crusty top

atara

I am finding that many of my breads are coming out with a very hard outer crust. I put a pan of water in the oven while they bake but somehow it does not help. Is there anything to brush on the top to make it softer?

Hello atara,

What temperature are you baking at and for how long?  Two possibilities are temperature too high or baking too long (or both).

Keep on bakin'
