Nearly Water-like Dough Problem
I have been making this recipe for about a month and not had a problem.
4 cups of flour
2 cups water
1/4 teaspoon yeast
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
Stir about 3-5 minutes until the flour is blended in. Place tin foil over the bowl and let it rise for 18 - 22 hours.
It rises fine but the problem is the last two times I went to punch it down and get ready to shape the loaf - it was like water. I couldn't shape the loaf at all and had to throw it out.
What went wrong?
Could I have let is sit too long?
Could the temperature been too hot in my apartment?
