Shaping a Sandwich Loaf
I have almost made a great sour dough using white wheat berries etc etc... I was so happy with the bread, but today my daughter came home with a cheap loaf of white bread from the grocery store. Her complaint is the bread I make is not the right shape and tastes too strong. :(
So I have been trying to figure out how to make a plain old white loaf with a good shape. I figure I can use the white bread flour from the store, but I haven't figured out how to make a good shape. I have a couple bread pans but they make a small loaf. So what is the trick for shape? Maybe I need to find a bigger bread pan?
Also I have a large oven and have a stone on the entire bottom rack. My bread comes out great using he stone, not sure how of if I would use the stone when trying to make plain old sandwich bread?
