Don't change a single ingredient in the recipe, also measure, measure, 
measure EXACTLY!!!  Just be sure you use fresh ingredients, and especially 
fresh yeast. You are using bread flour, right? And putting ingredients in 
the order given in the directions?  Try a  plain white recipe and see if it 
is any better too.
