Question of the week

This weeks question comes from Carol 

Carol asks:

Hi Paul, my friend and I made a sourdough loaf today using your recipe. It tasted delicious and had a really good crust, but it was a bit dense. Can you please give us some tips on how to make it a bit more open in texture? Would greatly appreciate your advice.  Thanks Carol 

Paul says:

Hi Carol, I am so glad you that you tried the recipe and that you enjoyed the taste. To get a more open structure you need a wetter dough. Although this is harder to work with you will find that the structure will be more to your liking. Give it a go and fingers crossed you will see a difference. Happy baking, Paul!
