Hobart C-10

August 3, 2020 - 9:33pm -- rhulsman

I recently obtained a Hobart C-10 mixer which I am in the process of restoring. I would like to know the original color of the mixer. There is an avocado green color under a thick coat of white. Does anyone know if this was the original color. Were they all the same color or did they have  options. Also I would like to date the mixer, but the parts people at Hobart said their records only go back to 1949. Judging from the wiring methods and equipment I believe this mixer is from the 1920's.

Uses for Lemons

August 3, 2020 - 9:26pm -- EarlyRiserBakery

Hey TFL! Long time lurker, recently made an account and now I'm posting!

I've got a loaf in my bakery that uses lemon zest, and I'm finding myself with tons of zested lemons lying around. I'm wondering if I could get some suggestions for uses for either the juice, or the whole rest of them! So far we just do bread and there's only so much lemonade a person can drink...


Thanks so much advance!

Dough "spills" out too much - Not just sourdough

August 3, 2020 - 1:49pm -- Patryk

Hi All,

I'm having an issue with pretty much all my baked goods, but I'm posting here as it becomes more difficult to handle when I now got into sourdough baking.

Anytime I follow baking recipes online, for anything, any website, etc. my batter / dough / bread will be "looser" than in the video or more moist. Usually, this is not much of an issue, it still works out well.

7 months old. Used for about 2 months in a micro bakery. I really liked it for its bake quality and ease of setup and transport. I needed more capacity.  These are back ordered to at least December in the US.

70% Rye Loaf Cracked

August 3, 2020 - 12:10pm -- Song Of The Baker

Hey all.  Been quite a while since I've been on here.  Back at baking breads again!  I just tried out a 70% rye loaf (first one for me since 2012!), formula found here:

As you can see in the photo below, there are quite a few cracks, even though I slashed quite well.  Is this a classic sign of overproofing?  I wouldnt be surprised as I did ferment and proof in a very warm environment.
