This weeks question comes from Sharon, Cornwall
Hi Paul, I’m going to be baking one of your wholemeal leaves and was wondering if I rub the outside with a little olive oil while the loaf is still hot, like you do with butter for the soft white sandwich loaf, will it make the crust softer? Thanks in advance Sharon
Hi Sharon, my advice would be to reduce the baking time of the loaf by five minutes and this will stop the crust getting too crusty and instead you should have a softer loaf. Happy Baking!
