Can you over knead dough

Answered By: Gregory Scott Date: created: Sep 10 2022

Over-kneaded dough will also tear easily; in under-kneaded dough this is because the gluten hasn’t become elastic enough, but in over-kneaded dough, this means that the gluten is so tight that it has very little give. If you think you’ve over-kneaded the dough, try letting it rise a little longer before shaping it.

Why is my bread dense and gummy

Answered By: Graham Morgan Date: created: Nov 18 2022

What makes bread soft for days

Answered By: Albert Thomas Date: created: Jan 19 2023

The dough then solidifies, keeping its shape. … Yeast needs water to do its work, dough that is too dry will inhibit the yeast.

Why is my yeast bread so dense

Answered By: Gavin Thomas Date: created: Oct 28 2022

Bread is usually dense as there isn’t enough gas in the gluten structure. Either not enough gas is produced or there is plenty but doesn’t get retained. Gas raises the bread by opening up the gluten network. … The fermentation from the yeast is not powerful enough to create enough gas.
