Why does flour need more water when I make bread here?

November 14, 2010 - 5:18pm -- gringogigante

I live in Allen, TX ( a suburb north of Dallas) and have noticed that everytime I make a recipe (and I mean every single time), I need to add 1/4 to1/2 cup or more of water over what is given in the recipe.

Why is that?

I am new to baking and this forum (my first entry!), so be gentle amigos!  :-)

Thanks in advance.
