KA blog and hand kneading vs bread machine
I just read the following blog on the KA website.
Near the end there is a photo that shows two slices of bread, one kneaded in a bread machine, one by hand and points out the machine kneaded one is much lighter and airier. It doesn't say why!
Since I knead by hand and would like my sandwich bread to look more like the one from the machine, I hope someone can tell me how one might modify their hand kneading technique to create the lighter airier loaf.
Picture is at this link, their comment is quoted below:
"On the left, bread whose dough was kneaded in a bread machine. On the right, bread from dough kneaded by hand.
If you prefer a lighter, airier bread, and have a bread machine, use the machine to knead your dough before baking in the oven. For a denser loaf, knead by hand."
