how much dough can I make at once in 5 qt stand mixer?
I just opened my new 5 qt KitchenAID stand mixer. First time I've ever had one. My main reason for getting it was to be able to make 3 loaves of bread at once - my bread machine will only knead dough for 1.5 x my usual recipe.
However I can't find any reliable info as to the limit that the stand mixer can handle? I did triple my recipe yesterday - so 1275 grams whole wheat flour - and I was worried that the dough hook was squeaking erratically and I was afraid to put it on speed 2 or keep it on longer than a minute at a time. I also felt the top of the mixer and it did feel warm though not hot. I dont know how warm is too warm. SO I ended up kneading somewhat by hand which was not a bad thing to do but if I can't knead with it I don't really see the need for this fancy mixer.
