Does any one use a food processor to make their dough? I have a recicpe for rye bread(doesn't say to use a food processor) that wants you to MIX, BEAT VERY HARD FOR 3 MIN., And KNEAD FOR 8-10 MIN. Can the food processor do all this? I guess I want to know if you can make all doughs using a food processor or just some recipes or do you have to adapt the recipe when using the processor? I bought a pretty good 14 cup Cuisinart that should be strong enough but not sure when to use it for doughs. Any one have any ideas?
With all the recent discussion on making baguettes, I thought some of you might be interested in a recent posting about baguettes on my brand-spankin'-new bread blog:
Hey there everybody. I just made this baking video http://youtube.com/watch?v=QfaXbn5HpAY and put it up on YouTube - a little blurry, but I'll try putting a clearer version on our bakery site later. It's a 'how to' without the commentary (if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video must be worth...). Anyway, let me know what you think, and if you'd like any other topics addressed in my future videos. The next one will be on kneading and folding whole wheat dough. Thanks!
