Best Bread Machine Bread
November 15, 2003

I saw the comments about the loaf's tendancy to fall and would like to suggest adding about 1/2 tsp more salt into your machine when you bake the bread. Salt regulates yeast activity and strengthens dough structure. Too little salt can cause the dough to rise rapidly and then fall. I've seen that for 2 1/4 tsp (.25 oz) of bread machine yeast, the general salt amount is 1.5 tsp. I made this recipe with the extra salt and it turned out really well. It is the best loaf of white bread I've gotten from my machine so far -- and it rose really high (it had me slightly concerned it might over rise). But it was a beautiful loaf in the end.
