Beginner Question...Kneading by hand vs KitchenAid
I made several Italian breads yesterday. All of them began the same way.... Then, you stirred ingrediants in bowl with wooden spoon. Then you used one hand to fold over dough towards center while spinning bowl with other hand. Then came the kneading time...20 minutes or so with 1-2 minute rests along the way.
IS THERE A STANDARD CONVERSION FOR MAKING THE MIX WITH A KITCHENAID MIXER? Does it take 10 minutes? 20 minutes?
I know at some point you get an eye for it or you can touch the dough and see that its right, but I need some general recommendations here. I've made pizza doughs with the kitchenaid and really had no idea when they were done mixing. HOW DO I KNOW WHEN ITS DONE?
