bread bakers please: my grotesque "finger" loaves

aforkcalledspoon | Jun 27, 2009 04:29 PM

This is a plea for help. All the loaves of bread I make (non non-knead variety) inevitably deflate and end up as flat, ovoid blobs instead of trim, tall, oblong loaves. Does this mean anything? Like am I not kneading enough, or too much flour, or.... please correct my ways. The taste is usually fine, maybe a little dense? But I don't know if that is the recipe, or just my bad skills. Please save me from a lifetime of "finger" sandwiches because quite literally, once sliced, the bread resembles fingers. NOT ATTRACTIVE!!!!
