I just want soft white bread...and keep failing....and trying! Going CRAZY!
My goals: create a soft white bread, similar to the fake wonderbread stuff (I'm a mom first, it's what the family wants! no bashing please!), using a 13" pullman pan without the lid, and using the dough cycle on a bread machine.
I've gone thru a 50# bag of flour and STILL have yet to perfect my goals (did use some for hamburger buns/sweet rolls). Time to ask for help. My family is sick of the experiments.
finish product often has wrinkled tops and/or collapses.
Recipe: 1/2 cup buttermilk; 1 cup water; 1 Tbsp instant yeast; 1 tsp. sugar
1.5 Tbsp homemade enhancer; 3-2/3 c bread flour; 1/2 c potato flour; 1/4 c dry milk; 6 tbsp soft butter; 2 Tbsp honey; 2 tsp. salt.
or by weight:
120 ml buttermilk; 240 ml water; 10 gr instant yeast; 4 gr sugar.
16 homemade enhancer; 525 gr bread flour; 60 gr potato flour; 16 gr dry low fat milk; 85 gr butter, softened; 40 gr honey; 13 gr salt
I've tried baking at different temps, lowering temps after 20 min., tenting with foil halfway, etc. tried using an instant read thermometer and a leave-in thermometer to 190-200.
