Don’t you have the experience that you feel too lazy to bite off the hard crust? I have been working on the method to have softer crust for few weeks. You may notice if you read my previous posts.
I always felt a waste when I saw my daughter and my husband left a chunk of whole crust. And I did the same thing because I don’t have strong teeth. lol
Anyway, I can confirm that this method only works with 70% hydration dough or less after baking over 20 loaves.
This method also works for me to maintain my weak oven. lol
- Bake at 280F for 10 minutes.
- Increase the temperature to 430F for 15 minutes.
- Decrease to 400 F and bake about 5 minutes or, until golden brown.
That is it.
Aghh… I better take a picture during using natural sun light..
I am happy with my current bread because everybody eats my entire bread now.
My next goal is to have perfect oven spring for the round bread!!!
