I’m trying to use a bread machine to make bread.  I just don’t have the time to do it the old school way.  However I am using a variation on the basic white recipe and it just isn’t working right.

1.5 c hot water
2 tsp yeast
2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
(here’s where it changes)
2 c white flour
2 c wheat four
(recipe calls for 4 c white)

The problem I’m getting is that the bread doesn’t raise correctly.  I get a 2lb loaf of very dense bread.  It is an upright machine and I don’t know if that has any bearing on it, but I’m looking for some advice or anything I can try to get the bread to be lighter. I realize that I changed the recipe and there are things at play in the mix that I really don’t know about. 

Any advice is really appreciated.

Thanks.

Ok.  I’ll try the water first.  I’ll see about the gluten next shopping trip.

The density started with the first loaf for the yeast. 

Thanks for the info.
