My Viking 7 quart mixer really struggled with this recipe. I was unable to mix the entire batch at one time. I’ve always been able to mix it all with the Classic recipe. Even after very carefully weighing each and every ingredient, the dough was very thick and heavy, causing the mixer to shut down numerous times. The loaves came out short and squatty.
I’ve been baking with the Classic recipe for over a year. I’m going back to that next time.
