I have a new kitchen mixer, a Kenwood KM636. It's way better than my wimpy Phillips HR1565. It costs a lot more but it's by no means a rolls royce in the kitchen appliance world. More like a entry level straight forward kind of appliance. It's also very heavy. When I first used it, I tilted the head to remove the bowl and I almost sent the whole machine crashing to the floor!
My first bake using the mixer was of course bread. I was dying to try out the dough hook and it was not bad at all.
The machine is super noisy and my dining table vibrated crazily. Because the machine is heavy, I don't like the idea of putting it away in the box and taking it out whenever I want to use it. So I left it on the dining table. Permanently. Unfortunately it's in the way.
The recipe I used is similar to this one. There's another version for a smaller scale. Next time I want to try the whole wheat version here.
So what I baked is called Pain de Mie which is a sandwich loaf.
Before I used the pullman loaf tin, I googled for a way to calculate how much dough my tin could bake but came up empty. Does anyone know? I wonder if I should just pour water into the tin until 3/4 and weigh that amount of water. Does that sound logical?
We made luncheon meat sandwich and I want to declare it's as good as any bread from a bakery.
