I put everything into KitchenAid and put it on the lowest speed.. after 4 minutes.. no dough ball has really formed... just in the middle around the hook a bit but around the bowl was just unmixed flour. I took off the bowl and mixed the rest of it by hand. It is a very tough dough to work together by hand.. came out very dry and crumbly.. is this how its suppose to come out?
I made the recipe posted on this site:
1 pound (or about 3 1/2 cups) high gluten flour
3/4 cup warm water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
In a heavy-duty stand mixer (e.g., KitchenAid) fitted with dough hook, add the water, oil, yeast, salt, and sugar. Mix thoroughly until yeast has fully dissolved. Add flour and mix on low speed until all of the flour and water have mixed and a stiff dough ball forms, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stop mixing as soon as the dough ball forms as this type of dough should not be kneaded.
