I seek correction in my bread recipe
I am completely new to baking, and I tried to bake bread the other day. It did not turn out well. I searched the web, but did not find a solution. I need some advice, so please humour me and tell me what I can do to correct this.
I was looking to make a very simple bread and so used simple recipes from the internet. I used all purpose flour and mixed in active dry yeast as per the proportion specified on the yeast packet. I kneaded the dough, let it sit until it rose to double its size, then "punched it" back again, and let it rise to double the size again. I tthen baked it at 190 C for close to an hour.
When it was baking itself, I could see the crust had become hard. The texture inside too was not exactly like that of a bread. I was looking to make the typical usual loaf we use for sandwiches. Perhaps I should buy a baking tray? Please advise
