Healthy Bread in 5 Min - Chewy?
I just purchased the book by Jeff and Zoe and love the ease in which to make bread. I would highly recommend it for those that don't have a lot of time for baking or that just need a quick way to make bread, definitely a book with great explanantions and healthy information.
There are two things though with the Master Recipe:
(1) With the omission of honey and oil, it seems to lack the flavor of PR's Whole Grain book. But again, PR's bread can be somewhat time consuming and with the ease of "5 minutes" it is extremely inviting to bake more often so I understand the trade off.
(2) My bread is turning out very chewy. The holes in the 3 day old ferment are nice and the oven spring is good. I have also measured the temp to make sure oven is accurate but I am still getting very chewy bread.
It's probably something I'm doing; I just don't know what. Thanks for your suggestions.
