Tricks of the Trade

I make a lot of dough each week and use a lot of flour.  Anyone who bakes knows adding the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients can be a dusty experience!  This is what I do to make to make adding the dry ingredients less messy:  I add all of my dry ingredients to the wet at once and cover my trusty Kitchenaid mixer with a towel.  I turn the mixer on to low and know the dough is fully mixed by the sound the mixer makes.  I used to count to 20 to know the mixing was complete but I am often counting out the next batch of ingredients and would lose track of what I was counting!  The mixer makes a distinctly different sound when the dough is fully mixed.  :)
