Bread machine tips:

Our Test Kitchen home economists made more than 1,400 bread loaves and used more than 25 bread machine models to test recipes featured in Bread Machine Bounty. They offer these tips:

Measuring flour: Because you're not touching the dough by kneading, it's essential to measur e flour exactly. Use dry measures (the kind that stack inside each other-1 cup, 1/2 cup, etc.). Stir flour lightly in canister, then spoon into measuring cups.

Sourdough: The starter should be the consistency of buttermilk. If thicker, add water to thin it.

Whole grain breads: Whole wheat flour and rye flour have less gluten than bread flour and produce shorter loaves. If your machine has a whole grain setting or a rye setting, try using it for these breads to allow a longer rise and a higher loaf.

Yeast: Do not use quick-rise yeast
