Help me get fluffy
Alright, I'm as much of a newbie as one can be. Only baked a few breads so far, and only for a week or two, but I'm getting the hang of it - at least according to my wife, who just had the best buns of her life.
So far I've baked a few interesting things:
- Regular bread (flour, water, yeast and salt) + sugar and walnuts
- Regular bread with honey instead of sugar
- And a regular one with rosemary and I replaced half the water with red wine. (Interesting and good)
Well, my main issue is, I need to get my breads lighter and fluffier, they seem a little heavy to me, not enough airholes. Which is something I can get help with acquiring.
So far I've used this exact recipe as a base:
- 400g flour
- 25g active yeast
- 250ml water
- 10g sugar
- 10g salt
I've let the dough rise for 6 hours, then I've kneaded back down, shaped the breads and let them rise for another 3 hours.
I simply don't know how to get them light, fluffy and perfect. Tell me what I'm doing wrong.
