What happens if you over knead bread dough?
Furthermore, what happens if you knead bread dough too long?
There are several negative effects from over-kneading bread dough: Overheating - if the dough gets too warm, it will ferment too quickly (or over ferment) and will therefore lack flavour. Oxidisation - kneading for too long can cause the flour to oxidise and bleach, again impairing flavour.
Beside above, how long should bread dough be kneaded? 10-12 minutes
In this manner, what happens if you overwork dough?
Overworked dough can happen when using a stand mixer. Dough will feel “tight” and tough, as the gluten molecules have become damaged, meaning that it won't stretch, only break, when you try to pull or roll it. Underworked dough on the other hand, won't form a ball shape easily.
What does over kneaded bread look like?
When you cut into an over kneaded dough, you will notice that the interior is very dry and crumbly. The slices will likely fall apart rather than holding their shape. While the general taste of the bread may be the same, it will not have a nice mouth feel but, again, be dry, dense and crumbly- no thank you!
