Oh well... sourdough can be tough. Keep practicing, thats the only way. I am trying to make Pan de Cristal. 106% hydration. Quite the challenge.

Sounds hard to do.

But for me, I am very happy with all white sourdough, so moving on.

Next for me is Brioche and Croissants for the butter fun.

I do need to fix the soft crush loaf and buns, as dad with his teeth finds hard crusts difficult
Probably going to order a new loaf tin, with a lid. This should help keep the crust soft.
But as for burger buns (mcdonalds style) no idea yet.

So that is the next target in a few weeks.
;D

2 tries at pan de cristal failed.  >:(

As for the soft crust - here are a few hints and ideas.

- higher hydration for the dough (I know it's hard)
- lower fermentation/rise time
- keep dough moist / don't let it dry

Basically you don't want the dough to develop any "skin" at all. Buy yeast and try to make rolls. Use a lot of yeast, so dough will rise fast. Around 65% hydration is enough for that experiment. Keep the dough moist all the time. Use plastic bags to prevent air to get on the dough.

When baking, use steam a lot until the rolls won't rise anymore. Then open oven to release steam. 10s is NOT enough. Better go for 1 min or so. After baking let rolls cool until they are around 40C, then put in plastic bag or cover etc. The remaining water in the crumb will soften the crust.

Good luck!

I will buy a bread tin with a lid, this seems to also help create a soft crust.
I am going to try and get one with a more square shape.
Bread baked in that should have a soft crust and more like a standard white loaf.

But going to wait a few weeks still. :)

Baked this yesterday evening, I am very pleased with it. If I can do this not just by accident, I'll claim a level-up in breadmaking ;) Time will tell, if that was just a lucky accident.

P.S. Good morning!
