 ow> Hello, fellow bread bakers--
 ow> I'm having a problem with bread in my machine.  It rises beautifully,
 ow> but when it begins to bake, it "falls", leaving the top  wrinkled.  The

 ow> something.  Any suggestions?

Too much liquid. Cut back on the amount of liquid you add to the dry

Remember, the amount of liquid needed varies because no two batches of
flour have the same moisture content.
