Hi you all. I have a problem making sqaw bread in my cusinart bread machine. The loaves rise well and look great untill it is time to take them out. Then they sink in from the top. Have tried adding gluten but it did not help. Any suggaestions? Tx!
So Squaw Bread is a dark mixed wheat & rye bread. I have changed the original recipe over time and ended up with this. Hope you can handle the deciliters!
Water 2 dl
Milk 1/2 dl
Olive oil 2/3 dl
Unbleached wheat flour 3 1/2 dl
Rye flour 1 1/2 dl
Chocolate Jello powder 1 tb. sp.
Espresso Instant coffee 1 t. sp ( you can probably use any instant coffee)
Molasses 2 tb. sp.
Salt 1 t. sp.
Dry yeast 1 t. sp.
Baking powder 3 pinches
Sometimes I add 1-2 tb. sp. of Oat Bran or Crushed Rye for more fiber.
If you have a Cusinart bread machine, I use Menu 1, 1,5Lb loaf size and Medium crust settings.
Ooh that sounds interesting! I make a similar bread (this one) quite regularly, but I do it by hand rather than in a bread maker. I'm wondering if it's the inclusion of the baking powder that is causing it to sink in the middle, have you tried making it without that? Too much raising agent can cause too much rising, which cannot be supported by the structure of the dough as it's baking, and therefore it collapses.
