I baked a sourdough loaf yesterday having followed the recipe and instructions. My loaf turned out with a nice crust but it was very dense and heavy. Any suggestions.
The oven I have is a fan oven. I baked the bread at 450f but it started to brown within a few minutes so I reduced the tempreture to 400f and baked the loaf for about 40 minutes.
I can't seem to bake bread which is light. All my loaves so far have been heavy and dense :-( Help!
