I looked at your recipe for white bread with reduced sugar. I have a panasonic breadmaker and normally make 50/50 brown bread. Could I use the same amounts of sugar and salt for that?

Hiya tt

I've not made a 50/50 loaf in ages..... but looking at my panasonic recipe for this loaf, it gives these quantities:-

1 tsp yeast
250g strong wholemeal flour
250g strong white flour
1� tbsp sugar
25g butter
1� tbsp milk powder
1� salt
360ml water

I would reduce the amount of sugar to only 1 tbsp (wholemeal flour is heavier than white flour, so it needs a bit more sugar get the yeast working harder to make the dough rise) and remove the milk powder (up to you of course !). I find that 360ml is far too much water - I'd probably only use 320ml but check the dough after about half an hour to see how wet or dry it is. The amount of salt seems ok.

Let us know how you get on !

thanks very much, be next week before I can make it, have no brown flour left ,but will let you know.
Ooops, I've just spotted that I didn't put in the measure for the salt - it should read 1� tsp salt... sorry.

I decided to test run this *amended* recipe (well, I needed to make a loaf of bread anyway, so why not a 50/50 one LOL). I'll let you know how it turns out in about 5 hours time !
hi jugglering (sorry to interrupt thread!!) just to let you know that the pizza dough was fabulous!! Thanks
I am so pleased it turned out good Chickadee ! I rarely manage to use the whole quantity in one meal, so I simply pop the unused dough in a (large) plastic bag and keep it in the fridge until the next evening... trouble is I then come home from work the next day to a very uppity dough which is try to take over the fridge (hence the reason for the large plastic bag, lol). All I need to do then is take it out of the fridge, let it come back up to room temperature and roll it out again. I then place it on a greased baking tray, leave it to rise a bit before adding my filling and baking it.
Back to the 50/50 loaf - I made this in my machine, on a 5 hour setting, using the amended recipe above. I have just tasted a slice (with a wee bit of butter) and it is gorgeous. The only thing is, I think it's a tiny bit too sweet, so may I recommend that you only use 2 tsp of sugar (ie 10 ml) rather than 1 tbsp (15 ml). Here are a few pictures for you !

Juggles, I give a way two bread machines because I was eating too much bread. After seeing your delicious looking homemade bread, it brought back so much bready memories I feel another bread machine will be sold this week. I'm weak for hot bread and butter!
