  1. So I am watching your pod cast and hearing that you are having problems with your bread. I have been making bread for 30 years. So I hope I can help. One thing you need is moisture. This helps to keep things rising. Try putting a pan (cake pan) with water in it, into your oven when rising and baking. Next, how much yeast are you using? If it is about 2 Tbsp., cut it back to about 1 1/2 tbsp. see if that makes a difference. Temp is important, when adding yeast, I just make sure that it is a little more than comfortable to my finger. Also, how old is your yeast? If you keep it in the cupboard then it is most likely dead, meaning that it can rise about once, but after that, forget it. So, buy a new batch of yeast and keep it in the freezer in an air tight container. Only take out what you need at the time of baking. I hope this helps and feel free to contact me if you need more suggestions!! By the way, I so enjoy seeing your "Farm Happenings" God Bless! Debie
