So I've just bought a kitchen-aid mixer… gimmie your favourite recipies!!
At much aghast from the wife, I’ve impule bought a kitchen-aid standalone mixer to get more into making pizza/bread/cakes/stuff!!
I know there’s a fair few ‘Hollywoods and Berrys’ on here, so if you would be so kind to share your favourite bread etc recipies, I’ll post some smells of baking goods to you…

No ice cream bowl..I went for the mini version of the mixer as our kitchen is (currently) not that large…
I might get the pasta attachment, as though it’s the mini, attachemtns fit it.
I saw a recipie for icecream that you simply mix then pop in the freezer i.e not needing to stir whilst mixing..

Hairy bikers do a good and importantly easy rowie recipe 😉
Delia’s rich fruit scones are ace.
As for bread I started with Jamie Oliver’s basic but he uses too much flour Nd it ends up dense. I prefer olive oil through the kneeding process avoids too much flour getting drawn in to the mix and ending up with an airless loaf of stodge that’s too heavy to rise.Posted 4 months ago
You should have bought a
Hobart make commercial mixers and Kitchen Aid are the plastic-geared domestic division of the same company.
You could have bought a used N50 for the same money as your KA Mini but you’d be safe in the knowledge that you’ll never kill it (they’ve been used to mix concrete by some labs).Plus you can fit all KA accessories onto an N50.
Things like paddles can be expensive though and they are a bit bigger/heavier than the KA.Posted 4 months ago
I believe they may have changed from plastic to powdered metal gears which are better but still not the real deal.Posted 4 months ago
I’m sure the KA mixers are fine but I went down the route of spending the same money (less I believe) on a workhorse that will very likely outlive me and would probably go up in value if bought carefully – look at the deal someone got here!
My research (and use of my mums old kenwood) led me to believe that mixing bread dough is very tough on a mixer…
