Dense Loaf. Help
Took delivery of some organic bread flour that I purchased, today and had a go at making my first load and it came out so dense, almost like cake. Wondered what I did wrong?
Mixed it in a bowl and then worked the dough for about 5 mins. Let it prove for about 90 mins until it doubled in size. Took it out and knocked it back, shaped it and let it prove again for about an hour. Oven was set to 425f and cooked it for 15 mins and then turned it down to 375f for a further 20 mins.
It came out nice and brown but the inside is really really dense.
