#3. Limit the Flour in Your Dough.
One of the fundamental sticking points for many people is the range of flour amounts that many recipes call for. Most of us like clear instructions, and telling us that a specific bread requires between 7-8 cups of flour is just not precise enough for us. Maybe this will help.
Most sandwich bread does best when the ratio of flour to water is 2:1. So, for every 4.4 oz bread flour, you'll need 2.2 oz water by weight. So, one-half the weight of the flour is the amount of water you'll need.
Know that even if you think the dough seems too sticky if your ratio is correct, your bread will be just fine. Resist adding extra flour. While adding more flour does make the dough less sticky, it invariably leads to a dense loaf that does not rise as much as it should.
