However, when I wanted to make rye bread today, the only recipe that the booklet didn't have, was that one. I googled a rye bread recipe it from the Panasonic website, and it turned out to be a flop. The top had caved in and it was all doughy on the inside.
The top has caved in.
The bread also had a lot of flour around the sides.
Some flour remains around the bread.
The problem (a) seems to be too much water and (b) not enough water. So, that leaves me just as confused as when I started trouble shooting the problem.
