few things to take into account
1- dont use microwave too much.. the more u use the microwave the more it losses water.. think about how u bread i nthe microwave .. if u put it too much it will get dry.. personally i used to use the microwave alot when i didnt know how to make my MMF properly and it used to come out too hard form the start.. a solution i found was to actually add water to it when microwaving
2 if u didnt microwave it alot maybe u just need to kneed it alittle more i find that the head from ur hand will sofen it alittle..
