I need help for baking bread
I am new here and I need help, yesterday I mad a recipe I found on the King Arthur site for the pullman pan, I started it in my Zo machine, which is where I messed up, I realized too late that I forgot to put in kneading blades, so I had to dump my ingredients in a bowl and put them in and replace, the loaf seemed better than I have ever made before, For once I cut the slices perfect, but I tasted a piece and it was horrible, it was heavy and dense. I did use malt milk powder from the store, I do have the diastatic malt powder from KA, someone said I could use the store stuff. I can't afford to keep wasting all the ingredients. I hope the only thing I did wrong was having to dump out the mixture for the blades. Any ideas?
