Am just starting to make bread, am an absolute novice at it and don’t have the Bread Bible either. Have a coupla questions, kindly answer.
Made some regular rolls yes’day and they came out ok, want to know how I can get a softer crust…is it best to add yeast with water or milk?
Also, is it ok for the dough to be sticky, does it need to spring back when poked with two fingers?
Is adding 2 tsps active dry yeast enough for 4 to 5 cups flour?
Why do some people suggest to put an egg wash on the bread rolls before they go into baking?
Does it need to have three rises?
I use all purpose since we do not have access to bread flour.
