OK bread bakers/Kitchen aid users, I must be doing SOMETHING wrong!
This afternoon, I used the KA again, this time to mix up some bread dough, using a TNT recipe from Nancy of Around a kitchen table. First rise was perfect, then I punched it down and placed it in awaiting bread pans to rise again. I gave it more time, still a bit flatter than normal. I brushed on a milk glaze-that may have been my mistake as the recipe didn't specify to do this before or after baking off the bread. I now have 2 flattish loaves of white bread, which I am certain are edible, just not up to my usual results.
Any tips or ideas? I can't life my bread maker and DD has not been home on both occassions, one of the reasons that I turned to my KA that sits out on my counter.
UPDATE: I had eggs and toast for lunch. It tastes absolutely fine, it's just a very flat loaf.
