Crusty Bread Baking Tips for Best Results

  1. Mixing Times
    • Play around with mixing times – using the whisk and not the dough hook, mix fast on for a few minutes changes the consistency of the batter.  Try mixxing differently and see what works best for your needs
    • If the batter is very soft you don’t want to mix long on high speed, here you want to mix gently until its just combined
  1. Underdone Bread
    • If the bread is underdone, reduce the baking temperature and bake for longer. If the crust gets too dark, then you can place foil over the loaf for the last 10 – 15 minutes of baking.
    • Bake in a smaller loaf pan
  1. Crumbly Bread
    • Add a little more liquid/oil
    • Slice only when its cold
    • Adding Nuts, Seeds, Dried Fruit, Nut Flour, Olives, all add to the texture and taste
  1. Adding Yeast
    • Yeast adds a lovely flavour, but it doesn’t result in the same rising that you get when baking with gluten. The crusty bread mix has baking powder to assist the rising
  1. Use Buttermilk instead of water
    • Buttermilk gives a lighter texture to the bread
  1. Freeze bread that is left over
    • Slice and freeze leftover bread
