how much flour will my mixer hold?
I have a Cheftronic stand mixer, 5.3 quart that has a dough hook along with all the other attachments, plus a grinder and a blender.
What I am wondering is, it states in the book that it can hold 1500 grams of flour. I am going that if a cup of flour is 128 grams, that is 11.7 "cups" as a cup is around 128 grams. That seems like a awful lo of flour.
With that amount of flour allowed to be used, I could make a recipe that calls for 6-9 cups of flour and will make two or more loaves. Am I figuring that right?
I don't know if I will later on want to make that many loaves at one time, maybe make one or two and freeze another, or even two, loaves for later use. Does anyone have a stand mixer of the size of mine and make bread that requires a lot of flour, does it do okay, or should I continue to modify recipes to make just one loaf.
I want to try another loaf of white sandwich bread today and then later on this week a loaf of French or Italian bread. And also a Casatiello, as our daughter will in Feb be getting married and he is from Italy and he is a wine snob :) My hubby likes Muscato wine and he remarked that is not a real wine.
