How Do I Deal with Humidity When Baking Bread in the Tropics?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: I live in the tropics, and making bread here is difficult at best. The commercial bakeries all use very high-tech ovens that seem to alleviate a lot of the problems. I’ve been told the problem is the humidity?

There must be ways to bake my own bread in the tropics because a few small bakeries here don’t have the fancy ovens and still turn out great breads.

Anything I’ve made so far could easily have been used as a hammer to drive a nail with. Any suggestions? I’m sure a lot of folks want the answer to this problem.
