If you want really good bread you need to ditch the all purpose flour. It will always be more dense and short compared to bread flour. Be sure to buy a bag of flour that says "bread flour" on the bag.You will get a more normal looking and tasting bread.

While bread flour is most recommended for bread, creating a stronger dough that will rise higher, all-purpose flour is okay, as long as it is kneaded well enough. All-purpose flour has a better flavor than bread flour, and is indicated when a soft, cottony texture is the aim. Unbleached had a slightly higher gluten content than standard bleached flour.

Heavy sourdough

NO, it is not like English flour which is self-raising.
Yeast makes it rise. you could also add an egg with the liquid. Our flour needs raising agents.
BUt a sourdough loaf is a bit heavier.
Plus my breadmaker entails a sourdough starter, (with the recipe) That's if you are using a breadmaker.
Are you baking it in the oven?

Machine turns on, goes through programme but end result is unrisen loaf and bottom of loaf overdone while top still quite white.

Could your yeast be stale? It gets stale very quickly once opened. i tend to use sachets to avoid this.
Could the yeast be coming into contct with the liquids too soon. Keep yeast away from fats and liquids. Put it in first for most Panasonic machines, then the flour which keeps it dry till machine starts to knead.
You also must use strong bread flour not all purpose. good luck

The bread is not cooked in the center

If your loaf is also dense then you may not be getting the proper rise. Be sure you are using bread flour and not all purpose flour.

While baking the loaf falls. Why?

Unless you are making whole wheat bread be sure to use flour that says "bread flour" on the bag. NOT all purpose floure etc. only bread flour. My favorite is King Arthur brand of flour....

Collapsed bread

Try using more white flour with the whole wheat flour. Maybe increase the yeast and/or sugar.

Instead of more yeast, substitute 1 cup of white bread flour in place of the whole wheat flour. Whole wheat flour always makes a more dense loaf. Also, put a tent of aluminum foil over the loaf to radiate the heat back onto the top of the loaf to help brown it (as you would when baking a turkey).
