Heeelp Me Fix My Bread
0

5 posts in this topic

:( I was making a white bread recipe from Betty Hagmans cookbook and I put the setting on wheatbread. Within 2 hours the bread rose above the top of my pan and was burning on the coils. So I grabed it and put it in the refrigerator. It is two days later and I'm starting to bake it again. Has my yeast run out and should I put new yeast in or is it gone to the dogs? I hope someone responds soon.

You probably need to start over. Don't worry, we have all had our moment with bread. Be sure that you are using the correct amount of dough for your size machine. If it is the usual upright kind of square loaf, you don't want more than about 2 1/2 cups of total dry ingredients and about 1 cup plus the eggs and oil of wet ingredients. There are some really good recipes out there if you continue to have poor luck.

I found Betty Hagman's bread's too runny and had the same problem with them over flowing the pan. I'd try more flour. Try using a ratio of two cups of water for 3 cups of flour. I don't know how this will work in a bread machine. When I make mine, I use two cups of flour and set the third cup aside. Then after the batter has risin, I add in the third cup of flour to stiffen the dough. Iv'e found that if I add all of the flour at once, the bread doesn't rise. It's heavy and icky.

good luck

PS I posted by bread recipe somewhere on this site in another topic where someone was asking about bread.

The thing to remember with Bette's bread recipes is very often they are for TWO 8 1/2 x 4 pans....not one pan, and not the 9x5 pan. I had the same problem until I read the instructions VERY carefully to see what I was doing wrong. Sigh. We've all been there and have our own "Bread Baking Battle Scars".

For some reason I just cannot get a good loaf of bread using a bread machine. I have to mix the ingredients with a heavy duty stand mixer then dump the dough in the pan and let it rise, just to the top of the pan, then bake. Never have a failure when I do it like that.

Yeast is short lived. I'd start all over again. Sorry.

    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      I would hope they would check for the other reasons for the endoscopy results.  A GI might not check for all of those so you may need to check with your regular doctor to start that process.

      The second link I gave you was to a series of online video courses, you can try those for free to see if its something you think might help. There are also a lot of worksheets you can download, the first link had some I think but there are plenty of others out there if you search online.  Finally I had another look and found this: http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/step1.htm  Which looks like a decent 7 step program Obviously its not as good as a dedicated session with a CBT counsellor, but the above may give you some tools you can use, especially when your thoughts are spiralling into a destructive circle. You could also search to see if there's any group sessions in Melbourne, that's how the NHS delivers it, they would be cheaper and there's really no need for one on one CBT, because it's more about delivering knowledge of the toolset. I approached it very sceptically but found it of some use, although at the time I was still under the gluten influence so it never tackled the root problem. The game changing aspect of discovering this is that you now know why the psychologist sessions didn't hit the mark, how could they when the root of your depression was your illness? My sessions now are far better and more enjoyable than when I was under a gluten fog.  Aside from all this the other advice holds, eat well, exercise, get sunlight every day and the longer you're on the diet the better you should get.  Oh and at least NI put up a hell of a fight in the Euros, hope you got to see that down under!
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Funny enough that a naturopath at a mind & body convention that I attended last week said I was also deficient in selenium. You put your finger into a small holder (Similar to having your heart rate checked) she said I'm deficient in b vitiams, selenium vitiam d, she also said Somthing about having a lot of mercury in my body, to be honest it all went over my head as yet another thing to deal with so I haven't looked much further into it as it was all just to much, I have a print out of the results that she gave me tho, I'm going to look into it. Thank you for taking your time to reply to this thread 
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for replying, I have not yet tried Cbt, I did meet with a psychologist for 2 months when I was really in the deepest depths of depression but it didn't really help, I couldn't concentrate at all during our sessions my anxiety and negative self talk was trough the roof at the time, and after loosing my job I could no longer afford the $150 sessions, I don't have medical insurance as I am currently waiting on my permanent residence visa to come tru ( originally from Northern Ireland) I might look into some Cbt sessions to see if they help, I'm willing to try anything

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
