Sebby & I recently took posession of a lovely KA Artisan mixer (delayed xmas gift) and I was wondering if folks have any go-to recipes, particularly for breads, that benefit from its touch? How about bread cookbooks?
The only thing I've made so far is the recipe for basic white bread in the included pamphlet. Let's just say it lives up to its billing as basic, and the rest of the recipes aren't exactly inspiring. The Gourmet cookbook has a few interesting-looking breads, as does Hazan's Essentials.
I'm verrrry much a novice breadmaker, but have been enjoying the learning process, despite some failed attempts (the Lahey no-knead method has produced the best results I've made so far, but now that we have a mixer, it can knead for me).
