Classic White Bread, Sticky Dough, Please help!!
I use 3 cups of King Arthur bread flour, 1 package of Active dry yeast (1/4 cup of 110 F warm water, sugar, 10 mins), salt, sugar, 1/2 cup of milk mix in with 1/2 up of warm water, 3 tbsp butter. The dough came out very soft and sticky and very hard to knead. I put in another cup of flour, still sticky, I freaked out and throw the dough away. The kitchen was hot, so about 1 and 1/2 hour later I saw the dough rise up in my trash can, I felt stupid for throwing it away. Please help!!! What is wrong with this receipe? Too much water? If it happen again, what should I do? Thanks very much.
