Oh wait, I didn't mean that like it came out. Er... what I mean to say is, I finally made a batch of wheat bread in which nothing went wrong. The products of my bread-making have been edible for some time, but not always pretty: among other difficulties, I always had trouble getting the loaves out of the pan in one piece. But now I've done it! Not content to use the scientific process to identify just what was going wrong I made a large number of adjustments to the procedure, so I can't say for sure if there was one particular change that made the difference. Sorry, other folks with the same problem, I'm afraid I can't help you. But there must be a baking blog out there somewhere whose author can offer some advice... mustn't there?
