The most common cause of heavy bread machine bread is excessive salt. Check the flour mix you are usig and if it already contains salt, don't add any. Or reduce the amount of salt in your recipe. It could be too much or too little sugar, too much kills it, too little starves it.

Best of luck, I gave up on bread machines, I have much more success making it by hand. One of the other bread makers may have some more tips for you.

Bread machines are the devil. You might as well go down to hell and start cooking dinner parties for the Satan and his gang if you use a bread machine. But I guess that could just be my snobbery talking :)

bread machine

I use my bread machine every week and have had pretty good luck with it, especially since I got the book Bread Maching Magic. I have bought store bread only abt 2 or 3 times since I got it in the fall.

No such thing as easy bread making

I've had two different bread machines, one was a betty crocker and the other was a welbuilt. Both machines worked fine as for kneading and mixing, but if you want good I mean really tasty bread, don't leave it up to a machine. My dh bought me a Kitchen Aid mixer and I just use my dough hook for kneading and mixing, then I knead my bread just a little by hand and I always have great luck just doing it that way.

I don't use my bread machine that much but use the recipes. I use my Kitchen Aid mixer and mix the dough in there and bake in the oven the bread comes out great. I don't do any extra kneading to it when it is done. I do mix it for quite a while though. It always rises up real nice and tastes great. :o
