Anybody had success making bread in the pressure cooker? I have followed Annie Hill's method (Voyaging on a Low income) and had 5 disasters! Bread rises OK but always collapses when cooking. I can usually manage a good loaf when cooking conventionally but never in the pressure cooker.
What am I doing wrong?

Annies instructions said to cook at full 15lbs pressure and it does not matter whether you reduce pressure suddenly or not. I tried both! I should have added that I am doing this at home before trying on the boats Taylors 'blast furnace'.

I've successfully used her method. Pan inside the pressure cooker needs plenty of room for expansion of bread and should be on a trivet. I covered the bread pan with a double layer of greaseproof paper, which went above the rim of the inner pan by an inch or so and tied it firmly round with string. worked every time
