Mersea, how much fluid do you use? I got halfway through and realised :shock: I should have checked beforehand!

My breadmaker booklet said 180ml of water and 2tbsp skimmed milk for 400g flour, so I cut the water down by a third.

We'll see how my guesswork comes out!!
Same old nonsense.

Hi Flâneur,

Sorry you did not follow the recipe I gave you. NO milk, NO powdered milk, NO water.
Just the ingredients I gave you and a perfect result you will have.
Would be interested to know what you brioche turned out like. Maybe even better.
All the best.

Mersea, I suppose any liquid content comes from the eggs and the melted butter, but perhaps Flaneur was mislead by you saying "My bread maker is a Panasonic so you start with the dry ingredients first", implying, to a newbie, that the liquid ingredients follow.

And also factor in my ididocy :lol:

It was a weird flat thing only half mixed, with a layer of flour.

Onwards and upwards: I'll try again!!
