Dough not smooth/did not double
I have made several attempts to make yeast breads. Evey time I have made the dough, my dough does not come out smooth and silky. It is always a rough, lumpy and layered in appearence as if the dough is being torn.
Also in my latest attempt, the dough did rise but did not double. I was using Active Dry Yeast (not rapid rise) according to the directions and let it rise for two hours.
I'm not sure if location is a factor. I live in Florida.
