“An interesting bread - more like a roll, really - that my daughter made yesterday. She made in in the "dough" cycle of the breadmaker - it proved far too wet and so we added more flour. The instructions are for hand made and I don't know if this will affect the wetness/dryness. The extra flour wasn't a problem. The salt isn't included in the dough making. This is the one change I would make - I'd add some salt to the dough as well as sprinkling sea salt on top. The breads are quite flat.BTW strong flour is the English name for bread flour. From a recipe card with no name on it.”
