Dough Hook Doesn't Knead
I wanted to automate the process of kneading bread dough so I got a Kitchen Aid K5A and a spiral dough hook. What happens is that after a few minutes of operation, all of the dough has wrapped itself around the hook which is whirling around and around with this glob of dough wrapped around it, but there is no real action on the dough. It is not being stretched or kneaded; it's just spinning around and around, wrapped around the hook as the motor gets warmer and warmer. I swapped in the "C" hook and the mixing paddle and the results are the same. I had to dump the dough onto the counter where I did a hand knead. So much for labor savings.
What am I doing wrong?
