Raisin Bread screw up
I'm new to bread making and I have what is probably a simple question:
I followed a bread machine recipe for raisin bread and mistakenly added dry milk where none was asked for. The recipe was:
1 cup and 2 tablespoons of water
2 tablespoons of butter
3 cups bread flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 1/2 yeast
3/4 cup raisins
and to that I mistakenly added 3 tablespoons of dry milk.
Question: have I ruined the raisin bread. What will the milk do to the bread?
Try it; you'll probably like it. The crumb will be a little softer than without the powdered milk. If the dry milk is not special baker's milk, the loaf may not rise as much.
All in all, it still sounds edible......
The powdered milk seemed to make no difference that I could tell......
the yeast eats sugars and the milk the proteins!
so it will be less sweet and more soft as a crumb!
