Help from bread-makers please?
Haven't had store-bought bread in years. Always made my own. Make a batch from mom's old recipe about every 10 days. Excellent results every time, but....
Getting old enough that forearms and wrists and hands starting to hurt during mixing and kneading -- a total of about 12-15 minutes of pain. Will one of those KA mixers with dough-hooks handle mixing/kneading chores? Nicely, I mean?
I'm accustomed to treating my dough gently and have no experience with any mixing/kneading machine. Would need to be pretty good sized. My dough-batch is about 6 1/2 lbs. (About 8 cups of flour and five cups of liquid)
Would surely appreciate advice from people who understand bread and use such machines.
