I'm new to bread making and hubby said.......oh I won't buy bread today cos youre making a loaf...so looks like I'm stuck, not that I mind, rustic bread is absolutely delicious. Today I'm using a recipe from The Bread Bakers Apprentice and noticed instructions for using a mixer and hook attachment. I like kneading but 10 minutes seems to drag by. I was wondering if it was worth my while buying a mixer specifically for making bread. I don't do cakes or biscuits etc Has anyone else invested in one ??
