My eight month old Kenwood died yesterday while struggling with the new classic formula. It used to handle four loaves of the old classic formula without a whimper, but could not cope with the heaviness of this mix, even though I repeatedly gave it two-minute rests.The problem started when I first started the mix, so it’s not a length of time issue.
I ended up throwing out the dough, as it was too difficult to to knead it by hand. I used the same day levain method…could that have been the problem? Any ideas of what I should try when I get a new mixer?
