    Altered ingredient amounts. did not use caraway. Had nice light texture, good flavour and nice crust. Served it with corned beef and was a hit. Will be making it again.  -  14 Jul 2008


    Loved this recipe but would like to ask a question, I follow a wheatfree diet so been trying to breadmaker bake some tasty breads. This worked surprisingly well when I substifuted bread flour for the Doves farm wheat free plain white flour blend, but I had one issue the height of the loaf is about an 1.5" so not the true height of a normal loaf. Does anyone know why this happens? I've tried some of the tips, using sparkling water, effervescent vitamin C to no avail. I do use the yeast in the recipe. Maybe I should use twice the amount? But then I'm unsure on the amount of water as I'm not sure if it's a case of double all ingredients. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for a fabulous recipe, the first tasty wheat free homebaked loaf I've managed in 9 months!  -  07 Jan 2012
