How to Make Dough in a Sunbeam Heritage Mixmaster

Save

People can get intimidated when making dough for bread, pizza or pastries. The task can be daunting, when considering the kneading, rising and shaping involved. If you use a Sunbeam Heritage Mixmaster, the process does not have to be difficult. This mixer is a stand mixer that comes with a bowl and several different types of mixing implements. To make dough, you must use the dough hook or paddle. The Mixmaster does not heat the dough too much, and makes it much flakier and easier to roll out or shape.

Step 3

Add the liquid ingredients, which may include water, butter, eggs or milk, depending on your recipe, and mix until the dough looks like small pieces of gravel, usually between 30 seconds and two minutes.

Step 4

Test the dough by pinching a small piece together. If it sticks, it is done. If the dough does not stick together, add a tablespoon or two of liquid according to your recipe's ingredients, usually water or milk, and keep mixing.

Step 5

Continue mixing until the dough forms one large ball in the mixing bowl. On a low to medium speed, this will take between one and four minutes. Your motor might start straining to turn as the dough forms.

Tips & Warnings

  • It is important to keep the dough cool. If it starts to feel warm, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to cool it down.
  • Once the dough is formed in your Sunbeam Heritage Mixmaster, take it out and follow the recipe for finishing your bread, pizza dough or pastry.
