I have a an expensive Kitchenaid Artisan I persuaded my husband to buy me one Christmas. It only ever worked intermittently and when I approached Kitchenaid they replaced it (it had a two year warranty and I'm beginning to see why). I was really impressed with their after sales service but now I'm having the same problem all over again - power is going to the machine but it's not switching on. Like other buyers, I really can't be doing with boxing it up and sending it off yet again - especially if I'm going to have the same problems with a third machine. I think I may just cut my losses and go back to the more reliable Kenwood brand.

Hi there
I have the kitchenaid artisan and I use mine to make bread every weeks. I let the machine do the kneeling as I would probably run out of stem or bake less. I use to use the Braun food processor with o dough hook, but no comparison. In my mind there is no better.pavlovas turn out light as a feather and all my breads are very tasty and light. Especially the crumpets.
Good luck and enjoy.

Hi pixie
Yes I have this book, but there are so many other receipes out there. I made a new one yesterday. Gluten free and the flour is from dove and so is the receipe. Made it in a high round cake tin. Looked like a cake , but tasted excellent and very light. Could not have done this dough by hand. Rather a wet dough.
I use the receipe from Lakeland which came with the packaging when I bought the rings. It is amazing how light they are when you tweak the receipe a bit. so easy to make and never will buy them in a shop again.

I love crumpets......do you add the bicarb after the first rise?

I use Doves...I like the spelt flour both wholemeal and plain.

No I put 3/4 tsp bar carb on the first and only rise. Have you tried the bachaldre mill flour. Cheaper via amazon or you can get it now at morrisons. Do you use fresh yeast or sachets? I have now switched to fresh and the difference is quite great.

Sachets Sabine...you can get fresh from the supermarket but it's hit and miss if they have any.

the regional flours are really popular nowadahave a recipe that calls for "Cream Flour" it's Irish and plain with a tad of rising agent.....glad we get a choice now.

Charlie says:
You can freeze live yeast guys, so next time it's in stock buy a load, freeze then it's always on hand. I read that it needs 2 hours at room temp tho before using

Bertinet sell it and it comes in little packages......ready for freezing. on his website.

Me too about the choices. Have tried Sainsbury's fresh yeast, cheap but not as good as Shiptons yeast. I tend to buy it in 500 g. Pack and just keep enough in the fridge for a few loaves or cakes. The rest I cut and wrap and freeze it. It will last for 1 year+. Usually it's 1 ounce to 7g dried yeast. Try it, just get a small amount and see if you prefer that . I still have dried yeast on standby just in case I run out.

Hi Charlie

Many thanks
Sabine

Hi pixie
Thanks for that. Will check it out later. How do you do your crumpets. On the strobe or in the oven. I have a flat griddle stone for the stove and I can make 6 crumpets in one go. The recipe I have is for 12 crumpets. Ideal for breakfast. Sometime I prepare the dough ready last thing at night and keep it in the fridge for a slow rise , or iI just put the bowl in the pantry where it is a bit cooler, but they are ready to use in the morning.

'S Ivan....crumpets!

Wow, I love to have on of those. I have a Gas 2 oven Rangemaster about 15+ years old. I did tell my husband, the new house will have to have one, preferable multifuel as I hate powercuts

Did Ivan know what we are talking about or dose he think he gets multiple of whatever he loves

Oil...and I do love it. It means I can cook on a whim whenever and I secretly laugh when people come as the first thing they do is warm their bum on the aga!

I can just see it.we did look at a house in Kent in the middle of nowhere and it was cold close to freezing. They had and Aga and yes I was ready to climb on to it, but I resisted. We did not buy the house, as it had damp and was growing indoor mushrooms. Hopefully we will be moving next year.
