeast. I hope someone offers some solutions.

Re: bread maker help....

This is likely too simple of a solution, but when I couldn't get my loaves to 'finish' rising, I just put in an extra 1/4cup of water (ish). A bit more water made a big difference.
