What happens if you add too much flour

Answered By: Jacob Hayes Date: created: Jun 17 2022

What happens if I forgot to add salt to my bread dough

Why does dough need to rise twice

Answered By: Evan White Date: created: Apr 17 2023

Allowing dough to rise twice results in a finer gluten structure than allowing it to rise once. It results in a smaller crumb and prevents huge gaping airholes in your bread. The reason that you have to let it re-rise is that you just pushed all the air out with the kneading you did developing that gluten structure.

What kills yeast in dough

Answered By: Oliver Robinson Date: created: Feb 02 2023

Many recipes call for you to “proof” the yeast by mixing it with warm water before adding the mixture to your flour and other ingredients. Instead of using warm water, though, use water of at least 140 degrees Fahrenheit. This is hot enough to kill all of the yeast.
