As you may have noticed, these 3 simple to make, yet extremely delicious authentic recipes call for the utilization of the best stand mixer for making bread dough, cake or pastry dough. This is due to the fact that by mixing it with another utensil such as a spoon, the mixture will not blend in as smoothly as it can. What this will equate to is a chunky cake, bread or pastry that is filled with oxygen bubbles and lumps, which essentially defeats the purpose of baking a soft, moist and delicious cake that even a baby with no teeth could consume quite easily. As such, ensure that you acquire a stand mixer for optimum results.
