Not enough rise

For some reason the bread I try to make in a break maker is not rising
enough. Actually, I made maybe twenty test breads and only one time did it
rise enough. I don't recall doing anything different that time.
Is there a way to tell whether the yeast is too old, temperature is
incorrect, or other reason by examining the bread?
The bread is simple:
1 cup bread flour
2 tbsp yeast
5 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt
1 egg
some butter
just enough water to make a dough ball (less than 1/4 cup)

I would guess that the yeast is too old James. I would run to the store and pick up some new yeast to see if that does the trick.

Fleischman's never worked well for me. Now I buy what ever bulk yeast they have in the health section of the market or in those little see-through plastic containers.

Where did the recipe originate? I've never seen a bread recipe with a single cup of flour!
