Question about using a KitchenAid mixer
Last weekend I made two batches of bread from the Lesson 1 recipe on this site. The first one I made and kneaded by hand and the second was made using the dough hook on my mixer. I could sorta feel when the dough was ready by hand-kneading, but when I used the hook, I saw the dough riding up the hook in some sort of mad attempt to eat the gears or some such!
1) Is this a sign that the dough is either a) done or b) possesed?
2) I scraped it back down, but it insisted that it wanted up -- is this normal behavior?
3) After being a bit freaked out, I scraped it out of the mixing bowl and kneaded it by hand a bit. Should I have done this?
Both loaves turned out ok, but I won't use the dough hook until I know the dough won't eat my mixer...
Thanks in advance...
