Baking bread

This was the 3rd time I’ve tried to bake bread.  The first two times I made baguettes, but this time I wanted to make loaves and baguettes.  The baguettes were ok, I forgot to roll them so they turned out a little flat, and the loaves I put in tins to rise and they rose well until I put them into the oven and then they dropped. 😦  Anyone know what happened? 
 
Btw, the breads I am making have 1/2 wheat flour, 1/2 white flour, a little corn oil, a hint of sugar and some salt (and of course yeast).  Nothing complicated, yet. 🙂

    Sounds like there was a little too much water in the dough. That can make the bread drop during baking. You also might try letting them rise twice. Let the dough rise in a bowl, then punch down the dough. Seperate the dough into the bread tins and let rise again, then bake. Good luck!

    I did two rises and they rose wonderfully.  Maybe it was too much water, still.  I\’ll keep this in mind for next time.  Thanks!
