Just divide by 3, then mutiply by 2.

Example, yeast 2 ts, divide by 3 = 2/3ts X2 = 1 1/3ts ( I would round off to 1 1/2ts.

Let me know how it works out.
I saw a bread machine book in the store and when comparing the 2 sizes, it looked like it did the same thing I did.
Good luck,
Ed

Hi Ed, I tried the recipe last weekend, and the loaf turned out extremely small! The texture was dense, but it tasted OK. It only rose to about half the size I expected. I do not know if my measurements were correct, as I stated in my original message about my lack of math skills (especially fractions it seems blink.gif ). I DO know how important correct measurements are especially in baking, so I must assume that I did not have the correct amount of yeast in there (if not one of the other ingredients as well). I think I only used one teaspoon of the yeast. I do have to laugh at myself, because Im not a total dummy, just horrible at math.... I will try this again (with any suggestions given by this board), because I DO want to have bread again on occasion! Thanks again for your help Ed, I will let you know how the next loaf turns out.

a packet of yeast is 3 teaspoons. a full loaf of bread would use one packet. mine makes 1 1/2 pound loaf. if yours makes a one pound loaf I would use two teaspoons and add a dab of honey to make it rise. Yeast needs sugar to rise properly. Hope that helps. dona

Dona,
You are right, but she can use 1 tsp of honey as it is eaten by the yeast and doesnt affect the finished loaf.

Teri,
Another thing I forgot, you could add "vital wheat gluten" as this will help the SGWWF rise. Btw, does your machine have a whole wheat cycle? That would help too, because it allows more time to rise and maybe an extra rising cycle. But not sure about the extra risiung cycle thing.

Good luck,
Ed

Dona and Ed,
Thank you so much for the tips! I now understand why my loaf was so small, I only used about half the yeast needed. And Ed, yes, my machine has the whole wheat cycle, and I did use it. I kinda figured the same as you. I also saw the wheat gluten and honey in another recipe, so I think I will give those suggestions a try after I go grocery shopping again. I really want to make this work, as wheat bread is about the only common food that my husband and I can share. He has Crohns disease and can only tolerate highly processed foods. Not only is this a cooks nightmare, but I am constantly having to look at "illegal" foods in my cupboard. I actually started cheating by eating a twinkie here and there-----YUK. I never ate or liked twinkies before, but they were available when I was weak. Anyhow... I will let you know how my next effort on the bread goes. Take care. Teri
