Hiya, I'm looking to urgently a Danish Dough Whisk for my Mum's birthday.
I'm in the UK, & so buying choice are limited (prices are generally way over the top).
However, I've found these 2 whisks - but can't decide between them!
This type: (the standard, more commonly available variant)
Hi there, I have dreams of baking beautiful breads, twists, rolls and buns... but I have sad dough. HELP! I started with putting my yeast (not expired) in a clean bowl with warm water (not too hot, not too cool) for 1/2 hr. It starts to froth and I add my other ingredients. I go to kneed and after 5-8 minutes it looks like this? Where's my spring? Where's my elastic master piece? Please help this beginner get her basics right. This particular recipe was 3 teasp yeast, 1 cup + 2 tblsp water, tblsp sugar, teasp salt, 3 cups of flour.
Quick question: what do you use when you need to let your dough rest on the bench for a while? I've used floursack towels, but don't like how they dry out the dough. I will scale and round my loaves, then let them rest for 10-20 minutes. During that time, it would really be best if they're covered, but I don't want to have to deal with plastic sheets (they'd have to be food-safe, anyway).
Is there a better fabric available that would keep the dough moist, not stick and be easy to handle and store?
Thanks in advance,
Hi, I have been reading and learning since joining a few months ago. Now I have a question for you folks:
My wife's father has offered to buy her a stand mixer in the $200-300 price range. I realize that this is pretty low on the scale, especially if we're talking about kneading much dough. Still, she wants to know what is the best value, in you opinions, within those limits. If you can please explain your reasoning, it would help us. Thanks very much for your help.
By the way, he insists on buying new and probably online as he doesn't get around much anymore.
I have a problem with my bagels coming out inconsistent, namely, some are flat (not desired, in this case) while others are puffy (preferred). I used Peter Reinhart's trusted recipe from the Bread Baker's Apprentice.
Kitchenaid HOBART (i.e. it can actually handle dough kneading) Mixer in excellent condition. Comes with bowl shield, paddle & whisk attachments, and dough hook, plus 5 quart stainless steel mixing bowl. Photos are available upon request.
Beautiful off white color with very few blemishes. Simply stated it’s a workhorse. Lack of counter space near an outlet and a recent lumbar disc herniation make it necessary for me to say goodbye to this reliable and favored member of my appliance family.
