Milk bread failing to rise
For some reason in my bread machine any milk bread reciepes fail to rise i have tried 2-3 now and all give the same result - even the recipe in my bread machine instruction book. I can make a great loaf with milk powder and water. First attempt i thought may have failed as the milk may have been slightly to warm after scalding and cooling. So on second attempt though i ensured it was luke warm - but this receipe had butter in it (instead of oil). Still no rise. The dough is rising about 1/4 of my milk powder bread.
I see lots of milk bread receipes and no one states this as a problem, some say to scald some say no need...
We tend to buy long life milk for convience factor could this be the cause? Although the milk powder is also long life as well?
The bread i make with milk powder is great and the crumb is great for toast just not sandwiches. All the sandwich bread reciepes seem to be liquid milk ones...
