I have been trying a few soft/fluffy white bread recipes for my bread maching and it seems to always turn them into a lumpy mess - it never gets the ingredients to a dough state so it never forms a loaf and barely rises at all. I dump out a lumpy inedible mess out of the bread pan at the end of the cycle.
Maybe someone here can tell me what I am doing wrong. For the most part I have been following the instructions very closely.
For instance here is one recipe:
Softest Ever Bread Machine Bread - 107868 - Recipezaar
The only substitution I made was using quick rising yeast for the bread machine yeast...
Previously I tried this one...
White Bread II - All Recipes
This one I subbed olive oil for veg oil and again quick rising yeast for active dry yeast...
Could the yeast be the issue?
I think the bread machine is ok since I was able to make 3 successful loaves previously. It seems to be the 'fluffly' recipes that it struggles with.
