A very Kenny Christmas

Michelle guessed it - yesterday we went out and picked up Kenny the Kenwood chef mixer, a very cool Christmas pressie from my Mum & Dad.

Hello, I really am a baking machine =)


I had been agonising over what I should make first.
Of course, cupcakes were the obvious choice - but I wanted something super special.
Then again, I was nervous about making something brand new - if I didn't work I would feel like my Kenny was cursed!!

We were talking about cooking pizza for dinner last night to try out the pizza stone I gave the Boy, when I realised I could use Kenny to mix up a homemade pizza dough - we could both debut our new kitchen goodies together and we could use up some ham!! - perfect!!!

We used the recipe book that came with him (!!) - it had a simple pizza recipe using flour, water, oil and salt.
Here's Kenny in action:


Ready to rise:

ok, this bit was a bad idea - we had some serious sticking issues after the pizza came out of the oven, and I suspect it is due to letting the dough rise on the stone - next time we will for sure let it rise somewhere else, then transfer it to a REALLY well floured stone

In the oven:


And all ready:


Deeeelish

Now, what to mix next?
