Topic: Heavy Dense Bread
I have now attempted to make the simple white loaf twice. The first I made, I used strong white flour, it was OK but crumbled. The second I made I followed the recipe exactly and used Allisons Premium White flour.
When I added the 300 ml warm water (as per recipe) the mixed seemed extremely dry so I added a little more, about a tablespoon. The dough was not very soft and hard work to knead. It rose well and after baking, turned out heavy and very dense.
I have not made bread for a very long time and remember making bread at school, with fresh yeast and the dough being very soft but not sticky. Help!!!
