Meaning of "creamy" wrt crumb

October 24, 2009 - 12:45pm -- ericjs

I've often read the term"creamy"used, talking about the quality of a good crumb in certain breads. This word has never really made a lot of sense to me, but I assume it's a metaphorical descriptive, like when people talk about wine having "structure". I'm wondering if some one can take a shot defining the qualities of "creamy" crumb in more literal, physically descriptive terms.
