Kneading Time and Speed with stand mixer?

December 11, 2009 - 1:24pm -- gardenchef

Hi This is my first foray into a stand mixer. received my VIKING  today and have my first loaves of COUNTRY WHITE BREAD  in the oven now. Smells heavenly in here!!!

I have to say though after yearsr of kneading by hand I was flabbergasted by the lack of time needed for kneading!?!?!? I had the same consistancy as 10 minute hand kneaded bread in less than 2 mins on low speed. If this ok...doesn't it need time while kneading to begin it's rising process or something?

What speed? and how many minutes? do you recommend for kneading yeast doughs : )
