Breadmaker loaf's crust is too crispy - needs to be a bit chewier - what should I add?

Normal recipe flour/water/oil/salt/sugar/yeast

Can't add milk/egg as I'm intolerant - so what should I add?

does it have a 'light' 'dark' setting?
leaving the loaf over night wrapped in a kitchen towel also helps.

I second wrapping it in a clean dry tea towel as soon as it comes out. That will really soften the crust to a lovely level.

I would not leave it overnight though, just until it is cool enough to put away.

Thanks guys I never got to try your ideas because the next 3 loaves came out like bricks

So I bought some new yeast & I am about to try again
