How do you make soft bread?

My bread always comes out hard and crusty.

Softer crusts can be made by adding more fat to a recipe (oil or butter) or by brushing the dough with oil or butter during the final rise. The other way to get a soft crust is by bagging the completely cooled fresh-baked loaf in plastic several hours. Steaming the first ten minutes of baking gives a chewy-crisp "bakery" crust.

I learned this trick from the Amish ladies I know, they add water in a pan underneath the rack when they are baking bread, put a bit of it in another pan and place it underneath the loaf you are baking. This works well.
