KitchenAid C hook New Kneading Method.
« on: April 24, 2010, 10:41:53 AM »
I think I have a major break through on using the KitchenAid mixers with a lift using the C hook.  I posted my test with pictures and video on my baking blog.

Lot more testing to be done, but on this wet dough it worked very well.  It reduced the dough climbing problem and really did a much better job of kneading without as much strain on the mixer.  The mixer didn't want to jump around as much as well.  Be careful though if you get it too low the bowel will pop loose.  The recipe I was making is a recipe for hotdog and hamburger buns so I want post it here.  Hope to make a pizza using this method in the next few days.

Cool blog Randy.  If you don't mind, I'd like to see that bun recipe.  You can post a link to it or just throw the recipe up in the off topics section. 

BTW, that lemon braid bread you did looks fantastic.  very professional.

I started the blog last year so people on the King Arthur Baking circle forum could have a place to post pictures of their work.  The braided bread is by one of the members.  I thought it a great picture as well.

I will post the recipe in the off topic forum.

One of the keys to making this work so well is the twisting action of the dough.  Note a good, wet dough sticks to the bottom so the C hook gives it a good twist.

Randy,

Your bread looks delicious.  :)  I enjoyed reading your blog and also looking at the pictures.  I just started a blog the other week, but haven't gotten very far with it.

Thanks for sharing your blog,

Thank you Norma.  The blog is a group effort so it is always interesting to see the different pictures they post.

I ran a 16oz flour size pizza the other night using this new method.  I use an inch lower to start with but I think the 16oz flour batch size needed lowering 3/4".  The 22oz worked perfect lowering it 1".

I am kind of surprised no one else has tried this nifty trick?
