Inadequate kneading in kitchen-aid?

December 17, 2012 - 10:12am -- alittlesquirrely

Hello !  Kneading problem: When I use my KA to knead the bread, (speed 2) the dough climbs up the dough hook with a small attachment of dough at the bottom of the bowl after only a couple of minutes. I know this is not sufficient for proper gluten development. Question: Is the dough still getting kneaded properly while wrapped around the hook? I scrape it down, but it climbs up again in a minute or two. Same thing happens with the paddle.  Result: Breads all fall apart after baking when I try to slice. Thanks for your help.
