Reply To: @oldles and Others. Bread making.
A couple of times we had a BRICK loaf, usually with dodgy yeast or wholemeal flour.
However, most of our loaves try to climb out of the pan! There is a flap which falls to deposit any fruit or other additives. It does not retract, and most loaves have a line on top where they rose up to it during final bake.
I have had a couple of times when the power went off, maybe just after the start of the bake cycle. I extracted the remains, into the Rayburn, and excellent loaf. Like many failures, it lead me to my personal design of bread maker. Now it I had the computing skills, the Micom would be replaced to give a MUCH BETTER loaf, which could use even less yeast than currently.
My notes are all there in my BREAD folder.
