My new Toy


As I said before, the old mixer which I have used for the last 6 years is making a few age related noises, probably due to the overwork it has suffered. I decided that a retirement would be the kindest thing for it and found the above as a replacement.

Of course, having had such a long relationship with my old machine, I had got to know all its little quirks, and could get the best out of it, so a new machine meant a learning curve.
I also wanted to try the Beetroot and Onion Spiral rolls again, with a reduced hydration, before the pop-up.

I made three doughs, a wholemeal, an Onion and the Beetroot, they rose beautifully after a shorter knead than I used to do in the old mixer.

I assembled the rolls and they looked pretty good before baking,

Before second rise.

After second rise.
and baked as usual.

The results are excellent, so not only have I got a new mixer, I've saved time as well.

I think I'm ready to bake in earnest.
