Mixing Tips

Converting Your Recipe for the Mixer

The mixing instructions for recipes in this book can guide you in converting your own favorite recipes for preparation with your KitchenAid mixer. Look for recipes similar to yours and then adapt your recipes to use the procedures in the similar KitchenAid recipes.

For example. the “quick mix” method (sometimes referred to as the “dump” method) is ideal for simple cakes. such as the Quick Yellow Cake and Easy White Cake included in this book. This method calls for combining dry ingredients with most or all liquid ingredients in one step.

More elaborate cakes. such as Caramel Walnut Banana Torte. should be prepared using the traditional cake mixing method. With this method. sugar and the shortening. butter or margarine are thoroughly mixed (creamed) before other ingredients are added.

For all cakes. mixing times may change because your KitchenAid mixer works more quickly than other mixers. In general. mixing a cake with the KitchenAid mixer will take about half the time called for in most cake recipes.

To help determine the ideal mixing time. observe the batter or dough and mix only until it has the desired appearance described in your recipe. such as “smooth and creamy.” To select the best mixing speeds. use the Speed Control Guide on page 12.

Adding Ingredients

Always add ingredients as close to side of bowl as possible. not directly into moving beater. The Pouring Shield can be used to simplify adding ingredients.

NOTE: If ingredients in very bottom of bowl are not thoroughly mixed. then the beater is not far enough into the bowl. See “Beater to Bowl Clearance. page 11.

Cake Mixes

When preparing packaged cake mixes. use Speed 2 for low speed.

Speed 4 for medium speed. and Speed 6 for high speed. For best results. mix for the time stated on the package directions.

Adding Nuts. Raisins or Candied Fruits

Follow individual recipes for guidelines on including these ingredients. In general. solid materials should be folded in the last few seconds of mixing on Stir Speed. The batter should be thick enough to prevent the fruit or nuts from sinking to the bottom of the pan during baking. Sticky fruits should be dusted with flour for better distribution in the batter.

Liquid Mixtures

Mixtures containing large amounts of liquid ingredients should be mixed at lower speeds to avoid splashing.

Increase speed only after mixture has thickened.

Egg Whites

Place room temperature egg whites in clean. dry bowl. Attach bowl and wire whip. To avoid splashing. gradually turn to designated speed and whip to desired stage. See chart below.

AMOUNT SPEED

Whipping Stages

With your KitchenAid mixer. egg whites whip quickly. So. watch carefully to avoid overwhipping. This list tells you what to expect.

Frothy Large. uneven air bubbles.

Begins to Hold Shape Air bubbles are fine and compact; product is white.

Soft Peak Tips of peaks fall over when wire whip is removed.

Almost Stiff Sharp peaks form when wire whip is removed. but whites are actually soft.

Stiff but not Dry Sharp. stiff peaks form when wire whip is removed. Whites are uniform in color and glisten.

Stiff and Dry Sharp. stiff peaks form when wire whip is removed. Whites are speckled and dull in appearance.

Whipped Cream

Pour cold whipping cream into chilled bowl. Attach bowl and wire whip. To avoid splashing. gradually turn to designated speed and whip to desired stage. See chart below.

AMOUNT SPEED

1⁄4 cup .GRADUALLY to 10 1⁄2 cup .GRADUALLY to 10 1 cup GRADUALLY to 8 1 pint GRADUALLY to 8

Whipping Stages

Watch cream closely during whipping. Because your KitchenAid mixer whips so quickly. there are just a few seconds between whipping stages. Look for these characteristics:

Begins to Thicken Cream is thick and custard-like.

Holds Its Shape Cream forms soft peaks when wire whip is removed. Can be folded into other ingredients when making desserts and sauces.

Stiff Cream stands in stiff. sharp peaks when wire whip is removed. Use for topping on cakes or desserts. or filling for cream puffs.

“Rapid Mix” describes a bread baking method that calls for dry yeast to be mixed with other dry ingredients before liquid is added. In contrast. the traditional method is to dissolve yeast in warm water.

1. Place all dry ingredients including yeast into bowl. except last 1 to 2 cups flour.

2. Attach bowl and dough hook.

Lock mixer head (tilt-head models) or raise mixer bowl (bowl-lift models). Turn to Speed 2 and mix about 15 seconds. or until ingredients are combined.

3. Continuing on Speed 2. gradually add liquid ingredients to flour mixture and mix 1 to 2 minutes longer. See Illustration A.

NOTE: If liquid ingredients are added too quickly. they will form a pool around the dough hook and slow down mixing process.

4. Continuing on Speed 2. gently add remaining flour. 1⁄2 cup at a time. See Illustration B. Mix until dough clings to hook and cleans sides of bowl. about 2 minutes.

5. When dough clings to hook. knead on Speed 2 for 2 minutes. or until dough is smooth and elastic. See Illustration C.

6. Unlock and tilt back head (tilt head models) or lower bowl (bowl-lift models) and remove dough from hook. Follow directions in recipe for rising. shaping and baking.

When using the traditional method to prepare a favorite recipe. dissolve yeast in warm water in warmed bowl. Add remaining liquids and dry ingredients. except last 1 to 2 cups flour. Turn to Speed 2 and mix about

1 minute. or until ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Proceed with Steps 4 through 6.

Both methods work equally well for bread preparation. However. the “Rapid Mix” method may be a bit faster and easier for new bread bakers. It is slightly more temperature tolerant because the yeast is mixed with dry ingredients rather than with warm liquid.

YEAST BREADS AND QUICK BREADS

Bread Making Tips

Making bread with a mixer is quite different from making bread by hand.

Therefore. it will take some practice before you are completely comfortable with the new process.

For your convenience. we offer these tips to help you become accustomed to bread making the KitchenAid way.

• Start out with an easy recipe. like Basic White Bread. page 47. until you are familiar with using the dough hook.

• ALWAYS use the dough hook to mix and knead yeast doughs.

• NEVER exceed Speed 2 when using the dough hook.

• NEVER use recipes calling for more than 8 cups all-purpose flour or 6 cups whole wheat flour when making dough with a 41⁄2 quart mixer.

• NEVER use recipes calling for more than 10 cups all-purpose flour or 6 cups whole wheat flour when making dough with a 5 quart mixer.

• Use a candy or other kitchen thermometer to assure that liquids are at temperature specified in the recipe. Liquids at higher temperature can kill yeast. while liquids at lower temperatures will retard yeast growth.

• Warm all ingredients to room temperature to insure proper rising of dough. If yeast is to be dissolved in bowl. always warm bowl first by rinsing with warm water to prevent cooling of liquids.

• Allow bread to rise in a warm place. 80°F to 85°F. free from draft. unless otherwise specified in recipe.

• Here are some alternative rising methods to use: (1) The bowl containing the dough can be placed on a wire rack over a pan of hot water. (2) The bowl can be placed on the top rack of an unheated oven; put a pan of hot water on the rack below. (3) Turn the oven to 400°F for 1 minute; then turn it off; place the bowl on the center rack of the oven and close the door.

Cover bowl with waxed paper. if desired. Always cover with towel to retain warmth in the bowl and protect the dough from drafts.

• Recipe rising times may vary due to temperature and humidity in your kitchen. Dough has doubled in bulk when indentation remains after tips of fingers are pressed lightly and quickly into dough.

• Most bread recipes give a range for the amount of flour to be used.

Enough flour has been added when the dough clings to the hook and cleans sides of bowl. If dough is sticky or humidity is high. slowly add more flour. about 1⁄2 cup at a time but NEVER exceed recommended flour capacity. Knead after each addition until flour is completely worked into dough. If too much flour is added. a dry loaf will result.

• Some types of dough. especially those made with whole grain flours. may not form a ball on the hook. However. as long as the hook comes in contact with the dough. kneading will be accomplished.

• Some large recipes and soft doughs may occasionally climb over the collar of the hook. This usually indicates that the dough is sticky and more flour should be added.

The sooner all the flour is added. the less likely the dough will climb the hook. For such recipes. try starting with all but the last cup of flour in the initial mixing process.

Then add the remaining flour as quickly as possible.

• When done. yeast breads and rolls should be deep golden brown in color. Other tests for doneness of breads are: Bread pulls away from the sides of pan. and tapping on the top of the loaf produces a hollow sound. Turn loaves and rolls onto racks immediately after baking to prevent sogginess.

Shaping A Loaf

Divide dough in half. On lightly floured surface. roll each half into a rectangle. approximately 9x14 inches.

A rolling pin will smooth dough and remove gas bubbles.

Starting at a short end. roll dough tightly. Pinch dough to seal seam.

Pinch ends and turn under. Place. seam side down. in loaf pan. Follow directions in recipe for rising and baking.
