BBA sticky buns - more flour needed?
I'm in the process of making the BBA sticky buns, but when I was making the dough, the 3 1/2 cups of flour only left the dough soupy, nowhere near the ball capable of getting stretched by a dough hook. I'm not quite sure what the problem was - I don't think I added too much of any other ingredient, and although I used all-purpose flour initially (king arthur), the recipie says either all-purpose or bread flour is fine. I wound up adding at least 2 cups of bread flour to get it somewhat stretchy, but I'm not quite sure what happened. Has anyone else had this happen to this recipie? I had a similar experience creating the seed culture (the amount indicated never resulted in anything you could turn into a ball as the recipie contemplates). Could this be a humidity issue or...?
