? hand stirring

Just want to know whether this would work with hand stirring. I notice that you specify stirring with an electric mixer. I much prefer recipes I can stir only by hand, and find that with cakes it works pretty well... but haven't tried yeast-based doughs

Hi julietta! You can totally hand mix this bread if you're careful to do it relatively quickly for a full two minutes. The reason I recommend using an electric mixer in this recipe is because a certain amount of gluten development in the batter is key in order for the bread to rise by trapping rising C02 bubbles from the yeast. If the gluten isn't developed enough, the bread won't rise. I usually hand mix most of my doughs too but I figured it would be easier for other bakers to use an electric mixer in this case. Good luck!
