How to make bread soft?
Log in or register to post comments Printer-friendly version. 1. I suggest watching one or two good videos of the whole process. You might try John Kirkwood's Sandwich Bread at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWpSbYV96_c I think this is the kind of bread you are trying to achieve: a soft loaf, with some oil and sugar in the dough. I am suggesting Kirkwood because he's highly competent. Not all youtube tutorials are good. Watch his video for dough texture: what a well-kneaded dough looks like. This is hard to put into words, but becomes a lot clearer when you watch. Also note the fermentation times he allows, and what a well-risen dough looks like. (You might also try Kirkwood's proportions: you are perhaps using too much oil.)www.thefreshloaf.com
