Making better bread

I've been making bread in my kitchenaid mixer for 3 or so years, and it's always been 'okay'. I recently realized that if I add way more water to the dough than I had been, and let it rise even though it's kind of 'soupy' then the loaves come out more slicable and less likely to fall apart.

A hefty addition of either olive oil or coconut oil helps keep them moist.

After being frustrated with too-dense unslicable bread for the past few years, this sure is nice! :)

I was stuck on adding flour 'til the dough wraps around the hook and cleans the side of the bowl' and that didn't seem to work well, in my case :)
