I have been making my own bread for several years now. There is just nothing that compares to home baked bread. The flavor is fabulous. I had been using my Kitchen Aid stand mixer for mixing and kneading the dough. It performs beautifully. I love my Kitchen Aid. I was only making two loaves at a time which will last our family about a week. This was fine. I enjoy making bread.
Then I heard about the Bosch Universal Mixer and how it could mix and knead dough for six loaves of bread. Six. Can you even imagine? I thought about this for weeks. I desperately wanted one. I know, I know. I didn’t need another stand mixer. Then my sweet mister told me to go ahead and buy it. So I bought one and it is all mine now. I am giddy with excitement. I am a gadget geek.
All 800 watts of power. I love listening to the motor as it mixes. Here are the accessories it came with. Wire whisks to mix cake batters, cookie paddles for cookie dough or heavier batters and a dough hook along with an extender for smaller batches of dough. There are other configurations you can get that don’t include the cookie paddles.
I made a video on how to make bread with the Bosch mixer. This is the first video I ever made. I’ll admit it was a bit intimidating to film this. This video will show the capacity of this mixer.

Here are my six loaves cooling. This will be enough bread for 3 weeks. I just bag each loaf and place it in the freezer. Making and freezing bread is healthier since you control what goes into it. Start to finish I spent a couple of hours making this recipe. A lot of that time was waiting for the dough to rise and then bake. So you can multi task while you are baking.
I don’t think I will ever go back to store bought bread again. Making bread is very simple. Think of the ingredients. Flour, yeast, sweetener, water and oil. Simple ingredients. I hope this inspires you to try making bread. You don’t have to have a stand mixer. Just get in the dough with your bare hands. Very therapeutic.
