Problem Getting Full Window
I'm using a "straight dough" recipe from Graincraft flour mills with the addition of a poolish.
Using a Kitchenaid 500.
The dough weighs about 3 and a half pounds.
The mixer struggles and heats up too much with this mix of all bread flour (Morbread) sugar, oil and dried milk powder.
The second attempt reduced the milk powder and the dough was easier for the mixer to knead.
Today's bake was mixed for 10 min on a slow speed and 3 on medium.
After the first rise I stretched it and it broke well before window paning.
I'm thinking to reduce the amount of dough and let the mixer beat on med for 10 min.
Or...I'd hate to think that this mixer is too weak for this flour.
I'd really appreciate any ideas you have.
