How to knead a very sticky dough
Hi everyone. I'm new to this site and as well as making bread too.
Okay. Previously, I've baked using cup measurement and the dough is pretty smooth and elastic. But I've heard people saying that cup measurement is not that accurate and the dough is suppose to be sticky, so that the bread is soft and fluffy.
And then I tried again using the weighing scale to measure my bread flour. And this time, the dough is so so so sticky! I couldn't knead at all, it sticks on my hand, the bowl and the counter too.
I tried putting flour on the dough but it still sticks so I add again and again. But it's still so sticky so I did not knead much. I do not want to add too much flour but I just couldn't help it. So, in the end, the bread came out so dense. I don't know how to knead in such a sticky situation.
Your reply is appreciated. Thanks.
