I often would like to prepare a mix of my own so when in a hurry I can
have everything ready to make bread in my brdadmaker. I have bought the
mixes (prepackaged in different varieties ) and have wondered how they
avoid using liquids or oils. Usually the package instruction just say
add water (1 cup). How do they substitute for oils, butter etc?
A quick second question. Since I have gotten my breadmachine in January
I have make a different loaf everyday. I cannot make any of the breads
with raisins---loaf too small. I have tried 3 boxed mixes and three
recipes from scratch following the cookbooks to the letter. How can I
get a decent sized loaf. I have a 2 lb Toastmaster #1195 and have had
no problems other than raisins. I have added them at the cycle bell and
even tried at the beginning.
