Would you bake if you didn't knead with your hands?
I was just wondering if I'd be so interested in baking bread if I automated much of the process using my Kitchen Aid professional series mixer. I'm thinking I probably won't be as interested, though the interest would still be there. What I live about the bread making process is how hands-on it is. I mix everything by hand. The only thing that use machines are the digital scale (which I just started using; I was using measuring cups before) and the oven.
Wondering if there's anyone here who would be less interested in making bread if they automated the mixing and kneading process.
