Trouble with the bread...HELP!
I am looking for help for my 76 year old father who has been baking great bread and rolls for 40 years but all of a sudden is having a consistent problem with his bread....the center turns "sticky" and mushy after a few days and we are not sure what is happening? My dad is so frustrated that he is ready to quite baking so I am seeking the collective wisdom of this group for possible solutions for him.
Here are the particulars:
My dad makes two good sized loves at a time. He does not use any recipe anymore as he is so familiar with the process and sort of likes to "create" every time he bakes. I am not real sure about the temp and duration of his phases when he bakes but he never had this problem for 35 years and now in the last 10 or so its a recurring problem. He has reduced the size of the loaves and baked them longer to no avail. Thanks gang for your consideration.
