I think I can answer your question. When you added the 100-grams of milk powder did you also increase the dough absorption to compensate for the added absorption of the milk powder? Milk powder/dry milk has an absorption factor of about 1.1 or put another way, 100-grams of dry milk will require that the dough absorption be increased 1.1 times the weight of the dry milk. So in this case you should have added an additional 110-grams/ml of water to the dough. If you do that, I think you will correct the problem you are seeing.
