I am in serious need of help! I used to bake bread quite a lot, however
hadn't for about 18 months. The other day I decided to try baking again,
using a little extra knowledge from reading this list...
I used the following recipe:
14g dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
4 cups flour (white - unbleached)
1 teaspoon dough enhancer (lecithin, ginger, Vit C powder as per this list)
water (can't quite remember how much)
Now, I forgot to put salt in the mix, but didn't think this was a problem.
I let the dough rise for about 1 hour, knocked it back and kneaded again
for about 5 mins. Shaped into a loaf and let rise for another hour and
then baked. It came out looking beautiful.
The problem is that the bread tastes of yeast. Not just mildly either! Am
I using the wrong amount of yeast? The measurements are as per the yeast
Is it the dough enhancer that is causing me trouble?
Thanking you all in advance,
