hi guys. HNY to you all. unless you're a baker of course, in which case you're about to go out of business.
i decided one day last week that i would make some bread. turns out its pretty piss easy to make, but quite hard to make right. so i need your tips and secrets. heres what i did:
500g of granary bread flour
30g yeast ("instant yeast")
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
mix all together. then leave for an hourish is warm place. then knead and put back in warm place for another hour. then cook in hot oven for 10 mins and then warm oven for about 30 mins.
the bread tasted lovely, but it was very flat and maybe the crust was a bit thick. how can i make it more...loafy? made another loaf which i left over night in the fridge before baking - came out even flatter.
can you make bread? cheers.
