New to Baking Bread, Can you help me out with a recipe
Hello, so happy to have come across this site! I have a question, which the answer seems obvious but I seem to recall differently.
I used to bake bread for a deli. They had their own whole wheat bread, original and with flax seed. I used to mix with a Hobart mixer. The recipe nets 6 loaves. I don't have a Hobart mixer and so I need to make 1/2 the recipe in order to mix in my 6 qt mixer. The Hobart was a 20 qt...I used 8 cups water, 2 cups oil, 3 cups honey, salt, yeast and 9 large scoops of flour. I recall the recipe for less than the 6 loaves was not just a matter of halfing the recipe...it still required almost the same amount of water...just less some of the other ingredients. Maybe I'm mistaken, but can someone tell me...should I be able to half the recipe and get the same results netting 3 loaves?
I sure miss that Hobart mixer!
