Thank you to The Fresh Loaf, from a newbie!
I started to bake and cook more intensively (happily!) a year and a half ago when I moved to the UK with my husband. I didn't bake bread often though, as my experience with it, just the basic white loaf, has not been encouraging - very inconsistent results, hard crust, dense and chewy ... Sigh ... Until l chanced upon a video through this site and with the slap and fold method I managed to bake a little loaf that had a beautiful crust!!! Well good enough for a newbie like me! I really learnt a lot from this site and do hope I am able to apply what I read from what everybody has written :
I now hope to improve on the 'texture' as it is still a tad little too chewy than I'd like, though still better from my previous attempts. Any tips on making it more 'airy' are welcome and appreciated : ). My goal is to master a basic white loaf before I dare venture into the more complicated stuff. Fingers crossed!
