Thanks! No, I don't use a bread slicer, just a serrated bread knife. I wrote a post about slicing bread, here. I just sliced another loaf earlier today, and again it turned out great. I just love this recipe!

A digital thermometer should help too. Just jab the loaf while it's in the oven, 180 for what you're making, 200 for sweet breads with eggs.

Urgent Help *UPDATED IN POST 13* with Wheat Bread?

Hi Everyone! It's me again. I tried the recipe that Minniebees posted, with all whole wheat flour. I think I messed up by adding too hot liquid to the flour mixture including yeast. The liquid (butter/honey/milk) got up to about 147, but it cooled to about 138 before I poured it into the flour/yeast. It is not rising.

Anyone think I can just try kneading in some new yeast and water?? I actually did this not too long about with a white bread, and it worked, but there is some major gluten lacking in this bread at this moment . . .

Help?

I would definitely give it a try! I would activate it first in a little warm water & maybe a teaspoon of sugar. You want those babies nice & awake! Yeast die at 130, so I bet that's what happened.

Thanks for your quick reply! I just tried it, with a little sugar too like you suggested. It is now 7:50 pm here, and my dough is on its first rise, if I'm lucky! Haha. Live and learn, right?!

I always proof my yeast, even if it's instant. If it doesn't get bubbly, the bread won't rise, it's a quick easy way to make sure things are working.
