Why is my white bread flour producing pale brown crumb bread

December 10, 2012 - 11:09am -- louise davies

I'm following a recipe to produce a  loaf in a 1kg tin,

500g stong white flour

10g salt

10 g fresh yeast

350 g water

Bake at 220c for 30 minutes, with a tray of boiling water in the base of the oven for steam.

The loaf comes out a good size, with a lovely crust, but the inside is a pale brown colour - tastes great.
